1. [+485, -56] I've never been to a concert in my life but Big Bang's considered top class in other countries and their tickets are priced at 127,000 won and compared to other ticket prices of top artists, I think it's in the normal range...
2. [+365, -48] At Big Bang's level, aren't these prices reasonable? They're not some indie band off the streets, they have enough public recognition for it
3. [+317, -23] When Ariana Grande performed in Japan, she sold tickets where you could eat a meal with her and then watch her concert and they sold for way more than a million won and no one raised fuss over it. Seems like people are just mad that Big Bang's making a lot of money in Japan as a Korean group...
4. [+27, -6] Don't buy it if you can't afford it, why complain
5. [+20, -2] Those ticket prices are the norm in Korea ㅋㅋㅋ and it's not even like they're as performance-filled as Big Bang's. Singers just sing on stage and charge over 100,000 won per ticket
6. [+20, -10] The Japanese shouldn't go if they think it's too expensive~ ticket scalping will be double that anyway
7. [+19, -2] Compared to the prices foreign artists charge in Korea, Big Bang's prices are actually cute...
8. [+18, -4] Those prices aren't even expensive in Korea... seems more like people just want a reason to bring Big Bang down
9. [+13, -0] Well us Koreans can't even go because there are no tickets left for us
10. [+11, -3] EXO lip syncs through their concert and charges 100,000 won, at least Big Bang sings live and puts on a decent performance for what they charge, it's not expensive at all
