“There were many memories in ‘Super Show 5’ concerts for me, but the most memorable one was the Avengers concept meeting and video filming while preparing for the concert. We had a lot of fun while filming it. Hahaha. The funniest thing was Wong Fei-hung and when Dragon Ball absurdly appeared, it was really fun. I think it was the performance that couldn’t be taken out of ‘Super Show 5’" - Shindong
