Over 1 Million People Tried To Buy Tickets To EXO’s Concert

The power and the influence this boy group holds is purely amazing.

EXO is, without a doubt, one of the most popular boy groups. So when this globally-beloved K-Pop idol holds concerts, the internet becomes a battle ground for the fans trying to score tickets.


Recently, for the Seoul “ElyXiOn [dot]” concert dates, which is an encore concert for the group’s 4th World Tour, there were 1.15 million people trying to connect to the ticketing website at once.

Fans were simply awed by the results, while realizing that with numbers like that, EXO is truly a powerful and influential group in and outside of Korea.


Of course, as for most K-Pop concerts, EXO concerts also attract “resellers” who use computer programs designated to snatch these tickets faster than actual fans.

Such “scalpers” and “macro programs” are unresolved problems that continue to plague the K-Pop concert ticketing culture.


Regardless, the lucky EXO-Ls who successfully secured tickets to go see EXO in Seoul look forward to the concert!
