      AEG owns and operates about 160 arenas around the world including STAPLES Center in Los Angeles, which draws 22 million people annually, and the O2 Arena in London, which has attracted 50 million people since its opening in 2007.

      "We expect the arena will serve as an iconic venue to draw K-pop fans home and abroad," said a spokesman at CJ Group.
