Stirring with elation at their big haul of three awards (Album of the Year - Mr Simple, Best Male Group and Singapore's Choice for Most Favourite Korean Artist) at the Mnet Asian Music Awards, the band members of Super Junior were more than delighted to field questions from the press at the post-awards press conference held at Marina Bay Sands last night.
When the MC stated that it is time for the last question, leader Lee Teuk spoke up and said, "We have a lot of time still. Let's continue." His fellow member, Eunhyuk, also told reporters "if you have any more questions, please ask me on Twitter" when it was time for them to leave the room.
With three new trophies going into their expanding collection of awards, the boys said that they plan to "display it in their company" and joked, "If it is real gold, we will break it apart. (Laughs)"
Speaking of the tears they shed on stage when they received the Album of the Year award, and when they first received the Best New Artiste award five years ago, they said that they cried then because they had thought of the hardships they went through before debut.
"It is different this time, because these are tears of happiness. We are happy with what we have accomplished thus far," quipped Lee Teuk.
Sung Min added, "I almost cried when Lee Teuk gave the acceptance speech because I feel thankful for having these members with me. They are always giving support to one another; this is definitely tears of happiness.
