The Korea Post has recently appointed Kevin Kim as new Managing Editor of The Korea Post media, publisher of 3 English and 2 Korean-language media outlets established 34 years ago.
The Korea Post was inaugurated as a first-generation English monthly magazine in Korea in 1985 when English-language publications were so rare and hard to come by due to the relative short period of time of exposure to the outside world under the Japanese occupation of the under until the end of the World War II on Aug. 15, 1945.
The Korea Post was established by incumbent Publisher-Chairman Lee Kyung-sik after he had left The Korea Herald, the leading English daily in Korea, as its Cultural Editor following the seizure of the control of government by a coup carried out by the then Major General Chun Doo-hwan, who continued to rule the country thereafter as the President of the country.
The new managing editor, Kevin Kim, is expected to further develop, expand and improve the status of The Korea Post media and to be all the better accepted by by the English speaking peoples in all parts of the world. Kim was educated in the United Kingdom all the way through university. Here is his personal account:
Hi! I am Kevin Kim.
I was born in Korea and moved to the United Kingdom when I was 9 years old. My life so far has been full of challenges; having moved to a different country, culture and language I had to endure difficult times since a very young age.
This has greatly enhanced my adaptation skills and has given me an open mind to accept different thinking, mind and behavior. The move to England, the education system and my life in general has matured me culturally and as an individual. Having been in a boarding school for almost all my academic career I realized from a young age that I had to take responsibility in my actions both academically and socially. I believe that being Korean born and having experienced life in the UK, I have the best of both cultures.
I am hard-working, academically above average and have shown during my course and whilst at work, the ability to analyze and solve problems effectively, to communicate clearly and to complete complex tasks under pressure. I strongly believe in professionalism when it comes to work. I respect the people whom I work with and take pleasure in harmony between people. My ultimate aim of working is to develop real values with efforts and creativity.
