"Miracle" is a bubblegum pop dance song written by Yoon Hyosang, and produced by Lee Soo Man for Super Junior 05's first album, Twins. The song was mixed by Lee Sunghoo of SM Yellow Tail Studio and it was originally published by Orec Songs, with the support of BMG Music Publishing Korea, the original title of the song being "Life Couldn't Get Better."
"Miracle" is Super Junior 05's second promotional single for the album after "TWINS (Knock Out)." It was first performed on February 12, 2006 on SBS's music program, Popular Songs. Promotional performances for the track began on February 14, 2006, soon following the release of the single's music video on February 24, 2006. "Miracle" is Super Junior's third performing single after "TWINS (Knock Out)" and "Show Me Your Love." It was also the second song produced by SM Entertainment that topped overseas music charts in Thailand of Channel V, the first being TVXQ's "Rising Sun." Promotional activities for "Miracle" continued well throughout March and April until the release of their first official single, "U" in May.
"Miracle" was first released in Super Junior 05's debut studio album, Twins on December 5, 2005. However, official promotions for this single did not begin until February 12, 2006. The promo-single is longer and slightly differ from the original. The promo-single has an added techno-inspired bridge just before the climax of the song with an addition of two extra solos from Siwon and Ryeowook. Being a typical bubblegum pop track, "Miracle" became popular among children and young adults, successfully topping charts in Korea as well as overseas charts in Thailand. The song contains typical light-hearted lyrics concerning love and miracles.
"Miracle" topped many singles charts in South Korea since it was released in February 2006, achieving a much more satisfying result than their last single, "TWINS (Knock Out)." The single topped Airplay charts and remained #1 for three consecutive weeks. Although the single received overwhelming results, it failed to win a Mutizen Song for the group. Nonetheless, the single continued to receive success and debuted as #1 in Thailand's charts on March 21, 2006. "Miracle" was the second song produced by SM Entertainment that topped overseas music charts in Thailand of Channel V after TVXQ's "Rising Sun." The song stayed as #1 for four consecutive weeks.
The music video starts off with Super Junior 05 huddling together, crying out random dialogue. They join together, yell out "Miracle," and begin to dance together. The video then shoots into their dance in the studio, to some of the members' random horse playing, to a walk through a sea of fans, and into a traveling bus where they continue to fool around. The video ends with Super Junior performing the song on stage with over one thousand fans watching them.
A majority of the music video was filmed in a studio, where they perform their dance choreography under colorful studio lights. A part of the video was also shot in a traveling bus and in the city, where it showed many Super Junior fans screaming for them.
Similar to the lyrics and music style of the song, the dance choreography for the music video contains light-hearted motions. Arm and leg movements that form heart shapes are used, creating the choreography to be lively and happy. During the dance bridge, some upbeat waving and locking techniques are also used, mainly performed by the group's four lead dancers: Eunhyuk, Donghae, Shindong, and Han Geng.
