SM Entertainment said on Wednesday it will hold an additional K-pop concert “SM Town Live World Tour in Paris” on June 11, after hundreds of French fans of K-pop rallied in Paris calling for an extra concert last week. Their move came after tickets for a June 10 concert, to be held at Le Zenith de Paris, sold out in just 15 minutes. The protests involved a flash mob and a group dance to Korean pop music.
