<News article>

“A difficulty with solo recitals is that an academic program may be boring to general audience, while one with popular pieces may be criticized for the lack of depth. However, Sunhae Im’s concert was novel. She exhibited her capability as an all-round entertainer in a natural fashion and also kept the artistic depth and dignity at the same time. The naturalness appeared to come from the immense joy and confidence that have been flowing through her singing in last 20 years, as well as from her sincere love to the accompanying musician friends.”
