In my free time, I enjoy sports (Visca el Barça¡ 🔴🔵 / Let’s go Oilers! 🟠🔵), cooking, … I was a soccer player (best record: 2nd place in the high school soccer league of Fuzhou City) for a long period before I got serious back injury. I’m also a fan of many KPOP girls’ groups and solos (sounds strange but their music really make my day :p).
