KUALA LUMPUR: One of K-Pop’s most successful agencies, Big Hit Entertainment, has announced that it will utilise a lottery system for the ticketing of its artiste’s events around the world in the near future.
According to Soompi, the company that manages the biggest K-Pop band in the world, BTS, had revealed the plan yesterday during a corporate briefing in Seoul, South Korea with its co-CEO’s Bang Shi Hyuk and Yoon Seok Jun, as well as beNX’s CEO Seo Wook Seok.
Speaking on the plan Yoon said that should everything go on well, the lottery system would first be implemented for the upcoming BTS fan-meet session next month and for the group’s concert in the South Korean capital in October.
He added that: “The ticketing lottery system will gradually be used for overseas tours as well to improve fans’ experiences.”
This new system for ticketing will be carried out with the aim of eliminating unfair ticketing practices.
The new development is in line with Big Hit Entertainment’s ongoing goal to improve the concert experiences of their legions of fans worldwide.
Some of the other things that were introduced included the various differing methods of selling concert merchandise and having a play zone made for fans waiting outside a venue.
There will also be live viewing services for group-viewing in a location close to the venue, live streaming services for fans to enjoy the concerts from the comfort of home and pop-up stores on the day of the concert.
