When South Korea meets London
Multi-talented Nam Tae-Hyun has taken over South Korea (his home) with roles in music, TV, film and radio – but now looks towards global domination. Influenced by the experimental nature of English music and fashion, Tae-Hyun feels at home in London and wishes he could perform here more often. Previous to performing in Camden with his band South Club, PAUSE met with Nam Tae-Hyun to discuss how British culture inspires him, his partnership with Adidas and touring around the world.
Welcome to the UK! What is your favourite thing about being in London?
You are known for your bold fashion choices. What do you think of London’s fashion scene?
My fashion style is inspired by England.
Your band ‘South Club’ is performing in Camden during your visit. Are there any British artists that have influenced your music?
I’m not exaggerating when I say that almost all of the artists and music which influence me the most are from England. Not only the big bands like the Rolling Stones, Oasis, Sex Pistols etc. but also the underground groups.
Is your tour wardrobe planned out or do you decide what to wear to each gig on the day?
I shop during the tour and decide spontaneously.
What are other musicians killing the fashion game for you right now?
Currently, The 1975’s Matthew Healy’s style is impressive.
Where do you see yourself and ‘South Club’ this time next year?
I hope to have the chance to do a lot more performances in Europe.
