My pen name Sumpul means “vine” in my local dialect. It doesn’t have any other significance other than the fact that I wanted something lush and green, but also something uncommon.
As for my self-introduction... hmm... I like webcomics, spicy things, and coffee.
HereLee is a play on a species of flower found only in Korea, hieori, or the Korean winter hazel (Corylopsis coreana). It also refers to myself being “here.” I hope that I can play even a small role in sharing uniquely Korean creative works in the way that the Korean winter hazel is unique to Korea.
