Can you believe that popular boy group EXO had their concert tickets sell out in less than two seconds? According to news reports, the ticketing battle was much more competitive than expected!
On April 16, the tickets for EXO’s first Seoul concert titled “From, EXO #1: The Lost Planet in Seoul” was opened at 8PM (KST) through online market Gmarket. However, within 1.47 seconds, all seats were reserved and the concert was deemed sold out. As fans had prepared to purchase tickets by going to computer rooms with fast internet or asking the assistance of friends, many were unsuccessful to purchase a seat. Moreover, fans even played an online game known as the “Ticketing Practice Game” in which they practiced on their ability to click on the screen. Unfortunately, many fans were unable to even access the seat reservation chart as the excessive amount of fans on the site had caused the site to crash.
For fans who were unable to purchase a ticket the first time, cancelled seat reservations will be released on April 18.
EXO’s first Seoul concert, “From, EXO #1: The Lost Planet in Seoul” will be held on May 24 and May 25 at the Seoul Olympic Stadium.
