Meet Vong Pak, a Traditional Korean Drum Performer Busking in the Subway

"Healing Society - that is the Korean drummer’s philosophy,"  says Vong Pak, a local musician, drum teacher and performer. Pak has played the Korean drum for more than 25 years and believes in performing to share Korean identity and culture with the world.

I bring… not just my drumming skills, but also the history of Korea, so they understand the beauty of something different.

This short documentary, directed and produced by NYC-based production company Notable Features, is one of 10 episodes from the Rhythm in Motion series about the City's subway musicians.

Vong Pak's music is available to download on iTunes.
