MorningCalm, the inflight magazine of Korean Air, is looking to hire full-time English editors. One, English section editor, and the other, English article editor.

MorningCalm has a wide network of top writers and photographers - many of our contributors also work for National Geographic Traveler, the New York Times, Conde Nast Traveler and Lonely Planet. English section editor also has the final word/final read on all English content in the magazine, working with English article editor that is in charge of the English versions of Korea-focused articles. We are looking for a native-English speaker, with a minimum of 2~3 years experience as a staff editor at a newspaper or magazine. A journalism degree is preferred. The ideal candidate will be a strong writer and editor, with a keen eye for photography. Previous experience in commissioning freelancers is a big asset.

The duties of the job include editing texts that have been translated from Korean, writing articles in English, pitching ideas for various sections of the magazine and proofreading all sections of the magazine. The ideal candidate will have a couple years of experience on the editorial staff at a newspaper or magazine, possess strong writing and editing skills, and have a strong work ethic, as the job can be quite demanding. Also, the ability to communicate clearly in Korean with our Korean editors and designers is important, as is experience with and understanding of Korean working culture.

Of course, there is potential for international and domestic research trips.

The job is at a publishing company called Seoul Munhwasa, located near Sinyongsan Station.
