Rising K-pop boy band B1A4 has shown off their up-and-coming status by selling out their new concerts in their hometown of Korea.

They sold out some 10,000 tickets for their five-night Seoul concerts “2013 B1A4 LIMITED SHOW ‘AMAZING STORE’,” which will be held at the UNIQLO-AX Hall in Seoul from August 7 to 11, according to their agency WM Entertainment’s statement Friday.

After clearing out all 5,000 tickets in three minutes of opening ticket sales only for fans on Wednesday, the remaining 5,000 tickets for general audiences were gone in five minutes again last night, the statement said.

Having sold out a slew of their previous concerts, namely their first Seoul concert last October and Japan arena concerts this February, B1A4 is “showing a drastic upturn in the concert circle being in a slump,” an official with the upcoming concert’s organizer CJ E&M was quoted as saying.

Held under the theme of a toy store and its best selling toys dubbed “TOY B1A4,” the August gig will show the five boys’ firm will to step up to musicians who are actively joining in creating the set-list and arranging the songs, the statement added.

B1A4, who debuted in 2011 with their first single “O.K,” scooped up their first TV music show crown with “What’s Happening?,” their latest self-written title tune to the 4th mini-album rolled out last month.
