“After frequenting the world of manga, anime and J-Pop, I finally fell into K-Pop thanks to SNSD in 2013. Since then, I have been learning about the different aspects of Korean culture, through the food, language, story… I got into dramas in 2016 thanks to BTS’ V and his role in ‘Hwarang’. By the way, my favorite genres are thrillers and historical dramas. Apart from that, I have a great passion for dance, and also for music!”
