As K-pop group BLACKPINK plans to meet fans around the world through their world tour, the price of tickets for the Seoul concert has drawn a lot of attention.
Last week, the ticket price for the “BLACKPINK WORLD TOUR” concert [BORN PINK] SEOUL” was unveiled on the Interpark Ticket booking site.
According to the announcement, the most expensive “Platinum Pink” category costs 264,000 won (about 198.50 euros). If you book this area, you can have access to the Soundcheck of BLACKPINK members before the start of the concert.

In addition, the prize for the first concert of BLACKPINK’s world tour “BLACKPINK 2018 TOUR [IN YOUR AREA] SEOUL X BC CARD” held in 2018 was 110,000 won for all seats.
