My new friend Nayoung and I stayed at a real trashy underground pub which looked like a rehearsal's room from a Punk Band and even smelt like that. I remember one rehearsal's room that we were rehearsing at with our band in Frankfurt in some kind of catacombs - it had exactly the same smell of being humid, old and without fresh air for too many years..kind a real Shish ;). One guy was on stage playing his guitar, screaming and crying. Haha also some kind of real art shish ;). After that we went to a small club called Bull's and I saw my first Korean Rockband live. "Hanumpa" or in Korean: 한음파
The entrance was for free and the band really has its own unique sound with many improvisational parts. The singer also plays the traditional mongolian horse-head-fiddle. For those who want to listen: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RAn1TEhfFrI
In the end we saw a really good Flamenco Guitarist sitting in front of a telecommunications shop.
It seemed like he had chosen this place because of the bright lights in the window that appeared like he's sitting on a stage in Las Vegas. A young guy with his hair in his face and the head down on his guitar.
It seemed that noone except us was really recognizing the beautiful sounds he produced and people were just passing by. What a pitty for them. My friend told me: It's so nice walking around with you that you are new to this place. I can see Hongdae with total different eyes in this moment. I see and listen things that I was not aware of before. For example the Flamenco Guitar Player :)
