SEOUL (Yonhap) — American pop diva Mariah Carey has come under fire from her Korean fans over the quality of her performance at her first dedicated concert in South Korea in 11 years.

The singer performed at Seoul’s Olympic Park on Wednesday as part of her Asian concert tour to promote her 14th studio album, “Me. I Am Mariah … The Elusive Chanteuse.”

The concert had been highly anticipated by local fans because it marked the singer’s first dedicated concert in South Korea since 2003. The show also marked her first overseas concert tour since 2006. She last visited South Korea to promote an album in October 2009.

However, local Internet forums and blogs have been flooded with complaints that the performance was one of the worst ever by the singer.

“I was greatly disappointed at her,” one South Korean netizen wrote on Friday.

The netizen was one of many fans demanding a refund.

They claimed she was 20 minutes late to the show, unable to reach high-pitched passages of her song “Emotions,” forgot some of the lyrics to the song “My All” and ignored the audience’s shouts for an encore.

But the show’s local operator, Yescom Entertainment, rejected the claims, saying there was no problem with her performance or demeanor.
