During their recent trip to Singapore, UKiss members Eli, Kevin and AJ shared about their new project – uBeat. uBeat is a sub-group of Ukiss, which includes Eli and AJ, and will be featuring Kevin. Eli shared with us that “Our song is very upbeat, it’s a sad song but has a fun melody. It’s kinda hard to grab the concept, but it’s gonna be really fun.” Kevin also commented that “Fans can really look forward to it, it has been sometime since we worked with Brave Brothers. They produced our album this time. It’s gonna be really good.”
uBeat will be debuting via M!Countdown in Taiwan on25th April, when asked on how the members feel about debuting on a global stage, the members revealed their feelings as being both ‘nervous and anticipating’.“Our first stage is actually in Taiwan, the show is all in Korean. We are very busy preparing for it but we are not sure how our Taiwanese fans will react as it’s gonna be just the 3 of us. We’re trying our best and practicing a lot. It’s also been a long time since we went to Taiwan, so we are looking forward to meeting our fans there as well.”
In the meanwhile, uBEAT have released their first mini-album – ‘Should Have Treated You Better‘. Judging from the overwhelming response and great anticipation from the fans… don’t worry too much Eli! Your fans have got your back!
Super Junior’s Eunhyuk and Siwon relax at the L.A. airport, while waiting for their flight to Brazil.
Super Junior fans… take a deep breath and prepare yourselves for a treat! Eunhyuk, Donghae and Siwon are getting into the summer spirit by relaxing poolside in Brazil and we have the shirtless pictures to prove it.
Eunhyuk tweeted two different photos of the trio. The first one shows the 3 gorgeous guys flashing peace signs at the camera while walking. The photo caption read, “walk walk walk….run run run!!!!!!!” Eunhyuk and Siwon are both smiling at the camera, while a shirtless Donghae peers around Siwon to get in the shot also.
The second picture Eunhyuk shared shows them by the pool, each one relaxing and without a shirt. The caption read, “swim swim swim.” Donghae is wearing a black cap and gazing up at the camera, Siwon is looking out across the water and Eunhyuk is smiling at the camera while making a v across his forehead.
Though Donghae and Siwon’s bodies are mostly hidden in the shot, Eunhyuk is posing playfully in his swim trunks and gives a fully exposed view of his amazing abs. It appears someone has been doing some extra exercise lately! Judging from all the comments and responses on twitter, the pictures have certainly met with the approval of Super Junior fans around the globe.
Super Junior is currently on their world tour “Super Show 5″. The tour kicked off with two performances in Seoul and was followed by a performance in Sao Paulo, Brazil on April 21st. The tour continues in South America, with the next show in Argentina on April 23rd. The tour marks the largest South American tour by a Korean artist.
While many of us won’t be able to attend the “Super Show 5″ in South America, I don’t think anyone will be complaining too much. Because if the warm, summer-like weather in South America is what will give us pictures like these, then I say bring it on!
Idol group Super Junior’s South America Tour has opened first in Brazil. According to an April 23 report from the group’s agency, SM Entertainment, on April 21 Super Junior held their Super Show5 concert at São Paulo Credit Card Hall. The concert lasted about three hours from 7:30 p.m. (local time). This concert is the first show that a Korean idol group has held in Brazil and is the start of Super Junior’s South American Tour.
Super Junior performed a total of 24 songs, including “Twins,” “Sorry, Sorry,” “Bonamana,” “Mr. Simple,” and “Sexy, Free and Single,” showing a variety of performing styles unique to the group. About 8,000 local fans attended.
After the concert, the group said: “South America seemed far away, but now that we have performed here, it feels closer. We did not expect that someday we’d hold our own concert in Brazil, but now we’ve done it, thanks to Brazilian fans.”
Super Junior will continue the South American Tour at luna Park Stadium in Buenos Aires, Argentina, on the 23th of April.
According to a report by his PR firm on April 23, Jang Keun Suk, who has been dubbed the Asian prince, held fan meetings for 1,500 fans from Japan at the High One Resort Convention Hotel, in Kangwon Province, for two days on April 21 and 22. It is unusual for such a star to hold such fan gatherings for two days. Only Jang Keun Suk seems to be able to carry it off, thanks to his custom of taking lots of time to interact closely with his fans.
The fan meetings Jang Keun Suk consisted of a variety of events, including dinner with Jang Keun Suk, a miniconcert, talking about life in recent times, and a “graph of my life” presented by Jang Keun Suk himself. During the dinner, Jang Keun Suk stopped by every fan’s seat to welcome them. Also, on the morning of the next day, he gave his fans individual farewells, ending the special two-day gathering.
Recently, together with the project group Team-H, which he formed with musical partner Big Brother, Jang Keun Suk held concerts in Japan, Thailand, and Taiwan. He is going to release his second Japanese studio album on May 29.
