Raphael Rashid

Raphael Rashid is a seasoned freelance journalist based in Seoul, South Korea, with a deep-seated expertise in Korean affairs. His academic background in Korean Studies, which he pursued at both the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) at the University of London and Korea University, has provided him with a nuanced understanding of the Korean peninsula, its language, and inter-Korean relations. Raphael's reporting has been pivotal in covering significant political events where he offered critical analysis on South Korean public opinion and the intricate dynamics of inter-Korea relations.

Before embarking on his career in journalism, Raphael honed his skills in the corporate world, working for three years at Korea's largest global public relations agency. During this time, he represented some of Korea's most influential companies, which allowed him to gain invaluable experience in Korea's corporate worklife and a unique perspective on the inner workings of chaebols—the large family-owned business conglomerates that have a significant impact on the South Korean economy.
