Kwon Soon Keun became a worldwide YouTube sensation when someone posted ‘Korean Drummer Steals The Show’ on YouTube several years ago. Here is again, kicking ass and not stopping long enough to take names.
I wanna be this cool.

Kwon Soon Keun became a worldwide YouTube sensation when someone posted ‘Korean Drummer Steals The Show’ on YouTube several years ago.
I was so fascinated by his drumming and went on to make a documentary film called ‘A DRUMMER’S PASSION’.
The film was well received by public and it was selected for screenings at 2011 Vancouver Asian Film Festival and 2011 Toronto Reel Asian Film Festival. Mr. Kwon and I were on CP24 and Rogers TV Daytime for interviews and the popularity of the film was so high that we got so much attention despite it is only a short film.
Now, we are planning to make a feature film on Mr. Kwon and he seems happy to get his spotlight back at 71. (He is turning 72 in 2012.)

I like the bow of thanks at the end, from the chanteuse. HE is on a natural high, much like my 2 1/2 year old grand daughter. Yeah!
He definitely is a star. And damn it! I wanna be that cool.
He is channelling some serious coolness
The guy is confident, that’s for sure. Seems a little out of place though. Should be drumming for Glassjaw or something.
He kicks some major ass, that’s for sure *grins* He’s the subject of an indie film so it’ll be interesting to see where he is in his life. But damn, he looks like fun. 😀
