North Korea

Kum Chon was born and raised in Pyongyang, but also spent some of his formative teenage years abroad in the United Kingdom. He returned home and graduated from the Pyongyang University of Foreign Studies, concentrating in English language. He then worked in trade and commerce in Pyongyang, helping translate between English and Korean, before moving over to tourism management and guiding for specialized projects last year. He’s extremely linguistically and culturally fluent in English, and is both incredibly intellectual as well humorous- his laugh can be heard from a mile away. He has a vibrant personality and is eager to learn and help wherever possible.
