About Sung

I am a Korean-English translator of literature, nonfiction, and advertising. I have called many places home, including South Korea, the US, Canada, and most recently Singapore. I’ve studied and worked in marketing but now that feels like another lifetime. Since 2013, my life has been translation. Or maybe all my life. I am a Smoking Tiger.
