Violinist Dennis Kim, who was dismissed last month from his position as concertmaster of the Hong Kong Philharmonic, has been hired as a conductor of the Seoul Philharmonic, the Korea Times reports.

Kim was fired by music director Edo de Waart for auditioning for a place with an American orchestra while purportedly on sick leave.

The appointment was made by Seoul Philharmonic artistic advisor and director Myung-whun Chung.

Kim was born in Korea and raised in Canada, and studied at the Curtis Institute and the Yale School of Music. He has been concertmaster with the Yale Philharmonia and the Tuscson Symphony.
