Stacked Vinyls of Memory Music
Gopchang Jeongol is a retro bar in Seoul's hip Hongdae neighborhood that turns a smooth blend of retro classics. Record lined walls consume some of the space, while vintage stereo equipment claims the rest. Pleasing to the eye and ear, one can walk down memory lane or appreciate a period of time never lived by current day hipsters.
A classic spin of what k-pop was like in the 60's and 70's for the once young scene. Korean ballads played by late-night taxi drivers are contained and preserved in one spot. This underground treasure draws in a local crowd conversing over drinks and simple bar food.
