The K-Pop boy group Super Junior is at it again to cause uproar in Manila with their 3rd Asia Tour at the Araneta Coliseum on February 26th.
Super Junior is currently tagged as the largest boy group in Korea and as one of the largest in the world. The group consists of LeeTeuk, HeeChul, YeSung, KangIn, ShinDong, SungMin, EunHyuk, DongHae, SiWon, RyeoWook, KiBum, HanKyung and Kyuhyun, but three, namely KiBum, HanKyung and KangIn, are inactive due to various reasons. They debuted in 2005 under SM Entertainment and have garnered interest locally and as well as internationally since.
Super Junior is not only known for their massive member count but as well as their talents and wits. With their debut album, they have reached 3rd in the Korean charts and that is amazing feat for a rookie group. Their success and popularity skyrocketed with their succeeding albums, all of which have been released in various Asian countries and have reached number one in various international charts as well. Aside from that, Super Junior is also the first and only K-Pop artist with six albums that reached number one in the Philippines – “Sorry Sorry” in September 2009, “Super Girl” in November 2009, “Super Show 2 Live Album” in February 2010, “Don’t Don” in May 2010, “Bonamana” Version A&B in July 2010 and “Bonamana” Version C in August 2010.
Super Junior’s 4th album “Bonamana” is the best-selling Korean album in 2010 with over 250,000 copies sold in Korea alone setting a new record and pushing the standards of Korean music way up. The album has also been greatly successful in other countries as well, such as Japan, reaching number 5 in the Oricon chart; Taiwan, topping the charts for 34 straight weeks; China and Thailand, ranking number 1; and the Philippines, hitting the 1 million peso mark less than a few hours after its official album launch. The accomplishments above only signal a promising future for the group.
Also, as not to waste the individual talents of the members, they have branched out to participate in the different aspects of the entertainment industry, which include acting, hosting and disc jockeying. The group has also been divided into sub-groups to further unleash and make known the individual recognition of each member in their respective areas of specialty.
In line with their success, they decided to hold their first ever concert tour called Super Show in the year 2008-2009. During their first show in Korea, the tickets issued were sold out in 10 minutes triggering them hold to an encore concert. The encore concert received an even greater result as because the tickets flew to the hands of the fans in a span of 5 minutes when the ticket selling started. The same scenario happened in their 2nd Asia Tour but this time their tour stops had expanded to a total of 15 shows in 7 different countries including the Philippines.
The Super Show 2 held last year was a definite success in all the countries due to the shocking and unexpected response from the international fans. As evident in the scenarios at the airports in different countries wherein hundreds of fans caught security off-guard and caused chaos just to catch a glimpse of their idols. The said concert tour also exceeded everyone’s prospects with its sprawling stage design, spectacular sound system and interactive performances with special guests.
Super Junior kicked off their 3rd Asia Tour at the Olympic Gymnastics Arena in Seoul. A lot of famous personalities in the entertainment industry were reported to have watched the concert to show their support for the group. In this year’s Super Show 3, Super Junior is expected to be performing 35 songs in approximately three hours. Performances will include selected hit songs from their albums, special stage solos, breathtaking mid-air stunts and hilarious parodies of various artists.
This is one of the most awaited K-Pop concerts of the year around Asia and it is definitely something to anticipate for.
