Dislikes: Creatures with eight legs, beer and certain Kpop fandoms but I wont name names in case I get SLAUGHTERED
Hey there everyone! I’m a born and bred Londoner whose love of Japanese culture stemmed from obsessing over Digimon as a young child. This has now expanded into the world of Japanese Variety Shows, Anime, Manga, J-Pop and J-Rock, Food… and in recent years a love of Korean Dramas, Kpop and shows such as Running Man. Unhealthy obsessions include watching anything that has B1A4, BTS, 2PM, BigBang or Super Junior in it religiously until I almost know it off by heart. Also obsessing over the certain body parts of certain people…
Role: Sub Editor and Head of Korean Section
Likes: Leaders and maknaes of groups, Korean hip hop, Lady Gaga, Korean musicals, green tea food/drink/products, watching running water, gore, zombies and puzzle
Dislikes: Clowns, aliens, a majority of people in the kpop fandoms (aka: the crazies), spiders, remakes of movies, and bands not singing live without a really good excuse

Annyeonghaseyo, chingudeul!! Hello, friends!! You can call me Haruru! ^^v I have been surrounded by east asian culture for most of my life, only recently being able to share it with my friends, most of whom I met through doing Cosplay and visiting conventions! I live and work in London, and have attended a number of Popular Culture events and blogged about them; maybe now I can put them where they will actually be read, haha!! I enjoy many Japanese and Korean movies, and I’m a little out of touch with Anime right now, but I still read over my classic Manga/Manhwa collection!!
I like my K-pop/HipHop, and J-Rock, and LOVE my Variety shows! I’m also super into cooking, I love to sing and dance, and teaching people Korean when I am able. 🙂
Don’t be shy – you can talk to me! ^^V

I’m Vicky, and I write for the Japanese section of JaK! I’m currently studying Modern Languages (Spanish with Japanese and a side of Italian), so I’ll be bringing you the Japanese language side of things! I have a love for Korean culture as well as Japanese, and have worked in various roles at conventions, so I have a fair bit of knowledge of this little scene we have going on! I’m always happy to share my love for all this stuff with everyone, so I hope to see you around!~
