Looking for an activity group based in Busan
Printer-friendly version

I am looking for an organization that arranges group activites such as hikes, sightseeing, trips to festivals, etc.

I have familiarized myself with AdventureKorea and I was planning to do their mud festival trip, as well as a trip to Jeju next month, but they are based out of Seoul. I have to travel from Busan to Seoul to get to Daecheon or Jeju and then back to Busan from Seoul when each trip is finished and that doesn't make sense.

If anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated, especially because the Mud Festival and my summer vacation are quickly approaching!

Charles Jeong is a thief. He is a known scam artist. He is currently wanted by the police for fraud. I hope you did not give him any money. Do not send money to Lovable Busan. His real name is Changil Jeong and he is a con man who scams foreigners. He repeatedly gets away with his behavior because of the failure of foreigners to speak up.

I've never used the guy, but my friend took several trips with him and always spoke very highly of him?

Are you able to give more details on what he did exactly?

He has taken millions of won in deposits from foreigners and never paid them back or taken them on a trip. He owes many foreigners money for various trips. He has been wanted by the police since September 2011 because of his debts and fraudulent behavior. Do not trust him. Do not send him money. If you hear of him creating another travel group, please report him. Some foreigners have had good experiences with him and therefore will vouch for him, but they do not know the full story or have become too close to him to accept the facts of the situation.

Agreed. Charles Jeong is a thief. He took my money along with countless others. Do not believe all the hype.

The problem with Korea is there is no course of action to take against people like this. You can win in court and he still does not have to pay you. Buyer beware here in Korea. Speak up against this guy and stop the madness. Nothing worse than conman who can work with impunity.
