Another Korean Genius Kid (Check This Out)

Hey guys. Hope all is well back home. One of the things that keeps me going over here is my beautiful Korean students. They come in all shapes and sizes, and always have black hair and dark eyes. However, now I think that all Americans look alike. Seriously. I can spot out one of my students a mile away. It just shows you that that universal "observation" is false. Trust me. I'ts so weird, but I just love this race.

The other day, we had a Monsoon. I went to the market to buy some fruit for some lunch. When I walked in, the owner actually "towelled" me off, patted my head dry, and offered me his own jacket (which I refused).
I can't really say that I know that that would happen in New York.

Anyway, I wanted to show you the type of kids I'm teaching. The ELITE. The ones that have parents who make so much money that they send them to Tae Kwon Do, Piano, Guitar, English Academy, and Computer Academy in the same day......

Given this blessing of money and education, some of, and most of these kids are real Gems. They actually tell me they would rather study than play, and most of them don't have regular friends to play with because their parents make them study on the weekends too. Hence- Chris Teacher's snack parties everyday and fun games to play for a prize which has successfully landed the name of "American Gum." They actually would kill each other for Trident gum. I've seen it

Here is a YouTube post of a 12 year old Korean "Prodigy" playing acoustic guitar to U2. I think it may sound better than the band would have hoped. Trust me. Check it out. It's beautiful and brilliant, and just played perfectly.
