Hello I'm LordNoodles, and this is my website. I will post what I can about K-pop and other such things here, reviews, videos, my thoughts, that sort of thing. I do this for fun, and I have no connection to the industry.
I'm from a college town in Illinois, born and raised here, but went to university in St. Louis not too far away. I'm of Taiwanese descent and during the Hakka 2011 tour I was introduced by my friend Jennifer to a genre of music called K-pop. After that I started listening to at first Girls Generation and various others on Spotify, but soon discovered my favorite to be T-ara. They still are my favorites in terms of number of songs I like from them, but I've moved on to a broader K-pop general fandom. So I always toyed with the idea of a website, but didn't know what to put in it. I am kind of talkative when I want to be, and I must share my opinion sometimes. So, I started talking about K-pop a lot, and suddenly I had enough content for a site. Yay!
About the name: My name, LordNoodles was a partly randomly generated name from the game Heroes of Might and Magic 3, and I do love noodles, so I decided to adopt that identity. I appear in the T-ara forums at www.tiaradiadem.com with this name and a few of the members there know me. My real name is Ethan.
