Her PhD was funded by the TCD Ussher Fellowship and an Irish Research Council Postgraduate Scholarship, and she held an Early Career Research residency at Trinity Long Room Hub Arts and Humanities Research Institute. Prior to joining HKU, she worked as a visiting lecturer at Masaryk University, Brno.

Moonyoung specializes in modern drama, Irish literature, and postcolonial literature and theory. Her articles have appeared in Études Irlandaises, Contemporary Irish Literature Network, The Yeats Journal of Korea, and Comparative Drama (forthcoming, Fall 2022). She has also published opinion pieces with TheJournal.ie. Her research interests include everyday life studies, space and place, contemporary theatre and performance, and cross-cultural and global literatures.

She is currently working on turning her PhD thesis (“Theatre and Everyday Space: The Case of Tom Murphy”) into a book, and translating Tom Murphy’s plays into Korean. She is also co-editing a collection on the Irish pub, a multidisciplinary project exploring the significance of the pub in Irish society, culture, history, music, literature, tourism, and architecture (Cork University Press, 2023).
