MORE ABOUT ME

I was born in the beautiful city, Busan, Korea, 1982. At that time, I lived just near by Haewundae beach and I used to visit beach to catch crabs with bare hands. I've lived there until I went to university in Seoul and I settled down here in Daejeon for now. I am fond of traveling and thrive on adventure. One thing I recently got to attach myself is going autocamp. Everytime I have a chance, I try to go autocamp throughout South Korea to enjoy the beauties of nature. Besides this, I like cycling. Not only for taking a cycling tour sometimes, I usually go to school by my bicycle for 25kms (about 16 miles) everyday. (look at my records on runkeeper)

I'm living for a gulp of beer with people whom I love, having barbecue with a rustling wind in the camp, a sense of accomplishment when inventing things did not exist, first compiling without error, acceptance without rebuttal, and happiness for an exploration of unknown knowledge. :)
