CrayonBeats Magazine: Issue 2!
After releasing our premier issue in February, we have finally returned with a second issue. As of yesterday, April 19th, it is up for grabs. The two of us have been collectively listening to K-pop for years–Tiffny more so than I–so, we wanted to showcase a different variety of artists to our viewers. More than just music though. Here, we feature a selection of musicians, artists, and creative minds that all share Korean heritage or a passion for the Korean culture.Â We hope to introduce our readers to some incredible talent that they may not otherwise know about.
