Say Sue Me are a Surf inspired Indie-Rock/Pop act from Busan, South Korea and cited as one of 2019’s ‘break-out bands’.
Childhood friends Jaeyoung Ha (Bass) and Byungkyu Kim (guitar) met drummer Semin Kang and played in bands together since winter of 2012, when they met Sumi Choi at a tea shop in Nampo-dong.
They liked her speaking voice and immediately offered her a spot as the vocalist in a new band that would become Say Sue Me. Sumi turned out to be a natural at songwriting. Semin sadly suffered trauma from a fall. New drummer Changwon Kim stands in while they await Semin’s recovery.
Following showcases at SXSW in 2018, the band released their sophomore album Where We Were Together and a RSD covers EP which won praise from Pitchfork, NPR, Billboard, The Independent, Stereogum, Paste, MTV, Fader and more.
Three tracks were playlisted on BBC 6Music three times where Lauren Laverne, Tom Ravenscroft, Gideon Coe and Don Letts have championed the band as well as Elton John on Beats1 and KEXP.
The band toured the Europe twice in 2018 and count Yo La Tengo, Japanese Breakfast, Snail Mail, The Coathangers, The Ravonettes and Speedy Ortiz as fans.
