About Us

The purpose of Korean Indie is to help readers discover the huge diversity of music in South Korea and musicians of Korean descent. While the term “indie” usually defines one type of music, there are lots of exciting and cool bands that play a wide variety 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.
