ASTRO's unexpected popularity in Japan has caused Fantagio Music to take extra measures for the rookie group's upcoming debut Japanese showcase, 'ASTRO THE 1st SEASON SHOWCASE IN 2016'!

Originally, ASTRO was scheduled to greet approximately 1,300 fans through a one-time event at the TSUTAYA O-EAST venue in Tokyo on October 14. But when physical pre-sales for the event kicked off, approximately 8,000 fans, close to 6 times the amount of fans originally accounted for, showed up, making it impossible for the showcase to carry out any regular sales. 


As a result, Fantagio Music has decided to add one more date to the showcase, with the upcoming event acting as a starting point for more of ASTRO's promotions throughout Asia.

I'm not even an Ahora, but that's amazing for a rookie group that haven't even promoted in that country. Everyone kept talking about ASTRO which is why I'm also surprised they weren't listed on your top rookie groups of 2016 Allkpop.

"close to 6 times the amount of fans originally accounted for, showed up, making it impossible for the showcase to carry out any regular sales." Rookies overselling their showcase in a country they haven't even promote... Isn't this good enough for you, AKP?! CAN YOU PUT THEM ON YOUR LIST NOW?!? #ASaltyAroha
