  • I got into BTS before debut, with their "학교의눈물" music video.
  • The first fansign I went to was the N.O fansign at Jongno.
  • I've been to like 10(?) fansigns up until this point.
  • Suga knows he's my bias.

  • I am not Korean, and neither of my parents are Korean. I am a white person who was born in the United States and lived there for my whole life before studying abroad in Korea in 2012.
  • I studied Korean for 4 years, beginning in 2011, and took classes in LA, at Sogang University, and at Yonsei KLI. I'm still not fluent, I'm about a TOPIK 4 (out of 6 levels)~
  • I can't really recommend textbooks because those program books are the only ones I've used. Similarly, I can't really recommend any apps or websites for learning Korean.
  • I am not rich. I have a job and I save money in order to be able to afford things like concert tickets and fanmeetings. I pre-sell albums to afford fansigns and very, very rarely do I over-buy (i.e. buy more albums than I've already sold).

  • I don't translate things except a) because I want to, or; b) because I'm being paid to do so. This includes even short sentences. I used to translate things for people just because they asked, but I got so many requests and people were so thankless about it that I've decided to stop translating except in the abovementioned two circumstances.
  • I do my best to answer grammar questions, but sometimes they take me a while to respond to since they need a lot of thought.
  • I allow my translations of song lyrics, etc. to be re-posted or translated into other languages~ You don't have to ask permission, either. All I ask is for credit to be given for the original translation. Translating is hard work with very little reward :(
  • Yes, that's me in that one fansign video ...
