Henry Lau (born October 11, 1989), better known mononymously as Henry, is a Chinese Canadian singer (His father is from Hong Kong, and his mother is from Taiwan.) and pop violinist. He is one of the two new additional members to the Super Junior sub-unit Super Junior-M, the other being Zhou Mi. Henry’s primary language is English, he is fluent in Mandarin and can speak conversationally in Korean and Cantonese. He also learned French in Canada.
Henry Lau learned to play the violin at age 6 and learned a unique form of dancing called boogaloo popping while in high school. He attended North Toronto Collegiate Institute in grade 9, and attended A.Y. Jackson Secondary School (Toronto) for the rest of his high school years before being chosen at the 2006 SM Entertainment Global Audition in Toronto, Ontario. He also attended University of Toronto (Music Performance Major) briefly. His first appearance was in Super Junior’s “Don’t Don”  music video in September 2007. A few months later, Don’t Don became a number one hit in Korea. In 2008, Henry was added to Super Junior-M and the group debuted in China on April 8, 2008, releasing their “U” remake music video and an album entitled “迷 [Me]” soon after that incorporated Henry’s violin.
Henry returned to the music industry after a year-long break when Super Junior-M and their first mini-album: Super Girl (EP) was released in China on September 25, 2009. In the mini-album, Henry does not display his violin playing.
Henry’s areas of expertise lie in violin, piano, popping and singing. He began violin lessons at the age of six, although he apparently used to cry when he had his violin lessons. After only one year of dancing, Henry was competing in dance (popping) competitions and shows. Henry has gained many performance awards, such as the Canadian Royal Conservatory of Music Silver Medal for Level 10 Violin.

Before debuting as a member of Super Junior-M, Henry appeared as a violinist in Super Junior’s 2007 single “Don’t Don” which caused a controversy among the fans after SM Entertainment officially announced Henry to be a member of a new Super Junior sub-unit. Previously, there were rumors stating that Henry was to be the fourteenth member of Super Junior, stemming from SM’s statement regarding the controversy, which led fans to the form an “Only 13” campaign. However, SM Entertainment later announced that Henry will not be an official member of Super Junior, and is only a guest member
