A few topics: Sung Bong Choi and the Stuntmen's Hollywood Stuntmen's Hall of Fame

Sung Bong Choi was born in Seoul and abandoned in an orphanage at the age of 3. He ran away from the institution two years later because he was ill-treated and beaten by the staff. He took a bus to Dae-Jeon and for 10 years he lived as a “street kid’ among criminals and drug addicts in the red light district, sleeping on stairwells and in public washrooms. He said that he survived by scraping a living by selling chewing gum and energy drinks on the street and in a nightclub.While living on the street he was kidnapped by mobsters. He escaped, but he had to return to street life because he had nowhere else to go. Choi was inspired to pursue a career in music when he was 14 years old, after listening to a classical vocalist at the nightclub where he sold chewing gum. He later said that he was particularly fascinated by the sincerity of the vocalist in contrast to the usual type of music heard at the club and tried to find a way to learn music himself by research in an internet cafe. He was refused many times by the music teachers he approached. He later found a teacher, Park Jung-So
