K.O.A. Zine has been updated with yet another very interesting interview, including some Korean indie music history. This time the interview subject is 3rd Line Butterfly‘s Sung Kiwan: Sung Kiwan: Renaissance Man of Hongdae

    ah, I always wonder how people find that english translated 10Asia stuff, I always just find the korean ones orz

    P-vine Records twittered about dates. 11/3 album 별없이 산다 release and 11/23 performance in Japan. just don’t know how reliable that info is.

    I just wonder if Joong Yub goes to Japan, will ‘Oh Ji Eun and wolves’ stop for a moment? but maybe he’ll manage to do both >_>?
