What does the “Spirit of GS” mean to you?    

It's my way of life. Everything must have an end if there is a beginning. If it's not over, no matter how hard it is, don't give up. Do my best until the end.
 Even if it's over.

Complete the sentence: "For me, a week without my motorbike ..."    

For me, a week without my motorbike means undergoing surgery or recovering at the hospital.

What is your favourite trail?

The trail (I want to ride the most) is from Mount Halla at the southern end of the Korean peninsula to Mount Baektu at the northern end of the Korean peninsula. But now I can't go. Because my country is divided into South and North Korea. I want to ride my GS someday at that trail. At that time, I would like to ride through the beautiful Korean peninsula during the Int. GS Trophy with my international friends.
