Girin

I'm a trilingual native Korean from Gwang-ju(South-west city). I love Seoul and its cultural advantages in fashion, literature, music, vintage markets and all kinds of un-useful but artsy, cool and exciting things. Very romantic at heart but also very practical as well. On the other hands, easy going and down to earth, friendly person who would put efforts to make your trip very personal, special and unforgettable. Looking forward to having great travel partners in Seoul
