KOREAN MUSIC AND T.V. SHOWS

Biography

Hello! My name is Philip Kwan. I am currently a student at the University of Ottawa. I plan to specialize in Accounting. I was born on December 22, 1992 in Montreal, Quebec. Yes, that's right, I am 19 and older than a lot of people that are in my year. My friends tease me and joke around all the time saying I failed a grade but in reality, I just started school later than kids my age.



Topic Choice

Choosing a topic for the wiki space was a bit challenging I couldn't decide between two topics. Therefore, I decided to merge two themes together to make one! My theme will be....Music and Shows. It will be focused on a specific kind....Korean! Keep in mind, I am not Korean, nor am I able to speak or understand it. When I want to understand what they're saying, I end up watching it with English subtitles.








Themes

Music

I've been enjoying Korean music for a couple of years now. If someone asked me about it....I'd say I've been listening to it on and off for around 4 years or so? So therefore, I decided to share my interest in Korean music!

Shows

I could expand on this for so much. I decided that you might get bored by what I'd be telling you so I thought I might just show you my most favorite Korean show at the moment...Heartstrings! :)

Heartstrings

This tv show has become one of my favorite shows that I've watched. It stars Jung Yong Hwa (C.N.Blue leader) and Park Shin Hye (Actress and close friend of Yong Hwa)
