Leon Ku, The Gundam Modeller

"Hi! My name is Leon"
Someone: "Leon? Are you Leon ku who did those great Gundam model?"
Me:"I get that a lot but I am LEon, the blogger from Open the toy?"
Someone:"Oh..."
Me:"(-_-lll)"

No, this is not a scene in "I get that a lot" show but these are some real life situation I get whenever I introduced myself to some Gunpla fans at some events. Such reaction set me thinking that the works of Leon Ku is so famous but these people never seen him in person before?

So I have decided to introduce Leon Ku on my blog and do an exclusive interview with him so that you will know that Leon Ku and LEon(that's me) are two different person...
