Friends across the way

As I am very stumped over people telling me that Sung Bong Choi is not marketable.

I question that.

I am not sure because he is from Korea and not K-pop or is it the fact that

he is not "Dramatic" and would cause problems like those stupid reality shows.

For myself, I am not part a music company nor a singer.

They say numbers matter and if this doesn't show something that

people enjoyed Sung Bong Choi's performance I don't know what to say.

When I saw his performance and the young artist talk about his life growing

up, it moved me.

That has stuck with me.

If you don't know the story, just watch the video on Korea's Got Talent

and before you do make sure you grab a tissue.

Sung Bong Choi was born in Korea and at the age of 5 left the

orphanage because of abuse.

He slept on the streets and sold energy drinks to survive.

His bed was bathroom stalls.

A gang took him one time to a mountain and dug a grave

and I don't want to talk to much about that incident, but

they left him there.

Sung Bong Choi survived because of a "dream".

He wanted to sing.

What he listened to was someone singing and

I think it was classical type music.

When he went on the show, Korea's Got Talent,

no one was expecting him and his beautiful voice.

Look and watch the shocked reactions from the judges

about Sung Bong Choi's life.

Yet, he stays humbled and is kind.

Now he does have a place to sleep and has two kitties.

Sung Bong Choi also gets to work on his dream.

He is still waiting to be signed and is working hard on his

music to make his dream happen.

I had reached out to Sung Bong Choi and talking with

people in his production team and invited Sung Bong Choi

and a translator on a show I do, which is on the radio off

the internet, because I support him.

He has been trying to learn english but I know that

from watching and seeing his progress he has been doing


I just wish I was someone in the music business because

myself I would sign him.

For now I can be his friend and try to help out as much as I can.

I always believe that people should at least get a chance to do their


For now, I will help my friend the best way I can.

That is with care and support

I will just try my best.
