The agency added that Eunhyuk was unable to leave for the concert which was why the members decided to cancel their performances and instead were looking forward to meeting their fans. Super Junior debuted in 2005 under the label SM Entertainment and over the years, the bonds between band members have deepened and they are almost like a family. This was why when reports about Eunhyuk's father emerged, fans spotted the rest of the members at the airport in a state of shock and sadness as they were leaving for the concert.
