New Korean talent at K-Pop Star reality show

Here is another young Korean talent who is fast gaining popularity and whose audition video is going viral online on You Tube.

The 15-year-old Park Ji-Min, a Korean reality-show contestant on “K-Pop Star,” an American Idol-like singing competition, even had Ashton Kutcher tweeting: this is AMAZING!!!! and WSJ asking Is Park Ji-Min the Next Susan Boyle?

Park Ji-Min sings Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep.”

Choi Sung-bong is the other Korean talent who got the world watching. In the final, Choi lost out to popping dancer, Joo Min-jung who won the grand prize of 300 million won and an automobile.


  1. as much as she sounds like Adele, i think she should have her own style and avoid imitating the original singer.. the cover from Linkin Park and David Cook sets a good example to those who are covering this song.. :)

  2. Wow! her voice is amazing! Definitely singer material!

  3. SK, for one whose first language is not English (presuming) and who is just 15, she is amazing and with that voice, she will go far (with coaching, sponsorships, etc). Improvisation will follow as a matter of course, I'm sure.

  4. Foong, she's someone to watch.
