Brooklyn-based band collective Phony Ppl has taken the music scene by storm, but more recently, it's done the same to South Korea. Photographed by Ryan Jay, the quintet explored the country's capital city of Seoul ahead of a festival performance. Since their tour, they've also set to release a single, Something About Your Love, on 10/5.
