Discover Sokcho: Record Your Own Tracks At This Studio Noraebang
One thing Koreans love is an opportunity to unwind by spending an hour or two in a noraebang with their friends. In most cities, there’s at least one noraebang – Korean for ‘singing room’ – on every block, and with many opened 24 hours, it’s not unheard of for young people to pull an all-nighter singing songs with their friends.
It should be no surprise, then, that the latest noraebang hit is Sokcho’s MateMBox, a luxury noraebang that gives visitors a chance to record themselves singing their favorite noraebang songs.
And MateMBox is no joke. Each room is decorated to look like a legitimate recording studio, complete with professional grade performance equipment used be real recording artists like studio microphones, noise-cancelling headphones, and a camera so that you can even record video while you perform.
The whole procedure is controlled by a special mobile application, which not only works as a remote control when you’re in the studio, but is connected to an online community of people who’ve visited MateMBox before.
Using the app, you can not only upload your music or video to the community message boards, but it even allows you to share what you’ve recorded with friends directly on your social media accounts or via text message.
Check out more about the MateMBox application on the Google Play store.
So if you’ve got some talent (or, really, you just like to sing), make sure to add Sokcho’s MateMBox to your Korea travel destination list. It’s definitely a unique souvenir to take home!
