 5.Eventually , you two  left Jeonju and moved to Seoul .  Was it hard to  make your way  among the other  indie bands ?

 We love Jeonju  .  We miss our city.Jeonju is a little city , where we tried tov hold gigs every weekend.  We ‘d take our equipment to square,park,etc. We tried playing with other bands and artists sometimes . It was not bad at all . We used to have so much fun, but we didn’t keep up with it .We wanted more gigs . We wanted see the performances of many another musicians.
