B-Sides: Crying Nut (Interview)


With six critically-acclaimed bestselling albums, Crying Nut has become the walking success story for Korean rock. Introducing a new genre of punk with Korean sensibilities, dubbed Chosun punk, they’ve become Korea’s most famous and best-selling indie band. Though they’ve been making music for over 15 years now, Crying Nut admits that their journey towards worldwide recognition has just begun. In the midst of their North American tour with fellow Seoulsonic 2K12 bands 3rd Line Butterfly and Yellow Monsters, Crying Nut takes a moment to talk about their travels on tour, their fans at home and abroad, and their take on today’s indie scene in Korea.
