Clay Aiken's song On My Way Here has been used often by Korean Television. The most recent is the following clip from the Olympic Medal award ceremony honoring the Gold Medal win of Korean swimmer Park Tae-Hwan in the 400m freestyle.
As a third degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do, I have had the pleasure of working closely with people from Korea and actually got to visit this wonderful country in 2005.
I can understand why the Korean people are drawn to both this song and to Clay - they are kindred spirits. The Korean people are caring, humble and generous. Seoul is a city of over 10,000,000 people. Although it is one of the largest cities in the world, it emanates an aura of quiet civility.
