Homoerotic Music Video: 4L's Move

This new music video by Four Ladies (4L) is quite homoerotic. When looking at the lyrics, though, it appears that any lesbian action is mean for the male gaze (Don't be shy boy)... sigh. Tons of articles have already discussed this video, feminism, and slut-shaming, so I don't feel the need to discuss it any further. I do recommend reading the heated comments on Youtube though. Enjoy this homoerotic and awkward debut by 4L.


Saint Patrick’s Day in Seoul, 2014

 

When you live in Korea long enough expecting public holidays from home to fall on their usual day or date becomes a waste of time. Really. Anyone American will be familiar with Thanksgiving falling on a Saturday, and even the Superbowl the night after. Irish, like myself, are now most familiar with a Saturday Saint Patrick’s Day, and yesterday was no different from other years (except for last year and the year before when Paddy’s Day actually fell on the weekend…which kind of ruins my point), the day of Ireland and it’s ‘ness was transformed from its early weekday schedule to a much more alcoholic friendly Saturday.

SOREA Band Live

Anybody who produces, performs, or loves Rap/Hip-Hop?

Hello everybody,
 

I am a California native vacationing out here in Busan, Korea. I love composing, performing listening to Rap/Hip-Hop music in English and Korean. I am wondering if there are anybody in the Busan area who share similar interests as me. I want to create a group or a meet where we can exchange or create music or just simply hang out. Feel free to reply here and contact me. Thanks!

Damn… It’s been a long time – apologies and all the usual garbage excuses about being busy. Let’s get into it.


Would you like to play any instruments on the stage ?

Bar is located at Bundang, near Miguem Station. On the stage, Rivers-9 Drum set, Fender Blues Jr tube amplifier and Ampeq bass guitar amplifier are prepared. 

Bring the guitars and join us.

See the Business Listings menu to get more information about this bar. 


Ulsan World Music Fest

Now I know this isn’t technically a Busan event… but it’s close enough and the amount of overseas talent onstage is alarming. There will be folk music from all corners of the world, reggae, disco, hip-hop, jazz. Sometimes, the absence of outside culture here gets to me and I yearn for something different to stretch my brain around. This festival seems designed to do just that.


Lesbian(?) Music Video: 골라봐 (Take Your Pick) Translation

This video is a bit old, but I just discovered it. The group Ten (텐) Wreleased 골라봐 back in 2009. Two women are sexually assaulted on the subway (probably line 2) and proceed to comfort one another (eventually physically). This video came out right before I moved to Korea for the first time, but I hadn't heard of it till 2013. Does anyone know what the reaction was like in Korea?


Watching the video you would think "Hey, those ladies love ladies". Then you take a look at the lyrics.
