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.  Is that…a pimple?  Did this guy maybe forget to brush his hair? Are those…INSTRUMENTS!? Yes!  Oh God YES!    Indie 4 lyfe!  I still don’t see anyone that looks like they just picked something off the floor of their apartment, gave it a sniff and put it on.  I’ll be waiting patiently for that.

  4. Wow I LOVE 장기하와 얼굴들. I was looking around for more of their music and I found their ‘별일 없이 산다’ album. I listened to it and love it, and I was wondering if you knew where I could get a hardcopy sent to America? I looked online but all I saw was itunes, and I use MP3s or WMAs only. :(

  6. As I was searching for more Chang Kiha I found this guy on a site. He isn’t ‘Korean’ indie, he is American, but I really like him and I think you will like him too if you haven’t already heard him. I don’t have a camera, or else I would send you a video response :
