Intrigued by the sheet music and scores on exhibit at the National Hangeul Museum in Seoul.
It’s been a while since I last checked out the busking scene in Hongdae, so I decided to make a trip there yesterday.
As usual, it was bustling with different groups of buskers singing, dancing, rapping or performing magic tricks. Compared to the last time I was there, there was something I wish I would see more of.
I took the opportunity to do a little sightseeing when I was in Daegu to catch Musical PHANTOM.
Not knowing where to go, I did one of the recommended tour courses and ended up at the Kim Gwang-seok Street (or 김광석 다시 그리기 길). It turned out to be the highlight of my trip, apart from catching Park Hyo Shin’s performance.
If there’s no opportunity to catch Park Hyo Shin in concert, the next best thing would probably be to attend his musical. Even then, there’s no guarantee of getting tickets on days when he’s in the cast.
I had wanted to catch Musical PHANTOM in Seoul, but the tickets for days when Park Hyo Shin was performing were sold out. Turned out, the musical later toured other cities and I went for the Daegu stop.
The reason I’ve not updated this blog for a while is partly because I don’t have my guitar with me – I am and will be in South Korea for a short while.
Although I’m here in South Korea, I was not expecting to attend a Guckkasten concert since I thought they will probably start doing more gigs only during summer when the rock festivals kick in.
When I arrived a few weeks back, I found out that they will be holding a concert next weekend on 19 March in Seoul. I was too late. The concert is sold out.
It will make my day if I can be at the concert. If anyone has a ticket to let go, please contact me.
