Quote Me: “I’d go as far I could go as long as people love to hear my music and my voice. I would do my best to show my talent.”

Notes on Van:

Coming from a well-off family, good-looking, and talented, Van is expected to be contended with his life. But when asked what song would describe his general feeling, his immediate reply is “Incomplete.”

Van’s family used to be complete and happy until his parents separated. His mom is now based in the States while his father has his own life away from Van. All by himself, he has no one else to turn to but his textbooks and his music. But since it’s music that make shim happy, he has opted to postpone schooling for the meantime.
PDA will not give the Van the feeling of wholeness that he yearns for, but it will train him to become a better singer and perhaps, a complete artist.
