I want to go to this, if I was in Korea, I would so go! I think everyone’s fine except the SM artists. Maybe because SM Town’s concert’s is on hold they needed to put them to work on something else??

Super Junior PREMIUM Live in Japan


Super Junior will have a Premium Live in Japan this summer on August 2, 2009. Along with doing promotions and touring in Taiwan, Super Junior will take time out to spread some of their love to their Japanese fans.

Just a note, Kibum will not be at the concert due to scheduling conflicts; or so we are told. But really what is the reason for him not participating in the group’s activities? Honestly, I don’t even listen to them, but from what I’m reading he’s been MIA in SuJu for a long while, netizens are getting angry…. I think.

When: August 2, 2009
Where: Tokyo International Forum Hall A
Open/Start: 17:00/18:00
Ticket price: Y9,800 ($102USD)
* Included is a “SUPER JUNIOR ORIGINAL LIGHT” that will be handed out when you enter the Hall.
* Ticket sales were from 5/29-6/3^

Seriously? $102 for a ticket and it’s assigned seating? Man I actually think they beat Amuro in that dept and she’s 10x better than they are. But I guess SuJu doesn’t do a lot of lives in Japan? Oh you also get an original light too! Oh the goodies you get when you spend so much money on one group. I hope all the fans in Japan get what they paid for.

^ If I’m reading the mail correctly it says that the sales for tickets are between those dates. I’ve only recieved this information on 6/2 (yes I know I am late in posting this). Apparently the information was only given to the Fan Club members on a first come first serve basis and if you caught wind of it before the deadline which was 6/3, you could purchase the tickets.

Here’s a comment from SuJu to their fans about the live event. Although they say it’s a 2-day event, in the info I recieved it only mentioned 8/2, not 8/1~2. But on a side note, is it me or does the guy next to the one that’s talking, look like the old Yamapi? Oh~ how I miss Yamapi to look that way. Whoever he though, he’s cute!

SuJu and SS501 @ Taipei

Super Junior, with the exception of Kibum, will be taking part in Taiwan Golden Melody Awards with 12 members.

SS501 will be lead by leader Kim Hyun Joong to meet fans in Taiwan.

South Korea’s top 2 idol groups Super Junior and SS501, will be arriving on 27th noon to take part in Golden Melody Awards and hold a fan meeting respectively, but according to credible sources, both groups’ flight will arrive at 11:05am together, and it’s expected that fans will create a chaos.

One group for Golden Melody, one group for fan meeting
This time Super Junior will be missing 1 member, Kibum will not be following due to drama preparations, it’ll be the first visit to Taiwan for pretty boy Heechul, and the group of 12 is expected to arrive on 27th noon to participate in the red carpet of the Golden Melody Awards on the same day, they’ll also be performing songs from their new album such as “It’s you”, “Sorry, sorry” etc.

SS501 is led by leader Kim Hyun Joong, who has become immensely popular due to his participation in Korean drama “Boys over Flowers”, the group of 5 will be here to take part in the fan meeting held at Taipei International Convention Center on the 28th, 7pm, it’s also expected that in the 3 day 2 night trip to Taiwan they’ll be conducting interviews with print and electronic media.

Currently, Super Junior and SS501’s fans have started quarreling online, with everyone arguing on which flights the groups will be arriving on, and even though the organisers have not released their flight details, but both groups have activities on the 27th, so they’ll have to arrive in Taiwan before noon to make it on time.

Different flights with same arrival time in Taiwan
There are only 2 flights departing from Seoul’s Incheon Airport and arriving in Taipei, which is Cathay Pacific’s CX42 and China Airlines CI9037/Korean Air KE691 alliance flight, both with a 11:05am arrival time, and also arriving at Terminal 1, therefore, the weekend then will surely be filled with fans excitingly welcoming and chasing their idols.
