Popular idol group SNSD’s fans in their 30’s and 40’s, also known as the ‘Uncle Corps’, can be seen in department stores. Starting from the 28th of last month, customers who make purchases of 400,000 won [~$323] or more get tickets to either the ‘SNSD, Kara, Brown Eyed Girls, Shinee Concert’, which will take place at the Seoul Olympic Stadium on the 13th, or to the ‘Lee Seungchul Concert’. This has caused male fans in their 30’s and 40’s to come out in full force.

Hyundai Department Stores analyzed data on those who received tickets up until the 2nd and it found that, among the 2979 people that chose the SNSD concert, 58.6% were males. Furthermore, 45% of the males were in their 30’s and 40’s. On the other hand, 3921 people chose tickets to the ‘Lee Seungchul Concert’, and 86.2% of them were females. Among them, 53% were females in their 40’s and 50’s.

The concert is to celebrate Hyundai Department Store’s opening of its ‘U-Plex’ store in Shinchon, which specializes in fashion for young people. The event will continue until the 6th.
