Usadan-ro in Itaewon is what we’ve now come to know as a very “Gram-able” spot, perfect for our social media obsessed generation. I tend to stay away from places like there, where couples come to take photos and show off their dates filled with hashtags. Mostly, this is because I’m ultimately disappointed by these destinations, but also I like to find more genuine and original spots. So, when I came to Om Records, which is located in the heart of Usadan-ro, I was really surprised by how natural it felt. More than a hipster destination, it feels like a neighborhood meeting place where locals enjoy music while relaxing on the soft, weathered sofas. You can feel the cool oozing out of the walls. Taking a look around the space, you can see people enjoying soft City Pop tunes and I naturally melted into this background, actually I layed limplessly on a sofa!. The interior is decorated with cassette tapes and old TV’s hooked up to VHS players. It reminded me of my childhood days when I would watch the anime series ‘Wedding Peach’ on repeat. Om Records is a spot that really brings one back to a soft spot in their mind and where you can get lost in time.
