    I am not surprised at all.S Korea loves classical music You go to a concert and all you see young people listening in a total silence with respect for the musicians and the soloists.
    Concerts are about 120 per month!!!! Only in Seoul!
    Our cleaning lady has a daughter that is a future conductor,studying in Europe Hotels,supermarkets,banks,wherever you go you are surrounded by classical music.I think this is the perfect atmosfere for the future aspiring musicians.Get inspired!

    One suspects that western music to many S Koreans is an” exotically ” delightful experience but not at all
    received aesthetically in the same way as might a western audience .
