French fans demand extension of sold-out Korean pop concertBy 이우영

Hundreds of French fans rallied in front of the Louvre Museum in Paris on Sunday to demand an extension of a Korean pop concert after tickets for the event sold out in 15 minutes.
Some 300 young people picketed while dancing to Korean pop tunes for over an hour, demanding that the concert scheduled for June 10 be extended by one day.
Korean pop culture, known as "Hallyu," or the Korean Wave, has been gaining worldwide popularity in recent years. Girls'
Generation, Super Junior, SHINee and other top groups managed by the agency S.M. Entertainment are scheduled to perform.
Fans at the rally claimed some people had already begun to scalp tickets after hoarding hundreds of them when they went on sale online on April 26.
Calls to S.M. Entertainment's office in Seoul seeking comment went unanswered on Monday morning.
