JYJ member Kim Jaejoong’s first solo album Asian tour was sold out in 15 minutes.
C-JeS Entertainment announced, “Kim Jaejoong’s first solo tour, called ‘2013 Kim Jaejoong 1st Album Asia Tour Concert,’ sold out all 14,000 tickets for the Seoul concert on October 8, in a mere 15 minutes.”
They continued, “As soon as tickets were available for the shows on November 2-3 at the Seoul Convention & Exhibition Center (COEX), the Interpark ticket website and mobile applications were immediately slowed to a lag, showing the sheer intensity of Kim Jaejoong’s popularity. With his flawless transformation into a rocker with his past mini album, fans are anxiously awaiting his new album and concert.”
This past January, with the ticketing for his mini album concert, “Your, My and Mine,” he set a new record for the number of website hits on Interpark, and sold out all 16,000 tickets then, as well. Moreover, for his Yokohama Grand Finale concert, the ticketing website was overwhelmed with visitors numbering four times that of available tickets, at 160,000, and the concert was sold out in a flash, resulting in countless requests for standing room tickets as well as those for seats with limited view.
Kim Jaejoong’s first official album will be released towards the end of this month, and he will also release one track beforehand, on October 15. He released the first “sexy rockstar” teaser image for his album on October 8, further increasing fans’ anticipation.
