    Is that a good ticket selling rate?

    What would DBSK sell in three days? Probably sold out in the first 8 hours?

    SS501 and DBSK are indeed rivals but don't brag DBSK now because you know the situation they are in...at least SS501 is as strong and compact as ever...and yes, DBSK is the senior...comparing them to SS501 will not matter...plus, SS501 has their fair share of fans...at least they're not under slave contracts unlike SM artists.

  4. what reaction is that?!? ss501 cant even be compared to dbsk, ojay...ss501 even lags way behind super junior and big bang... woot!!!

    well, also suju concert, same with big bang and dbsk can sell out tickets in just minutes... and even before selloing it... crashing the server...

    Actually, I think SM's Marketing is better than DSP's Marketing... that's why... however, I feel that korean music business is very tough to their idol... as you see... law suit from 3 member of dbsk... and health's problem of kim hyun joong...

    Both groups are awesome.

    PLEASE do not compare DBSK and SS501. Both DBSK and SS501 are in a good relationship..They are very good friends between the members.

    Are you guys crazy? SS501 is the next fandom in KOREA duh! They can be compared to Suju and DBSK! They've always been! Yes, DBSK is on top but people should not count SS501 out.

    Sorry but SS501 is bigger than Big Bang as of now. And they target a different audience since BB is not really a "flower" group. The biggest fanbases is Cassiopeia (DBSK), ELF (Suju) and Triple S (SS501)...you don't know that? It's always been red, blue and green balloons in dream concerts!

    And besides, this is SS501's first move in Taipei.
