K-Pop has a surprisingly huge fan base in Saudi. K-Pop boy band Super Junior is scheduled to perform in Jeddah on the 12th of July. The demand for their concert in Jeddah was so huge that the website hosting the tickets crashed.

And, tickets sold out immediately after it was back on.
So yes they are a pretty big deal here.
And, now to welcome them Super Junior fans have booked the Venus Screen. That’s the biggest curved screen in the entire world, btw.
The video welcoming them will be played on the screen starting this Thursday.
For welcoming @SJofficial in KSA and in cooperation with @DonghaeArab and other arab teams✨?

This isn’t the first time that the world’s largest curved screen was booked for a K-Pop boy band.
Earlier fans of EXO booked it.
