In this episode of TheEllenShow, we find Ellen DeGeneres interviewing a South Korean student named Daeung Yun. His skills in beatboxing caught Ellen’s attention and that got him invited onto the show. It was his first time in America and although he could understand some English, he needed the help of a translator a few times.
In case you were wondering, beatboxing is a method of vocal percussion that typically imitates drum machines (often the TR-808) with the use of one’s mouth, lips, tongue, and voice. As you can already imagine, it can be quite difficult and quite a feat to perform.
Daeung goes by the moniker “Big Man” because that’s the rough English translation of his name. But when he starts doing those beats, he doesn’t need the help of the translator to let everyone know that he’s got some serious skills. The mesmerizing beats will find you tapping or moving your head to the rhythm before you even know it.
Ellen was so impressed with Big Man’s performance that she said she wanted to make sure that his friends at school knew that he guested on the Ellen show. A placard with the words “I Was On The Ellen Show” stenciled in both English and Korean was presented and Daeung couldn’t help but laugh in delight.
