With the unassuming and soft-spoken persona the band carries off-stage, you’d be surprised at the presence they exude when they perform. HYUKOH, a South-Korean indie band consisting of Oh Hyuk, Lim Hyun Jae, Lee In Woo and Im Dong Gun, is in the centre of South Korea’s indie rock scene.
Although fame was never the band’s main objective, their relatable lyrics and soothing sound captured the country’s attention. Before their tracks broke through Korea’s music charts, claiming the top spot from pop favourites like Big Bang, HYUKOH was a a regular fixture in Hongdae, the Mecca of Seoul’s indie music scene.
HYUKOH returned to Malaysia on 20 February and performed a sold out show at KL Live.
Team CLEO met up with HYUKOH hours before their sold out show to talk about inspirations, finding meaning in life and returning to KL.
