    It`s called autism and very very strict parents who beat the crap out of their child since day 1.

    I am certainly not qualified to say one way or ther other regarding autism, but neither is anyone else making any claim on here. The kid looks directly at his father and focuses on the camera. Shows a range of emotions all of which are not behaviour associated with autism.

    @unmercyfuldu thanks for making it plainly obvious you have no clue what autism is.

    " Autistic infants show less attention to social stimuli, smile and look at others less often, and respond less to their own name."

    tedgp... shut up.

    My eyes water when I see this ability at such a tender age. I strived for 5 years never to become that good at the piano.
    Ignore the arguments about autism: The child will hopefully grow up to make his way in the world by entertaining others and gaining pleasure from giving pleasure. We all have a living to earn; let this child`s ability provide him with a happy and successful life.

    I`m usually a naysayer about "prodigies", but this kid is the real deal. I wonder why the first piece was left in when he was not quite ready, though. The second version later in the video is much better.

    For those that think otherwise, this isn`t autism. You can see the child appreciating the music he makes, and there is not the typical stiffness/mechanicalness that is often seen.

    People other than Asians are capable of becoming passionate about something at a young age.

    His parents need to get that piano tuned or get him a nice digital. I prefer digital over almost any real piano these days.

    Agree he is awsome, But just a question for the folks out here. Do you think that in 10-20 yrs anyone will even listen to this music or if he will even still be known ? I can tolerate maybe 15 min`s of this and I want to poke my eardrums out. The kid may be good, Or else the piano is dead and this is dubbed, anyone know what songs he played? And Honey (oops it`s a ) Boo Boo, That kid will be scarred for life. I could not watch much more than 1 min of some shows just to see what the fuss was. The internet and reality tv has allowed all the attention hogs their 15 miutes (or more) of glory.
