Super Junior members held a special lecture at Oxford University.
Although not in Korea, Super Junior experienced their global popularity in another continent as they held a special lecture at England’s Oxford University. On November 10, through the invitation of Oxford’s Asian Pacific Association and the Korean Student Council, Super Junior members Eunhyuk, Siwon, Kyuhyun, and Kangin guest lectured to a crowd of 400 students.
Despite the cold winter weather, Oxford Union Debating Chamber was packed with students anticipating a lecture on the K-Pop group’s national and international success. The lecture consisted of such topics as highlight videos of Super Junior’s world tour, “Super Show,” explanations of album creations, and the members’ thoughts on K-Pop and Hallyu.
Moreover, the Super Junior members were able to answer questions during a Q & A session that invoked insightful thoughts and perspectives on the Korean Wave. The four members of Super Junior engaged the students in both questions and activities, as the singers also included a session of teaching and learning Super Junior’s “Sorry Sorry” dance, creating an energetic environment.
In regards to the opportunity of guest lecturing at Oxford University, the Super Junior members expressed, “We are so happy to have such an opportunity as it was unimaginable for us to lecture at the historical Oxford University. We are thankful towards the students who, throughout the lecture, responded with cheers and responses, and while we prepared for the lecture we were able to look back at our careers, making this event meaningful.”
Super Junior are currently active on their world tour, planning their next stop to be in Japan as the group prepares to open “Super Junior World Tour ‘Super Show 5’ in Osaka” on November 15 and 16.
