Super Junior adds another performance in Taipei, Ticket sales start on the 27th

News just broke out about Super Junior's Hangeng contract termination lawsuit making fans extremely worried. Fortunately, some exciting news came yesterday* as Super Dome announced that Super Show II in Taipei has fixed 3PM Feb. 21st, 2010 for an additional performance. The tickets will start selling on Dec. 27th.

Moved by more than 3000 messages left by fans hoping for another performance, the organizers and those on the Korean side reached an agreement to add another performance. Rock Area tickets will start selling at 10AM on Dec. 27th on Super Dome's website. They will only be available for advance purchase by Dome members. Seating Area tickets will not be limited to members. Similarly, starting at 1PM on the 27th, on the eraTicket system, DuanDian (端點) and Fami Port will simultaneously start selling tickets.

As for whether Hangeng will come to next year's Taipei performance in February, Super Dome said, "Besides participating in this performance, we have already expressed to the Korean side that we hope the remaining 12 Super Junior members** can all come. We will continue to monitor the situation."

On the 21st, Hangeng requested for a contract termination through the Korean court causing Korea's idol factory, SM, to receive another blow following the TVXQ lawsuit. This has caused much heated discussion amongst media and netizens. Some felt it the managing company was wronged since, in order to train such a popular idol group, they had to enormous amount of funds in advance -- that many company investments are not seen by outsiders; Others advise that it is time for SM to face the discontent of those under the company.

** This is a direct translation. I believe they mean 12 excluding Kibum, not Hangeng.
