The young and talented South Korean fingerstyle guitarist, SungHa Jung is back to Malaysia again for the third time for his solo concert. The press conference was held on 22nd June 2013 at The Guitar Store, Subang Jaya.

SungHa stated that he is very excited to be back in Malaysia again even though he only arrived at Malaysia yesterday and did not have much time to explore around yet. He was looking forward to his solo concert which was held in DBKL Auditorium Hall and mentioned that fans should keep an eye on him as there will be surprises for those who are attending the concert.

During the press conference, SungHa mentioned that he had performed in Jason Mraz’s concert in South Korea recently. He admitted that his dream came true as he was given a chance to perform with Jason Mraz. SungHa also collaborated with singer Roy Kim, winner of a singing competition programme - Superstar K, whom he met during Jason Mraz’s concert. SungHa revealed that he would like to collaborate with Roy again in the future. When he was asked whether which American artiste he would like to collaborate with, SungHa picked the talented Bruno Mars who charmed audience all around the world. SungHa looked up to Australian guitarist, Tommy Emmanuel as his role model.

SungHa shared that “Nostalgia” is his favourite soundtrack from his latest album, Paint It Acoustic. It was a song that he composed himself during his guitar practice and there was no special story behind the song. Since he is still young, he shyly admitted that he does not have any love experience yet which he can put them into his compositions.

The guitar genius, SungHa will be starting his US tour on March next year. US fans should definitely anticipate this! Since he is currently busy with his tour, he shared that he had to home school to balance his studies and he regrets not spending much time with his friends.

As a solo finger guitarist, SungHa does not have any experience playing instruments with a band. He thought that it would be nice if he could have a band. He started playing electric guitar a year ago and was honoured to be the spokesperson for Gibson. Besides electric guitar, he also attended vocal lessons and it would take some time for him to sing his composed songs in his concert when he was asked whether he had any thought of singing his composed songs.

SungHa said that he didn’t expect that he will be this successful on Youtube. His father recorded his first video, a video of him playing guitar when he was 10 years old. He did not know what was Youtube at that age. SungHa mentioned that many things had changed by comparing his latest album and his first debut album, technical skills was one of them.

At the end of the press conference, SungHa showed off skills of his on his ukulele. It was a  jaw-dropping performance from him.
