Shinhwa proved its comeback is indeed going to be a big deal by selling out all 20,000 seats for its comeback concert.
The group will be holding its comeback concert The Return in Seoul from March 24-25, four years since its 10th anniversary concert held in 2008. March 24 will give the group all the more reason to celebrate, as the day also marks its 14th anniversary.
A source close to Shinhwa stated, “Although all of the servers on the ticket site were running, the site became inaccessible for a while because there were so many people trying to get tickets. 40 minutes after the tickets were opened, all seats sold out. Sales from ticket sales amount up to 2 billion won.”
Employees are even trying to curb illegal ticket sales online, which are popping up due to the difficulty in getting tickets for the concert.
Member Eric, head CEO of Shinhwa Company, stated, “We’re thankful to those fans who’re allowing Shinhwa to have a splendid comeback after four years. Just as long as the fans have waited, we′ll be presenting them with that great of a performance.”
Eric added, “I also thank Shinhwa Company, which is working hard behind the scenes for Shinhwa’s comeback, the staff from the members’ agencies Open World Entertainment, Top Class Entertainment, Liveworks Company and TOP Media, and the staff from the concert’s hosting company, CJ E&M.”
