Currently garnering national popularity since the ending of the drama “Descendants of the Sun,” actor Song Joong Ki will be kicking off his Asia fan meeting tour, starting with the event in Seoul on April 17 KST at Kyunghee University.
While all 4000 available tickets were sold out through advance reservation, it seems that there are some illegal ticket brokers selling them for about one million won (approximately $900) after the fact.
The tickets are being sold for dozens of times more than the original price of 22,000 won (approximately $20), an indication of Song Joong Ki’s sky-high popularity.
Posts on auction and used good sites for tickets to the actor’s fan meeting event are more than a few. While some are hoping for tickets at the original price, many seem to be sold with an added premium of about 40,000-50,000 won (approximately $35-$44), or even 100,000-200,000 won (approximately $90-$170).
An event representative commented, “Tickets with added prices in the tens range is actually not that bad, there are some that are being sold for one million won (approximately $900) with some Chinese fans joining in on the sale of tickets. Since there are many who want them even after they were sold out, really the price is up to the seller.”
