Chicago’s John Park has been one of the more interesting stories we’ve had the privileged of following the past couple years. First we saw the singer make quite the impression on American Idol a couple seasons ago, only to see his momentum fizzle out quickly in the later rounds of the competition. From there, Park decided to try his luck at a similar Korean TV singing competition – Superstar K – only this time he skyrocketed to the top, finishing first runner up. With the success came a Korean record deal and now finally we are seeing glimpses of his debut album across the Pacific. We hope this will only mean big things; we’re rooting for the kid.
