November is looking to be a great month for live music and art shows in Seoul and this week is no exception. Here’re some of our highlights.
SuperColourSuper have outdone themselves this time – they’re bringing acclaimed artist Joan Cornellà to Korea. The Spanish artist is world famous for his menacingly dark and scathingly funny artwork. The launch for the event is this Friday (though SuperColourSuper are running a competition for early access).
The artist himself will be making appearences throughout the week, signing copies of his new book Zonzo.

Joan Cornella isn’t the only well-loved artist coming to Korea this week! Estionian performance collective Non Grata will be hosting a night in Seoul this week. The incredibly prolific art group will be appearing at the Roh Rang gallery.
