Eunhyuk to miss Manila concert after father passes away

By: Ruth L. Navarra

The father of South Korean artist Lee Hyuk-jae, more popularly known as Eunhyuk, died before the idol’s flight to Manila.

He was supposed to fly to the country for Super Show 9: Road in Manilawith the rest of the members of Super Junior. But videos and photos of the group show that Eunhyuk did not even get off at Incheon Airport.   One video shows group leader Leeteuk rushing from one member’s car to another in panic, presumably in search of Eunhyuk.

Fans were bewildered as to where he was after their flight landed in Manila.  Super Junior’s Twitter account (@SJOfficial)  posted the official statement of Label SJ about Eunhyuk’s father passing away at around 2 a.m.

The statement reads:

Dear All, this is  Label SJ.
It is with great sadness that we inform you of the passing of Eunhyuk’s father.
As decided upon by the family, the funeral will be held privately with relatives and close acquaintances only. 

The statement also confirms that the idol will not be able to join the Manila stop of their World Tour. 

Due to the sudden news, Eunhyuk was unable to depart for the (Super Junior World Tour – Super Show 9: Road in Manila) concert scheduled for today. We are internally discussing matters on the concert and will provide additional guidance as soon as possible. We apologize for the sudden notice, and appreciate your understanding during this time.
For the safety of all, we politely decline any visits and flowers, and ask for your consideration to allow Eunhyuk plenty of privacy and time to mourn. 
May he rest in peace. 

Concert organizer Pulp is yet to announce if there will be any changes to the schedule of the concert.

UPDATE: Pulp’s chief operating officer Happee Sy announced that the concert is pushing through.


Label SJ announced that they are postponing the concert tonight. But they will still meet the fans.
