"Recently I came to realize that I was part of the Korean popular music scene. Where I work, there is the public and I think about what I’m going to share with them. “bahngbek” started by exploring our mindset, attitude, approach towards creating popular music for the public."
In this journey we follows two artists Bek Hyunjin (44) and Bang Junsuk (46). They are the members of "bahngbek" music group. They are both established artists in Seoul, Korea.
