K-Pop’s Super Junior ‘looking forward’ to performing at KCon in Saudi Arabia
According to Shindong in an interview with Arab News, the group is anticipating “appropriate fandom culture. I’m hoping that musicians and listeners will collaborate to improve society,” he remarked.
According to Donghae, who will be playing in Saudi Arabia for the first time in a while, he is excited to hear the fans’ ovations once more. I want to perform in Saudi Arabia as soon as possible because I know how well-liked K-Pop is there.
He made a pledge to his fans: “We will make you happy and (give you) precious memories — as much as the time you waited.”
We would be honoured if many upcoming singers took Super Junior as an example and achieved success,” he told Arab News. I want to present to you music and performances that can make a difference right now.
Siwon expressed his desire to work with regional artists in the Kingdom throughout the conversation. “I sincerely hope that this will occur. I think cooperation in the area of cultural exchange is a positive step forward for both nations,” he remarked.
Leeteuk was shocked to see that K-Pop is popular throughout the Kingdom. “I was shocked and moved once more by their fervour. I’ll do everything I can to earn back their fervent affection,” he promised.
“We will be able to show you Super Junior and Super Junior-D&E’s performance together, so you will be able to see the charm of our diverse music and performances,” Eunhyuk, who will perform twice at the event expressed.
