Hi, this is Gaëtan. Graduated with a Master’s degree in Modern Languages, I am a big fan of Pop Culture. I have a particular affection for the culture of the 80s/90s. A great reader, I am also a cinephagous and serivore (a most balanced diet!). Fascinated by the Middle Ages, I am a big fan of Fantasy. Otherwise, I love Korean cinema, Japanese literature, series and British comics. Ah, I forgot: to know if there is wind, you have to put your finger in the rooster’s ass.
