About Me


Do anything, but let it produce joy.


A young Korean-American, trying to learn how to be more of that first half.

I'm generally very chill, though I certainly can become quite involved in a party or a conversation. I enjoy running and playing soccer. Additionally, I enjoy observing a slew of sports, as well as everyday things. I like to look at people, nature, some art.


I believe we can all learn from each other, as well as teach other.

I believe there are infinite ways of understanding one thing. I would like to share my views as well as acquire other viewpoints.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've surfed a little bit, but haven't been the wave yet.

Let's talk, meet for coffee, meet for drinks, crash at my place, crash at your place.


Surfed with two cool dudes while seeing some of Korea. A righteous experience.


Languages. I like linguistics.

Playing sports. I like playing soccer, though I'm not very competent. I thoroughly enjoy running, swimming, cycling and the three combined, though I haven't had much of any in Korea (except the running).

Music, Movies, and Books

I like a lot of movies: serious movies, historical movies, funny movies, stupid movies, etc.

I'm not very well read, but I'm changing that. Slowly.

Music? Who doesn't like music?

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I don't think I've seen too many amazing things before, but I try to keep my eyes peeled.

Does this qualify as "Amazing?" San Diego. My only trip to Cali. Trying to learn how to surf. One day, I swam with wild dolphins for a couple minutes.

Personally, I qualify Korea as an amazing thing I've seen in my lifetime. I think this place is a beautiful country with beautiful people.
