South Korea’s 96-year-old pianist hopes to keep playing

South Korean Jegal Sam has been playing the piano for 82 years – and is still going strong.
The 96-year-old has been inseparable from the instrument even since he first took it up aged 14. It gave him a career teaching which spanned more than
50 years, and even saved him from conscription during the Korean war.
Now long retired, he still practices every day – just in case the chance to perform should ever pop up.
