SS501(pronounced as Double-S 501 or Deo Beul E Seu Oh Gong Il in Korean) is a South Korean boy group created and formed by DSP (Daesung Entertainment). The name of the band is a combination of alphabet letters and numbers with a special meaning. The first “S” stands for “Super”. The second “S” is an abbreviation for “Star”. The number 5, 0, and 1 means “five members united as one forever”. SS501 debuted on June 8, 2005 with their first single “Kyeonggo” (Meaning: “WARNING“), and a second single “Snow Prince” released in late 2005. The group was inactive in Korea for most of 2006, although they did have a fan meeting in Japan in April. The reason for this was due to Young Saeng’s throat condition which required a surgery, thus resulting in a need for time to fully recover. But in mid-2006, they held their first successful concert, “Step Up Concert” in Osaka, Japan.

As such, the other three members formed a sub unit with Young Saeng as the leader and released a project album named “U R Man” in November 2008. The first single released was “U R Man”. They also promoted their single for the Boys Over Flowers soundtrack, “Nae Meoriga Nabbaseo” (Korean: “내 머리가 나빠서”, Meaning: “Because I’m Stupid“). Due to the amazing success of the drama, the song resulted in a high number of downloads. After concentrating on their individual activities, the group made a comeback and released their second mini album titled “Rebirth”, with the limited edition being released on October 20, 2009 and the normal edition on 22 October. The limited special edition album included two posters and a 100 page photo diary.
