This week on Chincha we’ve been behind the scenes on an indie film in South Korea, checked out 10 of the country’s weirdest tourist attractions (penis park trip, anyone?), and published a gorgeous photoessay of some of Seoul’s sexiest walls and doors. We also partied at Social Underground and updated our Seoul Events 2013 post with a couple more international gigs. In short, we’ve been busy and now we want you guys to be.

Rou Set at Cakeshop

One of our favourite Seoul DJs Rou Set, who we recently interviewed for our Shot of Soju series, is taking over. For anyone that’s into garage and grime head to the Itaewon club this Fri for a feature-length beats and bass session that’s likely to be awesome judging from past performances. And the fact that he’s promised to play the song below which is a TUNE.

Linus’ BBQ Pop-up 

There’s another BBQ pop-up going on this weekend, but this time with a twist: chicken is now on the menu and it comes with white bbq sauce, which we’re very curious to try out. The event is at Hannam-dong cafe Ways of Seeing and even if you don’t plan on attending, just for Linus’ depraved sexual and food-related humour :)
