Author’s Comments: It has been a while since I have released an updated version of my bias list, but I can assure you that Eric is in the top ten of that list. What I love about Eric is that he is not only a great singer (especially live), but he is very down-to-earth, natural and comedic. He seems like that average guy that can hang out and fit in with your friends quite easily. Sometimes, it is easy to forget that he is an internationally known KPOP star because he is so fun and realistic with all his fans and peers! Check the video below to see one of my favorite songs from him, “Ooh Ooh”, and click here to see my recap of his showcase in Toronto, which I attended!
