Super Junior to hold Asean concert tour, stop in Malaysia planned

SEOUL: South Korean boy band Super Junior is planning an Asean concert tour, with a stop in Malaysia.
Band leader Park Jeong-su, better known by his stage name Leeteuk said the group was hoping and is always ready to meet its Southeast Asian fans.
“We are touched by their support and like to learn more about the culture of the people in Asean and are personally doing some research about the countries,” Leeteuk told Asean journalists here recently.
The journalists were on a nine-day visit to South Korea from Oct 12 under the 2017 Exchange Visit of Asean and Korean Media People.
Super Junior was formed in 2005 and originally debuted with 12 members.
Some of the band members have already visited many Asean member states, including Indonesia, Cambodia, the Philippines and Thailand, and were impressed with the development taking place in the respective countries.
Leeteuk also disclosed that the group would be releasing a new album on Nov 6 to celebrate its 12th anniversary.
"The date is meaningful to us and we are putting a lot of effort in preparing it and all the members of the group participated. We also wrote the lyrics ourselves," he added.
Shindong interjected that the group would be releasing another album in 2019.
Meanwhile, Eunhyuk said artistes in the Asean region were also capable of becoming famous pop groups if they persevered in their endeavour.
"I'm sure there will be Asean pop groups in the respective countries as they have the capabilities," he said.
On the secret of the group's success which helped the members to survive in a competitive industry," he replied, "We don't have any secret but as we grow older and older, we always strive to do our best."
On their future plans, Shindong, Eunhyuk, Leeteuk, Yesung and Donghae said in unison that they aimed to stay in the industry for as long as possible.
As a famous boy band, Eunhyuk maintained, Super Junior was not promoting Korean culture to the world.
"Probably, our fans start to love our Korean food when they like our songs and Korean movies and have the interest to learn more about our country," he surmised.
Super Junior became internationally famous following the release of their best-selling single "Sorry, Sorry" in 2009, which was the title song of their album, "Sorry, Sorry".
