Sad news for Filipino ELFs: Super Junior has postponed their Manila concert to a later date.
The K-pop group made the announcement on Twitter on Saturday, Aug. 6. “First of all, after many long discussions between the promoter and SUPER JUNIOR members, we both agreed that it will be difficult to properly hold [SUPER JUNIOR WORLD TOUR – SUPER SHOW 9: Road in Manila] as scheduled.”
SuJu earlier announced that Siwon tested positive for COVID-19, while Eunhyuk’s dad passed away and was unable to fly to the Philippines.
The members, however, requested their Filipino fans to go to the venue as they are still hoping to meet them. “We ask for your kind understanding, and detailed explanation on ticket and schedule will be announced soon.”
Happee Sy—the COO of Pulp Live World—wrote in a tweet: "It may not be what is expected, but this is me, ever since I started doing this. I have listened to my heart more than anything else. I’m sorry if I will disappoint some of you. See you all later at 5pm."
I will only do what I know and believe in my heart is the best. 🧎♀️ it may not be what is expected, but this is me, ever since I started doing this. I have listened to my heart more than anything else. I’m sorry if I will disappoint some of you. 🙏🏻 🧎♀️💙 see you all later at 5pm.— 👸 HAPPEE 🧝♀️ (@happeehour) August 6, 2022
At the concert venue, PULP told fans to "hold on" to their tickets as they will be honored on the new schedule that's yet to be finalized.
In a tweet, the local concert producer has also asked the PH ELFs for their "kind understanding" on the matter.
The members are composed of Leeteuk, Heechul, Yesung, Shindong, Sungmin, Eunhyuk, Siwon, Donghae, Ryeowook, and Kyuhyun. Sungmin is currently on hiatus, as of this writing.
