About the Homestay
I started hosting homestays in 2013 and have proudly risen to become one of the top hosts at Korea's largest homestay matching company, a status reflected in the photo. Out of 9,650 Korean homestays, I'm thrilled to hold the position as one of the six recipients of an esteemed A+ rating, maintaining my standing as a best host in 2024.
I'm eager to meet new friends from around the world through this platform. My family includes a kind husband, a son born in 2010, and a daughter born in 2013. While my English isn't fluent, my experiences living in the Philippines and Australia allow me to empathize with tourists and foreign students.
My apartment boasts four rooms and two bathrooms. I offer 1-3 rooms and 1 bathroom to foreign guests. Each room includes a spacious window, comfortable bed, fresh linens, ample closet space, a desk, and a chair. As a Korean language teacher, I can assist those interested in learning Korean.
All guests are welcome in my home, but I have a preference for the following:
* Regular users of Seoul Metro's line 3
* Students from Yonsei University or Ewha Womans University
* Those interested in enjoying Korean meals regularly
* Travelers exploring Seoul who prioritize convenient public transport, safety, and tranquility
* Families and individuals who adore children
Sometimes in the mornings, I take guests to nearby tourist spots, historical sites, or museums. It's free, so I'd appreciate it if you could spare some time at least once. I usually share stories about the Joseon Dynasty and modern history with guests while visiting landmarks. However, I can adjust the travel itinerary to suit your interests
When making a reservation inquiry, it would be great if you could show your picture if possible.
Thank you immensely for your consideration, and I eagerly await the opportunity to host you soon!
Wishing you a fantastic trip!

About the Area
My house is situated in the tranquil western part of central Seoul, offering a serene and safe environment. During the summer, the air is clear and cool, surrounded by lush forests where you can enjoy the delightful songs of birds throughout the day.
Located just a 50-minute drive from the airport, my house is conveniently accessible. The nearest bus stop is a short 6-minute walk away, providing access to various bus routes. On foot, you can explore nearby attractions such as the Yeongcheon traditional market, Seodaemun Independence Park, and Ansan Observatory. Additionally, there's a beautiful and renowned walking path surrounding my house.
Yonsei University, Ewha Womans University, and Gyeongbok Palace are all within 3 kilometers from my home. Easily reachable within 5~10 minutes by bus and metro. For your convenience, a nearby corner hosts the nearest convenience store, while Muakjae Station or Dongnimmun Station offers a variety of restaurants. I'd be delighted to recommend delicious eateries and local attractions.
Three-fourths of South Korea is mountainous. Like some houses, schools, and museums, my home is also situated on a mountain. If you enjoy a bit of light exercise, staying at my home will undoubtedly satisfy you. However, please note that my home may not be suitable for those who prefer to avoid light physical activity.

The perfect place to make home, however temporary. Sujin and family welcomed me into their home, and kitchen. My room was spacious, clean and most importantly the bed was comfortable. Walking distance to everything you could need, including subway station and bus stops. I will be requesting to stay again on my next visit to Korea.
it was a great experience.
Sujin is a great host. She guided me and helped me. I felt at home in her house.
I am looking forward to be able to visit again.
I would recommend this homestay anytime.
Sujin is such a warm host. Her breakfasts are more than food. It’s the experience of sharing a meal with her, other guests and family. We felt like at home. She helped us also finding a taxi to the airport and even offering shelter to my daughter to make our departure easier. I can’t even express how thankful we are. We will choose her home again when we come back. Definitely!!!!
I stayed with Sujin and her family for four nights, and it was an unforgettable experience. Sujin is a very warm and welcoming person. She and her family are kind and generous, and want you to have an authentic experience of Seoul. I loved getting to know the real Korea, discussing the country over breakfast and dinner, and feeling part of the family. Sujin and I also went on a great hike in the nearby hills, where the views were breathtaking. We had several long chats about Korean society, and I really feel like I learned a lot. Thank you Sujin and family. I highly recommend a homestay at her place! :D
Definitely recommend Sujin and her family for Homestaying! I spent such a great time in Seoul thanks to them, especially Sujin who made sure that I had everything that I needed and who helped me a lot. I very much enjoyed going to hike with her, thank you so much 이모
Sujin is a caring and welcoming person. As it was my first time in Korea, I felt safe to live with her family. The children are nice and helpful! I recommend this home stay!
Very Polite, wonderful memories
We appreciate the time we spent together with Sujin and all the friendly little chats we had with her amazing family. We had a whale of a time during our stay there, even though it was a short one but without a shadow of a doubt, we will certainly come back again. She provided invaluable help in us navigating our way through the colossal city and it means the world to us. She makes every effort to welcome her guests at her home with open arms and we give thanks for it. To top it off, It was refreshing to be met with such hospitality after our long journey. We are grateful for every kind act she and her family did for us!!
Thanks to Sujin, I could spend a short but fruitful time. She introduced me to a new place, famous food, lots of Korean dishes served at home. As she talked about many social situations in Korea, I wanted to stay more to get to know real life in Korea. I will surely come back to you when I come again. Thank you for your full-hospitality mind.
