Welcome to the innocent lam! My name is Michelle and I run this this blog, also nicknamed “ilam.” I recently graduated from a liberal arts college where I studied mathematics and economics, and played the carillon. Currently I am working as an economics research assistant at a federal institution, and am seriously considering a PhD in economics. I also continue to play the carillon in the area, fortunately.
On this blog, I focus mostly on SHINee (if you haven’t noticed yet– my bias is Jonghyun). For every major release and activity, I will post a review or some thoughts. I am usually quite busy and it is hard for me to do quick turnarounds. However, I can promise you, until the day SHINee stops activities, I will always be posting.
When writing about and reviewing kpop, I have a very academic approach; in the world of amateur reviews, I am bit of a rare specimen. I also recommend callmepatricia, who was a schoolmate of mine in college, who likewise brings quite a disciplined perspective to kpop.
