In the 1990s, Incheon experienced a period of economic, cultural, and educational growth centered on the area known as Dongincheon. This area became a hub for heavy metal and rock bands, music listening rooms, and concert halls. Over time, these facilities moved to the basements of Gwangyo-dong, where numerous Korean heavy metal and rock bands gathered and flourished.


There was a time when ports and industrial complexes were not all about Incheon. There was a time when Incheon was called LA in Korea. I wanted to tell the story of the 1990s when heavy metal had its golden days in Korea.
