  • Music

    I enjoy to play the guitar and sing a song (as an amateur). I (luckily) got 2 prizes from competitions in my university. Twenties Dream in KAIST is my previous rock band.

  • Yoga/Meditation

    I had learned Yoga/Mediation for 5 years and sometimes taught students in Yoga Class.

  • Methods for Self-Development

    Many talented authors such as Stephen Covey, David R. Hawkins, Rhonda Byrne, Seung Heun Lee, and Milan Kundera, influenced me a lot. I believe that my research can contribute to provide a new way to get people motivated and make better world.
