Former swimmer and wannabe singer, Jung Doo Hee, who drew viewers’ attention as the husband of actress Yoon Young and the friend of Olympic champion swimmer Park Tae Hwan, failed in the regional preliminaries of Mnet’s Superstar K3.

Jung, who won the silver medal in the 400-meter race at the 2010 Guangzhou Asian Games, appeared on the September 2 broadcast of the talent show, and said that becoming a singer was his dream and that he often sang in Taeneung (Korea National Training Center) karaoke rooms.

Unfortunately, Jung is a much better athlete than a singer. Though Jung caught the eyes of the judges, Yoon Jong Shin, Sung Si Kyung and Park Jung Hyun, with his tall and well-built figure, he had trouble hitting the high notes in the song ‘Footstep’, originally sung by Emerald Castle, and failed to make it to the next stage.

Yoon Jong Shin expressed his regret, saying, “I guess you might have used your breath too much when swimming.”

Despite of his failure, Jung reacted with a hopeful promise, telling the viewers, “See you again on Superstar K 4!!”
