The Seoul leg of JYJ‘s 10-city world tour was announced merely days ago, but that didn’t prevent fans from clawing their way to purchase tickets for the concert.
Tickets for both the 6PM and 9PM performances at Korea University’s Hwajeong Tiger Dome were sold out within 15 minutes after they were available for purchase. According to ticket vender employees, “Fans inquiries were overcrowded before the tickets were available, and as soon as tickets were available, there was an unprecedented struggle for tickets.”
Needless to say, I am now legitimately terrified to buy my tickets to the New York showcase.

Thank you for your patience and support for JYJ’s first World tour 2010.
According to fans, the concert will only be about an hour long, but hey. NYC gets little to no K-pop love as is; might as well take advantage of any opportunity that presents itself. Even if it means losing an arm or a leg in the ticket lines.
