Korean Indie Music

Postby dingguya » May 23rd, 2009 11:34 am

I'm into indie and alternative music a lot and while visiting Korea for 2 weeks I attended a concert there of 소규모-아카시아밴드 (Sogyumo Acacia Band). They played at 상상마당 Live Hall and I uploaded a movie of one of the songs on Youtube.

Check it out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6MoEIYOWsxs

I was wondering if there are any good Korean indie bands out there. My (Korean) girlfriend is luckily into the same music as I am, so she gave me a bunch of names (i.e. Lucid Fall).

Share your Korean indie/alternative music here! ^^

Nell. You probably already know this group but it's the only indie band I know. They are still active with only releasing their lastest album last year. My favourite song of their's is A.S which is on the album Healing Process.
I love Korean Pop <3

You should give "peppertones" a listen. They are an underground kpop band.

Does anyone know if there is a site like http://www.jamendo.com/ in Korea? I haven't been able to locate any Korean artist over there...
