Super Junior

SM Entertainment recently came under fire after announcing the venue for Super Junior’s upcoming fan meeting. Fans were furious because the venue could only accommodate 4,500 people, because it was a university auditorium.

This will be the first Korean offline fan meeting for the group with all members present. The event is planned to celebrate the 18th anniversary of Super Junior’s debut to be held on November 4 2023 at the Grand Peace Palace of Kyunghee University.

Although such halls often host celebrity fan meetings and concerts, at Super Junior’s level, such halls would not be able to accommodate all their fans. The stage was also considered too small, which gave rise to dissatisfaction.

Since this is Super Junior’s first offline fan meeting in South Korea in 8 years, fans hope that international fans will also come there. Coupled with local fans, the demand will be far greater than the available seats.

By choosing a small venue for such an important event, fans feel that SM Entertainment has long underestimated Super Junior. They sent a protest truck to the agency on October 4, 2023 to voice their complaints.

The following message carried by the truck read, “Late venue booking, negligent in work. Covering their ears and eyes for 18 years now. SM who do bad work but get paid must wake up now. Change venue for Super Junior’s 18th anniversary fanmeeting ” and “SM’s negligence is endless. They repeat the same mistakes in renting the venue. Replace Super Junior’s 18th anniversary fanmeeting venue.”

This is not the first time fans have taken issue with SM Entertainment’s venue. Previously, SHINee fans also protested the choice of venue which was considered too small, which was then replaced by SM.
