It is a pleasure for us to attend the KIMCHI (Korean Idols Music Concert Hosted in Indonesia) Press Conference at Sands Ballroom 1, today, 14th April 2011 to clear out all the issues regarding the concert which going to be held in Jakarta this 4th June 2011, this show is supported by South Korean Embassy in Jakarta.
For your information, KIMCHI will be featuring Super Junior (10 members), Park Jung Min (SS501), The Boss (DGNA/DNA), Girl’s Day and finally rookie idol group X-5. The concert venue will be at Istora Senayan. No other artists will be performing except the 5 of them!
Many are wondering that will Super Junior comes in full team – here is 10 members -, Mr. Sean as the Managing Director of WProduction answered that according to the contract wproduction signed with SM Entertainment, they will come for KIMCHI as 10 members. And you can be happy for that.
Also Why X-5, a relatively new kpop idol group is in KIMCHI? According to Mr. Sean, X-5 comes with The Boss as they are in the same company and Wproduction would like to expose X-5 to the Indonesian kpop lovers.
Mr. Sean also said that the audience target for this concert is 7,000 people as that is the maximum capacity of the Istora Senayan.
He added about the ticket prices which are expensive are because of the venue capacity, they already tried their best to serve the demand by providing tribune 2 tickets. People are comparing KIMCHI to the ticket price in Singapore, Singapore Indoor Stadium can hold up to 12,000 people, so they couldn’t do it as the venue capacity in Jakarta is very different compare to Malaysia’s Bukit Jalil and Singapore’s Indoor Stadium.
And for your information, Istora Senayan is a venue that has been chosen by the Korean management, it is the most suitable place to hold KIMCHI.
If you are still wondering if KIMCHI is for real, yes, Mr. Sean answered it firmly that they have signed the contract and already fulfilled the contract demand. Wproduction has never cancelled any concerts, and Wproduction is the one who bring Rain for World Tour and Kimbum fanmeeting.
Super Junior is the main performer for this event, and rumors said that they will only sing for 2 songs, in other kpop festival like this, usually the performers will sing at least 4 songs, so Super Junior as the main performer, they will sing for more than 4 (four) songs. Super Junior is scheduled to be performed last in KIMCHI.
So don’t hesitate to buy KIMCHI Ticket at the public sales in Blitz Atrium, Grand Indonesia 17th April 2011 starting at 10AM till at most 10PM. Public sales will have limited ticket quotas as at most around 20% of the KIMCHI Tickets will be on sale at online ticket boxes which will be announced later.
There are only 5 tickets: Tribune 2, Tribune 1, Festival 1, Festival 2, and VIP, so there is no Exclusive VIP priced 3 million.
