Label SJ, which houses Super Junior, says they will postpone Super Show 9: Road in Manila set later today.

“However, the members wanted to meet and greet the fans who came to Manila to attend the concert, so we’d like to ask everyone with tickets to enter the concert venue on time,” it added.

This was after the member Eunhyuk was unable to fly to Manila after his father passed away, while Siwon earlier tested positive for COVID-19.

A detailed explanation on ticket and schedule will be released soon, label SJ added. — Kristine Joy Patag
