Seoul welcomes the new club teller that's starting strong with its grand opening on Saturday, October 21.
teller finds itself in the same space as the iconic ‘Livin’’, which opened in 2018 and was a staple in the Korean underground circuit before closing its doors late last year. When Livin’ closed, club residents kimmtae and Kibum decided to take over and form teller.
The new venue has a number of the key players behind the Korean staple festival The Air House pulling the strings, such as Kibum, Park Min-gyu and Yoon Seung-won.
Kitted out with world-class Funktion-Ones, the space also boasts studio-quality soundproofing and decor.

teller’s vision is to increase the overall growth and sustainability of the local underground house and techno music industry. There are also talks about opening a vinyl-only label and big plans for supporting other local brands.
The grand opening event on Saturday will see the likes of Mihak, Ten and Leesangsoon all performing. They’re also opening up on Friday ahead of the grand opening but with an undisclosed line-up.
