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.

โ€œThere 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.โ€
