Netizens shocked at the increasing costs of K-pop concerts

If you’ve ever attended a K-Pop concert, you know exactly how it feels to spend hundreds of dollars – and potentially thousands if you including housing and flight – on a single event such as this.

In a topic posted on Instiz on August 30th titled “Surprised to See The Cost of an Idol Concert,” it reads:

“Cost of an idol concert exceeds a hundred thousand won in the spring time… ㄷㄷ “

Instiz: Cost of tickets going for 110,000 won (standing area and R seats) and 99,ooo won (S seats) for BEAST‘s Beautiful Show concert. Equals to $93 and $84 USD.
