My major is Korean History at the University of Seoul. I started my volunteer career that is about History culture in May 2016. Since then, I founded 'the History Culture Volunteer Team' in 2017. As a leader, I made plans about tours and have visited many historical sites in Seoul over 3 years. When I was an university student, I also created the 'global team program' which is the history culture exploring program with exchange students.

I enjoyed the walk along the wall and Marco was very friendly and helpful. I've definitely learnt more about Korean history during the trip. You will be able to see the city view from the wall and the resting area during the walk, especially during sunset time.
