here the translation:
in the fantasy of living in a right world
where all people is living in peace and honesty
my dream is, i always dream living like clouds
them (fly *not sure*) in the umanity
in the bottom of our souls

unbelievable how modest he is about himself. I liked his voice very much. Not for a Popstar but he could really be a great opera singer!

How many times do you think he's heard "well done" in his life! ESPECIALLY in the Asian culture!!! Talk about new beginnings!

But Ennio Morricone has been informed that someone has dared to deface one of his best songs (from the movie Mission) with an idiot text? :O
Anyway, I hate Got Talent judges, of any nation!

He seems to have really had a hard life,but thank goodness he was born in South Korea where he will have a chance to excel,unlike his Northern cousins. We have not heard the last of this young tenor I think.

Oh please...
The poor orphan guy who lives alone since he was 3 years...
Sorry,but i don't believe it...
It's clearly only another way of this shit tv program to make audience...

How live this boy for 19 year?
Why he wasn't entrusted to an orphanage?
How he learned to sing?
How he learned italian language?

The idiots who watch this say:
"Oh poor guy...he live alone for all his childhood and now he sings like Pavarotti"

And meanwhile they watch the program and specially THE ADVERTISING!!!!

(or at least switch channels)

#15 You talking about 'the idiots on here' when you don't know shit about the usage of english grammar. How did this boy live till 19? The will to live is a very strong thing, you can survive anywhere on the earth, and in Korea, necessities like food and water arn't hard to find = LIFE.

Why wasn't he picked up by an orphanage? He's in fucking Korea....

(or at least put on some straight porn, you narcissistic faggot.)

Although I uploaded this video and I think that its a very touching story.

I think we all have to realise that its very attractive for a show like this to pull a stunt just to get some extra viewers/ attention.

But hey I dont have any information on this video, so I will just go ahead and believe it.

I actually gave #15 thumbs up, because I think his theory is plausible.

I'm with number 15. I'm sceptical. It's just a LITTLE too close to the Susan Boyle thing. We KNOW they've groomed people for stardom before. I just think there's more than a whiff of bullshit about this whole thing.

#6 life that hard, makes a person unbelievably modest. Even the modest word doesn't suit here.
You cannot believe, when i see a poor person, how much i want to be grateful to my parents and GOD and how much i want to help that person physically, mentally by making his self esteem up!~ I enjoy spending some of my busy time with poor and to help them in any possible way according to my sustenance and pure intention.

It is we who are insanely in the guard of people like parents, friends , business that makes us proud ( useless proud if i say )and act like a selfish jerks ( sometimes ). YOu better be lucky to have parents around you working hard not just to give you but to work hard just to HOPE that you get a better life than them. And tell me how do we treat them...~

WE have to be modest like this guy by being grateful to not to have conditions like him just to survive.

Why is it no matter what country this airs in, they always have two boyish lookin' dudes standing off to the side of the stage who don't know how to dress?

Nice voice, if his story is real, I sense a rags to riches story for this young man. If its not real, eventually the press will figure it out and he will get torn to pieces. I'm guessing if this IS fake, then they didn't let the judges in on it, just guessing from their reactions. Definitely more believable than Simon Cowell's "OMG I'm astonished" look.

I have no idea to this day what that Korean kid was singing about. Truth is, I don't wanna know. Some things are best left unsaid. I'd like to think he was singing about something so beautiful it can't be expressed in words, and it makes your heart ache because of it. I tell you that voice soared, higher and farther than anybody in a grey place dares to dream. It was like some beautiful bird flapped into our drab little cage and made these walls dissolve away, and for the briefest of moments, every last man on Snotr.com felt free.

At face value, it's a very moving story and good luck to him. But it is possible for us to be entertained and moved without being manipulated.

From Wiki:
On June 6, 2011, Choi's television performance of "Nella Fantasia" moved judges and audience members to tears. Sung Bong took the stage appearing unfit for the part. Sporting a bowl cut and flannel shirt, he introduced himself as a "manual worker" who had made a living selling "gum and energy drinks" for ten years.[2] In reply to a judge's inquiry about vocal training, Choi states clearly that he studied on his own but took "master classes" when he could. His full answer was edited to make his story more appealing for television. However, his formal training and musical background was stated on the show. The facts were immediately pointed out in a story on the Internet version of Time Magazine.[5] Time also noted that Paul Potts, who won Britain's Got Talent and was described as a mobile telephone salesman, had sung amateur opera, had performed with a small group connected with the Royal Philharmonic which toured Italy, and had paid for a master class with Luciano Pavarotti, but was still an amateur as he had never been paid for singing before his appearance on Britain's Got Talent. According to Time, Susan Boyle also recorded a charity CD before her appearance on Britain's Got Talent. In any event, Choi's performance is regarded as the first talent discovery of note from the Korean version of the show.

I have watched a few talent shows before but this one really hits the spot. I could not believe when he started to sing that I could not stop bawling my eyes out. Its was truly moving. If he really did had that hard of a life, this was one magic moment that I experience his life and pain. wow. He deserves the spotlight. It makes you wonder if he was really alone and if someone up there did notice him and gave him sometime special. Thumbs Up.

I hope that this kid makes it big and decides to help out other orphans that are not as fortunate to have as beautiful a singing voice as he does or other talents to help them excel in life. Great video Shayangx!
