Those fans under 18 who have purchased the tickets to her upcoming concert in Seoul will get refund.
There's at least one country who won't let their teenagers watch Lady GaGa live. The South Korean authorities have determined that those under 18 years old are banned from attending the pop star's concert in Seoul on April 27.
The show's promoter notified GaGa's camp about the new rule on late Thursday, March 29. They previously set the age limit from 12 and now will offer refund for those underage teens who have bought her tickets. A local media said that less than 1% of the roughly 38,000 tickets were sold to teenagers.
The South Korean authorities did not offer the reason why they moved up the age restriction. They were consequently criticized for raising the age restriction in GaGa's concert but not K-pop's which is sometimes full of suggestive moves.
The concert taking place at Seoul's Olympic Stadium is the kick off date on her world tour. She will later visit several Asian countries such as Hong Kong, Japan and Indonesia.
