Korean Magic School

Oh Eun-young Bagdad Magic

There is a wonderful story about Oh Eun-young, one of the few women magicians in Korea and her desire to learn and teach the art to apparently anyone she meets. She has a large photo of Lance Burton and was excited to talk with David Copperfield recently. She opened the Magic Cafe Bagdad in western Seoul and has begun a school to teach aspiring magicians.

To me, the proof that she was bitten by the magic bug came in one of the last comments in the wonderful article, “Wherever Ms. Oh goes, she is thinking about her next big illusions. “My life revolves around magic,” she says. “‘When I buy hairpins, I think of how I could use them as an accessory to my next act.'” I think all magicians can relate to that feeling.

Her website is a treat. You’ll need to have Korean fonts downloaded for your browser but it is, as she has been described, “enchanting.” Check it out for yourself. http://www.bagdadmagic.net

I am sorry that I missed her at the Society of American Magicians Convention in New York this summer.

I have asked if she would be willing to allow www.insidemagic.com to interview her and write a story about her career in magic. I hope to have more information for you then.

The acid test of any trick, magician, show or site for our review is whether it shows a true love for magic. The kind of love that encourages and resonates with magicians. Ms. Oh Eun-young’s story and site do exactly that.

RATING 4 out of 4 — Excellent!
