What would you do if your favourite singer of all time was standing right next to you during a concert?
All just a dream? Not so for fans of Korea’s Super Junior group who performed last Saturday night at the Putra Indoor Stadium, thanks to concert organiser Redstar Presents and event management company Marctensia.
Not only were the fans serenaded up close by these good-looking Korean boys on the really huge RM6 million stage – some of the fans even got the chance to see them in close proximity as they surprised everyone by appearing amongst the crowd.
Considering Super Junior’s popularity and the normally tight security on an act as huge as them, that stunt alone made every sen spent on tickets worthwhile.
Fans were dazzled by their appearance, no one seemed to really mind that three of the 13 were missing from the line-up. The excited screams were so deafening, we were surprised that the stadium did not shatter to pieces.
Unfortunately for The Malay Mail, we had a hard time trying to keep track of who was where with the huge line-up and stage. Constantly keeping count of the number of boys performing on stage became some sort of an obsession after a while.
13 JUNIORS: There were too many members on stage and no one noticed that three were missing from the line-up
Not only did they perform as their main Super Junior group, they had solo performances and entertained the crowd in their sub units as well, which included K.R.Y and Super Junior M.
For the uninitiated, the 13 members of Super Junior would sometimes be split up to form these sub units in order to cater to different audiences.
K.R.Y is targeted at a more mature audience group while Super Junior M performs in Mandarin.
The stage meanwhile, was also put to good use by Super Junior’s screaming admirers.
Various gifts of cuddly soft toys and artificial flowers made out of fabric were constantly seen being thrown up the stage in the hopes that at least one Super Junior member might accept it.
No bras and panties were spotted, however, which goes to show that Malaysian fans are indeed a well-mannered bunch.
We went into the concert initially thinking that Super Junior was just a bunch of boys prancing around with their good looks.
However, we have to admit that we were thoroughly entertained that night. Not only were Super Junior good dancers and not-bad singers, they managed to tickle the funny bones too.
By the end of the night, we were rooting for our own favourite to come serenade us at our corner.
Dressing up as teenage girls and acting out a short skit was part of the highlights of the night.
While Hottest Baby (yes, each of them has their own moniker) Kyu Hyun sang Puff the Magic Dragon, the rest of the members acted out the story of friendship between a baby (Cutie pie Shin Dong with bib and pacifier) and Puff the dragon (with the Dangerous Cinderella Hee Chul complete with a dragon suit).
The rest of the members doubled up as bad guys trying to hurt the baby and the dragon. They include The Living Work of Art (Si Won), The Bubbly Boy (Ye Sung), Lovable Blurness (Ryu Wook), Ultimate Sweetness (Sung Min), Bejewelled (Eun Hyuk), Sexy Fishy (Dong Hae) and Fallen Angel (Lee Teuk).
For a while, we thought that Kyu Hyun and Dong Hae were the most popular among the group. That is, until we realised that all close-ups of each person garnered the same ear-deafening screams from fans.
Altogether, a total of 35 songs were sung throughout the three-hour show, which included the big hit Sorry, Sorry and Supergirl.
