Another panel I worked on in addition to the Gundam Timeline Panel is one that talks about the “History of K-Pop”, which serves as a good introduction to K-Pop for those who are only familiar with BTS or want to learn more about K-pop in general.

This is a throwback post from December 2012 featuring Mai Kuraki (倉木麻衣). This a refresher for me after discovering her album again from a vendor several years ago at MTAC Omega, and getting lost in the Hallyu Wave. Returning to my J-Pop roots, I talked about what makes her different […]
