My spies tell me that this Friday night (19 Jan) is a good time to be in Hongdae. Go to up to 10 live music clubs and it only costs you 15,000 Won for the lot, as part of the SoundDay event, which isn’t bad value.
But for a pretty un-hip Brit who doesn’t speak the language and has spent the grand total of 3 days in Seoul, the prospect of navigating the trendy Hongik club scene is pretty daunting.
So is there a Seoulite out there who wouldn’t mind guiding a hapless foreigner round the music venues this Friday? I’ll even buy you a beer or two. One stipulation: the tour has to include Oh Brothers at Drug.
