The power of Se7en is overwhelming.
Advance ticket sale for Se7en's April 7 concert at the Seoul Olympic Gymnasium was a hit. Last February 26, when the advance ticket sale was opened, a little more than 12,000 seats were sold out in just 5 minutes. In just 5 minutes, the ticket sales totaled to 700,000,000 won.
This concert will be his last stage in Korea for this year.
In order to prevent a server crash, which happened during BIG BANG's concert advance ticket sale last year, 4 sites were opened to accommodate transactions. Initially, the server was a little unstable but the ticket sale ended in 5 minutes without problems.
To be able to sell a little more than 12,000 tickets in just 5 minutes is really an exceptional case since the Korean music market is in a depression right now.
Se7en, who is currently starring in "Palace S", also enjoyed a lot of popularity abroad. Last year, his Osaka and Tokyo concerts earned 3,000,000,000 won and goodies sales recorded a profit of close to 2,000,000,000 won. If tickets bought by Se7en fans from the two YG Family concerts will be combined with the aforementioned figures, the total would amount to 6,000,000,000 won.
Between June to July, a new single will be released and a nationwide tour in Japan is planned. It is forecasted that Se7en will be earning even more this year, therefore, confirming his popularity in Japan.
"After his Japanese activities, Se7en will be going to America to release his 1st single album", said a YG Entertainment personnel.
