CNNGo: Netizens claimed Choi falsified his background on TV by not including that he is a graduate of Daejeon Arts High School and majored in singing. TVN representatives quickly came forward and stated Choi had told the panel he had graduated from the arts high school and that the segment had been edited out due to "time constraints."
Call me a pessimist, but I always view these shows as exaggerated for entertainment. He's an amazing singer, but he's also a trained singer, not a street urchin with a life-saving gift.
Still, I love reality shows. :)
