Hey guys! My name is Lee and I’m from South Korea. I am a licensed tourist guide. I have lived in the capital city Seoul for almost all my entire life. My hometown is in Hongdae where I’d like to guide you. I’m very experienced and enthusiastic when it comes to traveling and guided tours. For the past 3 years, I’ve lived in New York and traveled to 33 other countries. It’s fascinating to learn about the new cultures and history and I have gathered many interesting facts about the countries I visited. My aim was to pass my travel experience onto you guys who want to visit and explore our amazing Korean culture and history.
