Say Sue Me are a Surf inspired Indie-Rock/Pop act from Busan, South Korea and cited as one of 2018’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.
