Super Junior released their 10th studio album, The Renaissance, last month with the title track “House Party.” Since its release, the song has been praised for its social distancing message both in the lyrics and performances.

The members recently took part in You Hee Yeol’s Sketchbook speaking about the meaning behind the track and what they had in mind when writing the song.

Leader Leeteuk explained how, because of the pandemic, people have not been able to go out to different places. For many, they now want their houses to be their “happiest place.

Eunhyuk added that they wrote the lyrics to show how they want to “get through this difficult time” together with their fans and send a message of hope!

With our unique and cheerful voice, we wanted to express those feelings!

Throughout the music video, several moments relate to the current global pandemic. Kyuhyun pointed out a particular move where it looks like the members are going to high-five, but they hesitate because of social distancing measures.

With everything going on in the world, Heechul explained how he wishes to conquer the pandemic quickly and that it becomes a distant memory!

By the time children grow up and listen to the song, I hope they go, ‘I love this song. But what is COVID-19?’

— Super Junior’s Heechul
