Club Jeff, Seoul

November / December 2008

Another hybrid Seoul venue that barely qualifies as a disco is Club Jefe, although the spacious second floor does easily lends itself to putting on disco style events.

Located on the broad Han River, between Seoul’s newly expanding southern and established northern districts, this is one of the capital’s newest entertainment spots. After two years of construction it opened in spring this year. The name Jefe is loosely translated as “occupation forces taking over”. Dreamt up, owned and operated by a luxury car and yacht finance company, their concept for this venue was to create a place for wealthy people to enjoy water sports alongside a luxury dining and dancing lifestyle. Total interior design was by Choon Hee-Ko of WithusDesign right down to stylish uniforms for the staff. Based on Jefe’s initial success, there are already plans underway for major expansion.

The Dynacord sound system here was installed by supplier distributor Ssang-Bong Co.Ltd, headed by Kae-Young Lee - usually referred to as KY Lee. The vast success of Dynacord in Korea is reportedly attributable to a chance meeting many years ago in Germany when Lee attended a garden party and was introduced to one of Dynacord’s key personnel. Since then he has risen to become one of the leading figures in the Korean club audio industry and Dynacord the system of choice for the majority of large Korean entertainment venues.

It was KY Lee who recommended ArtTech, Robe Lighting’s exclusive distributor in Korea for lighting. The Robe lighting throughout is exemplary for such an inspiring location and more than does justice to Choon Hee-Ko’s interior design, especially on the second floor which serves as a mult-function room. Watching Robe’s Color Spots and Color Washes in action against the backdrop of the Han River and Seoul city, it is very easy to see how it can position itself as the leading dance club for Korea’s healthy and wealthy.
