I'm a Korean-American, born in Seoul, lived in Chicago and now back in Korea. Before coming back here, I was a banker on Wall Street for many years. I gave up on that career after realizing that I was missing out on life and the things that mattered to me most. I naturally made the transition into guiding because hospitality is merely an overflow of my personality and and an outpour of my servant heart. I love talking about Korea and that's what I get to do all day when I guide my guests. Living a simple and care-free life now, I have no regrets.
So we can talk about Korea anything. Korean culture, history, society. . . you name it. I'm very flexible. We can even have an honest conversation about the pressing issues we face as a nation. I'm very happy to answer any questions you have about Korea.
I can also take you to some of the most exciting places here in Korea and tell you the stories of what makes them so amazing. I am an expert on Korean traditional architecture, as well as traditional food. A trip with me will take you through our past, present as well as show you what the future has in store for us.
