ANYTHING HE CAN’T DO?

One of the world’s top poker players, Cha Min-soo (also known as Jimmy Cha in the United States), is holding an exhibition of his drawings until this Saturday at the Seoul Gallery in the Korea Press Center.
He has been learning how to draw since 1999, studying under renowned Korean artist Cho Dong-hwa.
He plans to donate all proceeds from his paintings’ sales to the poor.
Mr. Cha was the inspiration for the fictional Korean soap opera “All-in,” which depicts a time when he used to earn over $1 million dollars a year from playing poker.
Mr. Cha also plays at a fourth-grade skill level in professional paduk, or Korean chess, and at a seventh-grade skill level in kung fu. The Jack-of-all-trades says he is pretty good at the violin and piano too.
