Davichi Vocal Analysis: Lee HaeRi [Newly Updated]

Haeri

Vocal Range

E3 ~ B5 (2 octaves, 3 notes and 1 semitone)

Supported Range

A3/Bb3 ~ F5/F#5

Voice Type

Light Lyric Soprano

Strengths

  • Very well trained middle voice, support up to F#5
  • Almost never strains
  • Optimally resonant in the A4-Eb5 range very often
  • Great pitch, rarely goes flat or sharp
  • Proper tonality is present at almost all times
  • No “weak” registers
  • Very round and full resonance especially in the A4-Eb5 range
  • Decent vocal stamina, can phrase mid mix notes(C5-Eb5) without sounding tired

Weaknesses

  • Sometimes tension in either the jaw or the tongue can arise cutting resonance
  • Resonance in the E5-F#5 is not as large as in the A4-Eb5 range
  • Vibrato can sound uncontrolled and fast on sustained notes
  • Lower register loses much of it’s tonality below A3
  • Head voice approaching the G#5/A5 area is strained
  • True head voice is not used
  • Underestimates the amount of breath needed to sustain notes/phrases at times leaving her sounding out of breath at times.
  • Vibrato can be lost on sustained notes
  • When she does runs they come out messy

Registers

Lower Register: Her lower register is very average, her voice below A3 loses pretty much all of its color and just becomes airy, cloudy, and shallow sounding. Above A3 her voice still lacks a full resonant sound though she is supported.  The sound is more on the comfortable, neutral larynx side than it is full on the support, full sound side. Unlike some artists she doesn’t lower her larynx too much in the lower register to create an artificial fuller sound.

Middle Register: Most well-trained part of her voice and probably one of the best in Kpop. Very resonant, full, and rounded sound in the A4-Eb5 range. In the E5-F5 range she is still resonant, but the sound isn’t as full or as round as it is on the upper fourth and lower fifth octave notes. Resonance on F#5 is rare, normally is just supported. Decent vocal stamina in this register as she is able to phrase mid fifth octave notes without sounding tired. She also is pretty good at doing jumps between notes without loosing pitch. Pitch in this register is normally spot on, but sustained notes can become a bit under pitch; mainly because she is running out of air.

Head Register: Up to F#5/F5 her falsetto is fairly relaxed and supported, but the higher she goes the more she pushes with her throat causing her falsetto to be strained. This register has fairly average production, so in other words it is not resonant, but also isn’t very airy.

Agility

Because HaeRi is a Ballad singer and focuses more on phrasing and the deliverance of emotions and she rarely ever plays with fast or elaborate runs. The ballad singer’s main focus is that their song has emotion and that a message in conveyed. HaeRi does this by using different kinds of phrasing. Watching performances by HaeRi one can tell she puts a considerable amount of effort in the way she phrases her verses and expression. By using different kinds of volumes and with the assistance of the instruments HaeRi can create an array of different atmospheres within one song.

Overall Technique

HaeRi is one of the best and most consistent vocalists in K-Pop when it comes to resonance and support in the mixed voice. Her mixed voice is definitely the register she has taken the most time to develop and train. Her other registers relative to her mixed register are quite underdeveloped and need some TLC, however she uses all three of her registers effectively in her singing.

Out of the Davichi Duo HaeRi is definitely the more skilled one. In Davichi songs she normally takes the more demanding lines, adlibs, and harmonies while MinKyung stays in more comfortable and unchallenging area which in turn does not help MinKyung improve at all. Some examples of this would be Davichi’s performance of “Maze of Love”, where during harmonies HaeRi is singing the higher harmony and during the bridge HaeRi belts a resonant E5 while MinKyung carries on with the chorus. Very similar to this would be their performance of “Do You Know”, where HaeRi belts a resonant F5 and MinKyung again carries on with the chorus. However, this is just how Davichi works and they have been doing this kind of arrangement since debut so obviously it works for them.

HaeRi has fairly good stamina in the middle register, therefore she is quite capable of phrasing mid to higher 5th octave notes without sounding tired or losing resonance. She demonstrates her vocal stamina very well in her performance “빗속을 거늘며” . In that performance during the ending she stays well within the C#5-F#5 range producing many resonant and supported notes. She’s able to stay in that area without sounding tired because she is using her diaphragm for support and power instead of her throat like many idols and singers in general do. Her lighter mix also attributes to her being able to stay in that range with little effort.

Though her mix is very well trained, it is not perfect. Certain vowels prove to be a bit of challenge mainly the Oo vowel or “으”(eu) and “우”(oo) in Korean. This vowel normally poses difficulty for singers because even though the back of the throat is in a more desirable position, the way the lips are contorted make it awkward. In her performance “보이지 않는 사랑” she switches from “나”(Na) which is an open Ah vowel to “우는”(Ooneun) which is an oo sound. She was resonant on both sounds, but there is less resonance and a little bit more difficulty on the oo vowel sound. Not only does a singer need to be resonant, but he or she also needs to make sure all of their vowels are uniform.

HaeRi rarely to never strains in the mix register because her supported range goes up to F#5. Only way HaeRi would strain, aside from just having off days, would be if were to tackle the G5 and above range, but as of right now how HaeRi does on notes above F#5 is unknown because she has yet to do anything above that. Because of her not going above F#5 it’s pretty safe to assume that HaeRi knows her limits and her voice. She probably knows she cannot support G5/G#5 so she doesn’t even attempt it.

Her lower and head register compared to her mixed voice are quite lacking in development. Her lower register below A3 lacks projection and solidity, however she has done comfortable G3’s. Her lack in development in the lower register might also be due to her style. When HaeRi does lower notes instead of trying to support and place them well in the chest she makes the quiet and airy to create a sense of sadness or breathlessness. There are definite signs of discomfort when she phrases low notes especially below A3. Her head register is also lacking development, as she rarely uses this register as well. She has a pretty relaxed falsetto up to G5 but above that she pushes her head voice creating a very tense and strained sound. Though her falsetto is not airy, it isn’t resonant which means she has a lack of connection. Despite its production, she accesses her head voice quite easily.

Musicianship/Musicality

HaeRi’s musicianship does not center around elaborate and fun runs, but more on the beauty and deliverance of phrasing. She plays with many different kinds of phrasing styles to deliver a variety of moods and atmosphere. She normally phrases softly and breathy and then gradually builds it up towards the end of the song. As a ballad singer, how she delivers and how people interpret their singing is extremely important. Not only does she play with different ways of phrasing but also different kinds of dynamics. She goes back and forth between piano, mezzo forte and forte sounds a lot in her performances. She demonstrates many different dynamic plays and phrasing in her performance “I love you”.

  1. Wow she’s really good Mid-range wise! I didn’t know she was this good! So does she have the best mid-range in kpop? So it’s better than Ailee and Hyorin, I think Haeri is the best!

    1. i agree! Ailee is really good too, but Haeri holds her notes very well and hits them effortlessly too
      so should deff be a great vocalist or good to great. i don’t think she should be the same as hyorin

      1. Haeri has a worse lower range, no agility, not a very developed head voice, mostly sings with falsetto, her mix is better than Hyorin’s in a way, but all she has is her mix, so she can’t be a great vocalist just because she has a good mix, that’s not enough on its own.

  2. Wow i didn’t know that she was that good! I’m a big fan of yours guys, it’s very nice to know how skilled kpop vocalist are and i’m looking forward for your future works and wondering what you guys can say about Bi Rain’s vocals, he is an icon in asia and from my point of view his voice is amazing but i will really want to know of he is as good as i believe.
    Also can i ask for a small review about the vocals of amarican artists such as Justin Bieber and Bruno Mars? Thank you and keep doing the amazing job that you guys do!

    1. Haha thank you for the comment. I’ll reply for the writer of the article, if that’s okay?
      Rain is a baritone and that’s pretty much his one uniqueness, since he is a soloist and a popular singer/dancer. He has a lower tone but he is not that vocally skilled, he doesn’t have a very well developed lower range for a baritone nor is his mixed range very good, he uses a lot of throat when singing from what I’ve heard but this is just off of the top of my head so this could all change.
      Justin Bieber is quite ..meh? lol He sings with his throat and through his nose, I don’t know too much about him and Bruno Mars has a beautiful head voice but he has a very weak lower range, strains a lot in his mix, a mix that goes very high into like a woman-range and also his head voice can sound strained as well, that’s the basics of their singing since I don’t know the full details of their vocals. Is that okay, does that kind of answer your question?

      1. Fizeram um ranking no youtube (Haeri vs Ailee vs Hyorin vs Taeyeon), e um usuário falou isso:
        C5-Haeri/Ailee
        C#5-Haeri/Hyorin
        D5-Hyorin
        Eb5-Haeri: Her 1st Eb5 was GLORIOUS!
        E5-Hyorin; Haeri is a close 2nd
        F5-Haeri. MARVELOUS F5s.
        F#5-Haeri/Hyorin tie

        The winner is Haeri. I’ve NEVER heard of Haeri ’til this video, and I gotta admit she’s a remarkable belter. She knows how to mix well. From what I hear, she may possibly develop a Full-Lyric instrument. The other girl who didn’t win one single note, Taeyeon, she’s not ready for 5th octave notes yet. I’m sure she’s a decent singer, though. Haeri/Ailee > Hyorin > Taeyeon.

        Eu sei que é meio impossível, já que Ailee é a cantora do k-pop mais forte atualmente, e Haeri está a uma categoria abaixo dela, mas em que você concorda e em que você não concorda no que eu te mandei aqui em cima?

      2. Você me mostra esse comentário como eu tivesse assistido o vídeo. Juro que parece você não le as análises. A Ailee não é melhor que a Haeri por causa da voz mista dela, ele é melhor como um todo. A voz mista da Haeri é melhor que a da Ailee. Isso não precisa ser perguntado senhor, as análises estão todas aqui. É só fazer um esforcinho e ler.
        Se você fizer mais perguntas para as quais você poderia achar as respostas lendo as análises, eu não vou responder porque eu não tenho tempo.

  3. i find more and more Korean female vocalists now end their notes with a sharp increase in pitch (if you get what I’m saying), for example like in the forgotten flower video, and also prominent in IU’s high notes. I used to connect that with shortness of breath, because sometimes when you know you’re running out of it you give one last push and stop. Not sure if that’s really the case but I see more people now choosing it as a style choice. Not very pleasing to my ears when it’s done over and over again.

  4. OMG. Finally, Haeri’s analysis is updated. I’ve been waiting for it for ages already and I’m not disappointed when I saw this. Her mixed belt is really one of the best in Korea ^_^

    (BTW, to be honest, though, I really prefer Minkyung over her because MK’s voice sounds sweeter. But still, I like Davichi and its talented and beautiful members ^_^)

    1. Aww thank you. I’m glad you enjoyed reading the analysis. Yes, HaeRi’s mix is truly well trained. We are all entitled to our opinion. I agree HaeRi’s voice isn’t for everybody it has a harsh, piercing quality to it at times.

      Like

      1. Honestly, I think Minkyung should focus more on her lower extension since Haeri already has a powerful higher one. This way, they will cover each other’s weaknesses. I believe that is how a group should work ^_^

        (Well, I just want to share this crazy dream of mine. If I ever become a vocalist, I want to work on a group, instead of a soloist so that it will be okay if I just focus on one or two registers since someone will take place on the part that I’m lacking. Yes, I’m crazy so better shut up. XD)

    1. I think Haeri is only a competent singer, if it’s not because of her extensive support in her mixed voice. I mean, you see, she doesn’t have an agile voice and her lower and upper extensions are not very well developed to be considered a great vocalist.

      I’m a fan of Davichi, by the way! ^_^

      Like

      1. Agility is very subjective to the genre the vocalist sings, it’s not completely necessary. She is definitely a good vocalist because her mix is THAT much more impressive than other female vocalists. Her falsetto isn’t so bad, her resonance is consistent, her dynamic control is good, her breath control and intonation too. Her lower range isn’t special, but that’s about it.

    1. It was a very bright F#5, but it had resonance. It is small resonance, it could’ve been placed better, maybe let’s just call it supported.

      Like

    1. Why? Vocal range has nothing to do with her vocal ability. Her modal range is E3 ~ F#5, Hyorin’s is C3 ~ F#5. The only difference is Hyorin can sing lower and has a sung with a higher falsetto. I’m sure Haeri CAN sing higher in falsetto, she just hasn’t.

      Like

      1. Well it’s mostly because Hyorin can go both higher and lower, but also because Hyorin sings outside her comfort zone more often and Haeri doesn’t try to sing things she can’t sing well.

      2. yeah i notice. even when haeris not out her comfort zone, she can hit those notes better than a lot of idols 0.o yeah hyorin sings more variety of songs than haeri. That’s why i prefer haeri singing balladsxD

    1. Baek Ji Young? I asked the others and we came to a conclusion that she’d most likely be rated as average or average to above average due to her less than developed airy lower range, tight and squeezed mixed voice, inward placement and overly fast forced vibrato.

  10. It’s interesting how she’s one of the best vocalists, but has a smaller range than nearly everyone 3.0 and above, just goes to show that wide vocal range doesn’t equal to good vocalist (and vice versa) although I noticed that with guys, it’s only the weaker ones that has a range less than 3 octaves and even with Woohyun, it was mentioned that he could possibly have a wider range. I guess because it’s easier for males to sing high than it is for female to sing low.

    Like

    1. Wow this song is really pretty, but I’m sorry it’s not really a head voice there’s still a slight falsetto quality, but it’s close to head voice. I wish she had a more developed head register..or even lower register just something to balance out her mix.

    1. Davichi is a stronger duo than Lina and Dana just because Minkyung is consistently better than Dana in her mix and her head voice, much cleaner in placement and support, Dana’s lower range is incomparable though. Lina has a better head voice than Haeri, but Haeri has the best mixed voice for a female idol and it’s hard to compare to that. It’s really nitpicking at this point.

  12. hi, i was wondering if haeri have the best mix among idol only or all vocalist below great category? it seems her being able to support F#5 is great, but so does other female vocalist such ailee seungyeon shannon and younha perhaps?

    also, it stated haeri rarely goes off pitch, is it related to her being a perfect pitch or not?

    Like

    1. Well yes she also does have the best mix for females below the great category, which for now are mostly idols in our blog. Shannon and Younha never really supported up to F#5. No it just means she has a good sense of pitch, perfect pitch isn’t that common.

    1. Actually I heard Lara Fabian’s throat closing slightly, whereas Haeri’s throat was more opened and her placement less bright. Lara’s was brighter but I hear glottal tension closing the upper part of her throat slightly, whereas Haeri is using more of a push of air and is closing her throat less. It is worthy to note that Lara Fabian actually hit F#5 and Haeri hit F5 and so it isn’t fair to compare it when they’re not even singing the same note.

  13. At 3:27 Haeri put a strong E5 and a very soft D5 next to each other that creates a very good effect. I think her E5 is supported but how about her D5, it sounds like falsetto, not head voice.

    Like

    1. She is not that nasal, but she does sound closed and tight when she sings higher, her falsetto is too airy so the transitions make her sound thin. 1:28 the vibrato is a bit laggy and she’s flat. She doesn’t have exceptional technique, not from this clip.

  17. Davichi used to sing a Vietnamese song with a Vietnamese singer. Especially, in 2:55 the Vietnamese lady and Haeri belt E5 respectively. I think both of them CAN support that E5, but who seems to have stronger sense of support?

    Like

    1. I disagree that she has a strong sense of support or that she can support E5. Everytime she sings I hear tongue and glottal tension, she’s pushing the sound too much and there’s a lot of tension on the E5 at 2:15. I don’t know if it has to do with the Vietnamese language, cause I don’t speak it so I don’t know if singing like that is absolutely necessary for having the right accent. 2:55 I hear pitchy runs and lots of throat tension. Haeri’s E5 is resonant though.

      1. Yeah, thank you and love you bro. And one more question (sorry you know me already, I always have a lot of questions). It’s Sohyang’s E5 in 6:11

        Both Haeri’s E5 (in video above 2:55) and Sohyang’s E5 have resonance, but it’s quite obvious that the weight in Haeri’s E5 is larger, I mean Haeri’s E5 is heavier. But, in fact, Sohyang’s E5 is supposed to be heavier with greater amount of weight because Sohyang is a FULL lyric soprano while Haeri is a LIGHT lyric soprano. Could you explain it to me?

        Like

      2. Sohyangs mixed voice is placed high, because she can mix higher so dynamically her mix isn’t as heavy. Proportionally Haeri has more chest which is why her mix is placed lower and is closer to her chest voice. That’s the difference, the balance of the mix and the weight.

  18. Thank you for your answer above. I also see someone quote this performance:

    I notice that her E5 in 1:21 doesn’t sound very good, a little bit squeezing, lack of freedom, pushing, and high larynx. I don’t know, but when compare to her E5 in 3:04, it’s much more better. How do you think?

    Like

    1. It wasn’t resonant and there was a bit of pushing, but her larynx was neutral the note itself was supported she just could have been more open, it’s what I would call an “ok” note. The E5 at 3:04 was more relaxed and open so yeah, she just relaxed into more because she’s doing a little bit of a scoop rather than hitting the E5 straight on.

      3. Hey bro I’ve just translated this article and here is the site. After reading it Chinese fans are impressed by her middle register and gave lot reviews on her lower register. Thank you so much for your analysis And hope you like it – http://mcfyangga.lofter.com/post/1e5a6720_dc79099
        Furthermore, here is a new video of Haeri which is a cover of How Far I’ll Go. It seems that she would sing for the Korean version but I don’t sure. Wish you like it!

    1. That is a B5 in a tight strained falsetto which is included in her vocal range video used in this analysis. If it were a head voice, it would’ve been mentioned in the analysis. ^ ^

  20. i saw a comment above, haeri sing How Far I’ll Go and i was like whoaa is she sing it all in mix? i guess it is free of strain and full resonance throughout? i find it rare for a full song sung in free strain. but of course haeri can do it

  21. Hello! I was wondering why the best performance came to be “Forgotten Flower” not “Sunflower” and would you please give some comparative analysis on these two performances? Many thanks!

  22. Hello my dear, her E5 in 3:18 is certainly supported, But it’s resonant, isn’t it?
    And I do watch do lastest video about how to support, you said we have to learn to sing softly at the beginning and you use Sohyang as an example. I feel that you encourage us to be heady, or place our voice higher a little bit. But Haeri uses a lot of chest voice in her mix and her high notes are still supported. Therefore, I wonder that is it true if I think being heady a little bit is better than chesty?

      1. I think that singing with more chest voice is fine if it doesn’t damage your voice at all, but light and bright should be the way to go if you’re going up your range. Singing softly enables you build up the muscles to add more chestiness. I’m sure that Haeri can belt softly and just sings with more chestiness to add more emotion that appeals to more people. Singing with chestiness with bad technique is worse than singing with headiness with bad technique because there’s more pressure on the vocal chords.

  23. É verdade que ela tem o melhor mixer para uma cantora feminina no k-pop?
    U.Ji – Inferior
    Haeri – Mixer
    Shannon – Superior

    Por que vocês não colocam nas Strengths que ela tem um dos melhores mixers do kpop? Eu só vi isso quando vocês falaram do registro misto, ah, e… Tiffany suporta G3/G#3, isso faria dela uma vocalista de mais ou menos qual classificação, se as técnicas fossem mais adequadas?
    E a nota de Yuju em torno de 2:29~2:32 foi uma Whistle note? Obrigado =D

    1. Mixed? Sim entre as ídolas. Entre outras cantoras, não tanto já que temos a Son Seungyeon. Porque não colocar? Porque é uma análise mais velha e não fui eu quem escrevi. Nós todos temos estilos diferentes de escrever e de elogiar vocalistas. Eu não entendi a sua pergunta sobre a Tiffany…Whistle? Não, é um F#5 em voz mista.

      1. Ahhh, entendi, quando vocês pretendem atualizar algumas análises como por exemplo Jessica, Minkyung…, e o que eu quis dizer sobre a Tiffany foi que numa sessão de comentários eu vi que você falou “Tiffany tem suporte de G3/G#3 e mesmo assim é uma vocalista média”, eu fiquei pensando se o suporte dela poderia ajudar a ela em algo em sua técnica vocal, como por exemplo, se ela tivesse uma técnica um pouco melhor com esse range, qual seria mais ou menos sua classificação? Foi essa a minha dúvida, desde já obrigado.

      2. Ah sabe a gente não pretende atualizar essas análises, pelo menos não sem elas terem melhoria na técnica delas. Isso é com o Pandayeu de qualquer forma. O que eu quis dizer foi que apesar de ela ter apoio mais grave do que a maioria das outras vocalistas medianas, isso não é o suficiente para ele ser outra coisa além de média. Isso só faz dela uma melhor vocalista mediana que elas. A classificação não mudaria, a não ser que ela mudasse muitos hábitos como o jeito dela usar a garganta tão grave na voz mista dela.
