No. 1 Korean Album Release Concert

Whew, it’s a big week for music lovers, with so many Korean musicians uniting for the Lee Jinwon tribute Thursday, and the last Club Day today. But there are also a host of other gigs going on this weekend, including an album release party on Saturday for the popular ska band No. 1 Korean.

The band wrote and recorded this album in late 2010, a year in which they also graced such stages as the Pentaport Rock Festival, Time to Rock Festival, and Green Plugged. Indeed, in 2010 No. 1 Korean showed that they could convert their energy and charisma onto some of Korea’s larger stages, and managed to win over many new fans in the process.

The No. 1 Korean team wrote the songs for their new third album, 외롭지 말아요 (“Oerobji Malayo,” or “Don’t Be Lonely”), over the last two years, shooting for a general concept of “what things can we get from a natural life”. They recorded it at Studio 801 from October to December. For the first time they recorded the songs altogether in one room, trying to capture their live energy in the studio.

To help launch the new album, they have even made a new music video for their song “Korean Alphabet”, featuring Lee Seok-yul from Kingston Rudieska and rapper Koonta. The video was shot around Seoul with the help of friends and new production company Dada Productions. Having previously worked on a video for the solo album by the lead singer of Kwon Milk, the team put together a video that captures the charm and enthusiasm that this six-piece band possesses.

For their new album showcase, they will be joined by several special guests, including No Brain, Sugar Donut, Koonta, Lee Seuk-yul (from Kingston Rudieska), and Poppin Han Jun.
