That said, unlike others who have been part of these manipulations, Heejun seems a little more of a loose cannon. I could see him spilling the beans later this year, maybe to the NY Post or an NY radio station, about how the producers created a "storyline" for his "character".

I LOVE HEEJUN.
[Spoiler alert!] Ha! @AmericanIdol's Heejun Han was asked what he'll do next and said, "I guess I'll watch The Voice." Lol! CC: @NBCTheVoice

I am finding this season incredibly boring, except for Heejun. But I am enjoying The Voice! American Idol will definitely be on FF mode for me now. I did have one other favorite, but her performance this week was meh.
It was entertaining at first, in a Sanjaya kind of way
In no way was Heejun comparable to Sanjaya. Heejun has a better voice with a lovely tone. Sanjaya was attractive to the teen girls more than anything, and I doubt Heejun had that audience. And for the record - I couldn't stand Sanjaya.

Sanjaya was a much better singer. And a better dresser.
There were very few tears from the other contestants for Heejun. I think the rest of the contestants were probably tired of his nonsense and want to get down to the business of competing. Unlike Heejun, who just seems to crave attention, these kids want a career in music. As Heejun said himself, he wants to be a star. This was his biggest, best and only shot at it so I hoped he got all the attention he needs.

LOL! I noticed that when he was having his "redemption arc", the only people contributing to it were the judges and Jimmy. I was actually a little bit offended on his behalf that Jimmy was psychoanalyzing Heejun. Girl please, it's just a reality singing contest.
I know we've seen some obvious producer shenanigans on this show, but perhaps nothing has made me want to call BS as much as Heejun's "redemption arc" tonight. They really think home viewers will eat up everything they sell them, including the notion that Heejun has experienced some kind of spontaneous transformation.
His answer on whether his humor was a “defense mechanism”:
“I have no idea where they get that knowledge from. What the heck is defense mechanism? What is that? People do watch lots of dramas and CSI–they are just way over thinking it. I’m just a funny guy who happened to be on American Idol. I was just being myself throughout the whole competition.”
I was watching some exit interviews and I really like his perspective on the whole thing. I think he has a good head on his shoulder and wish him the best in everything he does in the future. I don't know if he will make it in the entertainment industry but I think he's very charismatic young man.
