Linux Kernel expert wanted!

Someone said here in Korea, it's super hard to find anybody who knows Linux Kernel inside out and be able to tune it if necessary. It's so true. The company I work for right now has like 1300 employees, and I have not encountered a single person who are Linux Kernel guru. Maybe I haven't met many people, but when I look up the names of the teams and departments, most of them are about developing the front end GUI and user applications.

It seems like the people who program and tune at "lower" abstract level are becoming more and more scarce. Maybe there isn't much demand for them - after all, how many companies are willing to write their own OS or tune their OS? Most of them are just using whatever it's currently available off the shelf, and my company is one of them.

Anyways, if you know of anybody who's good at Linux Kernel here in Korea, let me know, please.
