Now that she is thirty, Kim can bring into focus some of the turning points of her artistic career. The first one arrived at the age of six years old when she was a promising young student who was studying the piano and the violin.

In a competition in Seoul, Kim’s hometown, her peers outclassed her, and this pushed her into studying with stronger determination. The following year, she participated again, and this time, she won. At only 11 years old, she moved first to New York and then to Rome to refine her music studies and since then – living without her parents – Kim has matured a broader view of her relationship with the violin. From Korea, she has preserved her self-discipline, competitive spirit and perception of pure beauty. To these, she adds the colour and sense of pleasure which come from her Italian music training. Today, she plays in the Orchestra dell’Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia – which has given her the opportunity to work with many great musicians in recent years.
