But surprisingly, they spoke Tagalog during the concert, not Korean nor English.

As they began the concert with Black Suit and Mamacita, they've started their talk at around 17 min by shouting "PHILIPPINES~". Leeteuk spoke in Korean "You have an immense scream. But we'll first start with the greetings. We are SUPER JUNIOR!" 
 
And until then, the interpreter translated their words to the fans.

Soon, Shindong grabbed the mic and spoke Tagalog. And the mic was passed onto the other members sequentially. Members started to read out the greetings they've prepared in Tagalog, while few of them memorized the content.
 
Eunhyuk after finishing up his Tagalog greeting spoke in Korean "Did you understand what I just said? I prepared Tagalog for the concert. Next time, I would try to talk to you without this cheat sheet. I've missed you so much."

About their Tagalog greetings, staffs confirmed VoomVoom that "Super Junior learned Tagalog from the interpreter ahead of the concert. They've prepared it in advance." They added, "Members always are learning a bit of the native languages to intimately communicate with the fans during their tour."
 
 
Concert staffs further hinted fans at the venue that "Members put more effort into this concert as it is their visit after such a long while." How sweet is Super Junior?
