Hallyu star Lee Byung-hun had to apologize to his Japanese fans for delays and confusion over his concerts due to a seating problem Tuesday in Tokyo.

The two concerts titled "Dramatic Live Stage IRIS", featuring the songs from the television drama "IRIS", which were held at the Saitama Super Arena, were both delayed for one hour because of a rearrangement of the seats.

An additional stage was abruptly set up in the zone reserved for standing room only tickets, leaving some 2,800 fans to seek other seats for both the day and night concerts.

The organizer noticed the problem only one hour before the event and prepared alternative seats on the fourth and fifth floors but the fans continued to strongly protest and 15 cops were called to the venue.

The organizer explained that there was a miscommunication between the ticket issuer and the concert operator.

"I am sorry for delaying the concert for a seating problem. Please understand and I will perform more than I prepared", Lee told his fans at the concerts.

The Korean drama series "IRIS" is broadcast through TBS in Japan every Wednesday night after it scored huge popularity in Korea for its dynamic action scenes shot at global location and its star-studded casting such as Kim Tae-hee, Jung Joon-ho, Kim So-yeon and even T.O.P. (Choi Seung-hyun) from boy band Big Bang.
