Tickets for JYJ member Kim Junsu‘s solo concert sold out in just 5 short minutes.
JYJ’s agency CJeS remarked on April 19th, “Tickets for Kim Junsu’s solo concert began selling at 8PM tonight, and within 2 minutes, 17,000 seats were bought. Within 5 minutes, the concert was completely sold out.”
“But as soon as ticket sales began, our server had crashed due to the sudden influx of traffic so it’s more like the tickets sold out within 3 to 4 minutes,” they explained.
Kim Junsu’s very first solo concert will take place on May 19th and 20th at the Jamsil Indoor Stadium in Seoul. In the past, when Kim Junsu played a role in the musical ‘Mozart‘, he caused 45,000 seats to sell within 5 minutes. Seeing this, the fight to seize a ticket for his concert began as soon as news of his solo performance broke out.
A representative from CJeS remarked, “We realized just how explosive the public’s response was towards Kim Junsu’ album, seeing how the tickets sold out so quickly even though we have yet to even reveal the concept for the album. Depending on how many cancelled tickets we have on April 23rd, we will decide if we want to hold another ticket sale, but as of now, it looks like that’s going to be difficult.”
