Music and lyrics

Written by Young Jin Yoo, "Super Girl" was recorded in SM Studios in Seoul, South Korea. The song has a quick electro-synth groove, with quick synthesizers and a techno melody. The composition of "Super Girl" carries a similar sultry beat as some of Yoo's previous works, such as Super Junior's "Sorry, Sorry" and later, Shinee's "Ring Ding Dong".

Quite the opposite of "Sorry, Sorry" lyrically, "Super Girl" deals with letting go of a blind relationship. Written by Aibi, the lyrics is in a point of view of a man, who wants to have "super girl" forget about those who have hurt her. He wants her to be aware of her own positive qualities, and that he will always cherish her as his super girl. In the second half of the song, the lyrics portray the other man pursuing super girl again, and the lyrics tell her that she should avoid him and not trust him, only to be hurt all over again.

Music video

The music video for "Super Girl" was directed by Cho Soo-Hyun and filmed in a studio in Yangsu-ri, Gyeonggi-do, South Korea in August 2009. On 11 September, a 32-second teaser video of it was released throughout Asia, and the full version was released on 14 September on Super Junior's official YouTube channel, China's Sohu news portal, Taiwan's Avex Taiwan homepage and Thailand's GMM website.

The music video, including intercut sequences of choreographed dancing by Super Junior-M, tells a story of a nerd (played by Han Geng) who accidentally crashes into a house party. Warmly welcomed by the DJ and others, Han Geng begins taking random pictures of the people in the party with his cell phone. He comes upon a beautiful girl (Jessica of Girls' Generation), and begins taking photos of her. Annoyed, Jessica pushes him away with a disgusted look. Rejected and hurt, Han Geng walks out of the party. Wanting to catch Jessica's attention one more time, he magically dresses into a suitable party boy attire and confidently walks back into the party, surprising Jessica with his cool appearance, and lures her into dancing with him.
