Exactly 3 years ago, I re-created this homepage after my journey to Seoul. Since that time, many things happened.
How everything started
Around the end of 90s/ begin of 00s, a mass of Japanese Animes aired on TV in Germany, which created the first interest. With the beginning of YouTube and MySpace, the internet made it possible around 2005 to listen international music. It was also the beginning of finding the first Japanese Rock bands online. This brought me in 2006 to the first concert in cologne, Germany.
During the following years, the weekends were filled by visiting Japanese Rock & Metal concerts, who were very popular in this time. Year after year, it was
also possible to discover online tunes from Korean, Taiwanese and Thai music.
2010, and suddenly blogspot appeared! It was the first era of blogging! During that time, there was already the website name "Discomfort Wings" (song lyric part of my first concert's band). After 2-3 years, the focus changed for personal reasons, but music was always present. After visiting Tokyo/ Japan in 2014, I booked a flight for April 2019 to Seoul/ South Korea ...
After Japan, there was the aim to visit the other countries, which I've been interested the last years. Because of the past year's situation, it wasn't yet
During the vocation, it was a great experience to discover so many underground bands! It was also the kindness of the people, who is still in my mind. After seeing and listening to all these influences, it was the start and motivation of re-creating the blog. First at blogspot, later here on the page you see today.
This vocation got me so much good energy and vibes until today, that I directly visited the country again in October/ November 2019. During this time, there was again a concert of the Korean band Lustrouble! :)
Finding you bands
Over the next months of end 2019/ 2020, the network grown up international to all parts of the world. From South Korea, Japan or Taiwan, Australia, European countries, such as North/ Central/South America and (South) Africa!
