    Q&A

    Q: How do you feel being in the military?
    A: “I feel that being in the military is good, but we should always continue to improve. We should always constantly remind ourselves why we’re in the military, to serve and protect our country. If we continue to improve, I think Korea will have a better military.”

    Q: Why do you think Khaan Quest is important?
    A: “Khaan Quest is important because there aren’t many operations like this. It lets us learn about the other countries’ cultures, how they think, and how they work. This is also kind of a once in a lifetime opportunity for me too. This will help me improve and develop as an officer.”

    Q: How do you feel working with the other countries?
    A: “Since it’s my first time in Mongolia and Khaan Quest, it’s my first time actually interacting with these countries. I have drinks with them and we learn about each other. They have different views and cultures from Korea. It’s just a great experience learning from all of them.”
