Sales figures for IU’s “Real Fantasy” concert coming up in June have surprised ticket sellers as the audience is comprised mostly of males.
When the tickets went on sale on April 17, all 6,500 seats were sold out within half an hour.

Sources from the music industry say that the concert itself will be a spectacle as “uncle fans,” males in their 30s and 40s, are set to flock to the event.
According to the star’s agency, 71 percent of ticket purchasers were male, which is quite rare for a K-pop concert.

Furthermore only 12.4 percent of tickets were sold to teens while those in their 20s, 30s and 40s made up 43.8, 24.2 and 19.6 percentage of ticket sales, respectively. The tour will be the singer’s first solo concert since she made her debut back in 2008.

Ahead of her national tour, the 18-year-old singer is set to release a new single on May 11 entitled “Spring at the Age of Twenty.”
