Meeting point

About the host, "Seoyeon"

Hi ! ^^ My name is Seoyeon. I'm a reading counsellor and I am A MOTHER. I invite you to my house and my neighborhood. I'd like to introduce Korean culture and real local life. I do not have much experience traveling abroad but I'm curious about other culture and interested in meeting foreign friends and learn other culture and introduce Korean culture as well. Before, i used to invite some foreign students and cook Korean food at my place. And I have many good memories with the people that I'd' met that time. As a local host, I'd like to meet more people again and become a Korean mother to foreign friends who visit Korea. : )

  • PRETTY GOOD
    한국인이 저도 만들기 힘들었던 송편은, 외국인 친구들이 어찌나 잘만들어 내던지요 ㅎ 송편을 만들고 식사하는 자리도 좋았지만, 우리의 문화를 다른 나라 친구들에게 알려주는 시간이라 개인적으로 인상깊은 시간이 었습니다.

    Awesome! It was my first experience celebrate Lunar New Year in Korea. Seoyeon was really a good host and mom, she really welcoming us. We went to the market to buy the ingredient, we tried to made the Korean dumpling (만두),we tried the traditional game (윷놀이) and the most important thing is, we ate lot of Korean food. Everything was perfect for Lunar New Year Celebration! It was a good experience with local.
