nuevo tango coreano

고상지 (Koh Sang-ji) is quite a character, at least from this 10 Asia interview. She dropped out of KAIST and studied the bandoneón in Japan and Argentina. She was recently in the media spotlight because of her participation in Jung Jae-hyung and Jung Hyung-don’s track for the show 무한도전 (Infinity Challenge).

콘(KoN) refers to himself as a “Nuevo Gypsy Violinist.” In addition to his violin performances he has been appearing on stage in musicals.

La Ventana are labelmates of Eniac, covered previously on this blog.

All the performances below are from EstheroKr‘s YouTube channel.

POE (포)

I’ve been watching KBS’s Top Band, a reality competition show for bands. One band that caught my attention was Poe. It turns out they already have an EP and also appeared on EBS’s “Hello Rookie” series, so they are not quite as amateur as some of the other contestants – but hey, Broken Valentine is allowed to compete on the show. The Top Band appearance has given Poe wider exposure than their EBS or Pentaport Rock Festival appearances. There is continuing concern by the judges and coaches on the show about their “popular appeal,” but nobody denies their musical talent.

Personally I prefer the band’s look during their Hello Rookie appearance than the current one on Top Band. The band also appears more confident in their 2010 Hello Rookie performances than they have been on Top Band so far. I wonder if this is due to the change in drummers. Their Top Band coach kept critiquing their drummer in this week’s episode, although he was sympathetic about it.
