PASSIONATE ROLLING KOREA
Greetings! We are the co-founders of Rolling Korea, Jae-Jun Yeon and Jun-Mi Lee. We met in Yonsei University and started the business together. We founded the company with our visions in language institution and the understandings of foreign cultures based on our own experiences. We’ve been focusing on the entertainment spectrum of our curriculum for the most effective learning experience. We’ve built the one and only entertainment program that incorporates K-pop as well as various cultural experience opportunities and travel guides. Rolling Korea will continue to work hard to provide special experiences for students.

Rolling Korea Co-Founder
Since my childhood, I’ve been experiencing many cultures in different countries with my father, a Korean diplomat. I can’t forget the thrill when I encountered foreign cultures and I’m very proud to make a career out of it. Regardless of the language barrier, I’ve been trying to spread and introduce Korean cultures such as the traditions, K-pop, the food, etc. With the co-founder and my wife, Jun-Mi Lee, we assist our students to have a fulfilling experience in Korea as if they are our family. I want to thank my wife for her devoted love and care for our students.

Rolling Korea Co-Founder
Since the young age, I’ve been interested in foreign languages and cultural exchanges and started Rolling Korea with my partner Jae-Jun Yeon. We wanted to build an institution where students can have a pleasant time along with the language education. We began our first class with three students and today, I’m very pleased to see dozens of students going through Rolling Korea. We will always do our best to make the place where there are sincere communications and connections with our dear students. Your dreams come true at Rolling Korea!
Q. What made you start Rolling Korea?
My partner and wife, Jun-Mi Lee, and I founded Rolling Korea in 2012 when K-pop was going viral. We wanted to create a space where we can integrate the interests in Korean culture and the Korean language to introduce them to a wider population.
Q. What is the goal of Rolling Korea?
Our goal is to provide various cultural experiences. Language is a start of a learning Korean culture and we want to introduce different sides of Korea. Our programs provide both traditional and new Korea.
Q. Do you feel worthwhile doing this?
I feel very proud to introduce Korea as a cultural organization and I love seeing students growing their interests in Korea. I am very thankful and proud of the opportunity.
Q. What makes Rolling Korea unique?
We don’t just settle on the Korean language classes. We provide education through various cultural activities. We have field trips where we play games and students can incorporate what they’ve learned in the classroom to real-life situations.
Q. When do you feel rewarded?
The biggest reward is when students tell us they’ve grown their love for Korea through our programs. Sometimes they even say that they want to be Korean which leaves me very satisfied and to feel proud of my job.
