Sungha Jung (Korean: 정성하; born September 2, 1996) is a South Korean acoustic fingerstyle guitarist who has risen to fame on YouTube and other sites. As of October 2013, his channel has more than 2,240,000 subscribers.
Sungha plays a variety of guitar pieces that cover a broad range of genres.
Sungha used to not have tabs for the music that he played in his videos. He just listened and picked them up directly from the sound source in videos available on the internet. It usually takes him two to three days to practice and videotape a new piece but sometimes up to a week for more difficult ones.  In a video he recommended the 'all ears method' for those who like his style of guitar playing and want to learn it.
Sungha has won 15 awards on YouTube, including 6 "#1" awards. Sungha's video with the most views is the one which shows him playing the theme from "Pirates Of The Caribbean".
In 2010, he was featured on Narsha's solo album "NARSHA", and in 2011, he performed in the US with Trace Bundy, as well as touring in Scandinavia and Japan. He has also performed "I'm Your's" with Jason Mraz, who described Sungha as "amazing" and his "hero", in 2013.
Sungha acted as Ahn Hyeok in the 2011 Korean movie, The Suicide Forecast.
Sungha has composed 18 pieces as of February 2011, two of which are featured in his debut album, "Perfect Blue". He released his second album, "Irony", on 21 September 2011. His 3rd album "Paint It Acoustic" came out on 15 April 2013.
