The Most Trusted Mentor for Korean Women

Many Korean women wish to meet MK, and when they do, they move to tears and say, “Your stories were what made me muster up my courage when I was down and out.


” The reason why so many women have faith in and depend on MK is that her life was not different from theirs. Born as the second daughter of a small boutique in the countryside, MK had to seek herself out ever since she was young, without the help of her parents. After majoring in composition and making her living out of a small piano academy, she came up with the dream of becoming an instructor at the age of 29 and started changing her life. Many women were inspired as they witnessed an ordinary, unwealthy mother of three children dramatically change her life as she pursued her dream. Taking up new challenges even in her mid-fifties, MK is a role model and the most reliable female mentor.

Chairperson of the Board of Directors of

Growmom Corporation, a Support Group for Single Moms


MK loves and respects single mothers the most, as they have mustered their courage twice in situations ordinary women do not necessarily need to; they chose to give birth to their children instead of abortion, and they chose to raise the children on their own instead of putting them up for adoption.


And MK holds a firm philosophy, “the single moms who made bold choices should be given more opportunities and be treated better by the society.” For this reason, MK founded an NGO named Growmom in 2016 and provided supports to approx. two hundred single moms such as counseling, education and books and other goods for the mothers and the children. In 2017, Growmom hosted a fashion show dedicated to single moms for the first time in Korea, where ten single moms walked down the runway as models alongside celebrities. To Korean single moms, MK is the ‘big sister.’

MK is 100% Korean, with zero experience studying abroad: no wonder she found it difficult to talk with foreigners in English. But that was only until two years ago, when she declared in her mid-50s that she would take up a new challenge. ‘I want to communicate and share my stories with people all around the world in foreign language.’ And two years later, from 2019, MK started giving lectures and interviewing foreign authors in English. And her books are available at Kindle store. MK launced Vietnamese Facebook page and YouTube channel, and also opened MKKIM, an English-only global channel. On BTS SKOOL clips which explain how BTS successfully made their way into the global market, overseas Armies are commenting in English and agreeing with MK’s stories.

The emergence of global platforms such as YouTube or Facebook is facilitating trans-border content distribution, through which MK was able to share her special wisdom in life with not only the Koreans and the Asians, but also with the bigger audience around the world. Also, as the host of a YouTube channel with one million subscribers, she is inclined to serve her role as an intermediary in introducing valuable foreign content or foreign celebrities and authors with unique stories to Korea.
