Baritone from South Korea, 32 years old
I was born in Seoul and studied at Yonsei University, then in Germany at the Hochschule für Musik, Karlsruhe with Donald Litaker and am currently at the Hochschule für Musik, Detmold with Susan Anthony.
I have made numerous concert appearances with the Hof Symphony Orchestra in Bavaria, and solo recitals in Brussels and Karlsruhe.
I received a DAAD Scholarship in 2011 and a Brahmshaus Scholarship in 2012.
I have taken part in a number of competitions. I reached the final of the 2011 Queen Elizabeth competition and in 2013 won third prize and the Mozart special prize at the Veronica Dunne International singing competition, and 2nd prize at the Gut Immling international singing competition.
I have made numerous concert appearances with the Hof Symphony Orchestra in Bavaria, and solo recitals in Brussels and Karlsruhe. Opera roles include Guglielmo Così fan tutte and Count Le nozze di Figaro, both in Seoul; the title role in Falstaff in Karlsruhe; and Zar in Kurt Weill’s Der Zar lässt sich photografieren in Munich.
Currently I am a member of the Young Artist programme at the Landestheater Detmold, where I have performed the roles of Montano Otello, First Nazarene Salome and Sarastro Die Zauberflöte.
In my spare time, I like to keep fit and particularly enjoy swimming.
