By Giacomo Lee. Read the dark side to Seoul city in his novel Funereal, out now on Amazon UK & US.
History repeats. When Daft Punk released Discovery in 2001, initial copies came with a cool credit card that allowed access to exclusive tracks on the group’s homepage. 12 years later, and I stumbled across this in Seoul at the weekend:
It’s a copy of the new Daft Punk album Random Access Memories, with a free collectible transport card adorned with the album cover. The T-money ‘Pop Card’ can also be used for phone calls, but I’ll just be using mine to travel around on the trains and buses of Seoul. Find yours at any Hot Tracks record stores around Seoul – I know of the ones at Gwanghamun and Gangnam. I saw copies of The 20/20 Experience by Justin Timberlake with their own Pop Cards as well.
