busking with soul in seoul


Joseph Butso with John Park


Joseph Butso (who also goes by his given Korean name, Choi Junseop) had come to be known by folks in Korea when he had appeared on a popular television show called I Can See Your Voice.  Per the show’s title, the contestants on the show are decided as to whether they can really carry a tune and sing, or cannot at all and are tone deaf –  just by looking at their appearance.

A celebrity panel assist the guest singer(s) in making his (her or their) decision as to whom among the contestants can really sing, and who will be able to sing a duet with them at the end of the show.

If a contestant can fool everyone into believing that he or she can sing, but is actually tone deaf, then that person will win about $5,000.

The guest singer on this particular episode was John Park and he had chosen Joseph (Junseop) among all of the contestants, as being a real macoy singer.  See what happens when it’s time for Joseph to hold up his mic and reveal to everyone whether he really can sing, or is actually tone deaf.




When Joseph was a college student, he had moved to Korea from Georgia, in order to busk for Jesus within the major tourist city locations around country.  Today, he busks with a group of church friends, whether rain or shine.  Here he is singing in Korean “Only a God Like You” by Tommy Walker.  Amen!
