Meet Heejun Han, Your (Rumored) American Idol Semi-Finalist!

Oh man, remember when we started posting about the token Asian American contestants on American Idol when people regularly watched the show? Yeah, I don’t either. But hey, why break the trend now?

This years rumored American Idol 11 Semi-Finalist – rumored, because his audition episode just aired, but spoiler websites have revealed he makes the Top 42 semi-finalists – comes in the form of Heejun Han, a 24 year old non-profit organizer from Flushing, New York. He’s quirky like William Hung, but he’s funny in a deadpan way and wears one of those beanies with a brim which means he’s about a thousand times cooler! And he also belts out a mean Michael Bolton!

Here’s to Heejun making it far in the competition! And if not, no worries: he could always go the way of John Park, an early Idol bootee from two years ago only to become the runner-up on a similar show in Korea, Superstar K2.
