Kahlid Elijah Tapia built his award winning acting career in Seoul, South Korea. He turned the aspect of aspiring actor on its head by utilizing an overseas film industry as more than a stepping stone, but a staircase of opportunity.
By breaking through the proverbial "glass ceiling" with big-picture thinking, he connected with directors in the foreign film community, networked at Korean film festivals, received actor training in multiple Asian countries, studied Korean, secured the real-estate of his online presence, and created "The Actor's Guide To Overseas Success."
As an English teacher of 7 years, teaching Korean students from elementary to business levels, he used this avenue to subsidize his acting career. But opportunity knocked & sharing knowledge became a passion, so he weekly provides strategies for actors to train, network and thrive in an overseas film industry via #THESEOULBROTHA Blog - http://kahlidelijahtapia.com/blog.
He's known for Jojakdwen Doshi (2017), Gamgi (2013), & Spy: The Undercover Operation (2013).
All three films hit #1 in the Korean Box Office.
Oh...and he is a speaker of Korean, who enjoys pasta, scuba diving, and Muay Thai!
