Sophia is a Korean immigrant living in Canada who reconnected to her cultural roots via K-Pop. Her love of groups like 2PM and BIGBANG (among many others) kickstarted a nearly 15-year love affair with the genre and an appreciation for K-R&B artists like Crush, Zion T., Dean, and more. Now, Sophia writes news and entertainment pieces about Korean culture, helping to pass on her love and knowledge of the growing phenomenon. Through her work, she also hopes to facilitate K-Pop’s tendency to bring diverse fans together as it did for her.
