Lee Seung Gi is set to embark on his first Asian tour in four years. However, fans’ responses are no longer as enthusiastic as before.

The singer will kick off his Asian tour concert titled The Dreamer’s Dream – Chapter 2 in May. Starting with the Seoul concert held at the Link Art Center from May 4th to 7th, he will be stopping in four countries – Tokyo (May 12th) and Osaka (May 14th), Taipei (May 21st), and Manila (May 27th).

Lee Seung Gi’s upcoming event marks the first solo concert he will hold in Korea since his 2013 concert at Olympic Park Gymnastics Stadium. While a concert held after such a long time would normally be expected to sell out quickly and generate excitement among fans, his upcoming concert seems to be lacking the same level of enthusiasm as before. The 15,000-seat Olympic Gymnastics Arena was fully packed ten years ago, but this time, 25 to 40 tickets are left unsold per session as of the morning of the 20th.

Currently, 141 seats remain unsold out of the 1,908 seats available for the four-day concert. Since ticket sales opened on April 6th, tickets for the weekend sessions have not sold out even after two weeks.

Whether a concert is sold out or not indicates how popular a star is. Industry officials believe that having unsold tickets for his small concert indicates that Lee Seung Gi’s star power has declined.

His popularity started to fall after he went public with his relationship with Lee Da In. Her father, Kyeon Mi Ri’s husband, is currently awaiting a Supreme Court ruling on charges of manipulating stock prices for illegal profit.
