I'm LIVE Ep.49 Se So Neon
Joining us on this week's I'm LIVE is the one of the hottest rock acts in the Korean indie scene – Se So Neon! Comprised of vocalist and guitarist Hwang So-yoon, bassist Moon Fancy, and drummer Kang To, the trio made themselves known with their signature musical style that combines rock, blues, and synth pop.
The band was named after a children's magazine published from 1960's to 1980's, meaning "new youth" or "flying bird" in Korean, epitomizing the young trio's desire to freely explore all genres of music. Thanks to Hwang So-yoon's androgynous vocals and rhythmical guitar riffs, Moon Fancy's fluid bass lines and Kang To's unique drumming style, the three quickly solidified a stable fan base in indie circles even before their official debut. After performing together for a year, they released their first EP, "Summer Plumage," in 2017 with Kim Han-joo from Silica Gel as the producer. Full of potential and energy, the trio is diversifying Korean music while nourishing everyone's soul at the same time.
Tune in to I'm LIVE this week and feel their explosive, youthful energy!
