An amazing new clip from Korea’s Got Talent is spreading like wildfire this morning, with just over 274,000 views so far.  It features a young man, Sung-Bong, who has lived an extremely hard life—he ran away from an orphanage when he was five years old, after being beaten by people there, and he lived on the street throughout his childhood, making money selling gum and energy drinks in the street.  Sung-Bong says, “I don’t sing that well, but when I sing I feel like I become a different person.”

Sung-Bong’s story is so sad and inspirational that when he begins to sing you might not be able to hold back the tears.  All of the judges and everyone in the audience at the Korea’s Got Talent performance tear up, and the video description says, “I seriously cried when he started singing..just wanna give him a Huge Hug!!”  I’m not gonna lie.  I cried too.  It’s just so moving to see this young man finally getting the chance to live his dream.

People are describing Sung-Bong as the next Susan Boyle.  However, although Susan Boyle’s Britain’s Got Talent performance made me cry too (yeah, I’m an emotional gal), I found Sung-Bong’s story and performance even more emotional and heart wrenching.  I hope that he gets the same kind of worldwide attention as Susan Boyle did, and the millions of views.  He certainly deserves it.
