Interview : Lifestyle with Wild Things 04

In autumn, when the cool breeze begins, I met people who have a special affection for nature and the outdoors at Wildthings, an outdoor brand.
Kang Min-gyu and So Eun-ji couple run a Japanese restaurant called <Tori> located in Pyoseon-myeon, Jeju Island.

Let's meet people who enjoy surfing while riding the waves in the summer and camping in Jeju with the sea as the background in the winter.

Q1. Please give a brief self-introduction.

Kang (Mingyu Kang) Hello. I am Minkyu Kang who enjoys surfing and cooking.
So (So Eunji) Hello. Eunji So enjoys various outdoor activities such as hiking, surfing, and riding.

Q2. I heard that both Mingyu-nim and Eunji-nim are not from Jeju Island. Was there a special occasion that led you to live in Jeju?

Kang) Rather than a special opportunity, I came to Jeju Island with a light heart to play because I just liked the nature and sat down...
S) So do I. Originally, I came to live in Jeju for a month, but now I have settled in Jeju.

Q3. Were both of you originally in the restaurant business?

river) Yes. I was originally a culinary major, so I was cooking before coming down to Jeju Island.
SO) I worked in the human resources department of a company, so I wasn't in the food service business. I think I became interested in cooking after coming to Jeju Island.

Q4. Since the restaurant opens in the evening, I heard that you usually surf before opening time. I'm curious about what the two of you think about the charm of surfing.

Kang, So) We both love nature, and I feel at ease when I see the wonders of Mother Nature.
I think the biggest attraction of surfing is that it is a sport that can be enjoyed with nature.
