After a successful concert in Manila in April last year, K-Pop idol group Super Junior made a big comeback to the country for the continuation of their third Asia tour, Super Show 3, held at the Araneta Coliseum on Saturday, February 26.

Super Junior’s latest concert has eclipsed the success of their previous Manila concert, garnering more support and bigger attendance, as evident in sold-out premium seats, fully-packed Big Dome and more fan-support projects. Super Junior, dubbed as the largest group in Korea and one of the largest in the world for having 13 members, kicked off their 3rd Asia Tour at the Olympics Gymnastics Arena in Seoul last August and has then toured nine cities, including Manila.

Super Junior’s immense popularity in the Philippines made it the first and only K-pop group to have six number one albums in the Philippines, namely “Sorry Sorry,” “Super Girl,” “Super Show 2 Live Album,” “Don’t Don,” and “Bonamana Versions A, B and C.”

Ten members from Super Junior, namely Leeteuk, Heechul, Yesung, Shindong, Sungmin, Siwon, Eunhyuk, Donghae, Ryeowook and Kyuhyun, exceeded everyone’s expectations and entertained their fans with their chart-topping hits such as “Bonamana,” “No Other,” “Sorry Sorry” and “Don’t Don”; showing the group’s excellent vocal prowess, powerful dance choreography and great interactive performances. Fans were up for a special treat when Super Junior M’s Henry and rock band Trax, also from Super Junior’s agency SM Entertainment, made special appearances much to the delight of Filipino and overseas Super Junior fans.

“Super Show 3” producer Pulp Live World Productions, the same company that brought Super Junior to Manila last year, complemented the idol group’s performances with the V-DOSC sound system, which was used for the first time in the Philippines, and a bigger, sprawling stage design that allows group members to get closer and be more interactive to their fans. True indeed, the boys were often seen shaking hands and playing around with their fans, receiving gifts and taking photos with them. Big platforms, laser lights, fireworks, rising and rotating platforms, large monitors and air suspenders make up the extravagant stage. Super Junior sung a total of over thirty songs which included their group performances, special solo stages and tributes.

Any Super Junior fan knows that aside from their singing abilities, Super Junior is also popular for their hosting and showmanship skills, as they hosted the concert themselves and did comical parodies. Girls went crazy when Super Junior’s resident joker and MC, Heechul, performed Lady Gaga’s “Poker Face,” dressed in a tight-fitting mini-black dress and blonde wig. Donghae, Shindong and Eunhyuk had the fans laughing with their performance of Beyonce’s “Single Ladies.” Another highlight of the concert was their unique performance of “No Other” with Leeteuk and Sungmin being suspended on air, throwing confetti to their fans and the rest of the members were on a round, rotating platform. Of course, Super Junior performed their smash hit “Sorry, Sorry,” the song which made them popular in the Philippines.

What made the Super Show 3 concert stand out is the effort and unity of fans in supporting Super Junior by conducting various projects to surprise the group during the show. Before the concert, various fan clubs like SJUPH and SUJU MAD exerted extra effort by preparing Filipino and Korean food for Super Junior and crew and customized banners for the concert. Super Junior was well-received by their fans as evident in various fan projects, deafening cheers and fan chants. “Super Junior has been to a lot of different countries, different cities, but Philippines has been the loudest,” Super Junior M’s Henry said.

Super Junior fans, also called as ELFs or everlasting friends, lighted the Big Dome with sapphire blue, the group’s official color, waving their glow sticks as they cheered on their idols. Super Junior was overwhelmed and touched by the fans’ response with their loud cheers and warm welcome as they kept on saying how much they appreciate and love their Filipino fans.

The three-hour long concert just passed like a breeze as fans demanded for an encore when Super Junior already said their goodbye. But, Super Junior definitely left their fans happy when group leader, Leeteuk, left a message saying that they’ll give better performances and songs on their fifth album. After “Super Show 3,” Filipino fans this early are now requesting the concert organizers Vernon Go and Happee Sy for another Super Junior concert next year. Now, that is super.

    i was not able to see the concert because i’m far away from manila, i live here in cebu but if given a chance to have them here in cebu, then a lot of cebuanos will be dying to see them. i even thought of going to manila on that date, but my work won’t allow me. so i’m hoping that they will have time to be here. i don’t know what’s with those guys but hell yeah, they are superb!
