Hi Nice to meet you 🙂 I’m Moonsun Kim. I’m living in yeouido, Seoul. I’m majoring in Hospitality and Tourism management at Sejong University.
I’m sociable but I’m a little shy in front of foreigners due to language.
But I want to break a language barrier with talking with you. Another reason why I apply for MYTM is that I want to make foreigner friends in order to make a good memory with you, keep contacting with you and let you know about Korea culture. So let’s be a good friend each other and make a valuable memory. I like shopping and looking for good restaurants. I’m sure that I can bring you a great restaurant in yeouido.
I like hanging out with friends everywhere so I can recommend nice places to enjoy your left travel in Korea. Thank you for your time.
P.S. I’m not really good at speaking English but I’ll have practiced hard speaking English until our meeting day. 😉
