Yiruma is one of Korea’s most celebrated pianists – if you’ve heard the term “child prodigy” thrown around then you’ve probably heard this guy’s name thrown around after it.

This is one of his most famous tracks, “River Flows in You”  

[Um… what does this have to do with pop music?]

WELL, not only is Yiruma a massive k-pop fan (his favourite group is SHINee), he has worked with the likes of 2AM, Baek Ji Young and a little lady known as Ailee on her chart-topping single “Higher”.

When Jay K caught up with the world famous concert pianist recently in Seoul, he asked Yiruma to play one of his favourite k-pop songs… but we didn’t have a keyboard handy…

See how he goes.

Here's the original version of the song:
