Black Bag Aims to Influence Hongdae, Idols and Hip-Hop

“We want to be a band that is influential not only in Hongdae, but also to musicians in all areas, such as idol groups or the hip-hop scene.”

Black Bag is a band comprised of vocalist Jang Min Woo, guitarist Jeff, bassist Lee Hyezee and drummer Koo Taewook. This four member rock band isn’t that well known to the public, but it is one of the biggest new bands in the Hongdae scene.

The band released its first mini album Beyond the Sky in February, and entertained a 400 member audience that filled up the standing areas in its exclusive concert held in the Sangsang Madang in Hongdae.

The band also put its name up on the list of contestants for KBS2’s Top Band 2, which will start airing in May. Top Band 2 is boasting an even stronger lineup this season, with well-known indie bands such as Monni, T.A-Copy, Nemesis, TransFixion, Pia, Prana and SuperKidd joining in the competition.
