Ooops - something went wrong


  1. Im a Korean Freediving Instructor Joe.

    Many Korean ‘Haenyo(that mean is Sea Women)’ lives around east and south sea of Korea still now. not only Jeju Island.

    and many Haenyo are hate scuba and freediver. because that think divers are catch fishes and shells.
    so that they block to the entrance for the sea and fighting with divers.
