For those of you who aren’t in the know, Shine is a YA novel about a young Korean girl named Rachel who wants to become a kpop star. Written by Jessica Jung of SNSD fame, it was both touted as a completely fictional piece that would let you live the life of a budding kpop star.
The same Jessica Jung who was part of Kpop royalty during her time at SM Entertainment. And the same Jessica Jung who got embroiled in a scandal which led to her getting blacklisted in the industry.

For Shine, however, I have plenty of opinions.
