ABOUT JEKI

After winning Asia's greatest magic contest, The Busan International Magic Festival, in 2006 as a high school student, Jeki began winning international contests like a comet. His magic was innovative, inspired other magicians, and roused applause from audiences around the globe with its fresh originality.

In 2009, Jeki won a close-up magic award from the International Brotherhood of Magicians, the world’s largest organization of magicians.

Since then, Jeki and his magic have wowed audiences in England, France, Sweden, Italy, Japan, China, and many other countries including Scotland where, as a member of SNAP, one of Korea’s biggest magic shows, he was invited to perform at the famed Edinburgh Festival.

Jeki has also graced the stage of the incredibly popular hit show America’s Got Talent. Over 13 million people watched him perform his own unique style of close-up magic before an impressed panel of celebrity judges. Even the infamous Simon Cowell was left stunned by what he had just witnessed. Though Jeki didn’t continue on in the competition, he left the stage having won the hearts of a nation. “Love your laugh”, “(F)reaking awesome”, “I love his giggle”, and “Jeki is so cool” are just a few of the comments that hit social media afterward.

Not only was Jeki able to leave with his head held high, but, he also left crowned with the title “cutest magician of all time” (courtesy of America’s Got Talent by way of Twitter)

An Update from Ring 216

Hey folks!

Wanted to give you an update about our club.

Due to low in-person attendance and high rates of COVID in the community, we are going back to virtual meetings for the next couple of months. We will postpone the flea market/auction until the fall, and we're looking to secure some fun lecturers for June and July. Stay tuned for more details.

Hopefully we can go back in-person for our regularly scheduled walk-around magic competition in August.

We hope you'll continue to join us online as we keep Ring 216 alive until we can get past the worst of the pandemic.

Thanks for understanding.
David Martinez
President, Ring 216

FOR REMOTE MEMBERS

The good news is that we believe Zoom lectures are here to stay. They are a great way to bring in big name magicians who can't travel all the way to us. Stay tuned for additional information.
