“Do you want to travel with a passionate Korean? Then, call me right now!” HI, GUYS!!! My name is Minji Choi from Korea. I’m 22 years old now. I do a double major in Chinese and tourism. I really like meeting new people and experiencing new things. Last year, as an exchange student I went to China and there I met many different friends. With them, I traveled a lot of places and had a lot of good memories. Based on my memories, this time I want to be your good memory and your good friends while traveling Korea. So, why don’t you travel with me? I always wait for your message 🙂
