Hi, I am Joon Young Kwon.

Being a polyglot fluent in Korean, Mandarin Chinese and Japanese, I am deeply interested in Northeast Asian international policy, economics and finance, and growing influence of the region.

Hence, I decided to run blog to offer news and analysis on East Asian current affairs and a variety of interesting topics.

If you have any questions or suggestions, please contact me through

I would love to connect and share you thoughts!
