How to create streaming links

This time around, SJWorld encourages E.L.F who can’t use their coupon because they have no time to stream to share all or part of their coupon through genie streaming links!

You don’t have to share all streams, you may share an amount out our your 100 free streams with ELF who have time on their hands to stream when you don’t. For example if you still want to stream but know you won’t be able to use all 100 streams—each song must be played once per hour so after listening to the whole album you must wait till the next hour to play again.


Via PC
  • Search the artist (ex. Super Junior/Henry/Zhoumi/Yesung/etc.)
  • Go to the song you want to share.
  • Once there, scroll down to the list of songs and select one individually by clicking on the check box. Check images below.
    • Note: The use of streaming link is first come, first serve, so we recommend you only share one song per link.

Screen Shot 2017-10-30 at 12.53.12 AM

  • After selecting the song/s you want to share, press triple dot and then select “공유하기/음악나누기” (Share music).

How to get 50 free streams

Genie runs an event that allows Genie users (users who already have an account) to share invite links that they can share with people who aren’t yet signed up to Genie, but this event IS NOT an ongoing event and will not always appear. If the event goes up again we will notify ELF so they can share with friends or through SJWorld so we can pass it on to ELF who do not have a genie account yet. We recommend waiting until the last week of October/ early days of November and if the event does not go up, people with no genie account that can and want to support may make a Genie account then.

    SJWORLD Project:

    Save It Up 2017!

    ☆★ Info

    SJWORLD is encouraging ELF to begin saving money towards Super Junior’s 2017 Comeback, which will most likely be sometime between end of October – early November.

    If ELF begin saving money as early as now, September 7, more ELF can afford to buy the comeback album. The more ELF buying albums means the higher the chance for Super Junior to top charts and win awards.

    At the moment, SJ’s comeback is rumored to be on their 12th anniversary, November 6, 2017. If that will be true, then we have 60 days from now to save for the comeback.

    Q: Comment on each other’s greatest change before and after army. What do you miss most while being in army?

    EH: The greatest different is.. firstly, he became a real man, became more handsome and gives off a more manly feel.

    DH: What is what a lot of people thinks because there have been a 2 year gap, this is unavoidable. Talking about change, even though we became more manly, but I think we became younger.

    EH: Saying this makes me shy..

    DH: I know you will be shy so I said it first…

    EH: Thank you. Because I was really serious about self management~ To meet everyone after a long time, we really work hard managing ourselves to show everyone our good looking and cool side so to some extend, you can say that we look younger…

    DH: What i miss the most during army (then his voice broke HAHA)

    EH: You are trying to say that it’s them (refers to ELF) right

    DH: Yes of course i miss the fans the most while I was in army and also the members and also doing super show, recording albums, I will think of all the memories on stage.

    EH: Me too! A lot of fans sent in letter and I spent my free time reading them. The letters gave me a lot of strength and it brought back a lot of memories.

    Q: When can we hear D&E’s new song?

    EH: When is our new song coming out? (LOL Hyukjae sounds like he is teasing us here)

    DH: we will first focus on SJ’s activities. even though there are many fans who like D&E, D&E activities are scheduled for next year,

    EH: but we can’t really say for sure, since we like to surprise people and give them gifts so we may say next year but it might not be…  (HYUKJAE IS SUCH A TEASE)

    EH: I wish fans continue to stay curious… (LOL ㅋㅋㅋ)

    DH: it might come out next month~

    EH: yes we might surprise fans any moment, so please anticipate!!

    Q: The song “Winter Love” has left a lot of fans feeling touched, Can you talk about how the song is being composed?

    DH: this song was composed as a gift for our fans before we enlisted and the meaning was for fans to wait for us and also before we enlisted, the only thing we can do for fans was to compose this song…. The song lyrics is about temporary separation. Even though it was autumn, but because we had to part so it felt like winter… It included the meaning that we would go and return well, as a present for our fans.

    Q: How would you describe yourself in the 30s? What will you be like in 10 years?

    EH: We were asked this question quite a lot when we were in our 20s and as I recalled my answer and now that I am really in my 30s, it is different from what I imagined. I still look really young and I’m still doing activities and releasing songs, so I cannot foresee what will happen 10 years later and I feel like it will be different from other people in their 40’s.

    DH: We might still be working hard and promoting~

    EH: Because we want to be together with everyone for a very long time. Therefore, we will work hard to stay together for the next 10 years to continue showing everyone our good sides.

    Q: Each, please say a line that you are confident in Chinese.

    EH: Long time no see my wife (HAHAHA and EunHae both burst out laughing)

    EH: I miss you! Are you ready? I love you all~ (in Chinese) 

    DH: Long time no see I am Donghae. My dear babies (his favourite line LOL), are you all healthy? I am also healthy. Recently, we are preparing our new album so everyone please look forward. I love you all~ thank you! (still speaking in Chinese, as Bel noted that Donghae’s Chinese seemed to have improve as well) 

    EH: Chinese is as easy as eating rice (Hyukjae’s legendary line, lol.. and donghae was lauging)


    Q: what do you want to say to fans who are here to watch your performance?

    EH: Everyone has waited for us for a long time and we really miss everyone, we will never part now right?

    DH: (In chinese) You will enjoy SMTOWN concert

    EH: I love you all (Hae burst out laughing again) You have to keep confessing your love!! It is better if you keep confessing!

    Then Donghae was trying to say other things but Hyukjae kept insisting for him to say I love you all in chinese and Donghae finally did say it! (LOL) ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
