Joo Min-jung, Winner of Korea's Got Talent 2011

After being pleasantly surprised by Choi Sung-bong's performance in June and hearing him share his sad childhood, everyone must be rooting for him to win Korea's Got Talent 2011.

The grand finale was held last Saturday, Aug 20. Choi garnered the second most number of votes.

So, who won Korea's Got Talent? Just like the winner of China's Got Talent, a popping dancer won the grand prize of 300 million won and an automobile. Watch 17-year-old dancer Joo Min-jung perform in the finals below.



The grand finale episode was aired live as well as through YouTube worldwide on Saturday.

  5. Foong, dance over song - choice of the voters. I wonder what's the ratio like. Still, Choi must the highest profile contestant in this show.

    Bananaz, true what you said - anything can happen until the final. Didn't know you write Korean. Cool!

    Lina, I couldn't agree more. Besides, singing normally outlives dancing. My thinking..

  6. SK, absolutely! There are more options as a singer. For instance, some recording company just needs to sign him up and get his act together and voila(!) his first CD will be in stores and probably selling like hot cakes.

    from Mississauga, Canada: Choi Sung-bong, you brought tears to my eyes every time i heard you singing. Singing brings more power to the soul than dancing. You touched the hearts of millinos of people. Do not stop!

  10. Hello Princess, I am sure there are millions out there who feel the same. Thank you for stopping by.

    Hello Anonymous from Mississauga, Canada, those are such kind words of encouragement. I too tear up everytime I watch the video. Thank you for sharing and for stopping by.

    Hello a filipino fan in Sg, such a nice encouragement. Adam Lambert of American Idol does come to mind, doesn't he? Thank you for stopping by.

  11. Of course I was hoping Choi Sung_bong would have won. But that's asking a lot for an Italian Opera song to be voted number one among the voters.

    Anyway, I believe he will have an extremely successful career. Maybe even more successful than Joo Min-jung; although she's probably a great dancer. I'd buy his albums (oops dates me) CD's. ;)

    This might be a little late but all I care is that Choi is my winner in my book. I have you on my iPhone too, and no lie every time I watch the video it's hard to fight for my tears not to build up. 정말 좋아요, 파이팅!!!from your distant friend 제푸리임니다.

    You can tell the results are "bogus" if a girl on the floor doing simple gymnastics and has to rely on a multi-mirror effect to perform, wins over a such a talented boy with a voice "like no other"...a "True God Given Gift".What a stinken tragedy that he did not win. Pity!!! Like...what the heck happened???

  15. Congratulations Choi Sung-Bong! I just watched your performance via youtube.com and I was amazed. Your life encouraged people like me to do things right even your past doesn't seems to be as good as we wanted.
