Administrator & Writer (and all those little things ~lol)
Hey everyone! As you might know, my name is Kay and I usually lurk around here doing odd things, sometimes posting, sometimes trying to figure out wordpress, other times hoping to catch someone to chat with. I love meeting new people, especially Tae Yang fans and that’s why I created this site. I wanted this to be a place where international fans could meet and appreciate the type of music Tae Yang creates. Thank you to everyone who has visited this blog~
I Heart: writing my own music, getting lost in a book, endlessly discussing a topic, SUMMER, korean/japanese/taiwanese/thai dramas (~yes, I’m a dramaholic) my piano and ofcourse, the people who post here =)
Peeves: immaturity, my addiction to chocolate (~i need to quit!), dispassionate professors & people who don’t say “thank you” when you open the door for them
Believer in… destiny, faith, living life to the fullest, having no regrets & most of all, being grateful….

Always Tae Yang is the full dose of my fangirl-ish tendencies. Although I do all sorts of random stuff, my main responsibilities with the blog are scavenging for tidbits of information and blogging, maintaining the gallery, and Twitter-ing. ATY has become a sort of addiction because it’s fun, and I love the team and you readers who visit.
Addictions: music that makes me move; R&B; reading blogs; sneakers; streetwear; my piano; people who have opinions and share it;
Annoyances: bad writing; mindless music; irrationally-fanatical-fangirlism;
Quirks: doesn’t usually like female vocals; writes an essay with every comment; lives here; fangirl-in-denial; likes being elusive;
Believes that there’s no such thing as bad music, only music you don’t feel.

A long time ATY lurker, now turned writer. A YB stan since 2008, I am a relative halmoni by Kpop standards. (Have no idea how and why I became a fan, it sort of snuck up on me.) Grew up on Motown and have developed a taste for old school music of various genres. Loves dancing, dancers and dance in general. Dog lover. “Glass is always half full.” “Things can and should always be improved.” Ghost of the ATY chatbox.
Likes: Open minded discussion – I always learn new things from people!
Dislikes: People who jump to conclusions; have no respect for the opinions of others; who ask questions but don’t want to hear the answers.
Quirks/Addictions: Don’t know how to fangirl. 80% of (my) life’s problems can be solved with cake and tea. YB fancam addiction.
Quotes from a fellow stan: On YB videos: Download first, ask questions later.
Favorite YB quote (of many): “Everyone, I would love for you to listen to all the good music in this world and be happy until I return, and for you to find peace and love in your hearts.”

Pet Peeves: being mean for the sake of being mean.
