Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Came to know CS through Internet, travelog, etc.


Had 2 CS in Britain. and some(about 2~3) in Europe.
Had 1 CS in Hong Kong.
Hosts were so friendly and had their own ambitions! I loved these memories and now I'm trying to get into amazing couch surfing experience again :D


Interested in travel, languages, reading, British culture, drama, movies..
Plus, interested in meeting people from all over the world and sharing experiences.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I've been to Australia for about a month through a university program in January 2011. Life in Australia was the most amazing thing done in my life. In there, I experienced their life, culture and visited famous landmarks. I still remember that day vividly.

Also, my exchange student life in the UK totally changed the way I see, think and understand many social, economic phenomena. Met so many special friends, sharing each other's thought. And also I got many bits of help from locals, which I feel heart-warming still now.

Teach, Learn, Share

I would love to learn culture which is different from that of Korea. And I want to let you know about Korean culture if you want.

I would like to throw away my comfort zone which I have had for more than 5 years in Korea and dare myself into a brave new world!

Korean language and linguistic knowledge and teaching Korean
Anyone would like to learn the Korean language, please don't hesitate to contact me!

What I Can Share with Hosts

I can tell you my story, which you might be interested in if you would like to know what the typical Korean man's life is. It could be boring but could be interesting from a different point of view.

My life in Britain, about religions, etc.
