Eugene Cho

the greatest drummer in the world

Need inspiration?

Because if you do, this might be one of the greatest things that you’ll ever witness. Such great skill, passion, and joy…

This is the beauty of art.

Whenever I get in a funk, this is one of those videos I turn to in order to be inspired. I give you the “Greatest Drummer in the World.” Make sure you watch the whole thing!

Quest is blessed with some gifted drummers. But no offense to any of these or other drummers who read this blog, check out the Korean drumming dude in the video.

He is the greatest drummer in the world.

For those who want to cover this song for your aspiring bands or your American Idol tryout…It’s called “You’re Too Much [or Unkind]” first sung by Kim Suhee in 1976 and written by Yang Cheon-gang.

Your last word was that you love me
You won’t come back
But tell me the truth
When you leave, leave without a word
Don’t make me cry

Too much [or ‘unkind’]
Too much [or ‘unkind’]
You’re too much [or ‘unkind’]

I quietly close my eyes
And picture you
I can’t forget all our memories
You, who’s gone, are cold-hearted
But I don’t regret it

Too much [or ‘unkind’]
Too much [or ‘unkind’]
You’re too much [or ‘unkind’]

now here are those lyrics in Korean

너무합니다 – 김수희

마지막한마디 그말은
나를 사랑한다고
돌아올 당신은 아니지만
진실을 말해줘요
떠날땐 말없이 떠나가세요
날 울리지 말아요

너무 합니다
너무 합니다
당신은 너무 합니다

조용히 두눈을 감고서
당신을 그려 봅니다
너무나 많았던 추억들을
잊을수가 없어요
떠나간 당신은 야속하지만
후회 하지않아요

너무 합니다
너무 합니다
당신은 너무 합니다

  2. Randall says:

    ouch…I got a hernia just watching the guy!

  3. Melanie says:

    ooh he looks like he looooves his job! LOL

  4. Su says:

    That was AWESOME….I just wish the singer would have moved over. Do you think we could request that George only perform on the drums if he can promise to play like this?

  5. young c-m says:

    LOL. Thanks for providing a good laugh for today, Eugene!!! Great video. =)

  6. Dan Hauge says:

    many have rhythm, but only few have . . . . STYLE. Funny. He’s also really really good, actually.

  7. Blake says:

    I’m with Dan and Radall… dude’s got chops. Staying in control and moving around like that isn’t easy.

  8. Brian says:

    Loved that video! Here’s another drumming video that will put a smile on your face (Buddy Rich and Animal do a drum solo on The Muppet Show) http://www.drummerworld.com/Videos/buddyrichmuppet.html

  9. matt says:

    I don’t know… I still kinda like this drumer:

  10. Ricky says:

    Haha. Wow. The last part was hilarious. Korean drummer headbangin’ like a rockstar. Greatness.

  11. me says:

    i don’t know if i can get george to play drums like this but i do know a drummer that plays for a band called harrison band in seattle.

  12. Linda says:

    All that, AND has great hair

  13. Randall says:

    aw, shucks…thanks PE & Linda

    (and he has a blog…http://www.lonetomato.com)

  14. Rebecca says:

    I love the facial expressions he is making throughout the entire song. Good thing the singer never looked behind her-she would not have been able to keep singing her deep, emotional song-she would have been laughing too hard!

  15. That was RUH–diculous. The facial expressions, oh my, the facial expressions. This guy gives whole new meaning to the phrase “move to the music.”

  16. shirley says:

    He was actually a very entertaining drummer lol.

  17. jason says:

    cool video…i think he should do a solo…very entertaining

  18. jHong says:

    all i know is, that chick TOTALLY stole the outfit i was gonna wear on sunday.

  19. mellocello says:

    oh man… is that what you’re going for when you tell me that i need to head bang more while i’m playing cello?

  20. Terri says:

    I wonder if he was like this in rehearsals! If so, that could be the reason why the singer didn’t turn around even once! I remember not being able to look at my drummer in one of my previous bands (all b/c of his facial expressions). 🙂

  21. georgesong says:

    many don’t know but that was me on drums and jin on the electric guitar. 😉

  22. Jennifer says:

    My son says that when he grows up, he wants to be like Mike, who drums for Quest, so that he can lead people in worship🙂🙂

  23. penny says:

    wow. This is…honestly…um…like nothing I have ever seen before.

  24. Jimmy says:

    hahaha that’s how the elder at my church plays drums. It looks just like him too.

    But I’m partial to this guy. He’s intense.

One Day’s Wages

My Instagram

Father - daughters bonding (and freezing) time at the Seahawks game. Grateful to the Panthers organization for the tickets. Now, go Hawks. Pound the Panthers. The family that karaokes together stays together. #ChoFamilyKPopFamily Family time in one of my favorite cities in the world - especially when the exchange rate is so favorable. Thank you, Vancouver, for being such a great refuge for our souls for the past 20 years. #QuestVancouver It's the day after...that day.
Be grateful. Again.
We woke up. We're alive.
Breathing. Dreaming.
Pursuing. Embodying. Loving.

It's never that perfect or easy but that we get to try to do these things is reason enough to be grateful to the One who gives us life.

Yes. Be grateful.
That you, Jesus.
#PreachingToMyself This is what real life looks like after a crazy couple weeks. Grateful for this woman. I love her. She's gonna scream at me for posting this pic. #ThoseSocksThough Grateful for the opportunity to encourage 2500 youth leaders & pastors at the @youthspecialties conference in Cincinnati, Ohio. Had prayed for wisdom to encourage leaders and courage to navigate a word for leaders post election about empathy and compassion for the unseen, marginalized, and those experiencing real fear.

Also, what a joy to have my church's youth pastor, @cobycagle, also here teaching. Some years ago, I was a youth pastor for several years in California, Korea, NY, and NJ. They were meaningful years but filled with challenges and loneliness. Sometimes, I felt unseen and insignificant - in comparison to "real" adult ministry. As a lead pastor now, I want to make sure I don't make those mistakes of overlooking our youth and children's ministry and their volunteers and staff. 
Pastor Coby, Pastor Katey, Pam, Jalle, and Jasmin: We see you. We appreciate you. We are grateful for your presence and leadership at Quest and beyond. Thank you and all of our amazing volunteers
