Super Junior’s Super Show 2Korean boy band Super Junior drew thousands of fans when they visited Beijing on Jan. 23.
The concert, part of the popular boy band’s Asian concert tour, was held at the Wukesong Gymnasium. Super Junior sang more than 30 songs, including their big hit “Sorry, Sorry.”
Only 10 of the original 13 Super Junior members performed at the concert including Leetuk, Shindong, Siwon, Sungmin, Yesung, Kyuhyun, Eunhyuk, Donghae, Ryeowook, and Heechul. The other members—Kibum, Hangeng, and Kangin—were absent due to personal commitments.
Zhou Mi and Henry, members of the sub-group Super Junior M, joined the pop group for the show.
For their Filipino fans, however, the day they’ll get to see Super Junior couldn’t come too soon. It will be a K-pop feast when the band finally holds its concert here at the Araneta Coliseum on April 10.
To date, thousands of Super Junior fans have already reserved tickets with PULP Live Productions, the concert organizer.
In an update, PULP Live Productions said it has started calling and sending email to those who have sent their ticket reservations to know their seating preference. Ticket prices range from P900 to P8,500.
Super Junior and Super Junior M’s songs have topped music charts in the Philippines. Super Junior’s third album, “Sorry, Sorry,” was the top selling K-pop album in the Philippines in 2009.
Charts-wise, Super Junior M’s “Blue Tomorrow” and Super Junior’s “Sorry, Sorry-Answer” occupied the No. 1 and No. 2 positions in the Myx International Top 20 Chart for the period January 23-29.
Universal Records Philippines will release Super Junior’s “Super Show 2 Live Album” CD soon.
Super Junior will pass through Taipei, Taiwan, on February 20 to 21; Shanghai, China, on March 6 to 7; and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, on March 20. The tour, dubbed “The 2nd Asia Tour: Super Show 2,” kicked off in Seoul last year.
