YouTube Video: Korean Guy Sings “Christmas” Song – in English! (By Moses Yoon)

(By Moses Yoon) Everybody knows that if English is not your primary language, one typically becomes self conscience about how he/she sounds when attempting to speak English. However, I’d like to share a YouTube video of a Korean man who obviously is in the Christmas spirit – he sings “All I Want for Christmas” in English – and most certainly is not self conscience about his accent.

It’s a humorous video, highlighting a Korean man’s English accent while singing a popular “Christmas” song. I don’t know if the Korean man shot the video himself or not. More than likely, it was somebody else who used the video and displayed the humorous text to go along with him singing this song.  Of course, I got a good chuckle out of this video.

After watching the video, I came to a simple conclusion. The Korean man obviously shot a video of him singing this song in broken English – and I’m pretty sure that he is quite aware of his broken English. Hey, let’s give this guy some credit for putting himself out there like this. Bravo! [Read more...]

Konnect Magazine Interviews Philadelphia Orchestra Concert Master David Kim

(By Moses Yoon and David Kim) Konnect Magazine had the privilege of interviewing Philadelphia Orchestra concert master David Kim. He is an incredible violinist and a product of Philadelphia. To view his wonderful talents, please view the embedded video!

Q: At what point in your early life did you realize that you were going to make music your career?
I started playing the violin when I was 3 years old.  But I really made my decision to make violin my life when I was 8.  That’s when I began studies with the teacher whom I would end up staying with through and beyond graduate school – Dorothy DeLay. “Miss DeLay” produced some of the greatest violinists of our lifetime including Midori, Gil Shaham, and Sarah Chang.

Q: How many hours a day are you practicing your violin?
Most days, I have at least 2.5 hours of rehearsal with my orchestra, not to mention an evening concert.  On top of that, I may do another 1 to 2 hours.  In terms of non-orchestral practice, it is very erratic.  If I have a big solo appearance to prepare for or a large symphony to learn, I can practice up to 4 hours or so.  But if I am on vacation, I can go a few days without touching the instrument.

We owe our biggest thanks to all our friends and supporters, but particularly we want to thank Danny Kwon Mksn and his wonderful wife Monica for really taking it upon their shoulders to have us play at JAMA. They have been one of the strongest supporters of our ministry, and we have been fortunate enough to grow a strong bond with them over the past few years. They are truly godly and amazing people who point their lives to Christ. [Read more...]

After 2pm: The Highly Publicized Jay Park Redemption Story

(By David Kim) On September 5, 2009 a post from a MySpace account belonging to then 2pm member Jay Park was revealed. The post mentioned about a comment Jay made about his struggles in Korea and some of the frustrations that took place. The public somehow found out about it and it was leaked all over the internet media. It created a huge controversy and it ended up in Jay leaving the #1 Korean boy band, “2pm”. Many fans were outraged by the controversy and some even questioned Jay’s motives. [Read more...]
