The ticket price for Jaejoong’s concert soared to as much as 1 million won ($903) with explosive demand to his last show before he enlists in the Army.

The 29-year-old idol, member of K-pop trio JYJ, held a two-day concert, titled “The Beginning of the End,” on Saturday and Sunday at Korea University in Seoul.

The tickets for Sunday’s show were said to be extremely difficult to obtain, with the first round of tickets sold out within five minutes.

Jaejoong’s label C-Jes Entertainment offered 200 additional tickets for fans, who could get one and waited at the venue to buy one from scalpers.

The ticket touts reportedly charged the desperate fans as much as 10 times more.

Shortly after his enlistment, Jaejoong will release his second solo studio album, but the exact release date is yet to be confirmed.

Jaejoong will enlist in the mandatory military service on March 31 and be discharged from service 21 months later on Dec. 30, 2016.

Several other pop stars joined the military service this month, including Super Junior members Shindong and Sungmin, who enlisted in the army on March 24 and 31, respectively.
