I’m in Seoul, South Korea.
I wanted to visit a friend who I haven’t seen in awhile and check out a new country while I’m at it. I didn’t know what to expect from the city except that a lot of english teaching foreigners live here and that it’s an electronics and cheap car giant (Samsung, LG, Hyundai/KIA).
4 days in I realize it’s much like any other big city with its own unique flavour. Everyone isn’t conservative as per the general stereotype I’ve been fed, 80 percent of people smoke, and you can get by on your own without knowing the language.
On Friday, we went to this club and I was curious about the music. The DJ’s were playing mixes of Daft Punk, indie electro, and other music you’d catch in a dance type club in a large US/Can city club. I wasn’t hearing any K-pop or other local only style music on the airwaves. Well I might have – I had my fair share of alcohol and don’t remember all the details.
Anyways, we all know the world is getting smaller and more connected to each other because of the fantastic contraption known as the internet. It just hits you when you’re actually in another country across the world. As an artist, I think it’s important to realize the potential fans you could make in countries you wouldn’t even think of normally. Thanks to the internet, you also don’t need a massive budget or already be a superstar to connect with them.
