MBC has announced its plans to air footage of the South America concert tour on June 8. Super Junior's fan reaction to the tour was so great that the tickets for the South America concerts were sold out as soon as they were on sale.
Over 40,000 people attended Super Show 5 in South America. Eunhyuk, a member of Super Junior, said, "It felt like a fire that is getting bigger so the South American tour was a very hopeful event for Super Junior. It motivated us to become better."
Although Super Junior member Siwon injured his shoulder at the time, he nonetheless demonstrated his professionalism by performing on stage as best as he could with his fellow members.
Super Junior also attended the "50th Anniversary of Korean Immigration to Brazil" seminar and fashion show to spread global awareness of K-Pop. The group also participated in volunteer work and promoted Korean culture in South America.
