Girl group Girl’s Day clarified rumors about their first solo concert.
Girl’s Day held their very first solo concert on July 13, bringing out 2000 fans. They announced that the profits from the tickets will all proceed to an international children’s charity organization, Plan Korea.
However, some accused the group of using the charity concert as just a publicity stunt. The tickets were only 10000 won (approximately 10 USD) and they questioned whether there would be any money left to donate after covering the concert production costs.
To this accusation, a representative from Girl’s Day’s agency announced, “the production costs will be covered by the company. The 14,000,000 won from the concert, 5,000,000 won from the merchandise sales, and money raised from other activities will total up to 30,000,000 won (approximately 30,000 USD), which will all be donated to Plan Korea.
Currently, Girl’s Day are the spokespeople for the international charity organization Plan Korea. They released their latest mini album on July 14, and are topping various charts with their single “Darling.”
