    We need a petition.... for these girls to start a K-Pop dance cover group!!! They're really good dancers and it's getting overshadowed by the screeching of conservative Americans.

    A film of staggering beauty. It had this gorgeus darker edge to it which I really liked, due to the music, and the autumn/winter vibe, especially in Hamburg.

    I just really wish I could meet Kim Min-hee, so I can say hi and run away giggling.
