'SM Family' captures Taiwan.
Artists from SM Entertainment including Kangta, BoA, TVXQ, Super Junior, Girls' Generation, SHINee, f(x) and EXO arrived at Taoyuan, Taipei on June 8 for their ‘SMTOTWN Live World Tour 3 in Taiwan,’ which was held at Hsinchu County Stadium in Taipei, Taiwan. Around 1,000 fans flocked to the airport, and the local media such as CTV TVBS also came to get full coverage of the arrival of the SM artists.
The diverse repertoire of a total of 50 songs, which was held for four hours during the concert on June 9 at 5:30 PM, was enough to captivate the entire audience of 30,000 fans. Each team sang their hit songs and also performed other songs from their album which were not widely promoted. Also, the audiences were treated with unit group performances by Super Junior-M, Super Junior’s Donghae and Eunhyuk, and Girls’ Generation’s TaeTiSeo. In particular, a lot of attention was drawn towards the joint performances; Girls’ Generation’s TaeTiSeo and EXO's D.O Chanyeol, Lu Han and Sehun sang ‘DJ Got Us Fallin’ in Love’; Super Junior-M’s Zhou Mi and f(x)'s Victoria sang ‘Marry Me Today’; and Super Junior's Ryeowook, Eunhyuk and EXO's Chen sang ‘Love Doesn’t Travel Alone.’
Further, the fans waved the light sticks that symbolized each group and sang along to the songs. Also, the fans were able to reenact the ‘Korean’ way of cheering, and they continued to cheer on without leaving their seat even after the concert ended with the last performance of ‘Hope.’
‘SMTOWN Live World Tour 3’ will continue their next performance in Japan on August 4 and 5 at Tokyo Dome and in Seoul on August 18 at the Seoul Olympic Stadium.
