The writer should have written a 14 member group instead of 10 (I didn’t include Hangeng)

Super Junior

Super Junior, a 10-member K-pop group, will hold its first solo concert in Paris next month, according to reports on Wednesday.

The Paris show is part of Super Junior’s world tour titled “Super Show 4” and will take place on April 6 at Le Zenith de Paris where world-famous stars including Neyo, the Pussycat Dolls and the Jonas Brothers have performed.

The boy band performed for French fans at the same venue last year along with other K-pop artists under SM Entertainment.

In December, the group performed for a record 90,000 people in a two-day concert in Osaka and also held concerts in Singapore and Taipei. The schedule has yet to be confirmed, but they are to visit other cities in Europe and South America as well, according to reports. On March 9-10, the Korean boy band will hold its solo concert in Macao.

Sungmin’s little bro is extremely thankful for the support he has received

[Trans] 27Jan2012 Sungjin’s Cyworld entry

I am also 24 years old now… Even if I’ve grown older, I really want to always live in my parents’ arms like before.. The world is a night which shows cruelty. As I grow older, there seems to be changes .. Hyung, when we were young, we deceived our parents and did this and that and stayed united~ You don’t know how empty I felt when you started dorm life, moved out your luggage and is unable to come home. Seems like I am lucky~ Because of hyung, there are many people who gave me support when I was tired. My social circle is not wide and don’t have things to be congratulated for, but everyone took care of me~ What I can do is know that there will be people to cheer for me no matter what mistake I make and even if there are things I am unable to do~^0^ You’ve worked hard today. Also have an enjoyable day tomorrow!
