Auteur et concepteur né à Paris en 1967, Stéphane Mot privilégie les formats courts et décalés pour ses chroniques comme pour la fiction. Avant 'Seoul Villages', sa première collection consacrée à Séoul, il a concocté une série de bouchées au goût étranges ('dragédies') et un hommage aux légendes du football n'ayant pas eu la chance d'exister ('La Ligue des Oubliés'). Cet observateur de la société coréenne intervient dans de nombreux médias internationaux ainsi que dans son blog, fondé en 2007.

Stéphane et Séoul se hantent mutuellement depuis 1991.
