SM Entertainment warned ticket scalpers to stop reselling seats for Taeyeon, Jonghyun and Kyuhyun’s upcoming concert or else the agency will not tolerate it and take legal actions. Read on!
It’s already less than a month before Taeyeon’s most anticipated solo concert occurs, but issues of ticket scalping are still a big issue even though SM Entertainment has promised to take legal actions.
According to Soompi, in response to the reports about overpriced resold tickets for Taeyeon of Girls Generation first solo concert, the singer’s agency released a statement last Sept. 25, stating that they would not tolerate it and took a step against these illegal sellers who’re targeting all the desperate fans who just want to see the concert.
“We have confirmed that tickets for Taeyeon’s concert are selling at elevated prices. We are taking steps to reduce the damages to consumers.”
Adding on, the company noted that any illegally resold tickets for any SM Entertainment concert that will be reported with enough evidence will be cancelled.
It was previously reported that “Taeyeon’s Very Special Day” concert tickets were sold out in a snapped last Sept. 23, and all 3,600 seats in the venue were completely reserved in ten minutes!
It’s not new for Kpop concerts to be like this as Taeyeon is one of the most popular member of Girls Generation, but some reports claimed many of the tickets were being resold at a very expensive price by some resale sites.
Based on Kpop Starz report, it turned out that the real price for the concert tickets was seen being resold for up to 700,000KRW, nearly $600-$700 USD.
On the other hand, SM Entertainment noted that they are now giving much attention on Taeyeon’s concert as well as for other SM artists upcoming solo performances like Jonghyun of Shinee and Kyuhyun of Super Junior.
The said concert series called “The Agit” will be held at SM Town Theater located in the COEX Atium.
In regards to the singer’s schedules; Jonghyun will be the first artist to perform. His concert titled “The Story By Jonghyun” is scheduled on Oct. 2-4 and Oct. 8-11.
“Taeyeon’s Very Special Day” will be on Oct. 23-25 and Oct. 31- Nov. 1.
And last but definitely not the least, Kyuhyun’s “Fall Agin” concert is set on Nov.6-8 and Nov. 13-15.
