winterxstar – a starry island

Hello everyone~

This is winterxstar, or to make this easier on you, you can call me Kim! 😀
I am from the rainy, yet beautiful state of Oregon (United States).
Though I live in the states, I am full Laotian.
And I am currently a sophomore at college.

I am a timer, encoder and uploader. I have been a part of this subbing team for a while now, I would say. I would love to be a translator, but unfortunately I don’t speak Korean~ T_T

Either way, it has been a honor to be a part of this subbing team! And I have enjoyed working on these projects to give YOU, the fans, an opportunity to watch. So you can enjoy all these shows without having to worry about learning a whole new language quickly, haha XD Also, I’d like to thank everyone for supporting us so far, so please continue to support us in the future~ much love to you all <33

My fandoms range from japanese to korean music. But I admit, I am obsessed with FT Island and have been for the past year or so. I mean, come on, these boys are too darn adorable to hate (especially Jaejin, hehe. He’s my favorite ft-i member, btw <3)! I am also a big fan of Epik High who will forever be my first loves ♥

Unlike most k-pop fans, I’m not really into the whole boy/girl idol fandom. And I’m not really sure why either, maybe it’s just not my thing XD My two biggest idol fandoms would definitely have to be F.T Island and Super Junior, who I have become interested in the past couple of years. Actually, I only started to like SJ this year after listening to their third album, haha 😀 And then I became more in love with them after watching their shows because they’re so hilarious (same way I got into f.t island~). Anyways, I guess you can say I’m more of the ballad/alternative/rock type, hehe XD But that doesn’t mean I don’t love to listen to catchy k-pop songs once in a while! That’s what I love about k-pop, and asian music in general, it’s just refreshing to listen to~

Other korean artists I like are Sung Si Kyung, Nell and many more (but these are my faves <3)
