About Us

The purpose of Korean Indie is to help international readers discover the huge diversity of music in South Korea. While the term “indie” usually defines one type of music, Korea is full of exciting and cool bands that play a wide range of sounds, and we want visitors to discover them all, regardless of genre.

Korean Indie is always working to promote interesting bands and musicians through our different channels.

Began reviewing music on my site Musical Dialect. A composer of music myself and inspired by Korean indie music for many years, specifically rock and hip-hop.

Cassie (@lastxfantasy)

First time contributor. I have been interested in Korean culture for a very long time and ended up falling in love with both Korean Pop and Korean Indie.


Began sharing my love for music and Korean Indie through k-indieandmore. Falling more in love with music each day.


Too much music, too little time. Mostly Korean, Chinese and Japanese music. Rock-biased, though hip-hop is quickly taking over.
