Roy Kim guested on the August 5 installment of 'Talents for Sale' and discussed the time he spent abroad as an international student in North America. 


When Kim Se Jung asked him the reason he left Korea to study abroad, Roy Kim replied, "Around the time I was finishing up fourth grade, it was also around the time my older sister was preparing for her college entrance exams. My parents said that they didn't think they'd be able to keep a close eye on me until my sister was done with her exams so they suggested I go study abroad."

Roy Kim added, "At the time, I was so happy to be away from my mom's nagging. When I was in Korea, I was forced do all kinds of extracurricular activities, but when I was abroad, I spent my time playing basketball after school."

    It's was pretty smart! It's always good to have an experience abroad. It's makes people grow with a broader mind and gives them the opportunity to learn a bit more about other cultures. :)

    I think that was a smart move on his part. I mean, isn't Georgetown University like a pretty prestigious place? and i heard he's focusing on studying sociology or something to get better at understanding humans and writing good songs. Anyway ugh, love him :)

    Asshole if you were a serious, studious, and  hardworking student like me, you would be able even to study in prestigious Seoul national university like me and don't spend  money and currency to a foreign country college but Korean and to contribute to our economy ! Shame on you !

    no cursing pls, Roy Kim is one of lucky son, if parents can send their kids to study abroad that is an accomplishment. To study to top university here in the state you have to past enstrance test and your grades in high school sh be excellent. Not only that he was able to have a second language, English, which he is very fluent in speaking. Good job Roy Kim do more music.

    Travelling abroad and studying in a foreign country is a unique experience. We learn much more than staying in our country with just books. More than knowledge in books, we're learning about the real life. And if we're enough intelligent, we'll become more open-minded, more tolerant and clever than some people that I won't name.

    um, excuse me? i think your statement is incorrect. georgetown is just as prestigious as SNU and if not more. sure it's an expensive school, but that's one of the reasons why their alumni (including roy when he graduates) are so successful; you get your money's worth while being mentally sane at the same time.
