Ariana Grande heavily criticized by Korean fans after her first concert in Korea

Fans in South Korea are highly disappointed at Ariana Grande's unprofessionalism.�

On August 15, Ariana Grande was scheduled to perform at Gocheok Sky Dome�in Seoul for her 'Dangerous Woman Tour'.�Prior to the performance in Korea, Ariana visited Japan from August 10 to 13. She was scheduled to arrive in Korea on the 14th, however, her arrival was delayed.�

Ariana eventually arrived at Kimpo Airport�at 5 pm KST on August 15, which was only 3 hours before her concert. It was explained that she delayed her arrival in order to avoid the press.

Korean fans, who've been dearly waiting for the pop star, were already starting to get upset and angry at Ariana's late arrival. Fans who purchased the expensive VIP tickets were also unable to watch the rehearsal as originally scheduled. Furthermore, the Meet & Greet session reportedly got delayed and shortened.�

Matters worsened when Ariana shared a video via Instagram of herself happily singing in the bathroom just an hour before the concert. It's assumed the singing session in the bathroom was her rehearsal.�

The pop star successfully completed her concert, however, complaints from Korean fans skyrocketed. Those who spent�650,000 KRW (~570 USD) for the VIP tickets requested refunds. Many others also criticized Ariana for her rude, unprofessional behavior.�The fact that Ariana immediately left Korea after the concert while she enjoyed several more days in Japan after her concerts was�also a topic of criticism.�

Comments stated, "Don't come any more", "She's looking down on the Korean fans", "She tours Japan after her concert but just immediately leaves Korea", "She has a terrible personality", "She deceived the Korean fans. So disappointed", ''I guess she just came for the money", "Korea was just a pit stop for her", "No manners at all."

Seoul, you were magical. Thank you for your beautiful, loving energy tonight. @alfredoflores
