It’s all about live music this weekend, as well as a sneaky bit of film and a burlesque show.
Lady Gaga’s ‘Born This Way’ Ball
There was a small army of Christian ajummas running riot last week with banners slaying Lady Gaga for “spreading unhealthy sexual culture”. The eccentric singer seems to set the flames on fire wherever she goes, with Seoul being no different. Dealko Seoul have some tickets still available and will make things easier for you with purchasing. See the event page for more info and to be kept informed about international concerts coming up remember to take a look at our Big Gigs post.

Korea is not the easiest place to live in if you are gay, lesbian, transgender or anyone set aside from the Korean sense of the word ‘norm’. It finally seems like this has been noticed and there’s a party this week for the aforementioned and their allies at Club Myoung Wol Gwan in Hongdae. Plus it includes a burlesque show and midnight face painting(!)
