Earlier, Super Junior participated in a live chat with fans at the YouTube APOP “STAR WEEK” Google+ Super Hangout Event held on March 10. In the video footage, the group personally confirmed their tour dates in Brazil, Argentina, Peru and Chile.

“Super Show 5” will kick off in Seoul on March 24 at the Olympic Fencing Gymnasium. The group will then go to China, South America and Europe to continue the tour.

The group has been holding the concert annually since 2008. The first three shows toured Asian countries and last year the group held their first world tour. Last year’s world tour attracted more than 900,000 fans.
