There were naked bods, plenty of hip thrusts, cross-dressing shenanigans, and cheeky bantering – as expected of any other SUPER SHOW concert previously staged in Singapore and around the world. But what made this year’s SUPER SHOW 5 in Singapore a little different and unforgettable – on top of the somber speech Eunhyuk gave at the end of the concert – were its member line-up and the boys’ heart-warming display of rapport.
First up, it’s member line-up. Think of it as a game of musical chairs: with Kangin’s return, it is now leader Leeteuk and Yesung’s turn to be missing in action from this year’s concert due to their recent military enlistment, as Heechul continues to serve the nation.
Fans at the Singapore Indoor Stadium were clearly more than delighted to see Kangin back in action with his band of brothers. The 28-year-old even did his self-introduction to boisterous cheers last night when he cried out “It’s been some time isn’t it?”
To fill the temporary void left by the trio in the army, Eunhyuk took the lead in introducing the band for most parts of the night, and other members (Siwon, Shindong, Donghae, Ryeowook, Sungmin, Kangin and Kyuhyun) chipped in by being their usual chatty and playful selves.
From their hilarious cross-dressing attempts-gone-wrong to their reappearance as a dream team of superheroes (that outrivals that of The Avengers, true story) - there was not a dull moment with these Korean idols. They kept fans on their feet by fleshing out their goofy sides to incite more laughs and cheers, such as ever-so charismatic Siwon’s failed attempt at passing off as Son Dambi in his ‘Saturday Night’ segment last night.
