    hmm, the gmarket web was pretty chaotic, couldn't really navigate the korean one easily either. Haha, I think it's been like that for a few tournaments and I always wondered why it isn't sold more quickly. Even the Msian Open 2013 have already started selling their tickets. Is there a good chance that I am able to buy a season pass or something (for the whole week) when I reach Korea instead of online?

    Hard to say. In 2011, the week-long passes were all sold out before the tournament started but the box office didn't open until Wednesday so even on qualifying day, it wasn't possible to buy tickets in person. Your best bet is likely to use GMarket to buy online or show up and buy daily tickets at the box office in person. That's assuming Gmarket is used again this year.

    As for why they don't start selling them earlier, who knows? It is normal, though. Last year, too, the All England and Malaysia Open had their tickets on sale long before the Korea Open did.

    Tickets are now on sale, but you need Korean language skills and a Korean bank account to buy in advance. Details are here. No sign of a week-long pass this time around.

    Hey event, I just the link on badzine too. SIGH.

    I don't see a week-long pass either, so I can forget about that I guess.

    I don't have a Korean bank account obviously, so what is the alternative... - go there and buy the tickets at the box office? Is it possible to call?

    By the way, is Day 1 of action free entry or something? Cause I read that the box office opens only on Day 2... which means I might miss the action on Tuesday (Day 1)?
