So many stars...so little time.

From the looks of it, the security at Changi Airport and the various security firms will be pretty busy in the next few months. I was curious...how do ticket prices compare and what does one get in return?

Just a sidenote- I was having a brief chat with L earlier. Many years ago, Joon's Family organised Bae Yong Joon's fan meet in his first overseas tour. He was the first big K star to step on our little red dot and he was really, really popular back then because of 'Winter Sonata'. Maybe some of the younger fans of the Shinee, Lee Min Ho etc may not remember, but I believe there was about 1,000+ fans at the airport. The fan meeting for about 1,200 fans was at The Rock auditorium and the tix cost between $30 to $50 (I think). It was certainly below $100. For that, you could watch his movie, 'Untold Scandal', where he personally made a stage appearance and the fan meeting was about 45 minutes- up close and personal. But some people still complained it was expensive then.

How much has changed since then. If he does come again...how much would it cost to see him I wonder? Hmm...

Last note- the clips for the Esplanade press conference have all been updated. You can refer to my twitter for the links. Hope to finish writing about it these 2 days as Brown Eyed Girls will be here end of this week. ^^

thanks for the long update ^^
i always enjoyed reading your post..
& i do agree that nowadays kpop events are getting more and more expensive ? >.<
everyone comes to singapore & held events like fanmeet/fansign all needed to pay .. except for the B.E.G fansigning at Lacoco last 2 months ago .. which i think its really nice of them to do free signing ...hmm..
it seems like kpop market is getting more popular down here ..=x

by the way, im curious what award SHINee will be receiving ..will you be able to give some hint? xD
it would be great if they had won some good award (:

Yes, it is expensive isn't it? For a start, the fees for K artistes is much higher than Taiwan or HK artistes. Many times, the organiser of such fan meet are doing it solely to make money. That is to say, they are not record or movie company whereby they want to promote an album or movie via the artistes' appearances.

Err...it's not that BEG didn't charge...it's just the organiser, LaCoco didn't charge. Like I said in my post earlier, it was nice of LaCoco not to profit from it financially directly. They could have said...get a haircut and then you can get BEG's signature. But they didn't. ^^

As for Shinee, I was just told they are accepting award and performing. But I don't know what award and not even sure if the information is right. But will definitely update if I have any news.

Thanks for dropping by. ^^

Thanks for all the updates, I really appreciate them :)

Junho's showcase tickets...are really expensive to me, sadly D: Don't think I'll be able to go, but perhaps I'll aim to go to the airport for the twin brothers' arrival instead :D

It's great that so many Kpop artistes are coming to our little red dot (: The only issue is $, of course, but other than that I'm loving it <3

Joyce said...

P.S Junho's message is heartwarming and sincere :) But 'don't miss out school?' Haha >.<
