1. [+429, -3] Well, the fan bought gold, which people use as investments so they won't lose any money if they decide to sell it later... This is much better than fans who bulk buy random fan merch that end up in the trash later.. ㅋ

2. [+109, -6] They are spending their own money, what else is there to say! Who cares if they're choosing to spend hundreds of thousands on something that's important to them! You gotta spend money to keep the economy going, after all!

3. [+64, -2] They bought gold for the tickets so it's fine. I don't think they would've gone as hard if you had to buy actual fan merch to get the tickets.

4. [+52, -3] They didn't spend all that much since gold can be resold. Also, that money spent isn't going to Kim Soo Hyun but the store that is selling the gold.

5. [+25, -1] Gold is much better than buying trash fan merch

6. [+4, -0] I was wondering what the fan could've dropped so much money on and it was gold... which is good, they can just sell it when the value goes up later, plus they get a picture with their favorite celebrity out of it. This is a much more realistic option than wasting money on fan merch or bulk buying albums.

7. [+3, -0] I think events like this is actually a negative mark on Hallyu~ way too much money getting involved. Albums have also become a thing that fans buy not to listen to but to bulk buy in hopes of getting into fan meetings. People need to draw the line... fans aren't just infinite cash cows.

8. [+2, -0] The fan can just sell the gold off later, it's a good investment

9. [+2, -0] What a rich fan... I wouldn't bother wasting my money on a celebrity like that, though..

10. [+2, -0] Gold is as good as cash so it's a good investment. Lucky fan who got the opportunity to invest and meet Kim Soo Hyun.
