We need as many ELFs as possible for this project in order to make this work. This is perhaps the biggest and most competitive project ever to be initiated amongst ELFs and the K-Pop fandoms. This project means history.
Below are the Korean chart calculation break downs.

It is a known fact according to statisitics that Super Junior’s Mr. Simple is falling behind. In order to ensure top positions and awards, ELF must drive the group to at least the Top 3. However we are barely in the top half and struggling to stay within the top ten.
Since digital sales are pretty much out of the question (as ELF is absolutely no match to half of the Korean population), we will have to result to other means. This costs nothing and is probably the easiest requirement of all.
Many think, “It’s okay. There are probably thousands of other ELFs searching Super Junior. It’s the least of our problems.” Actually, this is the biggest problem. Since digital sales are totally out of the question and album sales are already high, ELFs have no choice but to turn to searching. Every single search counts. We can’t lose the awards Super Junior have waited so long to hold in between their fingers again.
This is their last comeback before hiatus. It’ll be two years without our endearing leader and milky skinned Heechul. Perhaps we don’t owe them anything… but I know they deserve everything. We of all people know how hard Super Junior works and they deserve to be recognized for it. Let us bring Eunhyuk’s 13 award winning streak to light. Let us show Super Junior that their legacy shall forever live on, that we will be with them until the very end and beyond. Let us part of a legend.
So, the project is as follows:
ELFs all around the world will be searching the term: 슈퍼주니어 throughout all music sites. Each region will be assigned to certain sites that they must search and work on getting Super Junior to at least the Top 10.
North America Melon, Nate
South America/Europe Naver, Monkey3
Asia/Pacific Islands Soribada, Mnet
Africa Dosirak, Bugs
You do not need to make an account, pay money, or even play music. All you have to do is search the term and stay on the page for at least two minutes. You can open multiple tabs at the same time and do the search simultaneously. In order to get Super Junior all of the awards and recognition and to finally lead it up to a final close with the Golden Disk, we will have to do this together. We’re Everlasting Friends. And friends do whatever they can to pick each other up. If not even you can help then our boys’ work have gone to waste. They’re tired, and it’ll be a long time until we see all of them together again… some members missing and some back. Let us say a beloved goodbye then welcome them back with open arms. This is a worldwide effort. No, this is an ELF effort.
Please reblog and spread the word. Translate this post to reach an even bigger population of ELFs. Put it on your twitter, youtube, facebook. No credit is needed since this is a collaborative project and it is all about you. Before Bonamana, Hyukjae asked for a thirteen award streak. ELF was not able to bring him that. Let us get all thirteen - for those who go, for those who will be coming back, and for those who will stay.
History is ours, ELFs. All you have to do is make it.
