Q: In your background survey, you indicated that you enjoy listening to music. What kind of music do you like? Why do you like it? When and where do you usually listen to music? How do you listen to music?
▶ A: Music has always been a big part of my life. You could probably say that it’s my passion. Not a day goes by that I don’t listen to some sort of music.
I like nearly every style of music, but K-pop is my favorite. I could listen to songs by girl groups over and over again. The thing about this style of music that attracts me is the beautiful vocals and upbeat melodies.
I have a subscription to an online service that lets me download music easily, so I mostly use my smartphone to listen to music. I must have hundreds of MP3 files stored on this device.
Whenever I get on the bus or subway, I pop in my earphones and play some tunes. Even though I enjoy listening to other musical styles, I always come back to K-pop. I think I will be a fan of this type of music for as long as I live.
