Sungha Jung: Korean Guitar Boy-Genius Plays August 15 and 17 in Cebu and Manila
Drop everything and take heed!
Korean guitar boy-genius Sungha Jung, whose previous stops to the country have incited shrieks and squeals of glee from Pinoy fans from all walks of life, will be back for another round of performances. He will grace the stage at J. Center Mall, Cebu on August 15, 2014, as well as at the Samsung Hall in SM Aura, Taguig on August 17, 2014. The seventeen-year-old fingerstyle guitarist first invaded YouTube with mind-blowing rearrangements of popular tunes while he was still in grade school, wowing both regular people and celebs alike with his mad skills. Among them was John Lennon’s widow, the Japanese avant-garde artist Yoko Ono, who was reportedly floored by the boy’s rendition of the Beatles classic “All You Need is Love.” “Frankly, nothing was easy. I could not pose properly due to the big guitar; even pressing the strings was painful and hard due to [my] small hands,” he recalled his early years in an old DC inside interview, his dead-serious approach to playing still evident despite having already cemented a stellar reputation worldwide.
If you haven’t seen him live yet, well, August is just around the corner and you should treat yourselves to a serious (and seriously enjoyable) guitar show! Sungha Jung’s covers are practically originals in their own way; he makes well-loved tunes such as Stevie Wonder’s “Superstition,” Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep,” Maroon 5’s “Payphone,” and Michael Jackson’s “Man in the Mirror” his own in both structure and feel. If there ever was any doubt in your heart, ask any of the 42 million people who went nuts over his rendition of the Pirates of the Caribbean theme, only one of countless other performances that have amassed record numbers in online viewership.
Original cuts from his discography—2010’s Perfect Blue, 2011’s Irony, 2012’s The Duets, 2013’s Paint It Acoustic, and this year’s Monologue—are obviously no duds either, faring as well in his shows as their revived counterparts.
So what are you waiting for? A different Korean invasion is nigh, and you wouldn’t want to be caught napping and missing it altogether! Buy your tickets now!
