Now 40 years young and married with a beautiful daughter, Jihoon was born and raised in South Korea. He studied Environmental Sculpture at the University of Taijeon and has been dreaming of creating sand sculptures all of his life. After his studies, Jihoon spent a few years sculpting sand at major corporate events and festivals throughout South Korea, Taiwan, Japan and Kuwait. This is Jihoon’s second appearance at this event and his second visit to Florida. His talent for inventing and producing sand toys for kids and his passion for teaching the art of sand sculpture has made him very well known and accomplished in his home country. Living his dream? Absolutely!
Jihoon is from Taijeon City, South Korea
