How to buy concert tickets in Korea with Wonderful
Updated: Dec 27, 2019
Buying concert tickets in Korea for both local and international concerts/musicals is no easy task. While some popular ticketing websites such as Interpark, Yes24 and Melon have Global (English) versions of their websites, some concerts are available only to holders of Korean website accounts. If you are lucky enough, you may be able to create an account on the global page, or if you're living in Korea you might be able to make a Korean account. Even then, the biggest challenge remains, concert sales are practically war zones and you will be competing with seasoned Korean fans who already know how the system works and don't have to deal with a language barrier. Concerts in Korea are notorious for selling out within minutes.
We have purchased hundreds of tickets for our clients and can assist with buying tickets, saving you time trying to navigate through ticketing websites, setting up accounts and dealing with complicated payment systems. Wonderful can even assist with getting tickets to concerts that are sold out. To make a request, you may contact us on Kakao talk, Facebook Messenger or Email, and provide us the following information:
1. Name of the concert/artist and preferred concert date
2. Number of tickets to be purchased.
3. Seating section preferences.
4. Preferred budget.
For most concerts we can secure tickets directly using our own accounts. However, there are times when the concert rules require us to purchase tickets using our client's personal accounts. During those times, we can help make a global account for you and use it to book tickets.
Most Kpop concerts have 2 ticket sales, a fan club presale and a general sale for non-fan club members. If you have a fan club account, we can help secure tickets during the presale. Even if tickets sell out, we can still assist with purchasing available third party ticket options based on your budget and seating preferences.
For the payment, you may choose to pay using 2 payment options.
a) If you have a Korean bank account you can wire transfer the cost of the ticket directly to our bank account
b) Alternatively, we can charge your bank card.
Regarding pricing, there are NO processing fees when you pay us via bank wire transfer. In other words, you will pay the cost of the ticket, shipping and handling. When we charge your bank card, there is an 8.5% processing fee that goes to the payment processor for their services. We do NOT benefit from this fee. We do charge a 5,000 KRW fee for shipping and handling within the country, and we can either hold the tickets for you to pick them up, or we can arrange to have them delivered to your preferred address. We can also arrange to have tickets sent abroad for an additional fee.
Wonderful acts as your personal assistant so we'll keep you updated throughout the process. In addition to concerts and musicals, we can also assist with signing up for fan meetings and Korean TV shows, ticket raffles, K-pop competitions, purchasing K-Pop merchandise (even from third party sites like Bunjang and Jungonara) and more.
