Seoul, South Korea – the place of plastic faces, great food, and company manufactured entertainment. You know I—What? You don’t think the food is great? No? Oh. That part about the plastic faces and manufactured entertainment has your panties in a twist. Sorry if you can’t handle the truth kiddo, but in order to ease your mind a bit maybe I should explain just where I’m coming from.
You see – I’ve been there. Ever heard of Epika Entertainment? You know, Korea’s number one entertainment company; the place where stars are born. Blegh. Give me a break. I trained there for two years, two whole years and I got nowhere. Now before you bring up some stupid argument like “you weren’t good enough” or “other idols train for a lot longer before debuting” let me tell you one thing: I didn’t leave because I wasn’t good enough. I left because I was sick of the bureaucracy of it all. The artists you see parading around on stage and TV are byproducts of a company. There is no realism to them. They rarely write their own songs or determine their own image. They have no control over their lives. Oh, and don’t get me started on looks. Those without pretty faces are either forced to correct them or face expulsion from the company.
Now, granted, Epika was a lot more lax than most companies in certain areas, but the cookie-cutter mainstream manufacturing of artists is something most companies have to adhere to in order to gain any sort of popularity. Epika was no exception. But you didn’t come here to hear me talk about Epika, right? You came because you’re curious about the other side of it all – the dark gritty side of Seoul’s music scene. Well, I can tell you one thing for sure. If you’re looking for realism, and honest love for a craft, then you’ve come to the right place. The kids here are dedicated to their own style of music, a style and flare they refuse to allow anyone else to control. The music here is raw, untouched by the mainstream agenda.
Unfortunately, you have to dig deep to find the good stuff, and the deeper you dig, the dirtier you’ll become. To get involved in the underground scene in Seoul is to get involved in the struggle for music independence, and the violent struggle for underground dominance - both inside and outside of the performance ring. Drugs, gangs, prostitution – they’re part of every night here kid, and if you can’t handle yourself properly, you might just end up in a ditch somewhere. But hey, at least the music is good.
So, kid. Scared yet? Yeah? Well, get over it quickly and follow me. I've got a few people I'd like to introduce you to.
