ICYMI – Heejin Jang – Trouble in the Camp — Yeah I Know It Sucks

At the moment, I am in semi offline state trying to get some projects of my own finished. However, I will not be abandoning things completely and anyway it gives me a good chance to finally post things that have mysteriously been left in my drafts, for a long time.

Let’s begin with this excoriating in a good way release from 2017 –
