Howon Jung is our intern from South Korea. He is responsible for most of the photographs we have presented from our Southern Utah conventions blog slam. He and Craig Axford drove me around today as Utah State Democratic Party State and County leadership traveled from Iron to Kane County.
Q. If you lived in America and choose to affiliate politically which Party would you affiliate with?
Yes, he was joking.
After our laugh he told me that he would definitely be a Democrat.
He was born in Daegu, the third biggest city in South Korea, but now lives Seoul, the largest City in South Korea. He is a student at Yonsei University in the middle of Seoul. After graduation Howon wants to find a job as a international journalist.
Something else he feels is relevant is that he has no girlfriend.
When asked what he felt was a relevant discovery from his trip to Utah he answered by explaining that South Korea only has National government, but its different. He is very interested in how state government works.
Howon was also intrigued by the discussions on public education and asked Senator Pat Jones for a copy of her speech explaining that he found her information on public education quite interesting.
Howon seemed to enjoy the trip from Salt Lake to Southern Utah and mentioned that he was most intrigued by the "red rock" we saw on our way to Kanab.
We very much enjoyed Howon's company on our latest convention tour of Southern Utah, and we have also appreciated his diligent work at Utah Democratic Party Headquarters.
Any potential girlfriends can apply at firstname.lastname@example.org but be aware that Howon is already half way through his three month stay.
