Whenever I work in Korea, there is a film production guy named Djinn who takes me around. He speaks broken English and is very quiet and shy. In fact, he is so quiet I can't get a read on him. One night, the entire crew went out for karaoke. There was a dozen of us and we were all drinking. Everyone was taking their turn singing. At some point I saw Djinn get up. He is so shy that I thought, this is going to be boring, I might as well go to the bathroom. When he opened his mouth I nearly fell on the floor. He was incredible. In fact, he was amazing. A regular Englebert Humperdink. I completely misjudged him. It made me think about how else I may have misjudged this guy. Maybe he's a complete superstar. I went bowling with him one night and he's a decent bowler too. He also told me he plays in a baseball league and he's the teams starting pitcher. I wonder what else he has up his sleeve.
