They are probably deemed as South Korea’s most popular boy band around the world today and if there was a breakthrough song that made them rise to fame it would be their “washing-hand” song (because of the dance move), Sorry Sorry.
You don’t even have to be a Super Junior fan or a Korean-pop lover to know them – they are that famous. The South Korean boy band rocked the Singapore Indoor Stadium over the weekend with their two-day sold-out concerts, Super Junior World Tour: Super Show 4 (SS4), as more than 11,000 fans – mostly girls – screamed their lungs out.
Unlike last year’s Super Show 3, also held at the Singapore Indoor Stadium, the stage for SS4 was slightly different. “For SS4, the stages comprises of more movable stages which not only makes it more dynamic and dramatic, but even more visually appealing,” explained Super Junior’s leader, Leeteuk at a press conference held before the concert on Sunday.
Once the lights were dimmed, you could feel the unified atmosphere among the fans. The entire stadium turned into a sea of sapphire blue as fans waved their blue glow sticks in a rhythmic manner. The nine-member South Korean boy band, donning fanciful suits, kicked off their concert with their opening salvo, Superman. Special appearances by F(X)’s Sulli and Amber also spruced up the night. Together they performed the song, Oops, during which a visual display of Kim Heechul (the member of Super Junior who enlisted in the army late last year) drove some fans to tears.
Also on the menu: Henry Lau, a member of one of Super Junior’s sub-group, Super Junior M, who kicked off the solo-performance segment with the song, Billionaire. Other members kept the audience in awe with their individual performances, such as Kyu Hyun playing the harmonica to the tune of Isn’t She Lovely, Ryeo Wook singing Moves Like Jagger, and Shin Dong’s comical interpretation of 4-Minute’s Hyuna’s Bubble Pop and Trouble Maker. The South Korean boy band also performed a couple of their recent hits such as Mr Simple and A-Cha.
Like all other Super Junior concerts, the stage allowed for close interaction between the Korean idols and their fans, with some members of the group standing on raised platforms so that they could greet their fans. Towards the end of the concert, Leeteuk burst into tears when they sang Our Love, touched as he was by the show of support from the fans in Singapore.
After three hours and 36 songs, Super Junior wrapped up the concert with the song, Destiny, as they went around the stage bidding goodbye and saying thank you to fans at the Indoor Stadium. It was a befitting finale – for Super Junior member Leeteuk, this world tour will be his last as he is set to enlist in the armed forces later this year, making this the last time fans here can see him in action.
Still, he promised: “It is not the end, as soon as I am out of the army, I will (rejoin the group).”
Well, his fans can have something to look forward too.

Super Junior performed to a sold out crowd at Singapore Indoor Stadium
It’s almost impossible not to like these nine hard-working, talented and well-mannered boys from Korea collectively known as Super Junior.
They showed just why over two nights at the Indoor Stadium as they sang, danced, joked and teased their way into the hearts of the sell-out capacity crowd.
In town for the Singapore leg of their SuperShow 4 World Tour, the current SuJu line-up features Kyuhyun, Sungmin, Shindong, Eunhyuk, Siwon, Donghae, Yesung and Ryeowook.
Much of the pre-concert buzz was over whether de-facto band leader Leeteuk — who is due for a call-up to the Korean military any time now — would be able to make his Singapore appointment.
So it was no surprise the fans reserved their loudest shrieks when the 28-year-old took to the stage on opening night on Saturday.
Racing through a 36-song setlist that kicked off with the rousing opening number SuperMan, the boy-men from Korea captivated their nearly 6,000-strong audience of mainly teens and students right from the start and never let go.
Just like the opening concert which kicked off their world tour in Seoul last November, fans were treated to a spectacular light-and-laser stage production that cost over S$2 million to produce.
It had it all: fireworks, water fountains, flying bicycles, suspended cranes and the main centrepiece — a sprawling 360-degree stage that extended to all corners of the Indoor Stadium.
High-tempo booming numbers like Mr Simple, Perfection and A-cha got the fans on their feet as the boys displayed their trademark high-energy choreography that has inspired countless wannabes.
Every chance they got, individual members got as close to the fans as possible, thanks to the stage design that allowed fans to come within touching — and shrieking — distance of their idols.

If you ever spot a shop selling pepper crabs along the streets of Seoul, Korea, don’t be too surprised. The boys of Super Junior may just be the owners of the restaurant.
Back in Singapore for their Super Junior World Tour Super Show 4, the Korean boy band showed up at the press conference before the start of their show, donning their first costume of the night.
The nine members — Leeteuk, Yesung, Shindong, Sungmin, Siwon, Eunhyuk, Donghae, Ryeowook and Kyuhyun — shared with local press what their most memorable moments in town were.
“We’ve been here many times, but we still feel that this is a beautiful place. We really want to travel here, not for shows, but to really tour,” said Leeteuk.
The leader added that the group loved the pepper crabs here so much, that they hoped to bring the local delicacy back to Korea.
In an exclusive email interview with xinmsn before the lads’ arrival in town, Leeteuk also mentioned that they “always have good memories in Singapore, because the fans always welcome us and meet us whenever we visit.”
Lee Teuk, 28, the charismatic leader and spokesman of K-pop’s hottest boy band Super Junior will perform in the Super Show 4 concert here tomorrow and Sunday. Worried fans have been speculating online as to whether their beloved idol will fly in today with the rest of his band members.
Lee Teuk is due to enlist in the Korean military anytime. Korean men have to serve between two and three years of compulsory national service and can defer their call-up only until they are 30.
Lee Teuk, like many other Korean celebrities, had deferred his enlistment due to career commitments. Enlistment can be detrimental to an entertainer’s career, but draft dodgers are widely frowned upon in Korea. K-pop superstar Rain, 30, enlisted last October with a final tearful salute to his fans for “10 years of love”. Actor Won Bin, 34, joined the military in 2005, but was discharged seven months later because of a knee injury.
Speaking to The New Paper, a spokesman for concert organiser Running Into The Sun (RITS) confirmed that Lee Teuk will be part of the concerts here. She said: “As he can get called up any time, he was supposed to give us at least two days’ notice.
“The boys will be arriving at Changi Airport’s CIP Terminal (an elite airport terminal) so fans will only be able to see them at the concerts.”
Siwon and Donghae arrived yesterday as they are promoting their latest Taiwanese idol drama Skip.Beat!, in which they star, alongside Taiwanese actress Ivy Chen.
This weekend’s concerts could well be Lee Teuk’s last before he trades in his pop-star garb for an army uniform.
next concert is on March 10 in Macau. As testament to the group’s massive popularity, the 11,000 Super Junior World Tour Super Show 4 tickets – priced at $228, $168 and $148 – were sold out in twodays last month. The group, which has already performed in Korea, Japan and Taiwan as part of its world tour, will
head to China and Thailand after the Singapore leg.
Disappointed ticket-less fans scrambled online, hoping to find sellers willing to let go of their concert tickets.
On February 18, Super Junior, which is currently visiting Singapore for their world tour titled “Super Show 4,” surfaced a bunch of local newspaper.
Local outlets gave them an enthusiastic welcome, stating it might be the last time of Super Junior visiting Singapore because leader Leeteuk will be joining the army next year.
Currently touring the world for “Super Show 4,” the group has successfully held concerts in Taiwan following the ones held in Korea and Japan. The concert in the Singapore is also receiving a lot of attention.
The concerts for this tour include 36 various and splendid performances by each individual member’s as well as by the whole group members with their hits, including “Sorry Sorry” and “Bonamana.”

Why I love Super Junior? I wasn’t into K-Pop when Super Junior debuted, I started noticing them only after they released Sorry Sorry (in my opinion, THE song that shot them to superstardom and got them where they are right now). My first impression of them was “Why so many members?” and “What’s with the haircut?” While watching EHB, it was then when I realized that these boys began to grow on me. They have a nonchalant approach to fame and they don’t take themselves too seriously, that’s a quality I rarely find in other K-Pop groups. I realize in Korean entertainment world, idol images are shaped and they have to maintain that, but every so often, with SJ members, their real personalities appear in interviews, variety shows, radio broadcasts and especially Super Show. They way they interact with each other make me feel like I’m watching the boys-next-door, approachable, funny, dorky and humble. I guess that imperfection shows that they are real and relatable.
Why I love TwELFs and SPL? When I first started collecting information about Super Junior, I stumbled upon several fanbases, but TwELFs stood out to my attention immediately for several reasons: quality content, good English, pleasing to the eyes & easy to navigate.Like any other new converts, I joined in the fandom bandwagon and participated with gusto especially on Trending Topic projects. I was surprised to know that TwELFs founders were still in college, because they ran a tight ship with the blog and Twitter account. I was even more pleasantly surprised when I communicated via Twitter with the founders, because they were so friendly and unpretentious.
TwELFs blog has meaty content without sacrificing entertainment value. It is informational without sounding too serious and at the same time, provides all the fun tidbits for fans –newly minted or veteran.
SPL is oozing with creativity (e.g. forum members referred to as Students and Super Junior members as Professors!) and over a short period of time has gained the reputation of being one of the most acclaimed international forums for ELFs. SPL keeps making changes for the better and continues to carry out credible projects for Super Junior and ELFs. SPL is a labor of love, and I salute the people behind it, who are such dedicated hard-workers.
