About Grace

Hello! I'm a Korean-Texan based in Seoul and a bilingual (Korean/English), freelance writer, fixer and translator. My work (print and video) has appeared in places like the the BBC, PRI, Dallas Morning News, Food52, CBS News, Newsday/amNewYork, Greatist and more. (I'm a generalist and have written about a multitude of topics, but especially love stories about food, diaspora, North Korea and identity.) If you need to speak to local sources or need live footage in Korea, I'll be able to hunt whatever you need down fast. I'm also available for remote reporting or translation tasks too.
