Super Junior has set a record for being No. 1 on Taiwan's KKBOX Korean Weekly Albums Chart for the longest period in history, starting from when they topped the chart in November 2017.

KKBOX is the largest online music sharing platform in Taiwan, founded in 2004, and now boasts over 10 million users domestically and internationally.

Since 2010, Super Junior's extreme popularity in Taiwan can be seen as the boy group's songs take the top spot on domestic music charts following their release. The band also consistently broke their persona record for the longest-running album at No. 1 on KKBOX Korean Weekly Albums Chart in history.
