Korea's Got Talent: The Korean Susan Boyle

My facebook newsfeed has been blowing up with links to this video of Choi Sung-bong preforming on Korea's Got Talent. Everyone is calling him the Korean Susan Boyle, but I thought the judges were WAY nicer to him on this show than Simon Cowell was to Susan Boyle:

Just sayin'.

  1. Also, half of the deal with Susan Boyle was "hah, she's kind of homely! Only really beautiful people can be talented, obviously" and that's why the voice coming out of her mouth was a surprise. This guy, on the other hand, has had an unimaginably crappy life. He's not especially or unusually unattractive (unless you're using K-pop star standards, but send him under the knife enough times and he can live up to those).

    I also don't think Simon Cowell-style judging would go over well in Korea.
