Tickets for figure skater Kim Yu-na's ice shows, which will be held in Seoul for three days in early May, sold out in 30 minutes, according to her management agency.

"Ticket sales started at 7 p.m. on Tuesday through online shopping website Interpark and were all gone within half an hour," said All That Sports.

The shows are scheduled to run from May 4 to 6 in honor of the star's retirement from competitive figure skating and to say thanks to her fans.

"Kim would like to express her gratitude to figure skating fans for their unwavering support," added the agency.

The cast includes Denis Ten of Kazakhstan, a bronze medalist in the men's singles at the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics, and gold-medalist pair Tatiana Volosozhar and Maxim Trankov of Russia.

Kim will skate to "Nessun Dorma" from Giacomo Puccini's opera "Turandot" as it has long been an ambition of hers, she said, adding that the new program will be operatic in nature.
