The showcase of ‘December: The Song that Hasn’t Ended’, the jukebox musical to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the late Kim Kwang Seok’s birth, was completely sold out in a mere three seconds.
According to Interpark, which was in charge of selling the tickets, revealed that all tickets for the showcase, which will be held at 2p.m. on the 31st at the Sejong Culture Centre, were sold out in only three seconds. The server crashed and the record was broken for the most people on the site at the same time. With ‘Interpark Ticket’ ranking high on various portal sites, the musical’s popularity could easily be felt.
The success of the showcase was a result of the public’s high anticipation for ‘December’, which is set to mark its mark amongst Korean original musicals. The success also reflects musical-lovers’ trust in Park Gun Hyun and Kim Junsu, who has the strongest ticket power in the musical industry. The day’s records will have a positive effect on the first round of ticket reservations for the musical, which will take place on the 1st of November.
A total of 1,000 seats on the second floor were opened up to the public for ‘December’, and each ticket was sold at only 1,000 Won to be donated to a worthy cause. Not only will this give people the opportunity to be the first to see ‘December’, it will also invites reporters and musical-lovers alike to the venue where the actual musical will be held.
Meanwhile, the musical’s production company NEW stated, “We could feel the love of musical-lovers from the new record. We plan to open 90,000 seats at once on the 1st of November. We will do our best to create the best musical possible to repay the audience for their support.”
The musical ‘December’ will commemorate the 50th anniversary of the late Kim Kwang Seok’s birth and is a jukebox musical that features unreleased music and compositions by the singer. ‘December’ will open its curtains on the 16th of December.
