However, I still love watching horror movies.
2. I love escape rooms and will drive up to two hours to get to the nearest escape room.
3. I was born and raised in the suburbs of Los Angeles, California. I was scouted at the SM Global Auditions in 2008 and debuted in Seoul in 2009 to pursue a career as a K-Pop singer.
4. Tteokbokki is my favorite Korean food! It is made from a soft rice cake, fish cake, and a sweet red chili sauce.
