Riffraff! Street Rat! Scoundrel! Take That!


So I don’t generally deal with reality show bullshit, as I have too many other fictional shows to keep up with, but I have a soft spot in my heart for particularly touching “(insert country)’s Got Talent” auditions.

There’s just something about seeing a person with a shitty life instantly become famous that really gets me, and though past breakthroughs I’ve seen have been in the American and British versions of the shows, here’s one from Korea that’s particularly moving.

It’s a kid who pretty much grew up on the street, and was occasionally sold as a slave, but despite all that, he has an incredible hidden talent that gets to be showcased here. Try not to tear up, I dare you. Not saying I did…but, you know…
