12 million won for a ticket? BLACKPINK’s Hong Kong concert is facing serious black market prices

The ticket price for BLACKPINK’s Hong Kong concert, as part of their world tour, has skyrocketed, prompting complaints from local fans.

BLACKPINK will perform three nights at the Asia World Arena in Hong Kong from January 13th to 15th. Tickets for the concerts were put on for pre-purchase on Nov 22nd while the main sale was opened on Nov 23rd.

Tickets were immediately sold out after the website was opened. However, BLACKPINK fans were unable to buy tickets at regular prices as ticket scalpers have already got many tickets.

Taiwan’s ET Today reported on Nov 25th that BLACKPINK fans are complaining as ticket scalpers have taken a large number of tickets for all 3 concert nights in Hong Kong.

Tickets for BLACKPINK’s Hong Kong concert were priced from HK$799 to 2,999 yuan depending on the seat location. All tickets sold at regular prices were sold out, but many tickets soon appeared on different platforms at different prices. Tickets taken by ticket scalpers have begun to show up at high prices online. Specifically, tickets on the first floor of the concert hall are priced at up to HK$70,000 (about 12 million won).

In response, BLACKPINK fans are complaining to the performance organizers. On the organizer’s Facebook page, fans who couldn’t buy tickets for BLACKPINK’s concert flooded with comments such as, “I waited for nearly two hours, but it was already sold out,” and “It was a waste of time.”

In a related development, BLACKPINK’s Hong Kong concert organizer recommended purchasing tickets through its official channels on Nov 22nd, while warning that they will not be responsible if any problem arises by purchasing tickets through any unofficial route.

Meanwhile, in Taiwan, Super Junior’s concert tickets were recently canceled and officially resold after high-priced tickets were discovered in the black market.
