Lee Hyun-jin, a 30-year-old swimming instructor, has attracted over 192,000 subscribers to her YouTube channel "Lovely Swimmer", which offers tips for those learning the sport.
Lee started swimming when she was in second grade in elementary school, choosing the sport because she believed it carried less risk of injury. She won a medal at a competition in her neighborhood, and swam competitively throughout her middle and high school years. She went on to major in leisure studies at Dankook University, and began coaching in her freshman year.
Lee started making videos to help her students understand and learn techniques easily. The response was so positive that she bought an underwater camera and started uploading her videos on YouTube in 2014.
Subscribers to her channel appreciate being able to view swimming techniques in a detailed way. Many say it's easier than learning from a coach in a pool.
She is especially proud of her video tour of swimming pools around the world. "I've been touring swimming pools in different countries such as Australia, Switzerland, Vietnam and the U.K. I also upload a lot of reviews of swimming suits, which get good reviews", she said. Lee currently runs a sports club with 30 members, and her goal is to enhance her channel to give it wider global appeal.
"I'm also thinking about how to make swimming videos that are usable by blind and deaf people. It's a fulfilling mission that I got to discover through YouTube".
