Join Couchsurfing to see Haehyun’s full profile. It’s free!
I am open-minded, cherish experiences, and kind of a listener than a speaker. I love sitting on the river side and just watch the river flow and people flow. But I also enjoy rockin in concerts and drinking beer with my fella earthlings! I cannot explain myself in few sentences - as we all cannot.
I write fictions. I struggle to organize those things floating in the thin air on paper. I think a lot, and then put things into words. That doesn't mean that I'm just so introverted to have fun with you guys! I might even be so talkative when meet new perspective and view. Well I'm just being curious and loving life.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I cherish experiences. Luckily I got to have this wonderful opportunity of studying abroad and meeting new people, and I would love to experience the authentic atmosphere around the world.
Actually my life-goal is to be an author, which haven't changed for 10 years, and I'm collecting stories from people. I love reading novels (that's why I'm double majoring in Korean literature) and also I write some. Every time I meet new people at new places I get inspired. Well, that doesn't mean that my ultimate purpose for CS is 'story collecting'! Inspiration comes along naturally with lively conversation and novel experiences and fun, fun, fun!
