I was born in Busan, Republic of Korea (South). I spent most of my youth in the harbor city until I finished high school. Then I lived in Seoul (capital city of South Korea) for approximately ten years attended my undergraduate and graduate schools, and worked at two research institutes, except for 26 months of my military service period as a KATUSA (Korean Augmentation Troops to United States Army) in Dongducheon, Korea. While I was studying in MBA program, I met a woman of my life :). A couple of years later, we got married and moved to the U.S. for my further study. Now I have two lovely kids, Daniel and Evelyn. I enjoy fishing, baseball, tennis, and many other outdoor activities.
