K-Pop Fan Interview: Mikel
Could you tell us who you are, where you’re from and give us a little description about yourself?
Hi, I am Mikel from Spain. Professionally I am a photographer, but I usually dance K-pop in a group called Badmash.
So how long are you a K-pop fan and how did you get introduced?
It’s been already 9 years. I listened to SHINee’s debut song and I start exploring Youtube by searching for more similar songs.
Why do you love K-pop and what makes it different compared to other genre’s?
As a photographer I love the aesthetics and that it’s visually very stunning. That makes it a huge difference between American or European pop and K-pop. And ofcourse all of the choreographies.
If you make K-pop related content could you tell us what you do and why?
I dance K-pop with my group. It is called Badmash. And I also collaborate with an online magazine, writing some reviews about the new MV releases.
Could you tell us your top 5 K-pop groups (in no particular order):
Shinee, Vixx, Dreamcatcher, Ace and Victon.
Out of those 5, if you had to pick a number 1, who would it be and why?
Shinee. It’s the first group I discovered and I think they are all multitalented and can shine within any genre.
Who’s your bias. Could you tell us your top 5 (in no particular order):
Jonghyun (SHINee), Seungsik (Victon), Key (SHINee), JYP and Jiyeon (T-ara).
If you had to pick a number 1 bias, who would it be and why?
Jonghyun (SHINee). He was a true artist. He didn’t just make music, he tried to make changes and helped many people with his music. Also he was one of the biggest activist against hate and he openly supported lgtbiq people.
Imagine getting a wish granted, but it has to be K-pop related: could you tell us what your wish would be and why?
Shinee ot 5 concert.
Let’s spread some love by giving a big shout out. Who would you like to give a shout out to and why?
@srslydance She is not just an amazing person she is one of the most elegant dancer out there.
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?
Live the moment, don’t try to experience and be good at everything in a short period of time.
