Why can't girl groups sell more tickets in South Korea?

    The most I've seen from girl groups is performing in Olympic Gymnastics Arena/KPSO Dome for 2 nights. Never more than that. None has reached Gocheok Sky Dome yet let alone stadiums.

    BP is insulted by many Kpop fans for having a lot of SEA fans, yet they played 6 nights in Bangkok alone with tickets selling out in minutes.

    If SK is that important and profitable, why can't girl groups sell more tickets or play more nights there than they do in countries like US, Thailand and Japan?

    This is true & sadly i don't see it changing any time soon
    At this rate BP will graduate to stadiums to internationally but will probably still have to play 2-3 nights at kspo dome...

    Yeah, the popularity of Twice, Red Velvet, Black pink should let them be able to sell out Seoul World Cup stadium because these groups are household names there among GP and have good enough fanbase fill 100k seats at least.

    doesn't explain how people aren't willing to spend money to go to girl groups' concerts

    They can't though... that's why they are all stuck in KPSO Dome. Hell even RV haven't had any concert in KPSO Dome yet.

    Because most of them are constantly promoting in SK: college festivals, fan meetings, events, etc. The demand for a “bigger” concert is way smaller as, let’s say, the US or Japan were they don’t promote as much and you have the chance to see them once a year at best

    It is difficult for a GG to perform at a bigger venue in Korea only five GGs have performed there (SNSD, 2NE1, KARA, Twice, BP). RV is far more popular than NCT but NCT is playing larger venues in Korea. Generally, BGs have larger fandom than GGs and they sell more albums that is how it has always been.

    That's disappointing considering the huge popularity these girl groups have in SK

    Has a girl group ever actually tried? Companies sometimes choose the safer option rather than going for big venues that have never been done before, especially for women like with gg in Japan

    Well they have more of GP recognition in korea than actual fans. Concerts are expensive and unless you are an actual fan you would not spend that much money on an idol. And the fangirl culture is developed by HOT in sk it wasn't like that before HOT. When something is backed by a culture it becomes much more normal. Bunch of girls going to a bg concert will always be more acceptable than bunch of guys going to a gg concert both by general female and male population. For example korean millitary has a culture of following ggs so it is not seen as something out of ordinary and ggs have almost unrivalled popularity in the millitary. So a gg has to start the fanboy culture where it is so large that it is engraved in their culture.

    Most of korean kpop fans are female. They'd rather pay money for their oppa.
    Concert tickets in SK is cheap tho. Only half price compare to my country but they don't go to concerts regularly, not like J fans.

    1. Most of the groups aren't really successful in a true fashion to be able to sell concerts. You can have a hit song, it doesn't mean it will translate to concert tickets.

    2. Girl groups DO sell concerts. Examples have been stated above. Now give me the names of boy groups besides a few of the known ones who are also able to sell concerts.

    You can't expect a nugu indie type artist to host concerts to thousands of people. You really expect the same kind of success for every group out there, well you won't get it.

    Edit— Most people think kpop is actually popular in Korea. Not really no it's not.
