Yet another sign of Super Junior‘s international popularity has made itself onto the news in Taiwan: a restaurant recently got a complete makeover in celebration of the group’s upcoming visit to the island country!
With a boggling collection of merchandise from the group’s earlier promotion cycles to “Mr Simple” and even freshly released SS4 Taiwan posters, this restaurant is the ELF’s ultimate dream. The restaurant undertook the themed makeover in anticipation for Super Junior’s upcoming visit to Taiwan for the ‘Super Show 4‘ World Tour, where the boys will perform four shows from February 2nd to 5th at the Taipei Arena.
“Every day, there’s definitely been a fivefold increase of traffic here,” the store owner revealed. According to the report, the restaurant is always crowded and the staff is constantly phone calls to schedule reservations.
Furthermore, Kyuhyun‘s dad has drawn attention for opening a cram school in Taipei called U.P.i Academy, dedicated to teaching Korean to students in Taiwan. Admission is selective as it requires a basic knowledge of Korean with a minimum of 2,000 words. The language academy is scheduled to open on February 3rd, Kyuhyun’s birthday.
The clip has already drawn international attention and envy from international ELFs around the globe. One Taiwanese viewer commented, “It’s currently the Hallyu generation. Don’t be the frog at the bottom of a well [narrow-minded].”
If you’re in Taipei and are interested in visiting this restaurant, it’s located at No.2, Sec. 4, Nanjing E. Road in the Songshan District, Taipei 105.
