Bang Ye Dam Will Become the Korean Justin Bieber?

Bang Ye Dam Will Become the Korean Justin Bieber?

On the January 27 episode of “SBS K-Pop Star 2” there was a battle of the ages with the strongest and youngest contestants going against each other. The three contestants were Akdong Musicians, Bang Ye Dam, and Kim Min Jung.

Akdong Musicians are well known for their musical skills, Kim Min Jung is well known for her dance skills, and Bang Ye Dam is well known for his singing skills, which were compared to the likes of Michael Jackson.

However, during the show Bang Ye Dam blew away the competition with his rendition of Justin Bieber’s “Baby.”

After his performance, the three judges JYP, YG and BoA gave great praise to Bang Ye Dam.

BoA stated, “Out of the audition programs, you are the youngest one who has entered into the Top 10. You have the ability to suck in the audience.”

JYP stated, “You have soul, pop, and rap. Also when you rapped, you really felt the rhythm. When you sang the high notes, you didn’t run away from them. Also, you have the ability of playing with the viewer’s emotions.”

YG stated, “This was the most surprising performance out of Season 2. You really surprised me. I felt like your future has just opened up 360 degrees, and I think you can really become the next Justin Bieber.”

With how Justin Beiber is jumping out of the water, being the next him is not the best thing. Why can't these new singers just be themselves? They always have to be the next 'insert singers name.' Let them make a name for themselves. Sheesh.

The judges were also comparing him to Michael Jackson but it's all hype. In the beginning there was doubts that they were going to let him past the initial televised episodes. You have to keep in mind that the Big 3 are wanting to contract some of these acts, so they often go overboard with comments.
