About Me

*I'm too busy these days because I try to run my own biz😵‍💫 and move much Changwon so There's a higher probability of not being able to host you. ⚠️But! It'll be worth to ask me host. If I can afford to host, I will try to host you and I will reply you ASAP decline or accept🥲*

Welcome to Busan!⛵🚢🌉🌃🗻🌊🎆🎥🏊🏄🎣
Many of travelers rush to Seoul. But I hope you look around Busan detaily. Busan is also big city like Seoul(Actually, Busan is wider and bigger than Seoul). I had met many of travelers who visited Seoul firstly and then visited Busan and another cities. They said Busan and another cities are better than Seoul :) I hope you discover story of their experiences.😝

You can call me Phin which is my nick name.🐬 I like dolphin so one of my friends gave me the nickname. My hometown is Busan but I lived Seoul in Korea, 8-9years.

I want to experience as much as possible about every part of the world. I don't want to limit my life. I want to learn how to live with others, learn your culture, build friendship, understand your way of life, learn your language and even fall in love your world. As you also have many questions about my country, culture, my life and my world, there are so many things we don't know about the world. How about trying to open up our mind a little bit more and respect each other's differences?😃
I wish you don't judge a book by its cover like age, male or female, skin color and so on
It gives people a preconceived notion of background, gender, age, occupation, and so on. I try to avoid those.

I've been a member of Couchsurfing since 2009. I was appointed Ambassador by recommendation and nomination of Couchsurfing HQ in the USA and signed a contract officially and I'm a Busan City Representative Couchsurfing Ambassador in Busan.

Now I'm in Busan. If I have free time, I would host you on Busan's home or meet up you :) I move Seoul or Changwon and It is not fixed, frequently. So my state is 'maybe'. If my condition is able to host, I would try to host you.

한국어 하실수 있으신 분이나, 한국인이신분 한국어로 요청하셔도 됩니다 :)

I like traveler who want to learn Korean language :)
I'm sorry about I'm not good at English :(
But I'm be good at body language :)
May be you can understand almost XD.

Before you ask me for a host, I want to set some limits.
Couchsurfing is not for free accommodation. I think Couchsurfing emphasizes the virtue of helping each other.
I want your reference that at least one traveler stayed at your house before asking me for a host from traveler / not from host when you were traveler.
If it's an environment where you can't be host or newbie(novice about couchsurfing), please mention why to me.

I would like to check if at least you have read my profile before you send me a request so..
Please add in your message the word 'Mellifluous' as a proof, ok?
otherwise I'll just not take the time to answer you and I will reject your request directly.

Ah! I would like to record, interview, make a video and upload to YouTube or social media about some of events(ex making cook, going together nice places e.t.c) while I will host you or I'm hosted by you. This can be a good memory together, and I want to make it known to many of travelers and my friends. If you feel uncomfortable and mind that, please let me know that in advance.

Have a nice travel!!!!

⚠I won't accept friend and won't give my telephone before making plan bellows
chatting/ sending make plan to host/ be hosted/ meeting up face to face.

Carpe diem!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Some people explore forests, history, city, the sky.
I like travel and explore also I'd like to explore people: how they live, how they’re happy, what they see, what makes happy and what is life.
I enjoy meeting people, listening and sharing their life.
Also I want to share my life with people.
Everydays... My life is exploring.


All things...... watching movie, take picture, trip, etc
And Meet people.
