Thirteen years ago this month, Kim Chang-dae started the Seoul Hiking Club with one intention: to share the beauty of mountains around Korea with foreigners. What surprised Kim was the lifelong friendships he has made with people from around the world.
One of the most important friendships of his life was made through the club. Kim counts Danish-Korean Christian Rhee as one of his closest friends. The two often have dinner and Kim helped Rhee start his own business in Seoul.
