I’ve been into K-pop since early 2010. Went from being a Big Bang/YG stan, to being a lover of boy groups in general. My friends know who Rain is because of me and my mom sings EXO’s “What Is Love” in the car even though she tries not to let me hear. Other than K-pop, I love Fall Out Boy and hope to one day see them live. I have pretty much a mix of everything from 90s hip hop to Disney soundtracks to Luther Vandross and Alicia Keys on my iPod. I love to write, even though I’ve taken a break from fanfics to focus on GMM. Mostly, I like my music and books and that’s just me.
