Juniel is not ‘Stupid’

Juniel is not ‘Stupid’

Juniel, to me, is a cross between IU and Younha. IU for her same softer vocals and guitar playing and Younha for her background in Japan. As a former Superstar K contestant, she’s not all too foreign to the Kpop music scene. Having debuted in Japan already, she is now setting hers eyes on Korea, […]
