I was born and grew up in two traditional villages in Korea (Andong Hahoe Village and Jeonju Hanok Village), where I discovered the joy of cross-cultural experiences. Outside of research, I seek to broaden my cultural horizons through traveling, reading books, and watching documentaries. You can find my list of recommended documentaries here. My ultimate dream is to visit every captivating city in the world!


If you have come here to help me, you are wasting your time. But if you have come because your liberation is bound up with mine, then let us work together. – Lilla Watson

Beloved community is formed not by the eradication of difference but by its affirmation, by each of us claiming the identities and cultural legacies that shape who we are and how we live in the world. – bell hooks

Caring for myself is not self-indulgence; it is self-preservation, and that is an act of political warfare. – Audre Lorde

Homeland is the legacy of the selflessness of our ancestors. Its concept extends beyond all geographical borders. It is not limited to those who are born in a specific place, nor does it abide by selfish nationalism. The patriotic feeling should merge with hope and the cry of the dispossessed, who aspire and fight for a better world without hatred. Homeland is the dignity and honor of those who know how to be deserving of it. – Jeronimo Lim Kim
