August is relatively quiet in London, though K-pop fans will be able to enjoy Odd Eye Circle and W24 in London – tickets still available at time of writing. This is the calm before the storm: September has at least eight live pop and indie events.

Outside of London, if you’ve managed to secure yourself some reasonably-priced accommodation in Edinburgh, you’re well set. Highlight of the festival is undoubtedly the National Changgeuk Company’s Trojan Women.

  • As far as we know, it’s a quiet month for new publications. The only one we’re aware of is Han Jimin’s The Apology. But, in case you missed it (we tripped over them on Twitter on the day of their publication – they came out of the blue), Strangers Press has just released eight new short story chapbooks.

Let me know what books or events I’ve missed.

Finally, Koreans may want to contribute to the national pavilion at the 2024 Venice Biennale by submitting their scent memories to the curators of Koo Jeong A’s Odorama Cities by 7 August.
