I’m going to let my personal bias get in the way – go to the indie clubs in Hongdae. Hongdae is the birthplace and capital of Korean indie music, and you’ll be able to find all the local bands playing there. All mainstream indie acts started there, and who knows, you may find the next big band to come out of Hongdae! You can always say, ‘I saw them first before they made it big’.
Here are some good clubs to go to:
 
Club Bbang – This legendary club was at the forefront of the birth of Korean indie in the 90s. It’s a small tiny club, very old, and very very local. Very legendary. The owner of this place is like a father figure for the entire indie scene.

Club A.O.R. – A little modern than Club Bbang, it’s a spot that has a really great sound system, probably the best in all of Hongdae clubs. Also the bands that play here are absolutely amazing, if you want high quality indie music definitely go to this place. (My band PIRA sometimes plays here too!)
