SS501 debuted on 8 June 2005 with their first single "Kyeonggo" ( Korean :"경고", "Warning"); a second single, "Snow Prince", was released in late 2005. The group was inactive in Korea for most of 2006, although they had a fan meeting in Japan in April of that year.The reason was due to Heo Young Saeng's throat condition, which required a surgery, thus resulting in a need for time to fully recover.In mid-2006, they held their first successful concert, "Step Up Concert" in Osaka , Japan. In late 2006, they returned to Korea in order to promote their first full album, which was released on 10 November and was entitledS.T.01 Now. Singles from the album included "Unlock" and "Four Chance". Alongside promoting the album on various variety and music shows, they also filmed a show on MNet, which was calledSOS. The group (excepting Heo Young Saeng, who was recovering from the surgery) also lent their voices for the 2006 animated moviePi's Story.

Later in 2007, the group debuted in the Japanese market. A Japanese fan club was established with the name "Triple S Japan"; it officially debuted on 25 March 2007, when SS501 had their first official meeting with the club. The group at this time released their Japanese single "Kokoro", alongside multiple versions, including one with all members and five featuring each member individually. The single debuted at No. 5 on the Oricon chart,and moved to No. 3 the next day. It was also chosen as an ending theme song for an anime entitledBlue Dragon. A full album was released later that year. SS501 also received the newcomer award in Japan; this was the first time for Korean artists to receive this award.

In 2008, SS501 returned to Korea with their singleDeja Vu, which was released on 8 March 2008. The title track was the first song to be promoted, and they began their comeback on music channel M.Net'sM Countdown.After success with their single "Deja Vu", they began to promote their second single, "A Song Calling for You". They performed their Goodbye Stage onMusic Bankon 6 June 2008, to return to Japanese activities.
