Qué harás

I am very excited to host a trip for those history and Korea lovers! Take the opportunity to discover Korea for a depth of knowledge you will later take pride in :-)

For my trip, I'd like to cover the topics below:
- Contemporary Korean history: Major events that happened about 100 years ago
- The chaotic period that forced transition and transformation
- Geopolitical dynamics of East Asia and survivorship of Korea
- Colonialism/imperialism of Japan and other empires


Here are some of the key questions I intend to address during the trip:
- What were Korea's effort and strategy to survive the adversities?
- What drives yearnings for independence?
- How did Westernization and its values impact on Korea's independence?
- How was Japanese colonialism similar with/different from others?

*If you have watched K-drama "Mr. Sunshine" this trip will serve you as a knowledge booster.
** If you are multiple guests and hope to visit at times other than allocated slots, I am open to change my time and day schedule.

I am a history lover who wants to exchange the knowledge of Korean history with those who love to discover the defining moments of Korea in its contemporary settings.

While I was born, raised in Seoul Korea for over 20 years, deeply ingrained in the Korean culture, I also raised bilingual skills and a bicultural perspective studying abroad in the US for almost a decade. I am confident in sharing the history in the deepest knowledge insiders can garner but with a foreigner's approach to it.

This experience was one of the best things I did on my short visit to Seoul. Won has obviously put a lot of thought, time, and energy into crafting a comprehensive tour explaining the story of Korea’s independence. We were lucky, in that no one else signed up for the tour, so we got Won all to ourselves for the 3+ hour tour (yes, he extended by a few minutes to make sure we got through everything!). He was very receptive to our questions and had good answers to all of them, even when they veered a bit off topic. I left feeling like I had a much better understanding of the country and the region than I had coming in. The wonderful interaction didn’t end when we parted ways. Not only did Won follow up with a link to more information about a topic on which he wasn’t able to answer some of our more obscure questions, but he also helped us find a fried chicken place near our hotel to eat at for lunch - something that was on our Seoul bucket list, but that we had been having trouble doing on our own! I can’t recommend this tour highly enough. Make it the first thing you do when you get to Seoul; it’ll give you a great foundation on which you can build the rest of your site seeing!

Won is knowledgable about Korean history and especially the historical background in the 1800s and 1900s. We walked through several historical landmarks and they are all conveniently located in the same neighborhood. Won is an organized and prepared host with good time management. He was able to tell me the stories thoroughly and clearly along the history timeline and gave me some local perspectives as a Korean. I would recommend any traveler who would like to discover Seoul's past and present and join this interesting storytelling walk with Won!

I am very satisfied to take this tour. This tour gave me an in-depth understanding about Korea: how the Korea 100 years ago made its way toward the national independence and the storng Korea now. Some part of the tour was fun, some breathtaking, and others heartwarming and soothing. Won is an excellent storyteller and knows how to deliver a message that resonates with the audience. Def recommend!

It was an inspiring, memorable experience having Won as my history tour guide. Won was very friendly, knowledgeable and professional (and funny!). The tour was well-prepared and original in a sense that Won shared a lot of insights about Korea's recent history and they changed how I perceive and feel about history. The Korea's independence story will be something stuck in my heart for a while- Thanks again for the amazing experience!
