What does SEOUL mean to you?
Many find that they enjoy sharing their favourite things with the people they love; the more people share, the closer they feel to one another.
We asked the Inspire Me Korea Team about the different things they love from Korea, and especially what they love sharing with Inspire Me's. Let's get to know the hard-working team behind Inspire Me Korea's unique content!
Where are you favourite places in South Korea?
"My favourite place in Korea is Ihwa Mural Village in Seoul. It is my perfect afternoon to wander in the sun looking at beautiful art" - Joanna, Designer
"I love the independent bookstores, the winding stone alleys and backstreets, the murals, museums, hanok cafes and palaces" - Claudia, Project Manager & Content Creator
Which parts of Korean culture or experiences do you love sharing with Inspire Me's the most?
"I love showing the secret, lesser-known places, like little alleyways, boutique shops and sunsets in the city or by Han River. I like the small details and the mood, I want to transport Inspire Me's to that moment too and share the atmosphere and what it really feels like to be there." - Diana, Co-CEO
"I love ramyun and Yukgaejang (spicy beef soup with vegetables). When I served in the military, I remember eating this dish whenever I felt tired." - Hyun, Cultural Editor
"I love sharing anything music or food related. I believe music and food are great ways of connecting people across cultures and were the two things that personally got me interested in Korean culture. Getting to share what inspired me with others is such a fulfilling experience!" - Cynthia, Social Media & Marketing Assistant
"Food! My favourite food is Korean BBQ and kimchi fried rice!" - Jin, Cultural Editor
