Messiahwaits - 樂浪Parlour
from Seoul, South Korea

In the 1930s, Korea’s Da-bang and coffee shop were a place we often called Utopia within a city. The more depressing the reality they were facing, the more people were coming there to look for an Utopia. The places were acting as a cultural venue to exhibit ones’ artwork where not only writers, painters, and artists but also ‘modern boy’ and ‘modern girl’ were mingled. Everyday they were drinking a coffee, smoking a cigarette, and talking to each other while listening records at the coffee shop called 'Nakrang Parlour'.

1930년대 우리나라 근대의 다방과 카페는 도시의 환상 공간이었다. 때론 다방과 카페는 별천지의 유토피아의 공간이었으며, 현실이 괴로울수록 빠져드는 환상이기도 했다. 한편 다방과 까페는 문인, 화가, 예술가 등이 교유하는 장소이자 ‘모던 뽀이’, ‘모던 걸’ 들의 집합소였으며 미술전람회가 개최되는 등 문화 활동의 장이 되기도 했다. 그들은 하루가 멀다 하고 끽다점 '낙랑파라' 에 들러 가배차 (茶·커피) 를 마시고, 담배를 피우고, 이야기를 나누고, 레코드를 들었다.
