About Me

Hi ~ As the recent trip after Covid has become more active, I have got many inquiries from CSers.
However, I'm recently working busy and very late to check your messages during the week.
So I'm very likely late to reply, then I ask for your understand in advance.

By the way, If you still insist to come to my humble/small home and experience it, please message me. However, I would like to avoid selfish CSers who do not know the meaning of CS and only want free accommodation.
In particular, for young travelers without references, I would appreciate it if you could write well about your self-introduction and travel motivation that can persuade me and send me a message. Thank you ~

Hello, I'm Jinkoo Sung from Seoul, South Korea.
I work for a company related to video content licensing / Monetization.
(And I used to work for music video / TV Commercial production industry.)

Because I've got a lot of interests, I do many activities such as Amateur Djing(Scratch),Rap, traveling, cycling, basketball, reading magazines and many other hipsters ? things. But I'm getting older and trying to focus on meeting CSers and something valuable things.

Especially, I think it is always good to meet Cser who has various insights through travels.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

When I was in London, I saw my flatmates renting a reception room to CSer from New Zealand and I thought it was a really good idea. So, In 2011, I firstly used CS when I visited Osaka. Since then, I have been focusing on Hangout in Korea, but I have been hosting CSer since 2017.

Originally, I'm going abroad more than one or two times a year, but I couldn't go out or host CSers because of the recent pandemic. Recently, I started hosting CSers from Argentina and Switzerland, Turkey and it feels like traveling through them.
