If you haven't already heard, one of Korea's hottest boybands, Super Junior, was in town yesterday -- albeit for a very short span of time. In half-a-day, the boys attended a press conference to promote SingTel's launch of the Samsung GALAXY S mobile phone, and shimmied to a hall of 2,000 enraptured fans at Marina Bay Sands, right before catching a homebound flight to Korea.
Originally a 13-member group, only nine (Lee Teuk, Si Won, Hee Chul, Ye Sung, Shin Dong, Sun Min, Eun Hyuk, Dong Hae, and Ryeo Wook) were present last night. Despite the scaled-down numbers, the boys opened the show with a rousing and heart-thumping performance to their latest hit song, 'Bonamana', from their fourth and latest hit music album, Bonamana.
The screams from the crowd went up by a few decibels when the boys took a breather and promptly introduced themselves to exhilarated fans. After they thanked ardent fans for their "love and support", Ye Sung took center stage with his melancholic solo performance of 'It Has To Be You', a track from the recent Korean drama series, Cinderella's Sister.
Super Junior-T, a subgroup which consists of Shin Dong, Lee Teuk, Ye Sung, Sung Ming, Eun Hyuk, and Hee Chul, came on next with their trot-o-licious performance of 'Rokuko', a traditional style of music infused with modern beats.
Love and euphoria filled the air when leader Lee Teuk cried out, "Thank you for the very warm welcome. This is my first time in Singapore!" and Si Won thrilled the fangirls with his love declaration in perfectly-punctuated English, "It's very sweet. I love you! I'm very impressed!"
Before they concluded the night with their mega hit song 'Sorry Sorry', a birthday cake was wheeled out to commemorate Ryeo Wook's upcoming 23rd birthday on June 21. Fans unanimously broke out in Happy Birthday tunes in both English and Korean as the boys let loose onstage and playfully streaked each other's faces with icing.
The birthday boy made a wish and shared his hopes of returning to our sunny shores for a fan-meeting session and a concert in the near future. That's one wish we know thousands of fans would want come true.
