Tickets for actor Jang Keun-suk's fan meeting in Taiwan sold out in just three hours of going on sale, according to his agency on Tuesday.
Fans rushed to Taiwanese music site 'g-music' Sunday to purchase tickets for the event, initially causing the server to crash before all 2,500 tickets were sold, Jtree Company said.
A local media company had also reported, "Online, Jang's fans caused the server to go down while offline, fans from all over the country arrived at the ticket booth three days early to wait in line for the tickets."
The fan meeting is the starting point of Jang's Asian tour also set to take place in China, Hong Kong and Singapore between March and May.
Meanwhile, Jtree also added that the actor is being approached by various companies throughout Asia to be featured in their commercials. "We are currently in the process of signing with a company for an ad that will air in Korea and other Asian countries."
Jang recently held a fan meeting in Korea attended by 3,000 fans at Seoul's Olympic Park Olympic Hall last month. His fans from eight countries throughout Asia also turned up at the event.
The actor made his debut into the industry at the early age of five as a catalog model. His most notable appearances were in Korean sitcom "Nonstop 4" and Korean dramas "Beethoven Virus." Last year, he played the role of an eccentric lead singer of idol group A.N.JELL in TV series "Minamishineyo."
