Korean boy band Super Junior attracted approximately 32,000 fans to their concert in Thailand over the weekend, according to their agency on Monday.
The concert, titled "Super Junior THE 2nd ASIA TOUR 'SUPER SHOW 2' in Bangkok" was held at the city's largest indoor stage the Impact Arena on November 28 and 29, SM explained.
"We had to sell the tickets off-line because we had technical difficulties with the website that sold tickets when they last performed here," associates of the concert's promoter True Music was quoted as saying. They also added, "There were more than 5,000 fans waiting in line to buy the tickets a day before the tickets went on sale."
Heechul, a member of Super Junior, gave a solo performance during the concert and the group sang their hit songs including "Sorry Sorry" and "U". Their subunits -- namely Junior-K.R.Y., Super Junior-M, and Super Junior-T -- also performed their songs for fans.
Super Junior's Asia tour will continue on into several cities in China including Nanjing on December 12, Beijing on January 23 of 2010 and Guangzhou on January 30. They will also perform in Taipei of Taiwan on February 20.
Super Junior is a thirteen-member idol group in Korea, and also one of the most popular K-pop acts in Asia since their debut in 2005. Their song "Sorry Sorry" stood atop Taiwan's online chart for 30 consecutive weeks and Super Junior-M's mini-album ranked No. 1 on many charts in Taiwan, China, the Philippines and Thailand.
