Tough episode for Wheesung
Singer Wheesung, who was discharged from the military in August, showed off his vocal abilities on JTBC’s “Hidden Singer 2” on Saturday, winning the episode.
The singing competition pits veteran singers against amateur singers, who imitate professional vocalists from behind a curtain. Meanwhile, judges and the audience must decide who the real singer is.
Wheesung had a shaky second round, only receiving 22 votes, though his unique and soulful voice came to his rescue later when he performed “I Even Thought of Marriage.” He ultimately won the show, winning back the audience in the final round.
One of Wheesung’s imposters on the show, Kim Jin-ho may, is allegedly in talks to join trot singer Tae Jin-ah’s entertainment agency Jin Ah Productions, to which Wheesung belongs.
“When I heard him [Kim] singing, I couldn’t tell whether it was the real Wheesung,” said Tae, who was on the show’s panel of judges. “Shouldn’t he become a professional singer?” By Yim Seung-hye
