Ahead of their concert at the SM Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City tonight, August 6, Super Junior’s Main Rapper and Main Dancer Eunhyuk won’t be able to perform due to his father’s sudden passing.
“Due to the sudden news, Eunhyuk was unable to depart for the ‘Super Junior World Tour - Super Show 9: Road in Manila’ concert scheduled for today,” the official account of Super Junior shared.
Label SJ, Super Junior’s label, has asked ELFs for their understanding during these difficult time for the singer. They have also apologized for the sudden notice and insisted on giving Eunhyuk the time and privacy that he needs.
A few days ago, it was also announced that fellow member Choi Siwon would also not be participating in the concert in Manila as he tested positive for the COVID-19 virus. This came after their performance in Thailand wherein the singer was tested after the concert and results came back positive.
Fans have shown their support and understanding on social media.
Aside from Siwon and Eunhyuk, the remaining members––Leeteuk, Yesung, Shindong, Donghae, Ryeowook, and Kyuhyun––will still be performing tonight in front of the thousands of Filipino ELFs who have been waiting for years for their comeback.
Super Junior debuted in 2005, making them part of the second generation of K-pop idols. They debuted with 12 members before adding the youngest member, Cho Kyu-hyun, in 2006.
They recently came back with their 11th full-length album, The Road: Keep on Going, last July. ELFs are in for a treat as this would be Super Junior's second comeback for the year.
