Her voice, his playing – their combined talent will be what audiences undoubtedly focus on each time singer Hae Jung Han and pianist Seong Il Kim appear on stage together.
A graduate of the Daegu Arts University applied music department, Jung Han was once awarded the best prize of the solo section in a nationwide contest. This was in addition to the numerous accolades she received as a student. Awards aside, one of Jung Han’s passions is to promote barrier-free performing arts.
Her partner Il Kim, who majored in jazz piano at Baekseok University, also has numerous accolades to his name. One of the biggest prizes he has bagged is winning the King of King competition at the Grand Prix of the KBS National Disabled Personality Festival. In 2013, he received first prize at Korea’s The Sound Festival – his prize was a performing spot in the 10th anniversary Gold Concert for the disabled in Japan.
This duo is a force to be reckoned with.
