Happy 10th Anniversary!


Time flies really fast, as the first AKF article was written ten years ago on April 12, 2011. I had a great five-year run with the site ending in 2016 and writing articles here and there every few years. I was a 20-year-old university student with too much time on my hands (was taking a bunch of general education and basic business courses) up until that point and wasn't taking any hard classes yet. I was also severely depressed and isolated, which I believe were the key ingredients of AKF being the way it was. Now at 30 living in a brand new city, working a fully-remote job that I love, having a great group of friends where I live, dating an amazing and beautiful woman that I love, and just living a much better life than I was a decade ago, there's no way I could return to writing with how my life is. In 2016 I was finally being serious in tackling my depression and the quality of my articles were going down, and when I tried writing again in 2017 and 2018 being in a much better mental state, I wasn't able to recapture the magic that I once had. 

I still follow Kpop and love it, but the overall fandom has become more toxic over time to the point where I disassociate myself with fans. I just wanted to make one last post and share one more MS Paint picture with you all, whoever happens to randomly find this post four-and-a-half years later after the site was closed down.
