Super Juniors Sungmin Unable To Join SMTOWN Concert Due To Fan Boycott

Last month, one of Super Juniors most influential fan communities announced that they would be boycotting all of Sungmins activities as a celebrity.

On July 6, a representative from Super Juniors agency SJ Label stated, Sungmin, who recently had an issue with his fans, will not be joining the SMTOWN concerts held in Korea and Japan. Kangin, who is currently self-reflecting on his drunk driving case, will not be attending either. The rest of the members [who arent enlisted in the military] will be performing at the concert.

Super Junior's Sungmin and Kangin to be absent from upcoming 'SMTOWN' concerts

Super Junior's Sungmin will be absent from SM Entertainment's upcoming concerts for 'SMTOWN Live World Tour VI' due to fan objections.

It seems fans have really turned their backs on Sungmin as some of Super Junior's largest ELF communities have announced their boycott of the star. Netizens first expressed their opposition of Sungmin joining Super Junior's comeback later this year, a fan site demanded his leave from the group, and a social media like by his wife further fueled the fire.

Super Juniors SMTOWN LIVE performance on July 8 was an emotional moment for everyone as the members who attended the concert opened up about whats been going on with the group lately.

Only four members were present as Kangin has been inactive since his DUI case in 2016, and Sungmin had to pull out due to the recent fan boycotts. Donghae, Choi Siwon, Eunhyuk, Ryeowook, and Kyuhyun are currently fulfilling their military service duties, meaning that only Leeteuk, Yesung, Shindong, and Kim Heechul were able to attend this years event.
