If you’re planning a BTS-themed vacation after the pandemic ends, there’s a new place to add to your list!
On September 21, BTS guested on NPR Music‘s “Tiny Desk” for a cozy, virtual concert. They sang “Dynamite”, “Save Me”, and “Spring Day” in a record store that some viewers mistook for a set.
Although this “set” looks like it was custom-made for BTS’s disco-pop single, it’s a real store that’s open for business in Seoul’s Itaewon district.
South Korea’s leading credit card issuer, Hyundai Card, opened Vinyl & Plastic in 2016 to meet the booming demand for vinyl records and provide a relaxing space for people to enjoy music and coffee in.
Tucked into one corner, you’ll find a retro coffee bar to sip your drink of choice at while surrounded by artistic graffiti and the sounds of music’s greatest artists.
Listen to used records while admiring rare ones framed on the walls…
…or check out the display of classic turntables that will transport you to the golden age of analog.
Don’t worry though. If CDs are more your thing, there are plenty to choose from too!
Vinyl & Plastic is a music lover’s dream come true!
