Famous South Korean professional acoustic finger-style guitarist Sungha Jung will be coming to Malaysia once again for Sungha Jung Live in Penang 2013.

Sungha Jung is a South Korean professional acoustic fingerstyle guitarist who rose to fame worldwide through YouTube videos of him playing acoustic versions of songs by U2, Michael Jackson, Bon Jovi, The Eagles and Extreme.

As a child, he watched his father play the guitar and eventually picked it up at the age of nine. His talent was noticed when he would watch videos online and be able to play the music within a short time and without the original tabs. 
In 2012, he did a collaboration with YG's 2NE1. They did two acoustic versions of 2NE1's hit songs "Lonely" and "I Love You". Later in 2012, he also was on stage with YG's and Big Bang's G-Dragon, on G-dragon's solo performance "That XX"

The 16-year-old's first visit to Penang  was last year and it was a complete sold out concert but don't worry if you missed it because he's back again to live in Penang
