Default Any experimental/avant-garde Korean music?

Since i of course love Kpop, i would like to go deeper and find some experimental avant-garde korean music, but it doesn’t seem like i can find any on youtube.

Do you have any recommendations on where to find some or do you have any examples on it?

Some avant-folk...

Mid Air Thief is really popular. I like it a lot...

Okkyung Lee might be the premier avant-garde artist right now however. I was fortunate to watch her open for Swans.

I'm not a K-Pop follower, my daughter is. But it did come as a surprise to hear her picking up on Cosmo Sheldrake's work within that community, which I knew well, having been on the edge of his circle a few years back, musically, and also of his parents in the wilder edge of psychology. They're based in London, Cosmo in the Dalston circuit.
BTS have also been moderating rap, adding melody to it, bringing it back into the world of patter.
