'Million sellers' NCT 127 mocked for not selling out $39 tickets for their '2 Baddies' comeback show
Fans joke how NCTzens flexed NCT 127's 'million sellers' title but aren't able to sell out a small venue with average-priced tickets for their comeback showcase
SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA: K-pop groups are in an unending era of competing with each other. Be it in terms of sales or charting or popularity, each fandom wants to be better than the other and this often leads to fan wars. Such has been the case for NCT 127 and Blackpink over the last few weeks after SM Entertainment announced that their boy group would be making a comeback on the same day as YG Entertainment's mega girl group.
NCT 127 fans claimed that SM Entertainment was setting the boy group up for failure after putting them in direct competition for their first comeback in a year against Blackpink who had been on a hiatus for two years. Other than that, over the last few years, NCT 127 has also achieved the title of being a million, double million as well as triple million-seller with their albums. However, recent reports allege that NCT 127 was not able to sell out tickets to their comeback show for '2 Baddies' proving that their million seller title is a hoax.
NCT 127 still not able to sell out tickets to their comeback showcase
NCT 127, who is currently gearing up for their full-length comeback with '2 Baddies' that will be released on September 16 will be hosting a comeback show for their album. However, a Nate Pann community post alleged that NCT 127 was not able to sell out tickets to their comeback show hosted at a comparatively smaller venue. The post also alleges that the tickets to the show are priced at $39 (55k KRW) which is an average price when it comes to such comeback stages.
But, NCTzens (fans of NCT) claim that this is all a lie and that the boy group has already sold out all of the available 10k seats for the NCT 127 '2 Baddies' Comeback Show 'Faster'. One fan said, "Lies. only available seats are now in areas 4 and 6 which opened up later due to the high demand."

'Million seller and empty show'
Fans are now mocking the boy group based on the Nate Pann article as one user said, "What did i say, when the pandemic ends and artists started doing world tour , we will see which group who REALLY has real demand. Screw that 'one million seller' lmao." One user mocked, "But they sold 2 million albums."
Another user mocked, "Million sellleerrrrrrrrr & empty concert." One more user said, "And it keeps getting worse every hour." Another fan said, "Not #NCT127 fans getting exposed for bulk buying albums that didn’t translate to actual amount of fans lmao that’s a LOT of empty seats for a group that’s considered POPULAR in KOREA."
