Ahead of his first independent fan meeting, Kim Hyun Joong is unsettled by the controversy surrounding the price of the fan meeting tickets.
On May 18th and 19th, Kim Hyun Joong will be holding his ‘2012 Kim Hyun Joong Asia Fan Meeting In Taiwan‘, and the tickets are currently being sold between 30,000 KRW (~$27) to 200,000 KRW (~$180). Some reports in the Taiwanese media state that the fans feel the prices for the tickets are too high, putting both Kim Hyun Joong and the organizing team in a sticky situation.
A representative from the organization team informed OSEN on April 20th, “We are aware that there is some controversy surrounding the price of the tickets. But this fan meeting is different from all the others. Though its called a ‘fan meeting’, it is on the same scale as a quality concert performance.”
“Kim Hyun Joong is actively participating in planning this fan meeting,” the rep continued. “He has prepared 14 song performances for the fan meeting, and has prepared a event where fans can win prizes full of cosmetics from the cosmetic brand he endorses. He is unsettled at the controversy in the local area, and he is planning an excellent event that will not disappoint the fans. Please look forward to it.”
The tickets for this event were priced similarly to tickets for other Hallyu star fan meetings in the local area. The price was also not an issue in Singapore or Hong Kong, where Kim Hyun Joong recently performed.
In related news, Kim Hyun Joong will soon be launching his Asia Tour, starting in Singapore and traveling to Hong Kong, Taiwan, Thailand, Indonesia, and more.
