I like finding nugu (=super underrated) K-Pop artists.
I also like procrastinating for some reason...

I'll try to post following a more precise schedule:
Monday: members' profiles
Tuesday: artist profiles
Wednesday: ship polls
Thursday: other polls
Friday: Who is Who?
Saturday: artist profiles
Sunday: artist profiles

I might still make regular artist profiles on the other days, as well
