Getting used to my new job
Hello CSers :)
I am Hyunwook Park from South Korea. I have studied in Bayreuth, Germany and Istanbul, Turkey as an exchange student for a year and a half in total. I also had internships in both countries at a trading firm and marketing agency. I recently started working in Korea so it is quite likely for me to stay here for at least a few years :)
I am very easy going, open minded person. I always try to respect and understand different cultures of different countries which meana i am always ready to experience new stuff :)
I sincerely love to travel, meet new people with different cultural backgrounds, share ideas and opinions on various topics as well as fun experiences!
These are really I ove to do and what I really do!
When you meet me, you will realize who I am ;)
Don't worry too much.
No pain, No gain.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
When I was planning to travel to Europe right after my military service, I met a person who was a couchsurfer. She gave me lots of information about Couchsurfing. I was wondering that if it could be real or not. Even after meeting her in person I could not fully believe it just because it sounded too amazing to believe. I also thought that it could be dangerous and adventurous at th3 same time. (But it was not dangerous at all). After that meeting, I did some research on Couchsurfing on the internet and found out some blogs regarding CS. I also read a book about Couchsurfing which was written by a Korean writer.
I traveled to Europe for 70 days with CS after I finished my military service which is mandatory in Korea. It was sincerely amazing to me. It was always a dream for me to meet people from different countries with unique cultural backgrounds. My dream came true after my trips. I still contact with most of my friends I met through CS. I have plans to visit them again and already visited a couple of them.
Some of my friends from CS visited me in Seoul,Korea too which is awesome!
I also went lots of CS meetings which were held in Korea and Turkey.
Foreign languages(German and Japanese in particular.
People who are different from me.
Music, Movies, and Books
