Eugene Park is a violinist who was born in New York. He started to play the violin at age three. And he was already in Julliard Pre-College at the age of eight. When he turned 13, he started appearing in concerts at the Lincoln Center.

He performed with the Wayne Symphony Orchestra at age 10, and also the New York philharmonic as well as the Seoul Symphony Orchestra. He is probably one of the few musicians that played alongside Michael Jackson. In 1999, there was a benefit concert titled “Michael Jackson & Friends” and Eugene Park was one of the friends. Eugene Park was also invited to perform at Korea's former president Kim Dae Jung’s inauguration.

Eugene Park had some issues with his management agencies. There were rumors that he was beaten and locked up but he came out in TV shows last year to reveal what truly happened. Since he started the violin at age 3, his life was about violin, and only the violin. And it wasn’t easy for him. He suffered from manic-depressive disorder. So at times, he couldn’t sleep even an hour for three weeks. And in the process of moving from one management to another, there were misunderstandings.

He couldn’t perform or play for a while, but it looks like he’s slowly coming back to his heyday. He had performances three time last year, and even towards Christmas, so it looks like we’ll be able to get more of him in the future.

He has a couple of albums out including The Bridge from 1997, Peace from 1998, Live from 2000, The 3rd-Gust from 2006 and a mini album titled Nostalgia from 2011.
