Oppa, Oppa (Hangul: 떴다오빠; RR: Ddeotda Oppa, literally: Brother Has Risen) is a digital single by Super Junior sub-group, Donghae&Eunhyuk. It was released on-line on 16 December 2011 by SM Entertainment and distributed by KMP Holdings.

The single was digitally released in Taiwan on 21 December 2011 by Avex Taiwan.[1] It was also released in Japan on 4 April 2012 by Avex Trax, as a CD single with Japanese and Korean versions of the songs.[2]

Background[edit]

The single comprises two songs, the title track "Oppa, Oppa" and ballad "First Love". "Oppa, Oppa", written and produced by frequent collaborators Youngsky and Peter of Korean R&B/hip-hop group One Way, is a retro-disco track that features a "lively rhythm and beat in a retro dance atmosphere" with lyrics implying their group's popularity. The song also has a similar lyrical concept to the group's track with f(x), "Oops!", from the repackaged album A-Cha. It also contains an interpolation of the song "Funkytown" by Lipps Inc. "First Love" is a two-minute piano ballad written by Donghae which serves as a prelude to the title track.

The song was first performed at group's Super Show 4 Seoul concert on 19 November 2011. Then, a month after the performance, SM Entertainment announced that both Donghae and Eunhyuk will promote the song on music shows: Music Bank on 16 December, Music Core on 17 December and Inkigayo on 18 December.[3]

Music videos[edit]

The first music video was also release on 16 December, which features the performance of the song in Super Show 4.[4] Another version was released on 21 December 2011 and was edited and directed by Super Junior member Shindong, marking it his directorial debut.[5] In this video, there are cameo appearances by Amber of Korean girl group f(x), Youngsky, Peter of One Way, and Shindong.
