Park Jong-hwa is a pianist, professor, and artist with insight into life.

The Busan-born pianist, Jong-hwa Park has made a profound impact with his remarkable combination of highest level musicianship and visionary programmes. He has been contemplating the connection between classical music and modern society through programming.

He conceives and participates in projects that explore the link between art and society beyond the walls of the concert hall. Inspired by this, the project tHinG was created by pianist Park Jong-hwa, geomungo Heo Yoon-jeong, and British composer and electronic musician Gabriel Prokofiev (grandson of Sergei Prokofiev, a representative modern composer of the 20th century), who presented a new direction for classical music and explored the borders and genres with music.

In 2012, the first album 'HEROES' was released under Sony records and in 2015, the second album 'NUNAYA', which reinterpreted various familiar Korean children's songs such as 'Spring in Hometown', ‘Lullaby' into piano songs, was released by Universal records that opens new horizons for the Korean classical music scene.

He was appointed as a professor at Seoul National University's College of Music in 2007 and has recently continued to participate in issues related to human communication as a convergence knowledge base composition and artificial intelligence project in Academia to cope with the changes and evolution of classical music.
