It’s week 2 of our 3 week HongdaeFest special, in which we had a bunch of awesome Korean Indie bands stop by the Eatyourkimchi Nasty Studio and talk about their music videos and their performances for HongdaeFest. Booya!

I hope some of you went to the shows this week. If you didn’t/couldn’t, you still have time to go this week and next week! It’s so easy! Just get on an airplane and…well, not that easy for all of you. But for those of you here in Korea, we hope to see you there. For those of you outside of Korea, we hope you at least have fun with this video and see some bands that you like.

Here’s the lineup we’re introducing this week:

Although we didn’t film this location, we mentioned that House Of Burning Heart is down the street from Rolling Hall. If you want to specifically go here, go to Hapjeong Station (LINE 2) exit 5 and follow our map instructions. It’s a 5 minute walk from there, and it’ll be on the second floor of a building so look up!

MARCH 29: Harry Big Button at


(GwangheungChang Station, LINE 6)

We didn’t get a chance to go here because it’s outside of our walking area but it’s only one subway stop away from Sangsu Station! If you love rock and roll, this is the band to see if you can only make one concert. Harry Big Button are so awesome, we saw them live at Club FF with a whole awesome lineup of bands, but this time it’s just a Harry Big Button concert. WAAAAHOOO!!

Eco Bridge Cafe

MARCH 30: Papercut Project

I seriously have no idea where this place is…sorry…if anyone knows anything about it, let us know!

Luckily, a really cool Korean Indie Artist that we like a lot a lot a lot saw our first HongdaeFest video and wants to do something for their upcoming promo, which we’re shooting this week. Hooray for more Indie!
