Ticketing site YES24 will be taking legal actions against those who used a so-called macro system to purchase concert tickets. 


On August 24, a representative of YES24 announced, "We are preparing to sue Cho and 6 others who continuously used macro to purchase a mass amount of EXO, SHINee, and other idol group's concert tickets. Previously, we met and warned Cho, and even signed a contract [with him] stating he will never again purchase tickets this way. However, he was found using the macro system to purchase SHINee concert tickets again."

It was revealed that Cho purchased 320 tickets to SHINee's upcoming concert using the macro system. Cho and 6 others who utilized the unethical method to buy and sell tickets to other buyers are expected to face penalties following a trial.

    I understand the concern of Yes24, but then they should also make it possible for foreigners to buy tickets of these concerts (SHINee, EXO) via their site since they have a monopole on the sellings. It's currently impossible for a foreigner to buy tickets for SME artists concerts on Yes24. So please, make the whole thing ethical for everybody. Many concerts from other labels are currently available on Interpark and we can buy them at the normal price without a problem.

    Yes24 does have an Engish site, mind you not every concert is listed. I get the feeling it's not always up to the site, but up to the artist or their company whether tickets will be available on the other language sites.
