About Me


Travel as much as I can!


I live in Philadelphia, US but originally from Seoul, South Korea. I'm a scientist working on human genetics.

I'm an easy-going person (I think) but same time I know how to care about others.

I just realized there are so many things to do in my life (sorry, I'm late). Traveling is the one of them. Usually I travel alone but don't mind to have company (actually it would be better) and love to meet new people.

I'm also a runner. I'm not good but enjoying. If I'm traveling, there must be a marathon I attend. My motto = Runners are sexy!
