Story by Dallah Hussein:
So just under 5 years ago, while I was in uni I was working on one of my projects during a late evening. One of my friends decided to take a break from his project and started blasting music that I have never heard before but it seemed quite catchy. So I just went over to his desktop and he was watching a K-pop music video on YouTube. I found it strange at first but really cool at the same time. Yeah I’ll be honest the members of KARA did kind of help me get into it.
So in my own spare time I started listening to other K-pop artists and finally my preference began to go towards K-Hip Hop. As I was listening and researching more and more about the artists, it got me watching the Korean TV shows like Running Man, Family Outing and some dramas.
