Yay he’s on the news again :) and it’s all about the press conference.
It’s always a pleasure to read about him, and now that he’s the brother-in-law of Kwon Sang Woo, I’m pretty sure he’ll get mention a lot in parallel to his sister-in-law, Sohn Tae Young. If my calculation is right, the baby is due in 3 months as Sohn Tae Young is now 6 months, (or maybe going to her 7th month) pregnant.
Yiruma @ Lee Hana’s Peppermint music show.
Shown on December 13 ‘2008 (4th episode)
Not sure if he has ever done this before, but this is the very first time (for me) seeing him playing piano and singing at the same time – and it’s for “River Flows In You” no less. This song is supposed to be instrumental song like other marvelous songs he has written. “River flows in you” definitely has Yiruma’s signature all over it, and everytime I hear this song, I could just picture how a steady overflowing river… hmmm… =D
Absolutely wonderful. His voice is awesome too! ^^
I’m glad he came on the show (and saved Lee Hana’s Peppermint show once again lolz. I know, I know, I have a problem with this show. How sad~)
So, starting today, January 1 ‘2009, for 2 hours at 6pm (Mon-Fri), Yiruma will be replacing the previous host, the tenor singer Im Tae Gyeong (35). As PD Ahn Jong Ho said, because of Im Tae Gyeong’s international schedule will be difficult for him to continue on with this program, Yiruma is the perfect choice for the next host of this program.
(Well, yes, of course. Perfect Choice. What could’ve been better to pick a pianist like Yiruma, who has started his piano from the age of 5, to be the DJ of a classical FM radio? *Giddy* This is awesome~ though I’m not a big fan of classical music *grin*)
First of, BIG Thanks to dearest _shin_ for this bringing this up to my attention <3
What are the chances? This song, Still With You was on Blue Night a couple week nights ago, and one of Jazzholic’s avid readers also brought this site to my attention (yes, Alex did a freestyle in that dark room, keke.. totally awesome nonetheless), and now, on the first day of 2009, Alex and Na Yoon Kwon AND YIRUMA gave us this special present as the opening song? *dies* This is just too…. wonderful. *happy blissful sigh*
(I know how much Alex loves this song, but I dare not to dream that he sang it live on Blue Night. Thank YOU, Algoon. Happy New Year to you too! MORE POWER & SUCCESS & LOVE ^^)
With Yiruma on the piano, together with Alex & Na Yoon Kwon, singing this beautiful, Eric Benet’s song on Blue Night’s opening is an absolute MAGICAL moment. I just hope this picture would give the complete mental picture in our head of how the three of them this song justice last night. Isn’t Blue Night so awesome?! ^^
A closer look of the man behind the piano… YIRUMA <3
