South Korea's Susan Boyle?

June 09, 2011

The Most Shared video in South Korea today is also the Most Shared video in nearly every English-speaking YouTube country. Sung-bong Choi is being called "South Korea's Susan Boyle" and his appearance on "Korea's Got Talent," which just launched this summer, has been seen millions of times this week around the world.

Two versions of the clip below, one with subtitles and one without, have drawn a combined 3.6 million views in the past seven days or so, and as many as 1.5 million views yesterday alone. The emotional video, in which judges are brought to tears, has not been without some controversy, but has nevertheless quickly stirred up interest globally.

(Boyle's first performance on "Britain's Got Talent" became a global phenomenon and was viewed tens of millions of times.)
