Recently, Super Junior’s agency SJ Label announced that they will be holding a conference with representatives from Super Junior’s fan pages to gather opinions and discuss what direction the group should be heading in with their new album.
The agency said, “Super Junior is making a long awaited comeback during the second half of 2017. We appreciate how long the fans have patiently waited for this moment, and hope to include their ideas and opinions as we plan for future activities.”
On June 6, Super Junior announced their comeback, and many fans have asked for members Kangin and Sungmin to be excluded from promotions. This is because Kangin has been in trouble with the law for drunk driving, and Sungmin has allegedly failed to communicate with fans after his marriage and discharge from the army. However, it was revealed that this conference was not being held for discussions on the two members, but rather to talk about the general direction of Super Junior’s upcoming promotions.
However, despite the effort to create a meeting space, fans have not been too happy. Only “fan representatives” will be able to attend the conference, and how this person will be picked and whether they will express the opinions of the majority is another problem to be solved. Following the negative response, the meeting announcement has been deleted and SJ Label has yet to comment on whether or not the conference will actually commence. If it happens, it will most likely be sometime around the middle or end of this month.
