  1. I am going to google on youtube to see Kpop. Looks fun and your poem is full of energy!! I can feel it. Also love learning more about the Sijo form! Your April poetry project is one I will return to.

  2. Perfect fit of form and content! My students teach me about K-Pop. One fan (a South Asian girl) is even learning Korean via DuoLingo!

    1. Emkfit has a K-Pop exercise video that is really fun, Linda! I've even added many of the songs to my Spotify playlist. If you watch a K-pop video, their dancing is AMAZING. :)
