K-Pop group Super Junior thrills strong Malaysian crowd

KUALA LUMPUR: K-Pop group Super Junior wowed a 10,000-strong crowd last night at its concert Super Show 5, held at the Putra Indoor Stadium, Bukit Jalil.
The group is known for its strong showmanship, and the members certainly didn't disappoint the crowd. 

Presenting a total of 28 popular songs, Super Junior showed off impressive vocal and dance skills, complete with a few surprises that thrilled the crowd to no end.

The nine Korean members, Siwon, Donghae, Kyuhyun, Eunhyuk, Sungmin, Shindong, Ryeowook, Kangin and Heechul, were joined by their sub-unit Super Junior-M members Henry and Zhoumi, giving Malaysian fans extra enjoyment.

Super Show 5 also celebrated the return of Heechul to the group from his 23-month national military service. 

Among the songs performed were Mr Simple, Sorry Sorry, Sexy, Free & Single, Marry U, Super Girl and Rock Star.

One highlight of the concert was the parody performance of female artistes' dances where Siwon, Sungmin, Kangin and Ryeowook dressed up as Korean stars Son Dambi, Hyuna, Ga In and the girl group S.E.S respectively. 

Fans held up their blue lightsticks in time with the music and they cheered and screamed at the top of their lungs for more throughout the concert. 

Super Show 5's big turnout proves that the group still has what it takes to be mega-popular, despite having debuted in 2005 and with many new groups popping up since then.

"Apa khabar?" Canadian-Chinese Henry said to the crowd. "It's been a long time since we've been back here."

"I'd like to take this opportunity to thank everyone here for showing us so much love and support. It's because of you that we get to be here tonight. We're so happy to be back."

Super Junior last had their concert in Malaysia in 2011 for Super Show 3. Super Junior-M, consisting of Donghae, Ryeowook, Sungmin, Kyuhyun, Eunhyuk, Siwon, Zhoumi and Henry, was here last year for the Asia Super Showcase. Earlier this year, Siwon came to Malaysia to endorse the LINE messaging app.

The concert was organised by Star Planet and presented by Spritzer.
