The performance days where Kim Junsu is casted as the main role in Musical Mozart, all seat tickets were sold out. In a short amount of time, the total 15 performances of Kim Junsu with approximately 45,000 tickets were already sold.
Even right after it was known that Kim Junsu was going to be casted, a chaos happened. When the 1st ticket sales opened, his fans bought 6000 tickets in an hour. On the 2nd sale, it sold out in 2 hours and had collapsed the site’s server. For the 3rd and 4th round ticket, despite Kim Junsu’s ticket sales that already opened in different time period (than the other Mozart actors), still the site connection slowed down and the tickets were sold old in only 3 hours.
This is something that never happen since Jo Seung-woo’s all ticket sold out which was ever happened in the past.
Other singers who had been casted in musicals as well such as Super Junior (Kangin, Heechul, Yesung, Sungmin) or Girl’s Generation (Jessica), Big Bang (Daesung, Seungri) and FT Island (Hongki, Jaejin)’s ticket sales has not been comparable to the mass result of Kim Junsu’s.
The ticket power made by Kim Junsu, an inexperienced idol singer in musical industry to set a stage which requires ability to sing, dance, and act at the same time has yet created many controversies. Economists have been predicting there will be more celebrities especially idol singers who will participate in this musical industry in the future.
To cast an idol star definitely never fail in supporting tickets sales. With Kim Junsu appearance, there are more audiences in range age of 10th – early 20th that give bigger attention to such musical genre performance as ‘Mozart’. Even it helps the entire show online ticket sales since the teenagers now have developed interest in watching the musical stage and went booking the other actors’ performances as well.
Let’s expecting the best musical stage “Mozart!” in the first half of 2010, from January 20 to February 21 which will take place at Sejong Cultural Center Grand Theater.
