This past Sunday, I had the opportunity to photograph Joe Lee. He is one of my dongsengs I met several years ago at church, and he's been a part of my life ever since. Many of you guys may know him or know of him already, as he has been pursuing his dream of being a musician as a rapper, dancer, and a producer. I don't know too many details on his music life and goals, but I have watched him throughout the years of him performing for church related events, things like Koreatown's annual celebration called "Jangtuh," and even come out in a survival audition show: K-Pop Star Season 1. I personally would have to say that my most memorable moment for Joe while watching K-Pop Star was seeing him and his group's performance of "Friday Night" by g.o.d.
 Joe's been working on producing, mixing, writing lyrics/raps, and performing not only as Joe Lee, or "Metoo" himself, but he has also been doing some duo projects with this guy named "Nomtom." Feel free to check out Joe's instagram: CALLMETOO , along with his soundcloud: CALLMETOO .

For as long as I can remember, Joe was always a fashionable dude. Yes, there have been slight changes to his fashion over the years as I have witnessed myself. However, that never changed the fact that Joe enjoys standing out in his attire and not dress like everyone else. He makes the clothes fit him and not him fit the clothes. Even his casual attire that he considers the "hobo look" came off nicer than a hobo look that anyone else may pull off. I do believe that confidence is what takes part in making an outfit legit and that confidence is what we all need for ourselves.
