Driven, Global, and Professional
The co-founders are two young Koreans passionate about the tourism industry. After years of experience in both business and leisure travel, we wanted to reshape tourism with a fresh, vibrant perspective.
Born in Korea and raised in France, Sky has over 8 years of experience in the tourism industry both in France and Korea. After 4 years of working in the incoming tourism business and on over a hundred events (MICE and Leisure), she decided to take the next step by opening her own agency and introduce a more dynamic and creative way of travelling to and around Korea. Aside from her international background and experience as well as fluency in three languages (English, French, and Korean), Sky is able to understand and analyze her client’s needs. Her managerial skills, years of know-how, and ambition are focused around building Danim Travel to become the leading, customer-centric DMC and MICE agency of Korea.
Howon has been passionate about traveling since a very young age and spent much time backpacking around the world. When he realized that backpacking around Korea wasn’t easy, he decided to work in a youth hostel in Seoul for a couple of years to get hands-on industry experience. In 2011, he decided to head back to his hometown, Daegu, to develop the city’s local tourism industry. Initially, it was a big challenge; however, Howon has undoubtedly stirred up a positive change in Daegu. It steadily grew to become one of the most active cities in the MICE industry. Currently, Howon owns a chain of guesthouses called Danim Backpackers.
