Evangeline shared that because she’s not a professional singer and can’t speak a word of Korean, she’s recruited some help for her experiment. For singing, she’ll be receiving tutelage from Holly Ellison, who was a contestant on The Voice UK.

Around 1:00 am she finally ended her day and was able to head to bed! Evangeline said her throat felt dry and her body hurt from all the dancing, noting that she doesn’t know how people can maintain a daily schedule as strict as this one.
