February 21, 2016

The Bon Iver show in Seoul, Korea was so good! I’ve seen him perform before, but this show was much more intimate. It was at Ax Hall, which is where I saw the Flaming Lips five years ago

Justin Vernon was just a humble as the last time I saw him, several years ago. It was the perfect weekend in Seoul.

A must-do thing as a YG fan in Seoul!

If you’re a YG fan (or Bigbang, GD, 2NE1 or Psy’s), there is one thing that you should do when you visit Seoul.

Drum roll… Watch the Hologram Concert at Klive! :)

It’s actually even cooler than it sounds with fascinating visual effects and graphics. It felt like we were actually there at a real concert.

Psy talking to us the audience!

Just look at Psy singing Oppan Gangnam Style~! Bring back 2013!

Yangsan Sabryang Culture Festival – 양산삽량문화축제

You never go long without going to a festival in Korea, but it seems like during the Spring and Fall there are festivals going on every single weekend! This weekend was no exception, but this time it was in our own backyard! This weekend was the Yangsan festival, and although we had not originally planned on going, I’m so glad we did!

The Cure was amazing last night. I wasn’t the biggest fan before, but now… I was just blown away by their three hour set. Two more days of Ansan Valley Rock Festival. Here we go…

Camping and Jams at the Rainbow Music Festival

Nami Island is, without a doubt, one of my all-time favorite Korean attractions.  Sure, it's touristy, but with good reason.  The island's stunning scenery and artistic atmosphere make it an ideal destination for nature lovers and design enthusiasts alike.  Because Namiseom is a bit of a journey from Seoul, I'm not able to get out there as often as I'd like; so, when the Korea Tourism Organization offered me tickets to the island's annual music and camping festival, I jumped at the opportunity and figured it was the perfect excuse for making the two hour trip out to Chuncheon.

The Rainbow Island Music and Camping Festival was started in 2011 and past lineups have included international headliners like Jason Mraz, Christina Perri, and KT Tunstall.  In just two short years, the festival has gained a reputation for being one of the country's best outdoor celebrations of music.  One-day and three-day tickets are available for purchase each year.
In addition to promises of amazing music, the festival is one of the only weekends of the year when camping is allowed, as to preserve the island's ecosystem.  Festival-goers holding three-day tickets can opt to reserve camping spots, either by renting the festival's tents (which include sleeping bags, lanterns, and mats) or bring their own tents.  Both options include access to a number of showers.

Get your music on this summer in Seoul.

I’m all about the music. I am up for any concert, just ask. With only a few days left before I leave (tear tear), lately I’ve been reminicing about all I’ve managed to experience while teaching and living in Korea (Are you ready?). I am amazed at how much I have done in such a short amount of time, especially when I think about all the concerts I’ve attended. It seems like ages ago, but at this time last year I was preparing to witness Lady Gaga’s first and very controvercial world tour stop in Seoul.

Show! Music Core.


SHINee, Psy, 4minute, Teen Top, Davinci, Infinite, K.Will, 이하이, Girls day, Juniel, History, Geeks, ElectroBoys.

I’ll just leave this right here…

I’m going to dance to all this K-pop tomorrow! HELLO HELLO, mother father gentleman, 니가 할 말 알아 그 말만은 말아!
