I hope you all love the profiles and articles I make for you! I'm also a wikipedia editor so anything Kpop and you'll see me there! My favorite part about editing on KProfiles is that I get to learn about the groups that I write about based off of your requests. Everyone needs an extended Kpop playlist, thank you!

If you'd like to talk to me, my twitter is posted in the end of every article I make as well as above this post. It's also the same user as this one! Love to hear from you!
Bree!

  • I totally love this Ondubu Oppa….. I haven’t ever seen a more humble person than him in my entire life. He has collaborated with artists for singles and for SM station. He has sung several OSTs. In Military, he is the platoon leader. He has penned down the lyrics Your Name from SHINee’s album, Lucifer and other songs too.

    Idk why they added the option “He is my least favourite member of SHINee” and whoever those people who voted for that option, wtf??? In my opinion ranking members in groups isn’t nice even if it’s a fact. I don’t rank they’re all equally lovable and talented for me to rank them. Cmon have a sense of love.

  • Blueberry Pancakes

    Chill. I get how great your love is for him but he will never marry you lol that’s impossible and ridiculous.

  • Blueberry Pancakes

    Look, I won’t fight with you just for this matter. But he doesn’t even KNOW you personally. Have you guys ever talked? If so you’re just merely lucky. If you haven’t then it’s clear. Even if he becomes an old man he will never know your existence. All he knows is that he has loving and supportive fans. Just because he is real and alive doesn’t mean you are able to talk to him or even MARRY HIM. That won’t happen in your wildest dreams. Tell me which fan doesn’t want to marry him? If you think everything is possible just by how you want it to be or with money then the answer is no. And will you stop with those caps? Why are you getting so worked up lol

  • Blueberry Pancakes

    If you ever get to meet him and talk to him in this manner you’re just making him scared. Imagine someone who demands your marriage and thinks you’re their perfect match and their rightful partner. You won’t be delightful. I admire you for thinking everything goes your way, because that is not right and it’s brave of you to think that way your whole entire life all these while. I’m not saying you don’t love him. You’re not the only one who loves him. But marrying him is just too much, it’s definitely not gonna happen. Sure I shall sit and wait for infinity. Appreciate your support towards him and SHINee but please stop thinking everything goes the way you want.

    I DONT THINK YOU SHOULD HAVE POSTED THE SEXUAL HARASSMENT INCIDENT,FOR ONE MISTAKE EVEN WILL BE ETERNALLY JUDGED???? PLEASE TAKE AWAY THAT FROM THERE!….PLEASE!!!!
