What you'll do

This experience will change the way you view Hongdae, a hip and vibrant neighborhood in Seoul. You will follow my daily routine as a musician and I will explain why the Hongdae area is an important place for musicians like me. I will take you to the hidden places that have played a role in the history of Korea's indie scene. Throughout our visit, you'll be able to imagine how musicians start and develop their careers. We'll stop by my favorite coffee shop and afterwards, we'll visit my studio to take a closer look at the life of musician. You may look through the picture books that have influenced me as a composer. You can also try whatever instrument you like—piano, guitar, ukulele, or any of the percussions. If you haven't played any of them before, I'll help you. I can also recommend Korean indie music songs you may like. Lastly, I'll sing my songs just for you and share the stories around them. It will be very special to enjoy an up-close, live performance without a microphone.
Other things to note
I'd like to treat you to my favorite coffee so if you're bothered by too much caffeine, don't drink any in advance. Don't worry if you aren't good at playing a musical instrument—it's just for fun.

I am a singer-songwriter and I was a member of Joaband, a Korean indie band. Over the last 10 years, we have released three albums and more than 80 songs. If you search for my name or my band on the YouTube, you will find out what style of musician I am.

Since 2018, I have been the host of a music program called "Concert Culture Warehouse—콘서트문화창고" on KBS in Daegu. I introduced many musicians to people through this program. My experience will help to satisfy your curiosity about the Korean music scene. I am so excited to share my passion for music with you.

This was my first Airbnb experience (and first activity in Korea!) and I could not have had a better time with Zozno! Zozno's tour was so interesting and personal. His tour was such a unique and fun experience to be able to see what being a musician is like in Hongdae. I would 110% recommend this tour to anyone visiting Korea, not just people interested in music!!

서울에 살면서도 알지 못했던 홍대의 다른 모습을 볼 수 있어서 너무 좋았어요. 옛날 생각도 새록새록 나고ㅎㅎ 따뜻한 커피와 공연도 너무 인상 깊어서 집에 오는길에 음원 계속 들었네요. 감사합니다^^

This was such an intimate and special experience. It was so heartfelt and a deep moment. Definitely more than I expected. Zozno is great and knows his stuff. These are things I wouldn’t have found otherwise. Thank you very much, Zozno, for making this trip extra special!

Merveilleuse expérience. Zozno nous a fait découvrir le quartier de Hongdae à travers son expérience. Il était charmant et passionnant. Nous n'aurions jamais pu découvrir tous ces lieux sans lui. Grâce à lui nous avons pu assister à un concert le soir et avons découvert de nouveaux talents. Sans aucun doute ma meilleure expérience dans ce voyage en Corée.

A big music lover, I saw this experience as a great way to explore my new neighborhood and discover all the music "gems" I knew were awaiting me (the vibrant music scene is why I picked Hongdae as a place to settle in Seoul). Zozno, a seasoned musician himself, is a neighborhood local and shared his special insight into the diverse, history-rich, hyper-local music scene in Hongdae. The tour ends at his studio with a very intimate experience of him sharing his own story of his musical journey. We had a tiny, impromptu "jam" session, then were able to hear Zozno himself perform a few of his songs and the stories behind them. He also made it a point to give me some tailored recommendations at the end of the tour based on my interests. If you are a music fiend, love stories behind the music, or want something unique to do while in Seoul, I recommend this tour.
