8 Sensational SS501 Songs That Will Trigger Your Inner Triple S
We’re not kidding. We miss SS501!
It has been almost eight years since South Korean boy group SS501 released its eight mini album Destination under DSP Media. The album also marked the final release of the group before the expiration of its contract with the entertainment agency.
Since then, Kim Hyun Joong, Heo Young Saeng, Kim Kyu Jong, Park Jung Min, and Kim Hyung Jun have been pursuing their solo careers.
Although leader Kim Hyun Joong has promised that SS501 will remain intact despite being managed by different agencies, our fingers have remained crossed for a possible comeback of the group since 2010.
And as if hearing every Triple S’ ardent wish for a reunion, Park Jung Min revealed last year that a possible 2018 comeback is in discussion.
While waiting for the much-anticipated return of SS501, let us look back at some of the group’s discography that will definitely trigger your inner Triple S.
“Snow Prince” was the title track of SS501’s second extended play of the same name, which was released in 2005. The song was written by Shin-U, with music by Hwang Seong Je, and went to receive two music show wins.
Aside from “Snow Prince”, the album also contains the track “White Person”, “My Girl”, “In Your Smile”, and “Fighter”.
