American Idol Heejun Han: “Jimmy Iovine is Such a Mean Guy!” (VIDEO)

When asked by the New York Post, after Thursday’s American Idol Top 13 reveal, whether he’ll be stepping up the funny, Heejun Han answered, “I don’t know if you’re aware of it, but this is a singing competition! Not about being funny!”

Heejun is probably referring to Idol mentor, Jimmy Iovine who, when remarking on Heejun’s Top 13 boys performance for the results show said, “This isn’t American Comedian. This is American Idol.”

Jimmy Iovine is such a mean guy!” said Heejun when asked about his remarks, “I never knew that, he could be a little nicer, right?”

Heejun also talks about breaking Asian stereotypes.  Not all Asians score high on their SATs–the Top 13 contestant swears he only got 200 on his.  When the NYP writer mentioned that  you get 400 points for signing your name, Heejun quipped, “Well, I got that wrong!”
