    hello..i’m just excited to hear this award would do at Kuala Lumpur..but after saw the ticket price it make me unexcited..so worried that how can i get the money to buy the ticket in a such short time..because i’m only student that rely to the parent money and loan..although rite now is the ending semester..i’m really sure the audience for sure come from the student…why organizer does not give the choice either to buy ticket for 1 day or 2 day not only 2 day? i hope organizer would consider about the ticket price…thank you..

  • xavier

    Thanks lots for understanding 😉

  • Jolyn

    Tickets are sooooo expensive… Even working adults like me also unable to afford… Is just like spending my 2 months meal expenses for just 2 nights. Not to mention most of the Kpop fans are students…

  • Mina Lee

    ticket price too high, as a student I can’t afford it.

  • jiebom

    So expensive.. on working day some more.. aigoo..

  • leon

  • TheBeingWise

    its not that too high. by looking at its an award show. where most of the high top performers would be attending. I’m a fan from overseas.. and I’m going. I’m not complaining since this is one of the time…where good performances are in one show.

  • xun

  • Isabel

    Sorry , can I ask is it the ticket price for two day? Which means I can just buy one ticket and enjoy both days? Thanks!!

    • yongki2310

      Yep!! the tix for 2 days access.. 🙂

  • Sherry

    I’m so excited to hear about this award show live in malaysia but Sepang international circuit is too far from my place. It take about an hour drive to get there. Hope the organizer can reallocate the location. But, I highly doubt so:(

  • Angel

    hello, can someone please tell me how and where to book tickets? I really do appreciate your cooperation.Thank you for your kindness.

    • Hi Angel 🙂

      As mentioned in the post, tickets can be purchased via TicketPro.
      Hope that helps!

  • hallyu lover

    If you’re really a super Kpops fans, not just a fan of a particular group, I’m sure you’ll be willing to pay the price to attend the GDA in KL. It is once in a lifetime chance for Malaysian Kpops fans. However, I hope the organizer can arrange the audience standings properly so that we can enjoy the performances/see clearly, not too pack as it is free standing especially for the Samsung Galaxy Zone. That’ll worth the price if everything is organised properly.

  • Cassiopiea

    I hope the organiser can bring TVXQ to GDA! I’m sure tickets will sell fast and good with TVXQ coming :DD

  • KoAme

    may i know got 1day ticket??or must buy 2day tickets?? please reply:)
    Thanks.

  • Miz_phinz

    Seating plan for Samsung Galaxy Zone!!

  • Ian

    Will there be any side events? Do you require to purchase ticket to access red carpet photo zone?

    Anyway for two days access, the price is definitely worth it.

  • RobinTan

    Hello there, i was going to purchase the ticket at 1Utama Rock Corner, but are there any public transport to GDA, i found one which is named skybus, but it will only take me to the airport which is 3KM away from the sepang circuit, so can someone please recommend me on what public transport i should be taking? Today is the last day to buy the early bird ticket, so i will appreciate if the admin would give some advice on what public transport that will take me there. Thank you in advance.

  • Hye hoon

    where the place exactly in kuala lumpur?

  • chuncheah

    May I know which channel will broadcast GDA live??

    • Hi there.

      As mentioned in the post, the pre-recorded telecast of the awards will be broadcasted in South Korea.
      And we don’t know which South Korean channels.
      There has been no news about a local broadcast.

      Thanks!

  • Saphira

    Just wondering here, if the seats are free seating that means we have to come early if we want to seat in front,rite? It’s cuz I’ve never been to a FREE SEATING concert… BTW, I’m gonna buy Samsung Galaxy Zone…

    • Hello.

      For the record, it’s stated in the post that it’s free standing & not free seating.

      Thanks!

  • kaiwen

  • JL

  • 리나

    Hi.. I have no problem for the ticket price..i am willing to pay for it. But.. All tickets is free standing?? U mean STANDING? Why must be standing? No seating zone?? *_*

  • hanizys

    i cant see any big difference between samsung galaxy zone and rock pitt..its just that samsung galaxy zone is nearer to the stage…can u please make it seating for samsung galaxy zone..i think its more worth it with that price..

  • cyn5322

    i bought the samsung galaxy zone tickets and i know it will be free standing BUT i’m hoping the organisers will consider giving us seats and plenty of space (not too many people of coz) because that will be more worth it @,@

  • user111
