Sangsoon Kim America’s Got Talent

Magician Sangsoon Kim is a contestant on the 18th season of “America’s Got Talent” on NBC. He made his first appearance on AGT during the fifth round of Auditions on June 27, 2023.

The South Korean magician decided to audition for AGT after talking with AGT Veteran Yu Hojin. Hojin made history as the first magician to make it to the finals of America’s Got Talent. Yu Hojin and his bag of tricks duked it out for the one million dollar prize in the Season 17 finale.

“Actually, I met Yu Hojin,” Sangsoon Kim said to the Judges. “We kept talking about AGT, and I thought, ‘Oh, I can go, because I’m better [than him].’”

Kim decided to perform his routine to “That’s What I Want” by Lil Nas X. His illusions had a theme, and all involved shoes and shoeboxes. The shoes changed colors and sizes. At once point, laces were added. At another moment, more shoes came out of one shoe.

The slight of hand had all of the Judges and audience on their feet by the end of the routine.

“We had a magician on earlier [tonight] who we thought was really boring and unoriginal,” Simon Cowell told Kim. “You are the opposite. Seriously. You’re interesting, original, funny — everything we want on this show. You are brilliant.”

Cowell really appreciated the uniqueness of the magic, adding, “That’s his own act, rather than him doing what everyone else does — that’s him.”

Judge Sofia Vergara agreed with Cowell.

“I think your magic feels fresh,” Vergara said. “It seems also like it’s something very you. For example, I see you wearing the shoes you do. And this for sure we’re going to remember.”

Judge Howie Mandel acknowledged throughout the 18 seasons of AGT, magic is not a new trick to the Judges, but Kim still managed to stand out.

“We see a lot of magic,” Mandel said. “Your friend got to the finals, but we’ve had a lot of winners. So, to dazzle us, it’s harder, and you did that: You accomplished it. You were original and something we’ve never seen before.”
