SM Entertainment Considering Adding Another Round For SM Town Paris

3 May


SM Entertainment is reportedly considering adding one more round to the SM Town Live in Paris scheduled in June.
On May 1 (local time), about 300 K-pop fans gathered at the Le musee de l’ouvre and did a flashmob asking SM to add “One More Date” for the sold out SM Town concert in Paris.
SM said on May 2, “K-pop fans in other European countries as well as in France participated in the flashmob for “another round” of the concert. The local fans’ response to the first SM Town concert in Europe is so passionate we are now checking our artists’ schedules to add one more round.”
Tickets for the SM Town Live World Tour in Paris were sold out in 15 minutes after the ticket sale started.
The fans who failed to get a ticket gathered at the Le musee de l’ouvre with pickets for “One More Date” and danced to Super Junior’s Sorry Sorry, TVXQ’s Mirotic, SHINee’s Replay, and so on.
As illegal tickets are traded at an inflated price, members of Korean Connection, a French K-pop fanclub, has collected signatures for another round of the concert on the facebook.
People in the K-pop industry said, “With the development of digital media, a new paradigm has been made for distributing and consuming contents through Youtube, twitter, facebook, or I-tunes. This is a case to prove that K-pop is consumed and valued even without local promotion.”
