Jinbum is a fantastic host! He took us to a charming part of Seoul and gave us a wonderful tour around the many and various parts of the Hongdae neighborhood and took us to places that we would have discovered on our own explaining on the way the history of the neighborhood and the current trends. We highly recommend him!

Wow! I'm so happy I decided to get a tour around Hongdae with Jinbum, he went out of his way to make the experience truly enjoyable, he was so knowledgeable about Korean history and the area. I would not have enjoyed Hongdae as much as I did without his guidance. He asks you what your interests are and shows you places in the area related to these interests, something that would have been truly difficult to do on your own. Thank you so much Jinbum!!! I plan to go back several more times to Hongdae :)
