Tickets for JYJ‘s documentary film, ‘The Day‘, have sold out within just one hour of going on sale.
According to Lotte Cinemas, servers went down around 1:00 p.m. after 110,000 people rushed to purchase tickets for JYJ’s documentary when sales windows opened. However, tickets for ‘The Day’ didn’t go on sale until 4:00 p.m.
Regardless, all 19 different screenings for the film were sold out within the first hour. In Busan, tickets were sold out within the first five minutes, setting a new record.
A Lotte Cinema representative stated, “There were lines of Japanese fans waiting for tickets to go on sale since the early morning. Most films with singers sell around 30% of the tickets within the first few hours, but this film sold out completely, surprising all the employees. JYJ are definitely Hallyu stars.”
A representative from JYJ’s side stated, “We set short dates for the screening of this film because it was set out just as a special service for fans. However, because of the high demand for tickets, we may extend the dates after further discussions with Lotte Cinema.”Star News Credits: Allkpop Shared by: iLoveTVXQ5
