Local Kpop fans outraged over show fraud

Local Kpop fans outraged over show fraud

Friday, July 05, 2013, 17:09 GMT+7

Local Vietnamese K-pop fans have been expressing their fury on online forums for possibly not being reimbursed for their exorbitant tickets to the cancelled 2013 Asia Super Showcase show, which was advertised to feature several celebrated K-pop bands.

According to the advertisement, the 2013 Asia Super Showcase would be a large-scale show, expected to feature several popular K-pop bands including Super Junior, EXO M and BTOB.

The tickets sold like hot cakes for VND800,000 (US$40) - VND3.3 mil on the bands’ fansites and fanpages.

However, after more than six months, the show never materialized.

The show’s local organizer, Vesta Communications, released its final announcement last Apr that the show would be delayed indefinitely as their Korean partner had yet to decide on the three Korean bands’ performing schedules.

Vesta also promised to reimburse the ticket fares as soon as possible.

However, the ticket buyers never heard anything else from the organizer until July 4, when they said on a local newswire that as they received the bookings only while fansites and fanpages collected the ticket fares, they had nothing to do with the reimbursement.

Tuoi Tre has tried to phone Vesta several times but all its numbers are unreachable.
