“I think participating in the Menuhin Competition is a bit like climbing a tall mountain. It’s important not to rush but to enjoy the excitement and challenges of the mountain! I know that the most important thing isn't the result, it's the process. As the old Korean saying goes, 'No one can beat the one who enjoys it!'”
