SINGAPORE- Singapore fans of Korean star Lee Min Ho were shocked when someone tried to sell a free pair of tickets to his private event here for $4,000.
This person had posted the offer on Lee's local fan club Minoz Singapore's Facebook page.
Why the exorbitant price?
These coveted tickets - only a hundred were available - were for the private event by Korean cosmetics brand Innisfree Festa.
There were neither public ticket sales nor a fan meeting open to the public.
The tickets could only be obtained from a free goodie bag and won from an Instagram competition.
Both mechanics were determined by the company.
Lee, 26, was in town on Tuesday as Innisfree Festa's spokesman and met the media for a press conference at the Pan Pacific Singapore hotel.
The private fan event was held afterwards at the same venue.
Tickets to the event were given out at the Innisfree Festa store launch at Takashimaya on Nov 22.
Each of the 45 goodie bags had a pair of tickets in them.
