The Hyundai Card Music Library, which contains more than 10,000 LPs and 3,000 music publications, is one of the best places to hear the least heard beats in the country. These are rare, inestimable rarities that illustrate the rich Korean musical history.
"The Korean music of the '60s and' 70s is heavily influenced by Western rock and soul, but also by traditional Korean folk music – as well as by textures," says Min Jun Park, director of the library.

Park – AKA DJ Soulscape – is also a music producer, a label owner, a music archive director and a well-known record store.
"Artists come to listen to rare vinyl," says Park. "I see a lot of art students come to inspire me, I try to make sure that people have a glimpse of the diversity of music, not just in styles but also in years. "
