Siwon, Kyuhyun, Kangin and Eunhyuk will be the speakers at the event that will be held at the Oxford Union Debating Chamber on Nov. 10 and organized by the Oxford University Korea Society, Oxford University Asia-Pacific Society and the Oxford Union.
“Please note that this is a speaker event, not a fan meeting or concert,” according to the organizers.
According to SM Entertainment, Super Junior will be the first Korean group to hold a special lecture at Oxford University.
Tickets for non-Oxford members have already sold out.
Super Junior’s speaking engagement will be held a day after the boy band’s London concert on Nov. 9 at Wembley Arena.
Last Oct. 24, Super Junior held their “Super Show 5″ world tour in the Philippines. The members are now in Mexico for the tour.
After their London concert, Super Junior will be holding the world tour in Japan, Malaysia and Macau this month.
Super Junior celebrated their eight anniversary by donning costumes from popular cartoon, movie and TV characters.
The group showed up in costumes at the Incheon International Airport before they departed for Mexico.
Super Junior debuted in the music scene on Nov. 6, 2005 with the single “Twins (Knock Out).” Their first album, “Super Junior 05 (Twins),” was released a month later.
