K-pop group Super Junior members are becoming tour guides with their new travel book, “Super Junior’s Experience Korea NEWS+Seoul.”

The two-volume guide, which will include four separate sections titled “Tasting,” “Feeling,” “Making” and “Enjoying,” is set to hit the shelves Aug. 16.

For the making of the book, 10 of the group’s members traveled in pairs around Korea during different seasons. Siwon and Donghae traveled to the northern part of the country, Kyuhyun and Yesung to the east, Shindong and Eunhyuk to the west, Lee Teuk and Ryeowook to the south, while Kangin and Sungmin traveled around Seoul.

The book will provide the usual travel tips, such as where to eat and where to stay, but in a more personal way than other books, with the members adding funny episodes that occurred while traveling into the mix.

The boy band is also trying something special by providing Augmented Reality phone applications along with the book. Readers will be able to watch related video clips and images on their phone to make it seem as if they are actually traveling with the members.

Meanwhile, the hallyu stars are to perform in Taiwan’s Taipei Arena on Aug. 10 as part of their ongoing world tour “Super Show 5.”
