Get your tissues ready, because this story definitely moved us to tears!
Such an inspirational story and performance, you just have to watch it.
Sung-Bong Choi decided to try his luck with Korea's Got Talent, and would be recognized for his talent even if he didn't have one of the most heartbreaking and inspirational stories we've ever heard.
When he was three, he was left at an orphanage. At age five, he ran away because he was being beaten and treated poorly. He then went on to live the next 10 years of his life alone, selling gum and energy drinks, and sleeping in stairwells and public restrooms.
He refers to himself as a "manual worker," and doesn't have a huge amount of confidence — but he knows who he becomes when he starts to sing.
Such a beautiful voice and moving story. It's no shock that he moved the whole audience to tears, and one of the judges offered to take him in vocally regardless of how far he got in the competition.
Even the hosts hugged and told him how proud they were of him!
We wish you all the luck, Sung-Bong Choi!!
Shoot, it's still so dusty in here. Still just getting things in our eyes, move along… ha!
