Hello, I’m tourmate Mi-Ryu. I’m 20 years old and I’d love to communicate with new people. I’m a good laugher and sociable person. So I’m sure of myself we can be a real friend through tour because of my personality. I enjoy eating and traveling. And I’m interested in music specifically playing the musical instrument (like piano and harmonica) and learning other country’s languages and cultures. I hope many people contact me and tour together. Thank You guys and have a happy day!
