The 3rd live tour concert of Asia top group Dong Bang Shin Ki is expected to earn at least 4 billion won from foreign country fans.
It’s not talking about the money that will be earn by SMTOWN through the concert alone, but to the economy in general.
As already scheduled, TVXQ’s 3 days concert in South Korea at Seoul Olympic Park Gymnastics Stadium will kick off today on February 20th up until February 22nd before they’re heading to other Asian countries on the list: Beijing, Shanghai, Bangkok, Taipei, etc with total 12 performances all over Asia.
TVXQ’s Korea concert, which was already sold out only few minutes after the ticket selling opened, not only be attended by their Korean fans. It’s confirmed that their foreign Asian fans to attend coming from Japan, China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia, Vietnam, etc will be approximately about 2000 people.
Those number are dominated by Japanese fans, as explained by some hotel managers that they weren’t able to handle all room bookings by Japanese guests who were mostly coming to see TVXQ’s concert, made most hotels around concert area are already fully-booked at around the concert date.
The factors of this excitement are predicted, first, due to the concert’s date itself which are during weekends, when most people have their free time. And second, due to the popularity of TVXQ’s 4th album MIROTIC which had been at top popular charts of many asian countries such as Korea, Japan, Taiwan, and Thailand. Thus, it’s increasing the fans’ curiosity to see TVXQ’s starting point concert in the boys’ very own home country.
Economy experts said that the foreign country fans had to at least spend ₩ 2,000,000 per person which made it ₩ 4,000,000,000 in total for 3 days and 2 night hotel charges, concert tickets, plane tickets, other accomodation, transportation, phone charge, and not mention the official concert goodies that will be sold during the concert days such as t-shirt, cookie, stamp, etc.
