Joining us on this week's I'm LIVE are four guys performing under the slogan of “chaotic world, warm music” - it's Nerd Connection!
This band is composed of four graduates of Yonsei University, one of the most prestigious universities in Korea. The beginning was almost accidental - Vocalist Seo Yeong-ju and guitarist Choi Seung-won began performing together in 2012 as part of the university’s rock band club Medusa. Then bassist Park Jae-hyun and drummer Shin Yeon-tae joined the band, and they made their step into the professional music scene with their first single "Hymn of the Birds" in 2018. The same year they took part in the Emergenza Festival, the world's largest festival for unsigned bands. After several regional qualifiers in Korea, they passed the Korean qualification, which led to the finals at a festival in Germany. With that unbelievable milestone at the very beginning stages of their career, the four have pleasantly surprised listeners both at home and abroad until now.
In October this year, Nerd Connection released their first full-length album. All 12 songs in the album are tied under the concept of "nostalgia for things gone by," touching listeners in their unique way.
In this episode, the quartet performs "21st Century Kingdom," " Hollywood Movie Star," "Waterfall," "Bamboo Forest," and "Good Night Good Dream."
Tune in to I'm LIVE and meet the four highly talented musicians!
