K Crunch Indie: Views, Faces, Kidds, and Skies

Hey everyone! As you might have seen yesterday, we’ve revamped our K Crunch segment to be weekly, rather than monthly. We’ve noticed that a lot of people, in both Korea and not in Korea, have trouble finding good Korean indie music. Trust us, it’s out there. We often head to Hongdae, a very artsy and musically friendly part of Seoul near an art University, and they have TONS, and I mean TONS of venues for local indie bands to play. But how can we spread this news to other people? It’s not like everyone lives in Korea, so we’re hoping to use this new playlist format to talk about an indie song, and then send people over to their video to give them a bigger view count and hopefully some new subscribers.

Also, we’ve got some friends at the awesomely helpful website Korean Indie (hi Anna!!! HIII!!! ANNA hiii!!!!!! HI HI HI!!!!!! *jumps around like crazy people..Anna pretends to not know us and walks away embarrassed*) It’s an awesome site that reports on the Indie scene, and they agreed to help update us on new Indie bands that we would probably never find on our own.

One last thing, there are A LOT of people leaving suggestions about their fav Korean Indie bands, if you leave your response as a YouTube video response rather than a comment, we just might feature YOU in our playlist too! OoOOOooOOooHHHHH! DO IT!!!! ^^

Ok! Enough chat! ONWARDS!!!! *fist pump to the sky* Let’s make this short and sweet, oh and don’t forget to check out the website Korean Indie for more info on the bands!

  1. Simon, I just wanted to say that I really hate you right now because you got me obsessed with the song, “What is Love” by EXO-K.  The boys’ voices are just too sexy to turn off.  Curse you, Simon!

  3. Jang Ki Ha rocks~!
    I went to his concert when he came to the states…
    It was really nice!
    He was great,
    I love it when artists knows how to hype up the crowd, and how to pace a concert.
    What was even nicer is that I got to meet him after the concert and get his autograph on his CD!!!
    He was really nice, and seemed kinda surprised at how popular he was in the states.

  5. My fave Korean indie song is actually kinda popular, so I’m afraid a lot of K-pop lovers might have already heard it. Its Americano by 10cm.
    If that’s one that’s already had a lot of exposure, then I’ll recommend another awesome song that I LOVE, which is Trouble Maker by The KOXX. (questionable name, I know, but they do kinda have that rebel-rock thing going on)
