About the author

Born in 1981. I am a heart patient, a surgeon, and a civil servant. I graduated from Korea University College of Medicine, Department of Medicine and received a master’s degree from the same graduate school.

After that, I started an IT startup and pioneered a new area of medical service using smartphones.

The name my father gave me means ‘connecting health’. It contains the only hope for a son born with heart disease. And that hope is now leading to a life that ‘continues health’ for yourself and others.

“There are many different doctors in the world. Each of them is good at different fields. In the future, if someone asks me what doctor is good at, I would like to answer that I am the doctor who can best understand the patient’s situation. My first challenge is from patient to doctor. My second challenge was to go back to the patient’s eye level.”
