Got an app for that? Former TV star is still folding paper (Joongang-ilbo)

Ask your average 20 to 30 year old South Korean who grew up here to make something out of paper and you will be amazed by the results. It isn't genetic. Back during the 1980s-1990s, there was a popular show for kids about paper folding.

The JoongangDaily writes does an interview with the host of the show.

My random thoughts:

* These days, the kids might wonder if there was a paper folding app...

* Mr. Paper Folder says that the adults who watched his show were so pure as they recently chatted with him. The next time someone asks me, "What should we tell kids about (the latest war or hot political topic)," I will answer, "Nothing. Let them fold paper and enjoy being kids."

* He hasn't been on TV, leading people to conclude he hasn't been doing anything. As I often say: "The only things more important than being alive are being on TV and Facebook." He has avoided the spotlight, he says, on purpose.
