MANILA, Philippines – Filipino fans are saddened to know that Super Junior will not hold a concert in the Philippines this year.
Happee Sy, whose Pulp Live Productions brought Super Junior’s Super Show here in 2010 and 2011, announced on Facebook that due to “reasons that are beyond our control,” there will be no Super Show 4 in the country.
Super Junior kicked off their “Super Show 4: Super Junior World Tour” last November in Seoul.
“Unfortunately, Philippines won’t be part of SS4 [Super Show 4]. It is because of reasons that are beyond our control,” she wrote.
Sy said the decision was made by SM Entertainment, Super Junior’s agency.
“It was their side’s decision, which we have to respect, coz they know what’s best for their artists/show. Thanks guys for understanding and for always supporting the boys,” she added.
Fans were hoping that the Philippines would be chosen as one of the stops in Super Junior’s world tour.
More than 500 comments were posted on Sy’s announcement on Facebook.
“In tears but I understand we cannot do anything,” posted Emihei Umali on Sy’s Facebook page.
Thessa Tiu commented, “So sad. I hope SM changes its mind.”
“I feel bad about it but it’s alright,” posted Mae Reformado.
Last Dec. 10 and 11, the boys held the concert at the Kyocera Dome Osaka in Osaka, Japan.
The next stop will be Taiwan, where Super Junior will hold Super Show 4 for four days from Feb. 2 to 5 at the Taipei Arena.
From Taiwan, Super Junior will hold the Super Show 4 in Singapore on Feb. 18 at the Singapore Indoor Stadium.
