Hi, kim
It sounds like "horrible" to me! But I can't see anything related to "willingness" and the like of it... :(

Hi Kim,
I agree with 'Hello', the words hung bo sound like "horrible " to me too.
The characters for that are '恐怖'

I think the first syllable is hang2 肯 'willing', but I can't figure
out what the second syllable is supposed to be.

maybe his "hung bo" just means “肯0番” in Cantonese.
