When I was proposed with an editorial, the theme was, of course, about music. So this editorial should have been about a musician’s unique perspective, amusing experiences, personal opinions.

It’s not only in Seoul you can find Korean indie bands. There isn’t a well-established label or continuous release of notable albums but in Busan (and other areas), there are remarkable bands that are hard to ignore.
At the behest of Korean Indie, Romantiqua wanted to share a small glimpse of our life as a band in the Seoul’s indie scene. It’s been more than two years as a band and we’ve been fortunate to have developed strong personal relationships.
When Chris told me that I could write for koreanindie.com, I was half excited (I don’t think it would be necessary to explain this one) and half self-suspicious. What could I possibly write about my life as a musician?
연습과 곡 작업을 위한 공간이 절실하게 필요했던 우리는 서울 시내 거의 모든 지하실을 둘러본 끝에 드디어 적당한 곳을 찾아냈다. 이곳을 연습실로 만들기 위해서는 방음 공사가 필요했는데, 비용을 절감하기 위해 우리가 직접 시공하고 전문적인 기술이 필요한 부분만 업자(이하 ‘아저씨’)에게 맡기기로 했다.
