South Korean Jegal Sam has been playing the piano for 82 years – and is still strong.

The 96-year-old has been inextricably linked to the instrument since it was first recorded at the age of 14. It gave him more than 50 years of teaching career and even saved him from conscription during the Korean War.

He’s long retired now and still practices every day – just in case he ever gets the chance to perform.
