Such sad news. I remember his postings from several years ago before I went to Korea for the first time. He always seemed to have something worthwhile to add to the discussion. Condolences to his family and friends.

This may be an inappropiate question, but does anyone know how old he was?

Jongno Guru gently schooled me in board etiquette back when i first joined.


without a doubt he was the funniest and probably the kindest poster.

I gave away my autobike in 2004 after a colleague of mine was killed on a bike in Cheongju.


RIP Guru

That is really sad news... I've always enjoyed reading his posts on this forum. Never met the chap, but felt like I really knew him.

Supposedly looked like he was 68 but sure wrote like a fresh, young, strong hearted 28 year old. No old man.
