    ~ source www.Wikipedia.org

"Calling Sacramento, California his hometown, Victor Kim, born June 27, was first drawn to dancing when he saw Cuba Gooding Jr. breakdance on a Jerry Maguire commercial. Incredibly inspired, Victor soon became a member of the bboy crew called “Flexible Flav,” where he first met fellow Quest member D-trix. Victor moved to Orange County to attend school at the University of California, Irvine and received a BA in economics. Throughout his college career he was blessed with many opportunities to travel and share his love for dance around the world, including Singapore, England, Canada, and all over the United States. He has also appeared as a guest performer on American Idol, So You Think You Can Dance, and the MIMS “Like This” music video.

Victor Kim recently graduated from University of California, Irvine with a B.A. in Economics. Aside from dancing, Victor enjoys playing the drums, guitar, ukulele, singing and graffiti art. He often records his work and posts it on YouTube, and enjoys playing live whenever the opportunity presents itself.

Winning America’s Best Dance Crew in March 2009 with his friends of Quest, Victor has been traveling and perfoming across the U.S. and Canada with his crew. Today, he draws his inspiration from his fellow crew members and all the positive experiences surrounding him. With hopes of inspiring and changing the world, he hopes to achieve great things with his brothers and sister on Quest Crew."  ~ source: http://www.questcrew.com/about-questcrew/victor-kim/
