I’ve lived in Seoul for 55 years
I speak English, Korean
I am a Counselor, secretary
My name is Hyewon Moon and I am 55 years old. I was born in Seoul and have lived here my whole life. I like to travel, so I toured 10 countries in Western Europe, including the UK with my friends for a month. In Seoul, I would recommend the Seodaemun Prison, the Demilitarized Zone(DMZ), and the 123-story Lotte Tower to travelers. Because the three places symbolize 100 years of Korean history. About 100 years ago, Japan invaded Korea and took away the freedom of Koreans for 40 years. 70 years ago, Korea was divided due to an ideological war and became one of the poorest countries in the world. Now, Korea has developed economically, but Korea has a very sad history. So I want to tell them about the history of Korea properly. And the tour of Korean food will be interesting. From street food to Michelin-recognized food, Korean food is all healthy and good for dieting. Also, Korea is a shopping paradise. Korean fashion leads the trend, and Korean cosmetics are of high quality. I am sure that a trip to Korea will be a success if travelers experience history, food, and shopping. In addition, there are Myeongdong Shopping Street, Coex Shopping Mall, Namsan Hanok with old houses, Namsan Tower with beautiful night view, Gyeongbok Palace, Changdeok Palace, Deoksu Palace, and several modern art museums.
