Actor Lee Jun-ki has seen the first portion of tickets for his fan meeting–scheduled to be held at the Olympic Park in Seoul on April 18–sold out in only two minutes after sales opened, according to his agency Mentor Entertainment on Friday.
“We first put some 4,000 of a total of 8,000 tickets up for sale on his fan cafes and official foreign-language site exclusively for members of his fan clubs and overseas fans, and they were sold out in just two minutes,” the agency said. “The foreign language site even went down at one point due to heavy traffic, with fans from all over Asia accessing it.”
Mentor Entertainment said that it decided to sell the tickets in two rounds to give both local and overseas fans of the actor equal opportunities to buy a ticket and facilitate sales. The second round opened on the online ticket site Interpark on Friday.
The agency added, “We have had lots of calls asking about the fan meeting even from Thailand and Arab nations, as well as China and Japan. So, we are planning to hire some translators for each language for the event.”
