D3 ~ A5 (2 octaves, 3 notes and 1 semitone)
[could possibly go higher]
A3/Bb3 ~ C5/C#5
MinKyung produces Decent/OK notes up to C5/C#5 with some open-throat notes and some resonant notes. She rarely strains due to that she rarely goes out of her tessitura.
Points for Improvement
MinKyung can have some intonation problems in a performance, though not many. She also doesn’t always sing with a risen palate, which causes her to not always have the best of placement. She also has throat tension at times. She also at times can be inconsistent within her supported range. Also because HaeRi does all the difficult parts in Davichi songs, MinKyung is never truly under pressure to do better outside of tessitura/improve because HaeRi does it for her. MinKyung can also sometimes have an unstable vibrato.
Lower register: She takes the lower parts in Davichi songs, but isn’t really supported below Bb3, she isn’t complete air, but not really supported either.
Middle Register: Does all right up to C5/C#5 producing OK/Decent notes up there at times. Has some okay notes above C#5 and a resonant E5.
Head Voice: She has shown head voice before, but mainly uses falsetto.
She hasn’t shown agility; however, due to her specific voice type she has the potential to improve her agility.
Breath support and control: Minkyung has okay support, and uses a healthy technique within her comfort zone (normally always supported, though at times can not be). However, once she is out of her comfort zone, Minkyung’s voice can become tense, shrill and throaty, but at times MinKyung gets it right and produces okay/decent or even resonant notes outside of supported range with an acceptable vibrato, at times. Overall, the control of her voice is above average, and her voice doe not really shake, but has the tendency to wobble when she uses vibrato. Minkyung does not seem to have good control over her falsetto as it can be weak and excessively airy. All in all, she has pretty much healthy support down to Bb3 and up to C5, but not much below or above.
Resonance: On rare occasions.
Mixing: Has a more balanced mix than some KPOP idols, but is still brighter.
Tone Productions: Sings with a risen soft palate at times, so nasality isn’t very common with her. Her tone is very creamy,girly, and bright like majority of Light Lyric Sopranos.
