Super Junior Considering Creating Japanese Subunit




Super Junior has been in Japan holding their "Super Show 4" concerts in Tokyo. During a press conference before the show, the group revealed they are thinking about forming a Japanese subunit.

"We never stayed in Japan to promote and it’s not like we had official promotions in Japan, either. But we think because of K-Pop’s overall popularity, we gained a lot of fan support. In order to return the love, we are also thinking about unit groups in Japan," the group stated.

In addition, the group also commented on comparisons to TVXQ's popularity in Japan.

"We think we benefited a lot from Hallyu’s recent popularity. Many people compare our popularity to TVXQ’s, but we really have a long way to go. TVXQ’s fandom is beyond imagination. TVXQ first started with small scale concerts with only 500 seats when they first came to Japan. They worked extremely hard to work their way up and achieved the results they did," the said.

Although remaining modest in front of the press, Super Junior's popularity in Japan has become undeniable as their latest Japanese single "Opera" climbed to the top of the Oricon Daily Singles chart. The single has sold over 150,000 copies in 6 days.
