A journalist-turned diplomat, Sohn served as a presidential foreign press secretary and minister for cultural affairs at the Korean Embassy in Paris.
In 2014, he was named Chevalier de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres -- Knight of the Order of Arts and Letters -- by the French government in recognition of his contribution to the Korea-France cultural ties. 

In 2015, he was a member of the Korean government delegation to the opening of the Year of Korea in France.
