Reason why SHINee Taemin's Korean fans are mad at SM Entertainment
On July 6, SM Entertainment, home to SHINee's Taemin officially announced that the idol star will hold his first ever solo concert in Korea. The concert will be held at the Olympic Hall at Olympic Park in Seoul from August 26-27.
By the way, it seems like many Korean fans are mad at SM now. Do you know why?
One reason why they are mad at SM is because SM made an announcement about the concert in Japan earlier than the agency did in Korea. But that's not all. A bigger problem is that Taemin's first ever solo concert in Korea will be held at a small concert hall. The Olympic Hall can accommodate only about 3,000 audiences, while top class k-pop stars such as Taemin usually hold their concerts at the Gymnastics Stadium in Olympic Park, which can accommodate more than 10,000 audiences. And actually, Taemin has successfully finished his solo concert held at the Budokan in Tokyo, Japan, drawing a total of 28,000 audiences.
So, it will be really hard to get a ticket for Taemin's solo concert because, you know, the very popular idol star's concert will be held at such a small concert hall.
