Almost immediately after Asia Champs, Bigman’s wildcard video went viral, gaining over a million views practically overnight (Currently at 5 million views). Various viral video channels promoted the video, prompting his appearance on The Ellen Degeneres Show on September 13, 2017.
Bigman listens to a lot of Pop music and wants to eventually become a composer/songwriter. He states that his biggest influence is Gene Shinozaki, who shares a very similar style. They both focus on creating songs rather than battle routines and use a colorful mix of techniques to create a single melody. He started beatboxing after watching many YouTube videos of beatboxing.
Like most new school beatboxers, Bigman started beatboxing after watching many YouTube videos of beatboxing.
Currently, Bigman is a high school student in Korea and is juggling school work and his newfound fame.
Bigman accidentally deleted the original entry video off his YouTube channel, citing that he felt people would make fun of him. He quickly re-uploaded the original video, though past the deadline. HBB staff then confirmed it was the original video and not a resubmission.
