About Me

I am a Korean native at 66, going on 67.

I was born, raised, educated, worked, and have lived in Seoul, South Korea for over 60 years.

I retired from full-time work in December 2023 and am currently working as a special advisor to business leaders about critical issues and solutions, as well as marketing.

I love traveling, walking, hiking, rock climbing, fishing, and being in nature. The natural world is my happy place.

I have traveled to many countries around the world in the past, including North Korea, mostly for business.

I am a certified hiking guide in South Korea. I raise funds to support others, including young students in North Korea, by providing hiking guide service and Korean homestay service using the extra rooms in my house to travelers to the city of Seoul.

I also host Couchsurfing community members to support the mission of the community - sharing lives with others and fostering cultural exchange and mutual respect.

Although I have never been a couchsurfer myself, I do have much experience in hosting many couchsurfers from various countries.

I can host one person from the Couchsurfing community for a maximum of 3 nights, as available.

I prioritize hosting those whose travel to Korea is so special for different reasons from others.

I live in the city of Seoul with one of my daughters, who is in her 20s.

My house is located near the southwest tip of Bukhansan National Park and Bulgwang Station on subway lines 3 and 6 in Seoul.

If you love hiking and nature, my place could be a great place to stay.


I do not host smokers or anyone seeking a free stay without cherishing the mission of Couchsurfing, or, who get up after 8 am. or stay up past midnight.

I support sustainable travel -- less travel, less consumption, less waste for less carbon emission on the planet.
