how do you pronounce ㄹ ??

I know it's pronounced 'r' or 'l' but when do I know when to pronounce 'l' and when 'r'. For example: 파리 (fly) is it 'pali' or 'pari' ?

It can also be silent. I imagine it's just one of those things that you get used to. I haven't noticed any particular rule or pattern when it comes to pronouncing it one way versus the other.

To pronounce 파리 it is Paris but you have to roll your tongue a little bit

Do you prefer girl groups or boy groups? Do you like the kind of bubbly pop? Are u okay with rap parts and if so do you mind if there are a lot of them or rather long parts? (I'm sorry that I'm asking so many questions. I just want to narrow it down a bit.)

It is only [l] when doubled up like ㄹㄹ in 빨리. In other cases, pronounce it like Spanish r (single tap, not trilled).

put your tongue in place as if to say "d" in dog but instead instead pronounce "l". there is a little bit of roll. its Usaully a mixture of both sounds.

try going on Go Billy Go's 2nd or 3rd Hangul lesson on youtube.

As I see it, ㄹ is pronounced something like a "rl" blend when it is at the beginning of a syllable like라면 or 일요일 . while ㄹ is pronounced like r if it is at the end of a syllable like 일 or 말. and finally ㄹ pronounced as r+rl when ending then beginning two syllables like 빨라요 or 전라도(발음: 절라도).

When a vowel comes after ㄹ, it is pronounced like "R" (unless it is an English loanword). Where ㄹ is last or followed or preceded by either ㄹ or ㄴ, it is pronounced "L". If ㄹ is followed by any other character than those mentioned, it becomes "N" (except for certain Chinese loanwords).
