03 Dec 2010


Kun Woo Paik has been awarded the Eun-gwan (Silver Crown) Order of Cultural Merit from the Culture Ministry of Korea, the nation’s second-highest honour for contributions to culture.  At the Press Conference in Seoul he attended with his film actress wife Kun Woo and said ‘I’ve been very much loved by my home public. Having been awarded with such honour I’m delighted, grateful and feel more responsible.’  He said that growing older has changed the way he appreciates music, ‘When I was younger, I interpreted music rather emotionally…but I’ve become more careful and cautious as I grow older; I try harder to listen to what the music wants me to hear’.
