Do it in Daegu is an independent site dedicated to exploring the city of Daegu and the entire Gyeongbuk Province. We showcase stories about history and tourism to inform expats living in the vicinity. These fun and informative stories will be your guide to Korean culture and history.
Hi there!! I'm Devon Furbush. For starters, I am fascinated by the Korean language. Since early 2012 I have been learning non-stop and it has taken me on a wild journey through cross-cultural relationships, 5+ years living in South Korea and traveling to all borders of the country (2013-2018), self-immersion, and now I am here as a translator!! My experience includes guiding exchange students studying at Angelo State University, consulting ESL students, volunteering at Korean festivals and events, and so much more.
I am the owner of The Nakdong, my location-independent translation company that I established in 2018. Want to hear something crazy? My business is actually registered in Estonia!! Estonia's world-class e-Residency infrastructure gives modern entrepreneurs the tools and resources to have a presence in the global market.
I have a passion for Korean history and tourism which can be seen on this website (I think I want to call it an online magazine) that is run through my translation company. For years I've had the idea of running my own online magazine/blog about Daegu. When I was living there I spent a lot of time joining activity groups sponsored by the city hall that focused on the tourism marketing sector. Then after spending a couple of years brainstorming how to make my own and when would be a good time to start, this project finally came to fruition in summer 2019.
