The headline says it all. Jaurim, Jang Hyejin, Vibe and Kim Johan – Four acts from Korea’s hit survival-singing reality show are headed for a one-night concert in Los Angeles on March 9th, 2012.
The concert is apparently to celebrate the opening of a new Los Angeles-area Korean-language radio station, Radio K 1230 AM.
I will remind you these artists coming to the U.S. does not happen often, let alone outside of Korea. But I won’t bother with explanations on who they are or their music — you all probably know how big of a deal they are, plus Indieful ROK has excellent episode commentaries of the reality singing show, and do check KoreanIndie.com for all your K-Indie/K-Rock news.
Below, I’ve translated much of the ticket ordering information from Korean.
NOTE: going to check if phone orders or in-person purchase without online ordering is possible. (2/23 12pm)
I’ll try to keep this page updated with any new info in English on the tickets and changes in the ordering situation. If you have any questions or suggestions on this info page or the concert, comment below or better yet, hit me up on twitter: clumproll, and I will try to find out, thanks.
(I myself may have scheduling conflicts :sadface: so please go and rock out on my behalf!)
Good luck, enjoy the show, and tell your friends – a chance like this doesn’t happen often!

► How to Purchase tickets online ◄
Tickets range from $50 (far Balcony) to $150 (Main Floor AAA).
The official and only site for ticket purchasing is this page on hotdeal.koreadaily.com, which is operated by the US-based newspaper, Korea Daily.
To buy online tickets or even check what seats are available, you must first register for the koreadaily.com site: You can do that here: Registration
Google Translate works pretty well for the input form, but you are required to input at least one address, phone and email, as well as your country of residence/citizenship. (The site is intended for the immigrant and Korean community so this is expected.)
Select a ticket price class and after a search in that zone, a seating map will show the your row and seat.
If you want contiguous seats for your friends, it’s recommended to do so in a single search.
Here are seat maps on the slightly faster Twitpic with price indicators since the Korean website is slower to load the full size.

Reroll is a new category of posts from the past, that I’ve done for a small number of other outlets besides clumproll.com. They are reposted here not because they are exemplary instances of my writing ability, but rather to serve as a simple log or archive of my past efforts, especially with those outlets being difficult to find online any more.
This particular post was originally for The Korea Society Film Blog when it was still around. I had seen the film during the original theatricalrun while in Korea, shortly before the time of writing this in July of 2009.
For those interested, the film Mother recently(July 2010) became available in the U.S. on DVD, Blu-ray and streaming video via Magnolia Pictures.
When Bong Joon-ho announced his fourth film after the record-breaking hit The Host would be a murder mystery about a mother and her wrongly accused son, I was one of many worried about it being a retread of his masterful second film, Memories of Murder. Would Bong be able to replicate the tight pacing and cinematic completeness he had with that film once more?
As it stands, his latest Mother is thankfully not a retread in the slightest. Its lead is obviously a woman – not a young face, but a veteran actress with wrinkles and a compelling presence throughout. In the titular role, Kim Hye-ja is up against circumstantial evidence, impatient police, a self-important lawyer, and unbelieving townsfolk. This mother descends into the dilemma of clearing the murder charge on her only son. I call it a descent because she goes down a long, dark rabbit hole full of questions to face the unfortunate souls that may have answers to the real murderer of the high school girl that her son is alleged to have killed. Each newly uncovered piece of evidence and person of interest needs more than a few rounds of vetting, and the turns made are fast and always unexpected. Read the rest of this entry »
Surprised, and not so much, at how much time has passed. And it makes it even clearer to me that I need to make some changes around here for this to be feasible and sustainable.
Anyway, hope I don’t disappear on myself.
Note to self: write!
After 20 years on television and still going, Fox’s The Simpsons is now the first and only show to be featured on a stampset while still in primetime production.
On May 7, 2009, the United States Postal Service will release 5 stamps featuring Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa and Maggie Simpson nationwide. Matt Groening created the original artwork for the stamps and will present them at a First-Day-of-Issue ceremony in Los Angeles on that day. Stamp collectors and fans can pre-order the stamps right now from the USPS website for home delivery.
