BEIJING, Jan. 22 — South Korean teen idols Super Junior (SJ) will take to the stage at Wukesong Gymnasium Friday night, hoping to wow fans with their catchy brand of pop music.
The three-hour-long performance will feature 38 songs, including dance versions of their latest hits, seven costumes changes, vibrant hip-hop dancing and state-of-the-art lighting.
Debuting in November 2005, SJ was formed by SM Entertainment and with 13-members, is the largest boy band in the world.
Selected from a pool of singers, actors, composers and models, SJ features perform-ers Leeteuk, Heechul and Han Geng, a Chinese member who was chosen from 3,000 appli-cants through auditions held in China.
Mainstream-Korean-pop in style, the group has released three studio albums, two live albums and five CD singles. Their 2007 production Don’t Don ranked as the second best-selling album of the year in South Korea. SJ is the second group to win Korea’s Best Artist at the MTV Asia Awards in 2008.
Super Junior’s Beijing show is part of the group’s second Asian tour that will take them to Guangzhou and Shanghai as well as various stops in Asia.
