Could you tell us who you are, where you’re from and give us a little description about yourself?

Hii, I’m Janna. I’m 21 years old and from the Netherlands! I absolutely love dancing and started an own K-pop dance cover group in 2018.

So how long are you a K-pop fan and how did you get introduced?

I’ve been a fan since 2015. I found out about it through YouTube back in 2013, when I saw a teaser for BTS’ debut song “No More Dream”. I really liked their debut album, but after that I kinda drifted out of the K-pop scene. Until I found Got7’s song “Just Right”, which got me right back in and I have not regretted it since.

Why do you love K-pop and what makes it different compared to other genre’s?

K-pop is very different. All western songs are either about love or partying, where as K-pop songs will be about self love or mental health. What stands out the most is probably the upbeat tunes and the bright music videos. As well as the concerts. K-pop concerts are so different from western concerts, which I really love. The whole setting and fanchants make it a magical experience. The fandom is very socially active and making friends with other K-pop fans is so easy. For example, I met my best friend through a BTS concert.

If you make K-pop related content could you tell us what you do and why?

Back in 2018 I’ve started a K-pop dance cover group called Azalea Dance Crew (IG: @azaleadancecrew), because I really wanted to make cover dances. We went from dancing in the city park to dancing in an actual studio! And after a year of struggling, we posted our first covers. We’re making covers of K-pop choreographies and post them on YouTube. We are planning to compete in competitions soon. My group is very dear to me and we’ve become very good friends. I hope we can keep making covers for a long time.

Could you tell us your top 5 K-pop groups (in no particular order):

My 5 ultimate groups are ONEWE, MY.st, ATEEZ, ONEUS and BTS.

Out of those 5, if you had to pick a number 1, who would it be and why?

My number 1 would be MY.st. They’re an amazing and talented idol group who deserved more recognition. They debuted this year with their amazing song “Don’t Know” and I recommend listening to it!

Who’s your bias. Could you tell us your top 5 (in no particular order):

Cya (ONEWE), Mingi (ATEEZ), Leedo (ONEUS), Woojin (MY.st) and Namjoon (BTS).

If you had to pick a number 1 bias, who would it be and why?

This is such a cruel question, because I love them all equally. But if I really had to pick.. it would be Cya. Apart from being a basist and rapper in ONEWE, he releases his own tracks on SoundCloud. And I can vibe really well on all his songs. His voice is very soothing and sweet.

Imagine getting a wish granted, but it has to be K-pop related: could you tell us what your wish would be and why?

A wish to be granted.. I could make a very selfish wish but I’d wish for concert tickets for all K-pop fans, who are too poor to be able to afford a concert ticket and to go see their ult group in concert. I believe everyone should have an once in a lifetime experience of meeting their favorite artist, but K-pop concerts are SO expensive.

Let’s spread some love by giving a big shout out. Who would you like to give a shout out to and why?

I want to give a shoutout to @monbaksu on twt and to my dancecrew for being such amazing people and being a huge part of my life. <3

And last but not least: if you could change the world with just one positive message (it doesn’t have to be K-pop related), what would it be?

Spread love. Not hate. The world would be better that way.
