Daniel Tudor is a writer, entrepreneur and former journalist from Manchester, U.K. After a short stint working in finance, he served as Korea Correspondent for The Economist from 2010-2013, where he reported extensively on North and South Korea. During this time he also published his first book, Korea: The Impossible Country, an introduction to South Korea for an international audience. He co-founded The Booth Brewing Company, Korea's first venture-funded craft beer firm, in 2013. Following that he returned to the UK and was involved in the early stages of web novel startup Radish Fiction, whilst also writing 'North Korea Confidential', a book which ultimately earned him threats from the Pyongyang regime (but very little in the way of royalties).
Between 2017 and 2018 Daniel worked as an advisor on the international press to the Moon Jae-in administration, and then set up Kokkiri, Korea's most popular meditation app, in 2019. He is a graduate of Oxford University (PPE) and Manchester University (MBA).
