We miss Ki-Bum. And, we miss his music--a lot!
You know how listening to your kid practicing the piano can start grating on your nerves after awhile? But you don't say anything, because you know that practice makes perfect? Well, we NEVER felt that way about Ki-Bum's guitar practicing! Ever! There was just something about his music that was relaxing and enjoyable. Always. Even when we'd heard the same song over and over again. I think it's because he's a virtuoso. One of the best. And, I really do mean that!
Ki-Bum was a student at a local college here (studying English) for one year, and then he applied and was accepted into the well-known, tough-to-get-into, Berklee College of Music in Boston! They sent a team all the way to Seattle to interview him and listen to him perform before he was even considered as a candidate for admission. I feel as proud of him as though he were my own flesh and blood son! So you can imagine his Korean parents are that proud of him too, and more!
After he finishes his degree, Ki-Bum plans to go back to South Korea and teach music and guitar in a college in Seoul. I have no doubts he'll be successful! He's a virtuoso, after all.
