What are you passionate about?
I love learning something new, keeping my self-research/study mode on. Also, small daily routines that take my stress away. Heading to the gym after work and watching YouTube on Chromecast before going to bed.
What sports star would you most like to meet?
As a huge soccer fan, I would love to meet Zinedine Zidane. I have so much respect for his fantastic career, as both a player and a coach. His retirement at the peak of his career was unforgettable.
What are your favorite books/movies?
Book: Catcher in the Rye
All-time #1 life lesson book for me. The first year in boarding school coming from Korea, I felt like emotions around Holden was reflecting myself. Highly recommended to all teenagers studying away from home having a hard time in a new environment.
I just get goosebumps every time I watch this film. It always triggers me to be creative about what would happen in the next 10 years.
