I had worked for Gong-san elementary school in Mt.Palgong, Dae-gu city during 2009~2011. after working for this school for 3 years, I transfered to other elementary school near my house in Dae-gu.

This is my house in Dae-gu city. there are two rooms, a kitchen and living room and one bathroom in this house. I had contracted with the houseowner of this house that this house is exclusively for me from March 14th, 2010 to March 14th 2012 except for the ownership of this house and I could extend this contract if I want.
