5 events happening this weekend in Seoul that we think look cool - November, Week 3.

We're back once again with our weekly run down of the five Seoul events happening this weekend that we think stand out. As always, there's an embarrassment of riches in terms of events in this city and we've delved through the long lists of things going on and narrowed it down to 5.

 

Thursday

Electric Cinema 

The great team behind Crazy Multiply return this weekend with one of their regular Electric Cinema nights.

This will be their tenth instalment of the of EC and they’re showing Jennifer Livingstone’s 1990s documentary Paris is Burning. This movie expertly captures the final days of the “Golden Age” of New York’s drag ball culture. It’s a potent and excellently crafted celebration of the New York LGBTQ community and their emergence in popular culture.

As well as the screening, there’ll be drinks and discussion afterwards.

Thursday November 16th, 7.30pm, MiniPrint Seoul. Free entry.

College (live)

French electronic producer David Grellier will be bringing one of his awesome projects to Seoul this weekend - College.

College are perhaps best known for their inclusion on the soundtrack of 2011’s Drive. Yet, there’s much more to this band than A Real Hero. Their recent album Shanghai flirts with similar levels of accessibility but is an all-round more experimental release. The album sees the band move away from their staple 80s-inspired sound and into a broader soundscapes. It’s a bold, challenging and beautiful record.

Grellier is also part of several other awesome bands including electroclash outfit Sexi Sushi.

Thursday November 16th, 10pm, Cakeshop Seoul. W20k

Friday

Live Graffiti

Korean graffiti star LEODAV will be in Seoul this weekend doing a live painting. The notorious street-artist has been making waves internationally with his irreverent and aesthetically rich visuals. This is a great chance for both fans of his and for those curious about how the work of street-artists is produced to see it happening in real time.

On top of the live drawing there’ll be a unique chance to create your own graffiti in the virtual world. There’ll be on-site VR headsets set up for you to use for trying your hand at street-art.
