About Me


Hang in there~~


It is always difficult for me to describe myself in any language. One thing I am pretty sure about me is that I have not grown up yet.

I had spent quite long time in a few foreign countries for my master degree and work. Definitely, this kind of life suits me.

Contradictively enough, what I have done for me was totally opposite.
I made decision to go to medical school again, and it made me feel like being stuck in the long and dark tunnel. Finally I got a Korean medicine doctor license and used to work as a doctor in the small town for short time. Now I am locking myself inside tunnel again for my PhD, hopefully I can finish it asap!!!

The things that I like: nice and warm beach, animals, romantic comedies, genuine people and yummy vegan food make me smile.

Living as vegan means a lot to me. Unfortunately it is kind of a barrier to get along with people in Korea though. I hope I could meet more friends through CS. *^^*

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have surfed several times and lucky enough I met several lovely hosts. I have hosted only one time since my life have been chaos.
Anyhow I love to meet people from all over the world. ^^


Surfed two times in Singapore in January of 2013, those were really sweet and awesome!!
2013 summer, I surfed in London, few cities in France, those were also nice and warmhearted!!!
2014 winter, I was hosted in Boracay!
2015 winter and summer I was hosted in Mexico for a long time~~ During that long holiday I faced horrible liar host family and huge fraud. Nevertheless I met more of good and kind people at the same time. It is such a shame that kind of bad people exist in couchsurfing website. I learned very painful and expensive lesson from that. However it doesn't change my personality nor my nature that I love to meet people and trust people without any doubt or guard, truly enjoy living with people I met.
