John Kang


I write and edit stories, research for rich lists and 30 Under 30, and also update Forbes Asia’s Facebook and Twitter accounts. I was born in Korea but grew up in Hong Kong. I’m currently studying a master’s in business and financial journalism at The University of Hong Kong, where I also did my bachelor’s in English. Previously, I worked at Hong Kong’s leading English-language daily newspaper the South China Morning Post. You can follow me on Twitter @johnhjkang and email me at
