Supported Range

C3 ~ Bb4/B4

Voice Type

Light-Lyric Tenor

Strengths/Achievements

  • Strongest vocalist in B1A4
  • Arguably one of the strongest male idol vocalists
  • Resonance is very present and consistent in his voice
  • Able to support his voice even as high as B4
  • Healthy vibrato produced consistently
  • Intonation is quite impeccable
  • Able to support his voice even as low as B2 at times
  • Improvement from debut till present
  • Able to keep a relaxed and connected falsetto even as high as D5/Eb5/E5
  • Versatile vocalists, able to sing many different genres of music and modify his voice accordingly
  • Although not having a very agile voice, melismas can be done with very good precision and accuracy
  • Does not try to sing in ways that he can’t or outside his supported range, smart vocalist

Weaknesses

  • Falsetto is under explored and his least developed register
  • Lower range is often airy and quiet, often stylistically
  • Upper mix around B4 loses consistency and becomes more shouted
  • Mixed voice can be overly chesty
  • Nasality can be present in his voice
  • Jaw/lip tension can be present in his singing
  • Musicianship is almost inexistent in his singing

Registers

  • Lower register: One of the better lower ranges amongst K-pop tenors, Sandeul is capable of supporting his voice as low as B2 at times, although he’s only consistently able to show support down to D3, without stylistic airiness getting in the way.
  • Mixed register: One of the most consistent mixed ranges amongst K-pop idol tenors, Sandeul not only has improved this range, but also shows a consistent ability to bring resonance forward into his voice, keep tonal accuracy, good tone production and stamina. Mixed range can often be overly chesty, that being its only main flaw.
  • Upper register: Though not a bad register, his falsetto is his least developed register. He doesn’t often try to sing in this register, but when he does, there’s a clear gap of power and resonance between his falsetto and the rest of his voice. Nonetheless, he’s able to sing in this register with control and a relaxed throat up until E5.

Agility

As a light-lyric, his voice has the natural ease with the upper register and the ability to stay in this register and produce all sorts of different ornamentations. Having that said, Sandeul is not a R&B vocalist, nor does he rely on vocal agility to deliver his musical choices. If the time is brought to him where he needs to show competence in note separation, melismas and vocal agility, he’s capable of producing slow to medium tempo vocal runs, with very good pitch accuracy and note separation, such as in his OST “아파서“. Not only does he possess the control and accuracy of pitch, but also he’s able to stay in a very high range and still control his pitch and keep up the stamina to maintain the climax of a song, in occasions such as “왜 둘만이 있으면 (Just The Two Of Us)“, “빗속의 여인” and “This Time Is Over“.

Overall analysis

B1A4’s main vocalist, Sandeul, is one K-pop’s strongest male vocalists and tenors. Amongst all the tenors and idols in the current K-pop industry, it’s hard to actually see male vocalists with an even column of sound throughout all of their register, if not at least two, who’s consistent, professional and is also musically and vocally versatile. His voice naturally has a strong and forward sound to it and due to his technique, he’s able to effortlessly sing in most of the tenor range, with which he’s able to show the best of a tenor, where his voice naturally lies. His tone is very youthful and bright, but with a strong piercing quality to it.

His lower range possesses a very forward quality to it, it’s often very masculine sounding, bringing out the tone of his voice even in his lowest notes. He is able to keep a relaxed, stable larynx, a mask and chest placed lower range and a very stable tone production consistently down to D3, as heard in “사랑 Two“, “사랑 그놈“, “안 오실까 봐“. Many times, Sandeul opts for a more airy quality sound when he descends below D3, which may mislead the listener into thinking that he’s uncomfortable in a range below D3, as heard in “코스무스 피어있는 길” and “잊혀진 계절” but it is often through such performances that he also shows the ability to disconnect his vocal cords and create breathy, not supported sounds for stylistic purposes, and then in the same performances, he shows the ability again to hit the same low notes, with a connected sound, connected vocal cords, support and projection. Examples include his C3’s in “비내리는 명동거리“, “유리의 성” and “그녀가 처음 울던 날 (The First Day She Cried)“, and his B2’s in “빗속의 여인” and  “꽃순이를 아시나요“. Even then, as he descends below B2 very rarely and the only times he’s done so, his voice becomes considerably less projected and more airy, it’s possible to say that below B2, he loses the support in his voice, such as the A2 in “사랑 그놈“.

Although he’s able to show a more advanced control of his lower range, his mixed range is where Sandeul shows the most control, versatility and power. He has shown improvement in the consistency, support and mixing of this range from debut till mid-late 2012. From performances such as “그 흔한 남자여서” and “찍사랑“, where he used to show some tension and less support above G4.  As time went by, he showed a very good improvement in his vocal delivery and his support in his mixed range, consistently hitting A4’s throughout his performances, with an even column of sound, resonance and control, such as in “내 방식도래의 사랑“, “남자답게 사는법” and “잊혀진 계절“. The consistency of tone production and resonance still stays as he ascends up high into the Bb4 area and B4 area, although then that’s where his only weakness shows. Due to how heavily he relies on a chest-dominant mixed voice, he loses the ability to expand his range higher above C5, also showing a lack of ease and brightness in tone, due to how much chest and how little head there is in his mixed voice. For that reason, although he may be able to sing Bb4’s with consistent resonance, such as in “왜 둘만이 있으면 (Just The Two Of Us)“, “밥만 잘 먹더라” and “차표 한장“, and B4’s such as in “해바라기” and”빗속의 여인“, he starts to lose the stamina and requires a lot more muscle coordination to stay up in such a high belting range. The excessive chest voice in his mix can also lead to damage in his vocal cords if he overuses them, which is unlikely for Sandeul, because he generally shows no tendency in singing outside of his supported range. The few times he has sung above B4, such as in “그것만이 내새상“, his voice shows less power and becomes more pushed and tight, not completely losing the support but instead losing the freedom he possesses in his lower mixed notes. However, he consistently shows resonance up until Bb4 and even resonance and support up until B4, with less consistency depending on his condition, letting his voice become a little more shouted and less relaxed such as in “The Time Is Over“.

Sandeul’s falsetto range is not only his least developed register, but also his least used register. He is capable of placing his falsetto very forward into his mask, producing a bright and projected sound, but in this register he loses the fullness and the control he possesses in the rest of his range. It isn’t a badly developed register, but it could explain the lack of head voice present in his mix, due to the lack of development of a true full head voice. Having said that, he is able to switch into this register without much effort, such as in the rehearsal of “왜 둘만이 있으면 (Just The Two Of Us)” and “나는 그대품안에“. The control and pitch became less precise in this register, although still much better than average. He has shown the ability to stay relaxed in this register during Fan signings and when singing with his fellow bandmate, Jinyoung, and sing up to D5 and E5 without tensing up or closing his throat. Due to how under used this register is, he has rarely gone high in this register, but he has been able to hit A5 before in a song for a Samsung Galaxy Promotion, with other K-pop stars, where he placed the note very forward in his mask and used an extra push of air to get it out, showing less control and a bit of tension in this register.

Sandeul’s consistency of tone production and support throughout his registers aren’t his only strengths. He also has consistently shown a very healthy, controlled and stable vibrato throughout his range, stamina to sustain high belting notes for long periods of times and control of his musical dynamics. At times his voice may become slightly nasal and have a whiny quality to it, which most often than not, is done on purpose and is a style he’s going for. With that, he shows a lot of control of where to place his voice and how he wants it to sound, showing yet another strength of his, his versatility. Not only can he sing ballads, from the top to the bottom of his range, with control in dynamics, airiness, softness, crescendos and diminuendos, such as “그대 앞에 난 촛불이어라” and “하나의 사랑“, but also he’s able to bring forth his voice into a smooth style of singing, with a more R&B-like sound and a rhythmic vocal approach, such as in “추억속의 그대“, a strong and present vocal performance when singing musicals, such as in “사랑이 온다면“. His versatility expands to Trot, Folk, and even jazz, such as in “나는 그대품안에” where he also sings a verse of “Fly Me To The Moon”. Even when the song isn’t a simple 4/4 time signature and requires a more 3/4, waltz-like time signature, where there’s a slight different push in tempo, such as in “코스무스 피어있는 길“, where he shows no struggle and no deviation of timing.

As a vocalist and entertainer, one could say Sandeul is one of K-pop’s most underrated vocalists. Not only is he a versatile vocalist, but consistent and has very superior technique. Even then, he still has room for improvement, at times he creates tension in his voice with his jaw and lip positions and he pushes a bit as well. For future improvements, Sandeul’s only real concern would be working on his mixed range, creating a pure and strong head voice and allowing that to balance out his mixed voice so that he can extend and expand his range further and show even more versatility. With the rate of improvement and the consistency he’s shown, one can only expect good things from the bright future Sandeul has ahead of him as a musician, artist and vocalist.

Musicianship

His only true biggest weakness is his lack of musicianship. As a vocalist, Sandeul possesses one of the healthiest and most consistent techniques. He’s a musical person, hears and understands music well and is able to perform many different style. Although that all is true, Sandeul lacks the natural ability to improvise, create new melodies, new rhythms and newly personalized versions of the songs he sings. He has a very straight-forward way of singing, doesn’t try to create things he can’t create and is a cautious, smart vocalist who doesn’t try to do what he doesn’t know how to. The few times he’s shown some kind of different interpretation of songs, show a very mild and not risky approach to the new melodies, such as in “나는 그대품안에/Fly Me To The Moon“. Exploring the full extent of his musical abilities could allow for a wider range of styles and interpretations of songs, only further developing himself as a musician, now that he has more than the basics of singing down and is ready to really deepen those aspects of his musical knowledge and delivery.

  1. Sandeul came back to KOMS and became Mask King for the special live! He lost the week after to Ali’s Wild Flower though :(. His defending performance was amazing though and I’m so glad his voice seems to have recovered!

    What were the notes at 3:28 and 4:20 and were they good?
    Super excited for B1A4’s comeback. Hope Sandeul can rest though 😦

    Like

    1. A4, resonant and it could’ve been less pushed but that’s not new for Sandeul. Bb4 is the 4:20 note, again it’s resonant but could be less pushed. He did great, nothing new though.

  2. Hi ahmin3, I have a question on whether or not this particular part where Sandeul was belting his high note and then immediately dropped to a slightly lower note while also sustaining it require a high level of vocal skill, and if yes, what is the right way to describe it (just trying to learn here). Is it run? control? stability? He showed it in his recent appearance in Mask Singer, at around 4:20 from the video in the previous comment by Eggnoodles. And also in the performance below between 2:42 to 2:46.

    Although some people claim that a vocalist having good technical skill does not mean being a good singer, Sandeul really showed how having great technical skill can add even more emotion to a song by using it appropriately. These two songs wouldn’t have left as much impact on me emotionally had it not sung by someone skilled enough to pull off the climax.

    These two songs are emotional and painful songs. When he was belting the high notes, he already left me in great pain. Then there he went to drop the note and SUSTAINED them. OMG please help me, my heart aches even more. Made me feel like I was watching a tragic scene in a movie.

    Ughhh, I hate Sandeul. He’s too skilled.

    Like

    1. He is just singing a vocal line, jumping from a sustained Bb4 down to G4, then in this one it was B4 down to A4, then down lower. This isn’t particularly difficult because he’s not changing the pitch drastically. He’s not singing a huge interval like an octave, but the high notes themselves are quite difficult. This isn’t a run either, it’s just well executed notes in centered pitch. People who claim that are just trying to find excuses to explain their subjective tastes and choices for liking someone more than someone else, so don’t mind them. You can be a good technical vocalist and emote as well, most good technical vocalists do so. I understand what you mean exactly, if a vocalist doesn’t have the technique to pull off big parts in songs, it leaves me with something missing.

      3. Sure I’ll copy-paste from Onew’s analysis some months ago:

        “0:14 wtf was that sound that came out? lol Actually nobody asked about this, considering it’s a completely new performance. Let me take a listen.

        I believe the range for the verse is C#3 ~ C#4, which is fairly easy for all of them. They kind of whispered the C#3’s, but they sound comfortable and supported. 1:12 F#4’s with lightness and support, Taeil is a bit nasal but overall they sound all comfortable and supported. Ken does have a bit too much compression in his vocal cords, but he also sounds supported. 1:28 throat tension on the A4 for Onew, but the G#4 and below range was fine, well placed. He could have rounder placement but the overall support was good. The A4’s were much better for Sandeul, although he could have been a bit less pushy. 2:03 tightness in his throat, but not too bad. It’s just the nasality. 2:11 a bit closed for Ken too, but when both he and Taeil were singing lighter they were using less pushing and tension which helped them in the end. 2:18 strained pushed G#4 for Ken though. 2:20 oh of course he could go for a C#5, much more tense than the G#4. 2:23 more closed in placement and throat shaping, but not too tense for Taeil. 2:39 A4 to B4 for Sandeul, very well placed and resonant but too much chestiness. 2:40 ~ 2:54 Ken’s throat is very closed throughout, the tightest of the the 4. 3:00 good transitions into his head voice, even though the vibrato was a bit wobbly and he fell flat at 3:09. Overall they all did as expected, no decline and no improvement.”

  3. Hello! A friend of mine is gathering questions for Billboard to ask B1A4 in February when they’re on their US tour. They want questions relating to their music. I was wondering if there is anything that you’d like to ask Sandeul or the other members about their technique and/or music. Thank you.

    1. Please ask Sandeul if he is aware that he is rated really highly in this blog that does vocal analysis. Also remind him that many of us became his fans because we found him through this page! 🙂 Would like to see him perform a perfect version of “Forgotten Season” too.

    2. Well this is hard really, there’s nothing really I want to know, there’s more that I want him/them to know as opposed to me wanting them to tell me anything. I suppose one thing I could ask is how often do they practice their singing and how? What kind of exercises they do, what kind of instructors they have had in the past and what kind of technique they were taught with. Like Bel Canto, SLS, etc.

    1. Actually I am not sure what octave he is singing in, it sounds belted like a B4 but the note prior did sound like it was falsetto. I’m confused cause of the quality.

  4. Hi! I have a question about B1A4’s new performance in Immortal Songs towards the end. How was Sandeul’s sustained B4 and sustained C5? I think the B4 was resonant, but I’m not sure about his C5–mainly because it sounds better than his other C5s and I don’t know what to make of it. I think it’s because he’s sustaining them on an ah vowel. It starts at around 4:20 (though he belts a separate sustained B4 at 4:12.)

    Like

    1. The B4 is pretty good, a bit shouty, a bit pushed. The C5 was well placed, the vowel was good but he moved his jaw and added extra tension to his neck and jaw, he also sang AH HHHa, so he added the H in the beginning which pushed more air into his vocal cords which is one way to cheat using the right amount of air with vocal cords, instead he just pushed air.

    I understand if you can’t but thank you nonetheless for this analysis on Sandeul ☺️

    1. I have heard that both of them have decent pitch, Jinyoung is a bit thinner in tone quality, but CNU has a chestier approach. He is very throat-based though, and sings with too much of a shouty technique. Jinyoung isn’t as shouty, but he’s thin and tight with shallow support. Both of them seem very close to the weak rating. Sorry about that.

  7. I’m not sure if it was asked before but did Sandeul support the high note that Daesung originally sang? I think it’s 3:06 (the goyAAAAAAAA part).

  8. Hi, This is my first comment on your blog. I often open your blog to see how skilled my idols is. Recently I really interested in sandeul cause he’s rated so high. so I watch several of his live videos, I think He’s really amazing as a vocalist, His voice is not so soft as many ballad singer but I like his heavy voice, as one of my favourite, Shinee’s jonghyun sings with heavy voice too, I think. but I have a trouble to identify wether the singing is resonant or strain, What do you think about this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mdq6HfkinyI ?! the G#4 at 03:14 ?! is it strain or resonant? It looks like that he is yelling, and shouting

    1. Oh he is not shouty or yelly at all in quality, but he sounds rough and tired. So he ended up a bit flat, I think it’s just fatigue.

    Like

    1. His buddies.. lol 0:24 very nasal and closed throat vowels, he is shallow throughout. 0:31 E4’s and rather closed in the throat and whiny. Don’t say anybody sucks, that’s not nice. He just has very underdeveloped technique, there’s a respectful way to put it. He is a lot airier than Jinyoung but it’s not like Jinyoung has amazing technique either. 1:14 wobbly vibrato, weak support. Gongchan is really airy. 1:34 He has better placement and a chestier approach than Jinyoung, but he is pushing from his throat so he sounds shallow, just a lot less soft or shaky. 2:04 when CNU sings he sounds like Hankyung from Super Junior, shallow but chesty..the tone of their voices is kind of similar. He sings in his throat and because it’s less nasal than Jinyoung, he sounds fuller by contrast but I don’t really hear proper support. 3:01 He has moments of his voice cutting through, but then Sandeul sings and the difference in a sound that’s not shallow, that’s well placed, cuts through easily and there’s no throat shows. I wouldn’t say Jinyoung got better, CNU is better than he might have been a debut but not better than he’s been for the past few years. 4:26 there we go resonant B4’s.

Anyway… a quick, dumb question from someone who has no idea about proper vocal techniques. People love to post “vocal rankings”, based on “evidence”. Some of them are credible while others are utterly biased. For example, in this group, how would you rank the remaining 3 (San is #1 obvs)? Most people rank Jinyoung over CNU (because he has a “clear voice with clean high notes”). Idk where they got that.

      1. Some analysis are shorter than others, especially the non-mainstream singers (so biased towards idols?). I guess there’s just not much to say about them, or you’re not really into them (which I totally understand, even if someone is really good, if you don’t “feel” them, you may not want to listen to them that much, and if you like someone, even if they’re not so good, you may listen to them more, thus, a longer analysis).

        I’m rambling lol

      2. Well sometimes there’s more to say about someone simply because they have more issues or qualities. Some other times, it’s due to the amount of material or the author’s style. I generally write a lot, it’s easier when I’ve listened to them more so I can go into more detail but I don’t think the length affects the “bias” factor, since we put in just as much effort but sometimes there’s not much to say. What do you mean non mainstream? My longest analysis is Park Hyoshins analysis which is over 3K words in length, nothing else I wrote comes even close and he’s not an idol. lol I think the author factor is the most important for sure.

  13. I consider non-Idol singers (Younha and Ann One for example) as non-mainstream. Author factor is important, but some readers just scream “BIAS!!!” if this vocalist gets a higher rating/longer analysis than their bias vocalist. An irl friend said this is biased towards SM cause they never get a “Weak” rating. I’m like “Dude, Sungmin is rated “Weak”, he’s from SM, and people consider him on the level of KRY.”
    I get that you only analyze half of the vocalists (large groups) or the best one or two, but a little suggestion?
    What about a “mini analysis”, like their voice type, vocal range, a few observations accompanied by a single video with their best performance? For all the weak vocalists who people have been requesting for ages (I hear you BTS Jimin stans). Sure it’s not as comprehensive, but with all the analysis you’ve been doing in the comments section, you can probably compile a mini vocal analysis for some highly-requested people.

    Just a suggestion and thank you for replying (keeping me awake lol)

    1. Oh Ann One there wasn’t much material for her, and I know her in person so there’s no bias against her in anyway. lol Yeah I’ve seen the SM comments and I was like “I guess Krystal, Changmin, Henry and Sungmin suddenly left SM or something.”
      I understand your suggestion and I appreciate it but..there are a few reasons I wouldn’t do that. 1. I would have to do that for a lot of people and that could take away time from writing actual analyses. 2. It takes away credibility since the analyses are less lengthy and wouldn’t have as many examples, which makes convincing fans harder. 3. I don’t like half assing something. If I’m going to do it, imma do it right. So that’s why it’s been suggested before but I can’t do it.

    I think Jinyoung regressed from debut, he sounded a lot fuller back then but now it seems he sings with a more airy and nasal voice?

    Like

    1. CNU in this video you posted he is kind of nasal, throaty, there’s too much air passing through and not enough connection happening between his vocal cords so I don’t really hear a steady stream of air nor a good enough stretch of his vocal cords. He is often flat and he isn’t able to place his voice anywhere but his throat. 1:24 He is a very shallow untrained tenor to me, the G4 kind of gives it away to me. There is no moment in which I hear support but he does have a nice voice.

      With this old clip of Jinyoung I hear nasality and airiness, as well as a lot of flat notes. 0:21 0:27 0:35 0:38 0:42 all flat. I don’t hear connection nor support when he sings in this lower range, I had once thought he could be a baritone back in the day but I think he’s just an untrained tenor. 1:23 the way he sings around Eb4 sounds more like an untrained tenor who hasn’t learned to support.
