Sungha Jung Live in Kuala Lumpur Photo credit: Karheng Photography  Sungha Jungs One Night Only concert in Kuala Lumpur was organized by The Guitar Store. Held at the DBKL auditorium, it was a full house concert. The audience mainly consisted of guitar and ukulele players/enthusiasts, who are well aware of this talented kid. It was also The Guitars Store collaboration with the Ukulele brand maker aNueNue. The concert started promptly at 8pm and Sung Ha kicked off the concert with Felicity, a new track from his latest albumPaint it Accoustic, before addressing the crowd. He followed up with Sorry and Friends which are both his own compositions and then went on to more familiar tunes like Maroon 5s Payphone (which Im sure got quite a number of his fans excited) and then changing the mood to the famous tune from Phantom of the Opera. He went pop again by playing Bruno Mars Gravity and then picked up his ukulele for two other numbers, Somebody I used to know by Gotye and Bad Boy.Sungha Jung Live in Kuala Lumpur This was followed by an intermission and when Sungha returned, he worked the crowd up with his only Electric Guitar piece which was Canon in Rock. He was flawless here and played his heart out. After that, He went back to his guitar and played I Remember You from his latest album and Nostalgia, which he introduced as one of his favourite songs, as mentioned during his press conference.  Then he played Bird and Howls Moving Castles before working on Tommy Emmanuels Guitar Boogie, which he really worked a storm with the fast beat and exhibited his guitar skills with even using parts of his forearm to play. Sungha Jung Live in Kuala Lumpur After that, he announced that he was going to play the last song for the night and by then he had the crowd wanting more. And the crowd were found Wanting when he mentioned the name of the song was You Exist In My Song. Unfamiliar in this name, once he started playing, the majority of Chinese in the crowd immediately knew the song and some applause could be hear. This was Wan Tings hit song 我的歌声里 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w0dMz8RBG7g) and it was such a pleasure listening to him render his version of it. Unfortunately there were slight disruptions with the sound system and when he left, the crowd did not budge and Sungha came back for an encore, where he played the jazz classic tune All of Me.The crowd then went for the autograph session which saw Sung Ha sign fans guitars, ukes, albums and tshirt which they had purchased.

Guitar Wonder Boy Sungha Jung Meets Malaysian Press

Sungha Jung, Malaysia

You might have seen him on Youtube where he first started. You might also have seen him performed with Jason Mraz. The melodious sound coming from his guitar and playing with such dexterity makes people consider him as guitar wonder. As of March 2013, his videos had gotten a total of over 650 million hitsmore than 1.5 million YouTube subscribers.

Guitar Wonder Boy Sungha Jung Meets Malaysian Press

Yes, he is Sungha Jung, South Korea's finest fingerstyle guitarist and he is back in Malaysia with his third acoustic solo album- 'Paint It Acoustic' that was released in April 2013 in conjunction with his tour. This was his third visit to Malaysia since his 2011 tour in Kuala LumpurPenang, and for his promotional mini concert to celebrate the launching of 'Borneo to the World' in Kuching and Kota Kinabalu last year. So, what brought him to Malaysia again this June? What motivates this young guitarist to continue the path that he has chosen? What is his future aspiration? Let's find out more in these excerpts of QA session:

Guitar Wonder Boy Sungha Jung Meets Malaysian Press

Q1: What does it feel to come again to Kuala Lumpur for a second time?

A: First of all, it was nice to meet all of you and the warm feeling of welcome that I received upon my arrival. I'm very excited to be here again and I can't wait for tonight's concert.

Q2: For tonight's concert, did you prepare any surprises or special stage to be showcased to the fans?

A: It's a secret! (laugh). Yes, I prepared something special for my fans but I cannot tell you what kind of performance it is, since it's going to blow the surprise.

Q3: You have collaborated with many local (Korean) and foreign artists and musicians. Is there any other musician that you would like to collaborate in the future?

A: I have met Roy Kim, the singer who rose to fame through Korean Audition Program- SuperStar K, during the Jason Mraz concert, and I would love to strum my guitar and collaborate with him. That would be my choice for Korean artist. As for foreign artists, I would say, Bruno Mars.

Q4: If you have to pick one sing from your latest album, which track would be your favorite?

A: That will be my own composition, a ballad melody song entitled 'Nostalgia' .

Guitar Wonder Boy Sungha Jung Meets Malaysian Press

Q5: This song 'Nostalgia' have a melody and a 'calm and soothing feeling' that will make the listeners reminisce their nostalgic moments in their life. Are there any stories behind this composition?

A: To be honest, there is no specific story or history behind the song. I was practicing my guitar and the melodies were naturally 'flowed through the strings'.

Q6: Who do you consider to be your greatest musical influence and inspiration?

A: I always looked up to this Australian guitarist named Tommy Emmanuel who is known for his amazing guitar performance and complex fingerstyle technique. I wish that one day I could be like him.

Q7: Do you have any plan for a tour in the United States of America?

A: Yes, the tour kick off will be in March 2014.

Guitar Wonder Boy Sungha Jung Meets Malaysian Press

Q8: You rose to fame through Youtube Channel which where you first started. Have you ever expect this kind of success?

A: To be honest, it was still a shock to me. When my first video was first uploaded on Youtube (by my father), I was only 9 or 10 years of age. I was too young to know the power of Youtube, in fact I would say I don't really know what Youtube was or get familiar with it. Until today, I could never imagine myself to achieve this kind of success.

Q9: Besides being a musician, have you ever considered to be a singer or a K-pop idol?

A: (laugh) Well, I did take some vocal lessons but I didn't really have time to practice it or perfecting my pitch. With my hectic daily schedules, it seems impossible for me as of now to change my path to other than what I am today.

Guitar Wonder Boy Sungha Jung Meets Malaysian Press

Q10: What do you think of your collaboration with Jason Mraz?

A: It's liked a 'Cinderella dream' for me to finally meet and perform with him for his concert. It was a rare opportunity and I felt very honored that I was given this opportunity to be on the same stage with one of the renowned musician like Jason Mraz.

Q11: Is there anything you would like to say to other aspiring guitarists that wanted to be like you?

A: I heard that a lot of people started to play guitar after watching my videos on Youtube and I feel thankful and honored that I become their inspiration. Well, I'm still young in this industry and I don't think I would be the perfect person to give an advise to others. However, all I can say is practice makes perfect; practice harder to pursue their interests in order to realize their dream.

Q12: You are very dedicated towards your instruments, both the guitar and ukulele. Besides music, what do you do to spend your free time?

A: A: I'm just like any other normal kids. I used to play basketball with my friends. However, due to my hectic schedule now, to add with my home schooling, I rarely got the chance to do that anymore, nor that I have time to meet or hang out with my friends. If I do, I usually do some web surfing just to 'kill' my time

Sungha Jung

At just 15, Sungha Jung shot to international fame through YouTube as one of the most talented and youngest acoustic fingerstyle guitarist. But Sunghas fame started much earlier for those who have been following himat the young age of 9 when his father started uploading videos of him playing the guitar. Who could deny such raw talent? Sunghas very own YouTube Channel has more than 1.9 million subscribers and over 690 million views as of today! Sungha has also worked with some of the top KPOP stars in the industry (2NE1, Big Bang GDragon to name a few) so he is definitely a name to watch!

Sungha Jung

This is his second trip back to Malaysia and a press conference was held today at The Guitar Store who is also the organizer for Sungha Jungs One Night Only Live in Kuala Lumpur concert. It was also The Guitars Store collaboration with the Ukulele brand maker aNueNue. Sungha shared that he was excited to be back in Malaysia again even tho he only arrived last night and didnt have much time to look around Kuala Lumpur. He shared that he was also looking forward to performing at the concert.

Sungha Jung

On his favourite track from his latest albumSungha shared that Nostalgia was his favourite and that he composed it himself. He explained that there isnt a real story behind the song Nostalgia but that the song was composed during practice. He further explained to the media that because of his young age, there isnt any influences / real life experiences when it comes to composing his songs as most of it comes through his feelings at the point of composition. He joked that he also havent experienced love yet to be able to put them into a song composition.

When asked if he has plans to start singing at his performances, Sungha shared that whilst he has taken vocal lessons in the past, he hasnt had much time to practice his vocals. So he would need a bit more time to practice before singing one day at his performance. Sunghas performance with Jason Mraz previously was most memorable and exciting and he hopes to be able to perform again with Jason Mraz at a much bigger scale concert.

Sungha Jung

The press conference ended with a performance by Sungha with his ukelele. One cannot help but feel in awe of his talent as you watch him play the ukelele effortlessly with its sweet sound. It makes you want to pick up the instrument too!
