IU lately grew to become the first-ever feminine artist to carry a solo live performance on the Jamsil Olympic Stadium. Her present, “The Golden Hour – Under the Orange Sun,” went on for 2 consecutive days, September 17 and 18, with a recorded complete footfall of 80,000. An occasion of such scale inevitably required plenty of manpower to achieve success.
According to studies, 90 performers appeared on stage with IU in the course of the live performance, whereas a complete of 1400 employees members have been working behind the scenes to place the occasion collectively. So, to differentiate them simply from the attendees, each crew member was given a custom-made t-shirt. The shirt was created by New Balance, a model that IU represents as a model ambassador.
But after the live performance, these unique t-shirts have been seen being offered on resale web sites. Fans famous that the worth was ridiculously marked up, round ₩15,000 KRW (about $10.70 USD) to ₩20,000 KRW (about $14.20 USD).
IU’s company, Edam Entertainment, said that they’d tried to get better all these restricted version t-shirts after the live performance to stop reselling however finding each final one of many 1,400 of them was an unattainable process. Fans urged the corporate to launch these t-shirts as official merchandise so they may purchase them at a good value. But the company replied saying producing merchandise for this live performance could be unattainable because of their given schedule.
“It is impossible to proceed with the production of a new concert MD due to the schedule of the MD reservation. However, we will deliver the T-shirt production to relevant departments.”
