  • Yang HyeonKyung양현경 - Snow Falls눈이 내리면
    on Dec 24, 2010 in Music
    On this Christmas morning I am reminded of my first months in Korea. I was rather destitute when I first came here. I had recently graduated college and had basically sacrificed everything to complete my degree in music. Anyone who knows me knows I a...
  • China believes South Korea "Drunk with Patriotism"
    on Dec 23, 2010 in News
    The Dong A-Ilbo filed a report citing several quotes from Chinese newspapers. Including the line Beijing “has its means” if Seoul does not listen to its advice. China is obviously not happy with the South Korean military drills. Interestingly the...
  • Christmas Tree Propaganda along the DMZ
    on Dec 21, 2010 in News Ramblings
    I am beginning to believe that Korea does not want to be reunited. The North firmly believes that that progress will only happen when the North and South deal with each other directly. The South doesn't seem to want to have a conversation unless othe...
  • Korean Muscle Flexing
    on Dec 20, 2010
    Today was an interesting day here in Korea. The South Korean Government announced that it would hold its planned live fire drills on Yeonpyeong Island. For the first time since I have been here the locals seemed on edge. I admit, I was as well. In my...

    on Dec 19, 2010 in Reunification

    Three days ago I received an email from the U.S. Embassy in Seoul. It is the first such email I have received in nearly three years of living in South Korea. Rather than explain it I have just copied it here:The U.S. Embassy in Seoul is transmitting...
  • The Story of Cupid
    on Dec 16, 2010
    I now understand why playwrights surrounded themselves with a troupe of actors. Knowing who is to perform a written work somehow makes it easier to generate. I hereby take credit for writing The Witchdoctor and Cupid. I am well aware that they are no...
  • The Witchdoctor
    on Dec 15, 2010 in Classroom
    My school is having us put on some short skits this year. The children were initially not enthused. I have done my best to come up with some fun ideas for them. Here is a video from our second read though of The Witchdoctor. I am trying so hard to en...

    I recently Installed Finale on my computer!! This is my first musical composition in a few years. The piece is intended as a short lullaby. It is very simple and takes no risks. The photos are from Jeollabukdo and Jeollanamdo. Piano, Flute, and Cello...
  • Music That I've Never Heard
