Some even brought up the idol’s former Chinese fansite “Taeyong Bar,” which engaged in scamming activities. International stans also expressed that SM should’ve done a fanmeeting for Taeyong instead of a solo concert. Here’s how netizens reacted:

  • “For SM, to get a solo concert, you need to be at the level of Taeyeon, Taemin, and Baekhyun right? Seriously, this is freaking nonsense.”
  • “Can Taeyong even fill up his seats? Isn’t he not a popular member? I’m not swearing at him, I just don’t know.”
  • “Even during his heydays, he got a solo even before RIIZE debuted and he started losing fans, and he still failed.”
  • “Now that they’re actually giving him a solo concert first, it’s just dumbfounding.”
  • “And his scamming Chinese bar should be the one to fill up his 200 won seats.”
  • “Not even SM Payola can save him lmao, he’s gonna flop.”
  • “The prices are too much, instead of a concert they should’ve done a fanmeeting because he doesn’t even have enough songs to hold a concert.”

This was followed by their frustration towards Taeyong’s fans, who according to netizens, will decide to gatekeep the idol’s concert. Read their comments below:

  • “Meanwhile the Taeyong fans are saying that only Taeyong fans should come and if you’re not a Taeyong fan, you shouldn’t go.”
  • “They should be thankful that other members even come to watch him. Because of him, they can only do Asian tours, this is so annoying.”
  • “If there are other groups’ fans who are thinking of going, don’t go.”
