Veteran singer Na hoon-a has proved he is still a popular draw with an instant sellout of his concerts to be staged in May.
Some 45,000 tickets for his concerts from May 17 through 19 in Seoul were snapped up in just eight minutes after they went on sale on Wednesday, according to ticketing website Yes24.
Na's concert in Seoul two years ago sold out in seven minutes, and another one last year in three minutes, but the venues for those concerts were much smaller with a capacity of 9,000.
Yes24 said that over 80 percent of the people who bought the tickets this time are in their 20s or 30s. "These young people seemed to buy them for their parents, who must be big fans of the 69-year-old singer but are not familiar with online ticketing," a company staffer said.
