The third, Kim Kyujong was picked through a contest that DSP put on. He got through all the tough competition and was later chosen for the group.

SS501 debuted in 2005 with their first single ‘warning’, which is an upbeat tempo song. From the same single album they after that come out with another song, this time a ballad entitled ‘never again’. With ‘everything’ 2005 seems to be ss501’s year when they actually manage to secure almost all best newcomer awards available. This achievement is rather impressive considering the act that they only comes out with a single album with only five song, which three of it become a hit.
In 2006, hoping to achieve the same success the have with their first single album, they come out with another single album, this time they tried their luck with another upbeat song called ‘snow prince’ which has the winter feeling to it, they also trying the cute image in this music video. The song shot straight to number one in the Korean music chart, the second song, they once again change their image to dark rockers for the song ‘fighter’, written by a famous songwriter Cho Young Soo and Ahn Young Min, this song also managed to get into top 5.
Finally after one year of debut, ss501 comes out with their first ever full album in November 2006. They have used those one year of performing with two single albums to practice more on their vocal and also live performance. However the title song of the album didn’t get the much anticipated success. This was mainly because of the competition they have during the release of the song. But the come back bouncing once again, with their second song from the album called ‘four chance/4chance’ nicely hits the no 1 in a lot of charts. Not only that they also release their first ever concert DVD title ‘step up’.
After the successes in Korea the boys finally decided the extend their market to Japan, they already has a basic fan base there due to their constant visit to that country performing and others. In mid 2007, all 5 boys departed to Japan after their farewell to Korean fans as they are now focusing on Japanese market. Making Japan as their new home they practice hard not only in singing but also in Japanese language. Finally in august 2007, they released their first ever Japanese single ‘kokoro’ debuting at number 5 in oricon chart. This is another history created by them as the first foreign artist to have their Japanese debut song in the oricon chart. Then in September they released another single ‘distance’ which once again reached number 5 in the oricon chart. On October they finally release the much anticipated self titled Japanese album, their first full Japanese album and on the day of the release the album reached the 8th spot in the oricon daily chart.
Now the boys are back in Korea planning to make a comeback in Korean entertainment world, they are planning to release their third single in February 2008. and after that in summer they will release another single before coming out with a full album in October 2008.
Let wish these boys all the best.
