The girls weren’t joking when they said they’ll make 2009 as theirs. As reported earlier, the tickets for SNSD upcoming solo concert were on sale earlier today. Apparently, 12000+ tickets (6000+ tickets for each day) sold out in three minutes! Congrats girls~
The fact that they’ll have first solo concert, Into the New World, alone is already a huge achievement as it’s very rare for girl groups to hold a solo concert to begin with. The break even point is about 5000 tickets to avoid financial loss, that’s why for this 2 days concert SM only set about 6000-7000 tickets for each day. SM I totally has underestimated the power of S♥NEs, because I honestly didn’t expect them to be sold out, at least not that fast. :X I thought G-Dragon’s recent 10-minutes sold out was pretty fast…
Why am I losing my hope for the Bangkok concert now ;____;
Most South-East Asian fans will be there, I wonder how is my chance to actually get a ticket for the concert…
[rant] Why is people all are talking about ahjussi-filled concert now? Ugh. I hate it when non-fans generalized all S♥NEs as perverted middle-aged men. i’magirlandnoteventwentyyetdammit! Wasn’t there was a survey about SNSD fancafes’ member? They have pretty balanced number between male fans and female fans — about 52% males and 48% females. Please, I bet that the 52% males are not all ahjussis. Even what they called as “samchon” (uncle) fans are those who are in their mid-20s to 30 years old (it’s not even that old!). I just hate that if I’m a SNSD fan, then I’ll be generalized as middle-aged men, or perverted middle-aged men to be exact. Ok, I’m not complaining about the perverse on my part :”D, but that’s another story. What’s wrong if they have a strong base of older male fans? It’s not like those boybands have no (perverted) older female fans and what not. Heck, even the girls said that the samchon and ahjussi fans are basically the calmest and most supportive group of fans. Sigh. I hope people would stop generalizing S♥NE like that, it’s starting to get very annoying. We love SNSD, but it’s NOT merely because of their looks — unlike what anti-fans always claimed us to be.[/end rant]
This is not that important, but previously there were some reports that the tickets sold out in five minutes, but that was pretty much an estimation as the official news report it was on three minutes. 😀

By the way, I’m not really sure about this but supposedly this is a new record for girl group’s concert. There were only three girl group who had their own solo concert: S.E.S, FinKL, and Wonder Girls. Let alone sold out, somebody said that none of them reach the 5000 break even point. Gosh, can you believe SNSD was the group that got silent treatment (a.k.a the Black Ocean) on Dream Concert last year??? The same group that got boo-ed when they performed on SMTown Concert in Shanghai??? I’m so proud of them to have come this far, seriously.
Any chance you can give us your sources? 😀
hahaha i just come from akp…i understand how annoying people generalise snsd fan all samchon ahjussi and perverted…im a fangirl 🙂 and i feel bad for ahjussi fans…people automatically call them perverts tsk..
and SM totally underestimate power of 9. i thought home country concert would fit more people, more seats but when SM said only 6000 a day i was surprised. do koreans not like concerts?? taiwanese idol the big ones hold at leats 15k seats -30k for homecountry…only when overseas reduced to 6-8k.
anyways i want to go TT_TT
Well done girls!
I’m going to the Bangkok concert.. Hope i got the chance to buy the ticket lol..
:O good luck! be prepareeeed!
and @crazy51: i hear you! maybe we should make a post about how our snsdkorean team is like mostly girls… and i’ve seen lots of fan girls of snsd!
lol, guilty, I’m male, only few months older than Taeyeon. So happy their tickets sold out so fast. Also, there’s a cute video of Yoona serving at a volleyball game on smoothyeco’s channel
I’m Korean but I don’t understand where the international fans get this idea of “perverted ahjussi fans” because there is no such thing in Korea. First of all there is no such term “ahjussi fans” used in Korea. ahjussi is more like middle aged, 40-ish person. Yeah there are few ahjussi fans out there but not enough to establish a term for it. Only the term samchon fans (20-30s) is used and us younger fans have great respect for samchon fans because they have proven themselves to be the most civil fans out there. I guess antis have theorized this “perverted ahjussis” out of thin air. Tell them to prove it by giving a link to a perverted post made by a Korean ahjussi fan. They can’t because no such thing exists on Korean sites. On the other hand there are crazy aunt fans of boybands making frank lewd comments about their boys haha…
no, we sone, refuse to ask them to link us proofs because that means we are actually entertaining them. srsly, the antis are idiots and very petty in our eyes. besides, we are not interested in feeding the trolls
woah! the girls are really impressive, well what can i say the girls rock! ^_^
They are getting big.
Well,SNSD will make a waves in Asia.
SNSD, wow that is very very impressive! 2009 is SNSD!!. So happy for them!!! I want to go to their concert too. I live in Australia, they should come here TOO. HAHA!! SNSD JJANG!!
i’m so proud of them!!! as aseans!!!
love 9 forever~
woots! im so happy for them! XD
wow! awesome job girls! hope the concerts are a success!
and good luck getting a ticket crazy51! hope u get good seats too! ^_^
Estoy tan orgullosa de ellas TT____TT
Sones and SNSD jjang!!!!
power of 9 ♥
This is one step to reaching a higher goal
I’m proud of them too.
How do I say this? They really dragged each other through the mud and climbed to the top. If anyone could do it, those dorks could! ^^
And SNSDs fans aren’t all middle-aged men. Seriously. They do have alot, but there’s alot of oppa and unnie fans too. And alot of younger fans who call them “noona”.
Not to mention that there’s probably more girls on SSF than guys.
But anyways, 3 minutes? Fwah. Our girls are amajjing. There’s the intensity of SONE and power of 9 for ya.
Good point, Crazy, comparing this to last year’s Dream Concert boycott. Nothing succeeds like success.
There, there. No need to get upset over the remarks about the ahjussi fan base. That’s probably anti talk and letting it get to you (or whoever wrote the rant) means the antis are controlling you.
The widening age-spread among the fans was bound to happen as they matured from girls to women — and as long as their music and performance continued to appeal.
Remember their Star Golden Bell performance of “Genie”? The men — not all of them young — enthusiastically cheering them on? Those types of fans are less fickle — and they have the money to pay for their music and are less inclined to sneakily download.
Besides, as we learned from INTIMATE NOTES, SooYoung draws the old men. She’s tough enuf to beat them off — if she’s so inclined.
I Love You All! God bless to You all! i still pray you think to go here in our country, Philippines. Love Korea! Love SNSD So Much.. Loving more!
Iamafangirltoo.damnit. Anyway, congratz to the girls. I’m really proud of them.. Watching them grow & become this big is soo awesome. When they overcome the hatred they faced even before their debut, that just proves that they are strong. when they’re strong, that’s when they can be successful & long last in the industry.. Good job girls~!!
im so happy for them. One day they will be the biggest of alll stars!!!!!!!!!!!
oh yeah~and thank u to the people who made thiss site too,or else i would never find out about snsd O.O!
Weww 3 minutes that’s spiggin awesome ❤ So happy for them I just wish I could see them for myself 😦 Hopefully they'll release a DVD of the concert so I'll definitely be pre-ordering that 😀
And I'm guilty too, I'm a huge fangirl who is the same age as Yoona & Sooyoung 😛
snsd jjang !!
sold-out in 3 minutes were just so awesome!
anyway thx for clearing me out that i was more of a samchon fans keke.. ^^
i think its because shinee was one of the guests that’s why it got sold out i mean its so obvious
really sold out?but lots of fancams that i’ve watched is clearly showing that there are lots vacant seats i know i saw a site that showed the seats that were not sold and there are lots of it no offence to snsd’s fans but im just telling what i saw.
