SJ-M lands in Taiwan, Donghae keeps sweet-talking and unleashing his charm — New members Eunhyuk, Sungmin steals the attention by dancing rabbit dance and learning Chinese

South Korean idol group Super Junior-M made a whirlwind stopover at Taiwan yesterday in order to promote their new album “Perfection”, but because Chinese member Zhou Mi faced problems with his visa, SJ-M lands in Taiwan with one member less. During the press conference, Siwon, who was born in the Year of the Rabbit, unexpectedly lost to Donghae in terms of popularity, and wasn’t favoured by the LOVE rabbit. Donghae, on the other hand, kept on unleashing his charms by sweet-talking the female reporters below the stage, using Chinese to say “Ladies, your figures are really nice!”

Donghae favoured by the LOVE rabbit

SJ-M reached the Taoyuan Airport yesterday afternoon, and close to 300 fans braved the rain to chase after the stars. During the press conference in the afternoon, the recording company gave them a couplet which read “Prosper”, wishing that the album that would be released today would be a huge sellout. As this year is the Year of the Rabbit, the recording company invited the LOVE rabbit from Japan to take the stage, causing Siwon who was born in the Year of the Rabbit to laugh heartily. However, this rabbit fan only had a soft spot for Donghae, and Donghae replied in a cheesy manner in Chinese, saying: “My beloved darling, do you love me? Do you want to get married with me?” Beside him, Siwon blurted out that “I want to go home.” in dismay. Eunhyuk also started dancing the rabbit dance, catching the attention.

Eunhyuk dances (and said) hilarious tongue-twister

SJ-M released a new album after more than a year’s absence following the departure of ex-Chinese member Han Geng from the group, and added two new members Eunhyuk and Sungmin. When asked whether there’s a huge pressure to sing in Chinese, Sungmin truthfully said that: “When I just started learning I think that Chinese was very difficult, but during the recording, the other members would help me from the side, (so) I hope that I’m able to use Chinese to communicate with the fans.” Eunhyuk, whose Chinese language skills needs to be further improve, tried to save his face by jokingly claiming that “I can understand by listening, (but) I don’t like speaking (in Chinese)“, and even showed off a unique but hilarious pronunciation tongue-twister.

New album’s name claims to love Taiwan

Towards the end of the press conference, Siwon expressed that during this period of time there are certain things that had happened, thanking the fans for their continuous support, and mentioned that they would work harder to bring better performances, and would not disappoint everyone. Also, after the title song of SJ-M’s new album “Perfection” was announced, there were netizens who pointed out that the “Tai Wan Mei” in the lyrics has similar pronunciation with the words “Taiwanese girls” and “Beautiful Taiwan”*, to put it bluntly, SJ-M really loves Taiwan. They would be leaving Taiwan today morning at 9.30am by taking the flight BR217, ending their visit to Taiwan which lasted less than 24 hours.

On the other hand, through their exclusive brokerage firm in Taiwan, Fu Long, SM Entertainment has reiterated that the concerts on the 11th, 12th and 13th next month at the Taipei Arena will go on as scheduled, reassuring the fans.

* 太完美 (Perfection), 台灣妹 (Taiwanese girls), and 台灣美 (Beautiful Taiwan) all have the same pronunciation.
