Name: Win Hern
Age : 15
How you got into K-Pop: ‘I have been a kpop fan since last year, 2012. SISTAR was the first kpop girl group I knew! One day, I asked to choose a song for a dancing competition in a camp in my school. I used to be a person lived without music, so it’s quite hard for me to do this but it’s a very important task for me! After coming back from school, I keep searching some songs in the internet, but there’s no any song that I like. Then, I go take a rest on my sofa and watching my tv. When I keep tuning the channel, there was something ridiculous happened! One of the channel I turned is a Korean channel and it was broadcasting a kpop show. The song perform is just stop me by turning the channel, the song is ALONE by SISTAR. The song is so nice and I am falling in love with SISTAR and ALONE! ALONE is the first song in my life! But since there was several reasons, I did not choose ALONE as the dancing song. But my group won too in the competition with other kpop song! This year too, I joined the camp once again two weeks ago and my group won again in the dancing part with ALONE and GIVE IT TO ME! I performed the Dasom’s solo part as well as I can!’
