What's your favorite food? Lobster Grilled Cheese from Ford’s Lobster in Noank, Connecticut.

If you could plan a week long dream trip, where would you go and what would it entail? My “wanderlist” grows everyday, but right now it would have to be Newfoundland. Being the first spit of land on North America to catch sunrise, I would scoop up a mountain bike for an morning ride; do some iceberg chasing along with whale watching; take in the music at their annual folk festival and end the week camping and climbing through Gros Morne National Park.


Name? Jinsuk Lee.

Where are you from?  Gangnam, Seoul, Korea.  Yes, Gangnam style's Gangnam.  It's a big area of Seoul with lots of great places and nice people.  Kind of like Manhattan. Go visit someday, it's awesome! :)

Where are you living now?  Edgewater, NJ.  This area used to be pretty industrial and was recently developed. When we first got to the US, my family and I moved here for the views of Manhattan!  We love it now.

What do you do?  Fixed Income portfolio manager at Korea Development Bank NY branch.  In short, I decide to buy or sell the right bonds at the right time timing, given the global economic forecast.


Best trip you have taken with your Alue sunglasses?  Newport, Rhode Island. It was my first trip with my Alues.  Beautiful place on a sunny day with a fresh sea breeze.

What's your favorite city?  San Diego. I like the laid back attitude.  Coming back to NYC afterwards was dizzying.

What is your dream trip?  A European trip full of museums.  I've been studying up on art history so that I'm ready.

What are your thoughts on K-pop? Haha, I love it, obviously!  I'm very proud of its recent dominance of the global music market.
