SS501 celebrates their 10 year anniversary
A decade of the sweet sounds of SS501! The five heartthrobs, who debuted under DSP Entertainment, have excelled as a group and as solo artists and made a big splash in the acting world since 2005. Members Kim Hyun Joong, Heo Young Saeng, Park Jung Min, Kim Kyu Jong and Kim Hyung Jun won their fans' (aka Triple S) hearts with their undeniable talent and outstanding work ethic. Even though Kim Hyun Joong and Heo Young Saeng are currently serving their mandatory military duty, the remaining three members celebrated their band's 10 year anniversary enough for all five of them on social media.
Kim Hyung Jun went all out! He shared a long message about how grateful he is to have such dedicated fans and members that give him more than they have received. He asked fans to continue to support SS501. He also mentioned how Triple S will always be a part of their lives.
"Lastly, our eternal companions. You are now like our family, friends and dongsaengs who are like the same peas in a pod, Triple S," he wrote.
"I pray that you guys will have good results and only good things happen to you wherever you are. 2005. 6. 8 ~ All of us are, as always, moving forward!"
Kim Kyu Jong had this to say through his Instagram account, "I feel like 10 years went by really fast. When I look back.. there are times for which I am very grateful.. Thank you! I feel like I arrived with all of the people who love SS501!! Thank you ... Let's all be healthy and happy always !! ^^ Got it? Thank you~ I will return the happiness you gave me!! (F.T Island!! You lovable guys, happy 8th anniversary)."
In response to the Saving Mrs. Go Bong Shil actor's message, FT Island's Lee Hong Ki wished the living legendary band a comedic congratulations. "Thank you! And really, congratulations to SS501 on their 10th anniversary! I'm drunk!"
Heo Young Saeng will be discharged from the military on July 30, while Park Jung Min will begin serving his country on July 2. The Boys Over Flowers actor, who enlisted last month, is still involved in a serious legal battle with his ex-girlfriend over assault charges.
