JYJ Pusan Concert, War on Securing Tickets Forecasted. Prospects of Japanese Fans Entering Korea En Masse.
“Secure the tickets!”
As the words say, it is a war for tickets. Even before the ticket sales have begun for the Pusan Concert of the popular group JYJ, both domestic and abroad fans are fiercely eyeing the situation in order to secure the tickets.
JYJ, in the middle of a two-month world tour, is planning to have its splendid ending on the coming June 11 and 12 by holding a concert in the Pusan Sajik Indoors Gymnasium. JYJ is gathering attention because while most artists who hold a world tour choose to have their finale performances in Seoul, it has picked Pusan.
The analysis is that the reason that the war for tickets have been ignited is due to the Japanese fans. JYJ, which the TVXQ members Jaejoong, Yoochun, and Junsu formed, is famous for having secured a large number of fans in Japan. Because in this world tour a stop in Japan is excluded, it is forecasted that JYJ’s Japanese fans will gather in Pusan en masse.
As such, the JYJ side is worried that due to Japanese fans the domestic fans may miss out on the opportunity to watch their performance.
The director of C-JeS Entertainment, JYJ’s agency, revealed: “After the Pusan Concert dates were confirmed, the inquiring telephone calls about when the tickets will be available for purchase are unceasing. Soon there will be an official announcement on the ticket sales. Because it has become known that in Japan too there will be a bulk purchase of the tickets, we are thinking of many methods for helping the domestic fans.”
For that alternative, it was revealed that to hold the domestic performance once more is also being seriously contemplated.
Director Paek revealed: “Because the individual schedules of the members are very packed, it is not easy to secure additional dates for the concert. However, in thinking of fans, we are arranging the schedules so that it is possible to hold a concert once more in a place other than Pusan.”
On the other hand, JYJ who has finished their concerts successfully, beginning in Thailand in April and stopping in Taiwan and China, will continue their concerts in Vancouver, Canada, New Jersey on the 22nd, Los Angeles on the 27th, San Jose on the 2nd of June, and others.
