On press conference of Super Junior’s highly-anticipated Super Show 5 that was held at the Olympic Park Gymnastics Stadium in Seoul on March 24, Kangin, who was discharged from the army last year, said on being able to participate in the show again, “I’m back since ‘Super Show 2.’ I was lacking in many ways because it has been a long time since I last joined, but it was possible because the members pulled me along.”
Kangin enlisted in the army following a drunk driving incident in which he took time off to reflect upon his actions. “The members enjoying themselves hasn’t changed, but I noticed that they had become more experienced and pro-like,” said Kangin. “The members have become more relaxed than before. While with them, I’m feeling the thought that I need to catch up in my bones.” He continued, “This time, we’ve put aside our individual interests and are thinking of ways to look and do our best as a team.” Kangin will put on a solo performance at this concert, performing the late Kim Gwang Suk’s Around Thirty. On why he chose that song, Kangin said, “My having turned 30 is one reason, but the fans are getting older too, and I chose the song because I wanted to share that with them.” Super Show 5 is set to be one of the largest scale world concert series for a Korean artist, and it will travel to China, Japan, Indonesia, South America and Europe after the Seoul concerts. Super Junior will take the show to San Paolo, Brazil, Buenos Aires, Argentina, Santiago, Chile and Lima, Peru from April 21 to 27.
