Hidden Singer is a popular TV program here in Korea. A famous singer and 5 talented impostors sing a well known song by the original artist behind a total of 6 closed doors. Each singer sings a line or two from the song as the next takes over starting from the beginning to the end. A panel of celebrity judges and the live audience have the difficult task of recognizing the genuine singer amongst the others. It’s not as easy as it may sound since the people who serve as impostors are extremely talented and have fooled even the most discerning ears. Lee Seung Gi’s mentor, Lee Sun Hee, will be featured on tomorrow night’s show which airs on August 16th at 11pm KST on Channel JTBC. Here’s a preview clip of Lee Seung Gi listening to all 6 clips of his mentor’s trademark song, “To J”:

English translation:Lee Seung Gi,” Because I’ve heard her voice during warm ups as well as during broadcasts, wouldn’t I be able to recognize it? ” (Caption says: Best student Lee Seung Gi, Find your teacher’s voice!! Lee Sun Hee listening evaluation)
Male voice: Please listen carefully and find the genuine singer. Number 1.
Seung Gi looking surprised: What’s this?
Male voice: Number 2. Number 3. Number 4. Number 5. Number 6.
Seung Gi bursts into laughter. (LOL! His confidence before the clips were played seems to have faded and I love the adorable heodang expression on his face after Number 5)
Seung Gi,”This isn’t by any chance a hidden camera, right? It feels like this is one person who just recorded on different days. Can you replay it for me just one more time?” 😛
Caption on black background: Confirm it for yourself on 8/16 (Sat) night, 11pm on Hidden Singer’s original broadcast.
Seung Gi: Oh come on, don’t be like that. You have to tell me. How can you leave me hanging after making a person so curious?
Caption as he speaks says: [Even (Lee Sun Hee’s) best student Lee Seung Gi has been thrown into a state of confusion]
I’m so looking forward to watching this program tomorrow night 😀 . I will post any updates if live streaming links are available.
Here is an English translation I did for the lyrics to Lee Sun Hee’s trademark song, “To J”:
J in the subtle wind
J as I see your image
Today as well, I quietly
long for you
J in my dreams the other night
J the image that I met
Deep in my heart
Forever you remain
J even if a beautiful summer’s day
were to disappear far away
J my love
still has not changed
J I can’t forget you
J I love you
J where we walked
J that path of memories
Tonight as well, I alone
I am walking it alone
