Yunsoo is a Junior in the School of Engineering, majoring in Computer Science. He loves to watch musicals, and his go-to music genre changes every few months, with the current being electro swing. He is quite clumsy, which is apparent from the number of times he bangs into corners per week (yet he also finds this strangely funny). After years of playing clarinet in the marching band, he decided to try something new for college. With no other singing experience than singing in the showers, he screamed for minutes when he found out that he was a part of Heartbeat. He also teaches an EECS lecture here at U of M!
