    I’m sorry but super junior does not have adverse fanbase. The overwhelming majority of their fans are very young

       I came to the comments to say exactly this. Their fanbase is overwhelmingly made up of teenagers and it shows.

    I’d love it if DBSK ever holds a 19+ show. That’d be 3 glorious hours of nothing but performances like “Before U Go” and Yunho’s infamously famous “Honey Funny Bunny.” 

    Besides, the fanbases of most of the sunbae groups (like DBSK) are mostly adults anyway. Most of the fandoms have grown with their idols, so they won’t lose that much of a chunk of an audience should they ever think of holding their own 19+ concerts.

    Xiah Junsu!! Lol He said he might do one in a few years when fans asked about it.. He also said he has the confidence to pull it off haha I pay to watch it!

      At this point in his career, I don’t believe that Junsu cares about pleasing a younger crowd. He just does whatever he’s comfortable with, which is a great thing for any artist, as it doesn’t make sense that you promote music or a concept that you yourself are not satisfied with. A 19+ concert would be a walk in the park for him, I think.

    It’s a strategy that has already worked in the favor of Taeyang who during his solo concerts back in 2008 & 2010 (HOT & SOLAR) put on two shows, one general and the other 19+. Since his music appeals to such a wide variety of people it makes sense that he would use this technique to attract as many fans as possible, not to mention his image on stage as well as his choreography is always very sexy.

    I guess I’m confused over the hype about 19+ concerts. In the US, 18+ concerts are held all  the time, especially when they’re at clubs. Just because they’re 18+, though, doesn’t mean there’s going to be overt sexuality, nudity, violence, etc. So does 19+ in Korea mean that there probably will be those things?

    Does anybody know if 19+ concerts are rare – not just for K-pop idols but for all musicians in general? For example, if an older indie band played at club and its fans were mostly adults, would it get a 19+ rating?

      Here in Spain, I’d say it’s rare. I mean, they do get +18 in clubs but that’s because minors CAN’T get into clubs, not because they can’t get into the concert, so it has a lot more to do with the venue than the artist. Most concerts held in bigger venues don’t have rating at all, or it’s a +14 or +16 and once again it tends to have more with it may not being a safe place for kids, even with their parents (or they usually are allowed only the seats, not the standing tickets). So yeah, I’ve never had problems as a minor to attend concerts, unless they were in clubs. It’s rare here.

    first of all, since I appear to live in a place that agencies do not consider part of the world and never get included in World Tours id be glad bouncing up and down attending ANY kpop concert, 19+ rated, 10+ rated,anyone..! but umm… I really dont really think that because something is 19+ rated its immediately porn… it could deal with sensual material yes but it doesnt only have to do with it… songs, mvs and such have been banned for dumb stuff like using slang or for talking about things that according to the ones rating could “corrupt”  minors -like songs who talk about thinking outside of the box or complaining about the school systems-. Idols like say, big bang, dbsk, jyj, super junior even tho they have young fans, theyre all 20+ and almost in their thirties so a great part of their fans are far from been teens too so a 19+ concert wont be that shocking, imo… but I dont think some agencies would even consider doing those concerts because it would mean that agencies would need to spend more $$$ in doing a teen-friendly concert and a 19+ concert.
