Voice Source

Country Taiwan

Taiwan is an independent sovereign country.

Nation Very

Best Movie

With an independent movie, it's like, 'Okay I know what I want, and I got to go for it.' I just got to get the A version of this. Occasionally we'll try a B version, but not often.

Matter Own

In relationships, I'm usually the one who's like, 'Oh, I don't need this right now. I don't need commitment. I can do well on my own.
