Dr. Kim is a great professor! I don't know what these other reviews are talking about. Yes, he has an accent. So what? He does explain well, and he genuinely cares about how well his students do. He makes himself very accessible with multiple office hours and quick responses via email. He does the coolest demos ever! Sometimes I felt more like I was watching a magic show than sitting in physics lecture. I was actually excited to go to class, and I don't even like physics! Just go to class! He even made the class before every exam a review session and told us exactly what to study. If you go to class, pay attention, and do what he says you will do well.

He was not very good at conveying information for the course. Boring lectures. Thick accent. I learned from the book. Big curve though.

He is one of the worst teachers I have ever had. When he is teaching he makes too many mistakes in his equations and does not give good explanations. The book is twice the teacher he is. You must have the book required because that is where you actually will learn. Do not get this professor.

You won't learn anything from this guy, seems to hate teaching/answering questions.

He's not the best lecturer. He likes to prove theories and doesn't test on them. Doesn't really encourage questions. It's amusing to watch him try to figure out how to make the demos work. He's also a really nice person. Basically, if you study really hard and write good cards (you're allowed one for the first test and additional one for subsequent tests), you'll be fine. He curves a lot.
