Who is Sungha Jung?

Sungha Jung is a South Korean guitar sensation who is extremely popular on YouTube. With over 4.5 million subscribers on his YouTube channel, he is now one of the very few South Korean celebrities who have made it big on the international social media scenario. His love for guitar comes from his father who played the instrument in his leisure time. His fascination with the guitar started when he was in third grade and the guitar was bigger than him. Sangha was attracted by the music the instrument created and his love soon turned into a passion. Now, as a young man, he has evolved into a true guitarist. His scintillating cover of the theme song of ‘The Pirates of the Caribbean,’ in which he used the fingerstyle technique, has impressed his fans worldwide. Sangha’s fan list includes big names like Yoko Ono, John Lennon’s widow, who often browses his YouTube channel to listen to his fascinating music. World famous guitarists Thomas Leeb, Martin Taylor, Ulli Boegershausen, and Kotaro Oshio are his inspirations. This stylish icon spends a good amount of time learning English in addition to practicing guitar as he knows that this language would help him communicate better in future. The sea and dolphins are his favourite themes, and thus his official blog is named ‘Bluesea’ and is managed by his father. Despite achieving much success at this young age, he remains shy and humble and objects to be termed as a “Guitar Prodigy.” He wants to explore the chorded instrument more to become a pro and has big ambitions for the future.

Career

Sungha Jung became passionate about guitar when he was in primary school. His father Jung Woo-Chang was an amateur guitarist and that attracted the little boy to the instrument even though he was not able to hold a guitar then. Strings were painful for his soft fingers. Sungha’s father then introduced him to the fingerstyle technique of plucking the strings directly with fingertips and Sungha rocked it. Later he took professional lessons from Japanese Jazz Guitarist Hata Shuji. Currently he is learning and practicing drum.

His first album ‘Perfect Blue’ was released on 17 June 2010 when Sangha was merely 14 years old. In 2011 and 2013, he released his second and third albums—‘Irony’ and ‘Paint It Acoustic’ respectively. The mentor and motivator behind these three albums was German Guitarist Ulli Bogershausen.

On 28 April 2014, his fourth album ‘Monologue’ was released which comprised almost exclusively his own compositions. Jung managed to produce this album all by himself. The next year, Jung’s fifth solo album ‘Two of Me’ was released based purely on his compositions. His sixth album ‘L’Atelier’ released in 2016 with nine original compositions and one original arrangement.

His latest album ‘Mixtape’ was released on May 12, 2017. Prior to its release, Jung had launched a preview on YouTube with an introductory note, stating it to be a full cover album consisting of ten old tracks ranging from Pop to Jazz, recreated by him in acoustic guitar. Besides these, he has appeared on stage several times for live performances. A lot of his creations are trending on his YouTube channel ‘jwcfree’ (named after his father, Jung Woo-Chang) and are generating thousands of hits every day.
