The second round of tickets for BTS‘s Seoul performances of the 2018 Love Yourself World Tour went on sale July 2, 2018 and to no one’s surprise, the ticketing website Interpark miserably crashed, unable to withstand the thousands of fans trying to access.
The first round of tickets for these Seoul concerts were sold exclusively to official fan club members first.
Even before the tickets went on sale, ARMYs began checking out the website and causing server errors. While the connection remained unstable, ticketing time came. The website failed and kept showing the “Unable to Connect” page.
“We’re sorry! The connection to the website is unstable at the moment. This page is temporarily unavailable. Please refresh or try again later.”
Some ARMYs are fed up with Interpark, as this is not the first time fans had to battle the server error messages while trying to purchase concert tickets.
“Can we at least access the website that’s supposed to sell these tickets?”
“I heard some people were able to buy… This is harder than winning the lottery.
“I really wanted to get tickets for my daughter. What a shame.”
- “I’m so pissed I’m going to have to drink tonight.”
With the competition growing this fierce, ticket “resellers” are in good business — despite the agency’s efforts to stop these scalpers from making extra money with BTS’s concert tickets.
The cheapest ticket is listed at $300 USD and the highest at $3,000. Seats originally sold for $110 are now being resold at an average of $1,000.
BTS has sold out all of their 22 scheduled concerts in 11 cities. The lucky ARMYs who were able to grab tickets can’t wait until the Seoul concerts in August kick off this massive World Tour!
