excellent Korean Psychedelic Rock
one of the less i know,
the other would be
Shin Joong Hyun & The Men who where earlier(around 72?)
but personally i like San Ul Lim/San Ul Rim more
they have a garage psych sound,while they claim that they had never heard had listened to Garage Rock and Punk Music their first record(wich i don't have) sold five hundred thousands copies in the week they released it
5 months later they recorded their second album
they found their musical style on this album they added organ on this album(played by their sister)
all tracks are tagged with the Korean titles
a text file with English titles is available

No review available,so some here a short biography
San Ul Rim are the most famous hobby band (“naughty rock band) in South-Korea.
Most Korean rock specialists say that San Ul Rim's music is not connected with previous Korean rock groups.

One day they just appeared on the Korean rock scene. They are brothers, Kim Chang Wan is the group leader (Lead vocals and guitar) and eldest brother, Kim Chang Hun is the second eldest, a bass guitar player, youngest bother is a Kim Chang Ik and he is a drummer.
They were born out of a rich family in Seoul. Thanks to that they could buy the necessary rock instruments. At first Kim Chang Wan bought an acoustic guitar and Classical guitar guide book’ when he was a university freshman.

Thanks to that the other brothers could learn the guitar. Their parents said that they were going to buy a piano as an entrance gift, if Chang Hun entered the university. But did not didn'’t like it because it was too feminine. And they asked to their parents to give me a set of rock band musical instruments instead. Therefore they could get a drum set, two amps, and two guitars. After that they often played their own rock songs weekly. I believe they just enjoyed the brother gem for about four years!!
In 1977 there was held the first University student song contest. They were interested in the contest and joined in the preliminary hearing of it and their song came to the first class in the preliminary hearing but fell off at the main contest because Kim Chang Wan graduated at the time. Although they fell off at the main contest, they discovered their self confidence.
Before they participated in the contest, their band name was A Mu-Lee (meaning that “Be not different).

The band name San Ul Rim (means That Mountain echo) was made by Kim Chang Wan, impromptu, when their first album was released.
Especially the most important thing is that not only Korean music fans but also Korean music mania outside Korea had been wildly excited by their music

@Dirk: Have you ever heard "Song Gol Meh"? A serious collector told me it's a good korean psych album from 1979 (or 1980).
