Indie Music in South Korea: Number One Korean at Impact 89FM

It’s already been four years since I arrived in Seoul for my study abroad program (am I that old already?) I was excited and ready to wander the city. It’s a good thing I did, because that’s how I discovered Hongdae. Hongdae is a very small neighborhood surrounding the artsy Hongik University; the site of Korea’s first punk band Crying Nut and where Korean indie music has lived for the past twenty-some years. The whole area surrounding Hongdae is in fact a hotspot for young people, as the nearby Yonsei University, Sogang University, and Ehwa Women’s University bring in more students and their college-aged friends.
