BTS’ Vocal Analysis: Jungkook

Vocal Range

G2 ~ Bb5 (3 Octaves, 1 note and 1 semitone)

Supported Range

Eb3/E3 ~ Eb4/E4

Voice Type



  • Second strongest vocalist in BTS
  • The most relaxed singing technique out of all tenors in BTS
  • Pitch is relatively good when not doing vocal runs
  • Tends to favor falsetto over mixed voice, minimizing vocal strain
  • Shallow support is present to an extent in his singing
  • His lower range maintains sufficient connection down to Eb3
  • His middle voice maintains a relaxed approach up to Eb4/E4
  • Falsetto can be relaxed at times
  • Transitions into falsetto are relatively well done

Points for Improvement

  • Tends to favor style over technique, completely limiting the development of his voice
  • Tends to sing with a lot of breathiness in tone, not allowing his vocal cords to be connected completely
  • Lower range is often very soft and whispered, lacking developing
  • Mixed voice is very underdeveloped, often has to falsetto when unable to mix properly
  • His larynx raises early on after his first passaggio, around F4
  • Tends to place his voice in his nose and sound very whiny
  • Unable to support with consistency, breathing is almost completely neglected
  • Falsetto can sometimes be flat due to too much airiness
  • Vocal runs are often messy and pitchy
  • Unable to use a head voice with support


  • Lower register: Most of his lower range is underdeveloped as he doesn’t generally tend to sing too low or too high. His chest voice maintains projection below Eb3, but support is only present down to Eb3. Below that, his voice lacks clarity in tone and becomes quieter.
  • Mixed register: His mixed voice is mostly on the head-dominant side, as he sings with a soft approach most of the time. Very early on in range he starts to sing with a tight throat and a high larynx, even as low as F4.
  • Upper register: In a way, his most developed register. His falsetto is where he seems most comfortable, as he tends to switch to falsetto very early on in his range. Nonetheless, this register still lacks proper support and development overall.


Jungkook shows that most of his influences come from singing R&B music and that’s where he seems to be most comfortable in terms of genre. As such, he takes a liking to adding his own musical ideas to songs and they’re usually in the form of vocal runs. He has the tendency to add them in many occasions, as he seems to have confidence in this area of his voice. However, due to his young age and to an extent lack of patience, there is a lack of clarity and development of his agility. When it comes to the flexibility of his voice, Jungkook actually possesses the correct muscle memory and rhythmic bounce to clearly sing through different notes in simple trills, as long as they’re short and simple, as heard in “I Need a Girl.” Unfortunately, he tends to add overly complicated runs to many of his vocal performances, which lack precision and accuracy overall. His vocal runs often sound rushed, as he’s unable to sing the notes as quickly as he needs to. Thus instead of taking the time to practice vocal runs slowly first and then speeding them up to the correct speed, his runs often sound like they’re mostly improvised and thus not carefully thought-through. The result is usually sloppy runs that lack a clear idea of key center, as he adds too many notes that don’t necessarily fit in terms of pitch. This can be heard in many occasions, such as in “Sofa“, “Paper Hearts“, “뻔한 멜로디“, “Boyfriend“, “눈, 코, 입“, “Love is not Over“, “You’re My“, “Miss Right” and “If You.”

Overall analysis

Jungkook debuted in 2013 as the main vocalist of Bangtan Boys, more commonly known by international fans as BTS. He is one of the four members of the main vocal line, three tenors and one baritone. The group debuted as mostly a hip-hop based group where most of the focus of their music is on rapping as opposed to singing. As such, a lot of their songs are mostly rapped verses with hook choruses sung by the four members of the vocal line. Jungkook’s voice stands out with a very smooth and mellow timbre. His voice is light and bright, as well as very soft in quality which is often enhanced by many of his stylistic choices. Although not often singing very high, his voice lies in a generally higher range and he would most likely be classified as a light lyric tenor.

The lower part of his chest voice is often neglected and not truly showcased through BTS’ music. As their songs are focused mostly on hooks for the vocalists, the range they’re written in is usually narrow in order to keep the listener hooked in. Thus Jungkook is unable to explore a wide part of his range when singing BTS’ music. Most of the time he stays within a relatively comfortable range and doesn’t sing below D3. This has caused him to often lose projection of his voice when he does need to sing anywhere below an Eb3. As low as E3 and Eb3, he often sounds comfortable as his vocal cords are able to come together and his voice projects without much trouble, as heard in “Sofa“, “Love is not Over” and “샤방샤방.” However, as soon as he sings below Eb3, his vocal cords lack the strength to remain together and his chest voice starts to become breathier and quieter. This can be heard with the B2’s in “Paper Hearts“, “Fools” and G2’s in “나그대에게 모두 드리리.”

Due to his stylistic choices, Jungkook often employs a very unique approach to his singing. He never tries to paint himself as a powerhouse vocalist and uses the natural smoothness of his voice to his advantage. Instead of mixing and belting high, he often sings softly and with a lot of breathiness in tone throughout most of his range. Not only that, but in order to maintain the smoothness and softness in his singing style, he often chooses to sing with his falsetto as opposed to mixing and thus has yet to create the correct muscle memory and development of his mixed voice. For the most part, his mixed voice is quite light in tone and lacks power. His mixing technique relies on a more head-dominant approach and a lot less on his chest voice, which helps him maintain a smooth soft tone overall. Stylistically, it fits exactly the way he intends it to.

However due to him being unable to develop his mixed voice properly and by using too much breathiness in his singing, his larynx tends to be raised much earlier than a more developed tenor would. He actually often mixes quite low and is not known for being a very high belter. Most of the time his mix only goes up to F#4 in their repertoire, only occasionally singing up G4 and G#4. When he sings up to Eb4 and E4, he sounds mostly relaxed and is able to maintain some support, even if it may be shallow and lack depth. However anywhere above E4, his larynx raises and his throat starts to become tight, which results in a mostly whiny tone production. His voice is unable to escape the tension, causing him to sound thin and closed above E4. This can be heard when contrasting the C#4’s in “양화대교“, D4’s in “모릎“, “Fools“, Eb4’s in “See Through“, “뻔한 멜로디” and E4’s in “心中的日月“, with the F4’s in “Coffee“, “Butterfly“, “Miss Right“, F#4’s in “샤방샤방“, “Let Me Know“, “Love is Not Over” “Tomorrow“, “Lost Stars“, G4’s in “See You Again“, “눈, 코, 입“, G#4’s in “I Need U“, “잡아줘” and Bb4’s in “Bang Bang Bang“, “If You” and “Perfect Man.”

His falsetto register is, relatively speaking, his most developed register. He seems to be the most comfortable in this register and is able to transition into it much earlier in range than most tenors would. While many tenors would rather mix up to A4 at least while singing, Jungkook will opt to use falsetto even as low as F#4 while phrasing songs, as heard in “Too Much“, “모릎.” Most of the time, Jungkook choses to use a falsetto over his head voice, by maintaining his vocal cords somewhat separated and allowing air to come through, creating a breathy sound that mostly works stylistically. He is able to use a head voice as well and has done so a handful of times. However due to his inability to grasp breath support properly, even when singing in his head voice, he is unable to maintain a neutral larynx and properly supported tone production. The lack of support in his upper register usually causes him to lose control of his voice and make him sound somewhat pitchy and/or flat. His head voice is thus quite pushed and loud, lacking in control of volume, as heard with the F5’s in “Dope“, the G#5 in “Oh Happy Day!“, as well as in “See You Again” and “Lost Stars.” The highest he’s ever pushed his falsetto was the Bb5 in the high note battle amongst the BTS members.

Many of Jungkook’s issues lie solely with his lack of understanding of proper breath support and many of his stylistic choices. As addressed by Dr. Iris Stevenson, Jungkook tends to use his throat muscles a lot more than necessary and doesn’t truly allow his diaphragm to expand enough to help him support his singing. If he’d take the time to properly breathe and be more conscious of his diaphragm, he’d be able to maintain a lot more support throughout his voice and thus allowing him more freedom when singing higher. His stylistic choices often have him choose airiness, nasality and softness over powerful singing. This may work for him for the time being, but it also limits him to being able to sing in one specific genre only. Breathiness in singing is perfectly fine if it can be turned on and off at will, however for him it’s become such a habit that he has yet to develop many areas of his voice. His mixed voice, head voice and chest voice all lack proper development and often sound as though they can only be sung in one specific volume output. He tends to sing quietly and smoothly only, which works stylistically but not in every genre. Although Dr. Stevenson addressed his breathing issues, one session alone won’t fix a bad habit he’s created for years.

Although it may be true that Jungkook’s overall voice is not fully developed in terms of technique, this does not take away from the natural qualities he possesses as a vocalist. With BTS’ music, the focus is not on powerful belting and extremely well developed vocalists. Instead their focus is a lot more on smooth and soft singing within a relatively narrow range, which Jungkook delivers very effectively. He may not be the most technical vocalist out there, but the way he sings works perfectly for the type of music he currently sings. When comparing him to the other two tenors of BTS, Jin and Jimin, Jungkook is the most relaxed out of the three. Jimin’s singing tends to be very tight due to issues similar to Jungkook’s, but also a lot of tongue tension. On the other hand, Jin sings with a lot of throat tension even with a relatively low range for a tenor.

Thus it is actually quite clear why Jungkook would be their main vocalist. He is the tenor with the most control of his voice and who’s most relaxed when singing and even though V may be able to grasp breath support slightly better than Jungkook, BTS’ music is not written for a baritone voice. Their music generally stays within the F3 ~ G4 range, which is a relatively comfortable range for a tenor but actually quite challenging for a baritone to constantly be singing in. Thus it makes sense that Jungkook is their main vocalist, as he’s the one who’s most comfortable within the range their music is written in. For the future of his career as a vocalist, Jungkook would need to undergo training for basic singing technique in order to improve his singing. However that would be necessary if he were to take a different road musically and change his singing genre and style drastically. As it is right now, his singing style may be limited but it is sufficient for his chosen repertoire as he stays generally within a comfortable range and doesn’t often abuse his voice by singing outside of his supported range.


Jungkook’s main idea of musicianship usually derives from his idea of the R&B genre, where he tries to add his own musical ideas to songs in the form of vocal runs. As previously addressed, his vocal cords lack the full muscle memory and control to execute his musical ideas as accurately as he intends them to, which usually results in a sloppy pitchy delivery overall, such as the runs in “If You.” However when it comes to other aspects of his style, he has a good sense of knowing when to soften his voice and when to blend his voice with others. Since he usually sings with a softer and mellower tone, he allows his voice to blend more easily with others in harmonies, as heard in “Some” as well as in “You’re My.”

  1. I dont want to be heated 🙂 lol umm i drink average 2 litres water a day so that may not be problem or is it? Also i try to keep my stomach area expanded to control my breath but my voice sounds very breathy.Btw thanks for your quick reply


  2. Hi , how can i train my music ears better , sometime my ears are naughty because they won’t listen correctly the pitch that i heard :((


  3. Hi! I have several questions regarding Jungkook.

    1) I have a friend who claims that Jungkook haven’t improved at all when it comes to vocal recently, and that he is even getting worse. Is that true? She says that it’s because he has no will to get better while on the contrary Jimin and Jin are doing way better because “they actually want to get better” (yeah she doesn’t like JK too much I think that’s why I prefer asking)

    2) Is the margin between Taehyung and Jungkook really that important? Should Taehyung have been main vocal? Or is it just because TH is a baritone that he couldn’t?

    3) How come Jungkook sounds really good live ? Is it unrelated to technique?


    1. Oh and I know that you’ve said that taehyung couldnt be main vocal because of the type of song they go with, but if they had to go for another kind of sound? Should taehyung take the chorus?


    2. 1. I can’t deny nor confirm wether he’s improving. I personally haven’t heard a change in his technique, but I haven’t heard it from any of them actually. But to say any of them are regressing is definitely pushing it.

      2. It’s not a big enough difference for it to matter to me personally.

      3. Sounding really good is a very vague thing to say. Some people may claim that Suzy, Britney Spears, Madonna, etc sound good live. What sounds good or appealing to you may not be technically skilled singing and that’s fine. Taste is different from skill.

      4. If a song is sung in a key written for a baritone voice, so that’d work for him.

      1. Wow thanks for the quick reply! Oh and by “good live” I rather meant really stable? I don’t get how he can move around so much but still sound like that. Except for Jin who doesn’t dance as intensely when singing, I don’t think the other members can quite do the same. Fans jokingly says that he has more than two lungs, but I wanted to know if there was a reason?


      2. Again .. I have a whole video about this vague usage of the word stable, which is in no way meant to demean you but hopefully it can help clarify things for you.


  4. Hi Ahmin! i don’t know if anybody’s been told you this but since it still don’t work i guess i’m just gonna tell you anyway. In the analysis, you put link to Dr. Iris Stevenson’s evaluation to Jungkook, however the video is no longer available due to copyright issue. But i found similar video so you may want to replace the link. I think that video is important since many people (or tbh, army) tend to say:
    1. Jungkook sings flawlessly despite the fact that an expert like her said he used his throat muscles too much that his diaphragm didn’t show proper support;
    2. Jungkook’s technique is more developed than Tae.
    I myself is an army and that’s why i want them to be better for their own sake, so seeing people behave like this really sadden me.
    Thank you so much.

  5. Hello! Thank you for all the great analyses you’ve worked on, I feel like I’ve gotten to learn a little more about singing and have developed my understanding of music a little through these analyses.
    I was wondering what thoughts you had about Jungkook’s most recent cover, specifically around 2:30, 2:45-3:00, and 3:22-3:32:
    Seems like slightly less breathiness in some of those notes?

    Also would love to hear your thoughts on Euphoria –
    Seems like something is a bit different from before, maybe a bit of maturation with how he approaches notes? Not sure, but thought I’d ask!


    1. It’s quite nice, it’s connected and unlike his usual breathier and shallower approach. Now, it’s not something that he’s never shown before, this range is fairly comfortable for him, except for the peaked G4’s after 3:22. It’s a bit better placed.


  6. I’m kinda sorry for using this link of Burn The Stage since alot of people pay for the content but I happened to be curious about a certain thing. In episode-4 from about 05:06 we see Jimin practicing and Jungkook giving a bit of advice to him. It goes on roughly till 06:04 so it’d be great if you could check it out. Is Jungkook giving proper advice there? And if he is do you think he would be quick to grasp a better technique since he seems to have a bit of an understanding? I’m sorry if this sounds random 😂.
    Here’s the link btw:×4/

  7. Hi! Can you tell me about Seokjin a little more? He’s so underrated and most fans don’t do him justice. I would love an analysis of him, but if you can’t do that, please tell me about it here.

    I noticed he has improved, since he was someone who clearly wasn’t looking forward to sing as he wanted to be an actor. His performances in Awake and his high notes in Crystal Snow…

    Please, make a video about Seokjin “lack of good singing” on debunking myth, if possible, at least! Or tell me here!


  8. Hey Ahmin! Hope you’ve been well 🙂

    I found this guy named Chris Hart who makes Japanese music, I was wondering if you could give a listen to this song…

    One of the things I hear is lots of nasality. Aside from that, is there any support? His Bb4s sound tight, but what about the other notes in the chorus?


    1. Not to be that person, but I think this video should be on a different page. And I know the admins have a policy on non-kpop vocalists, in the faqs page. And not to be nagging, but time stamps would be very helpful. The admins are busy and not making them have to go through the song at random for Bb4s and below would be ideal. So keep this in mind for next time.

      By no means an admin or an expert, just using my prior experience from listening to other vocalists on the blog and comparing them to him. I hear tightness from G#4 and up. The A4s and Bb4 had high larynxes to me. He also pushes a bit, which distorts his sound a bit. I have no clue how intentional or unintentional it is. It happened on almost all his G4s and one or two F4s. His G4s still sound supported, but pushed. His G#4s are sketchy because they all happen on really tight vowels, the e and aye vowel shapes. Sometimes he pushed them out on the aye vowels, and at other times they felt like high larynxes. He’s also not creating enough space in the back of the throat to let the sound flow out, and he doesn’t drop his jaw low enough to resonate. In summary, pushes a bit overall, good up to G4, sketchy G#4s, probably strained or pushed, and high larynx afterwards. Again, I am not an expert.

  9. Hello, thank you for your great analysis! You work hard.

    I was wondering what you think of Jungkook and Jin’s vocals in the very beginning of the video? Have they shown improvement or stayed the same?

    Thank you!!!


  10. Thank you for this. I’m quite satisfied with your review and actually quite agree with you. Even in his lastest song Euphoria he tends to lack control at some places. In the lastet Japanese album Face Yourself , in Don’t leave me song, I can actually hear his breathiness so much at one point and it actually messes up with the beat. Same in Euphoria, it overlaps the sound of actual beats and hence the song lacks overall clarity.
    As for other members, could you please do a review on Jimin’s serendipity? I really think he has improved and would like to read your take on his voice over the years.

  11. Ahmin, you there? You haven’t been answering much these days but anyways I’ll leave a question here.
    In Love Maze, is that a vocal run by Jungkook from 0:30 to 0:34?
    Here’s the link:
    It’s a short one so the timestamp may not be accurate. If it is a vocal run is it executed properly since you’ve mentioned that Jungkook’s runs are often sloppy? I think it’s something related to vocal agility but I’m not sure if it a vocal run 👀.
    Also, I found this on Twitter. Is this even possible?


    1. I can answer cause it’s brief. To me it’s sloppy but the notes are right, he’s hitting them that quickly but not at the center of pitch and so he’s sliding and it’s a bit messy.


  12. Hey, after reading your analysis of Jungkook and V, I want to know your opinions on these four videos down below! I love your thoughtful observations and explanations, so I’m really curious on your reactions. I’ve speculated the reasons but I want some confirmations from you. Some of the comments down below are borderline rude and I don’t agree with them, but I still understood the videos’ points. I still want a professional view on it. Please reply soon!



    1. So these are comparison videos? Hi there! Thank you for reading and all! Unfortunately since your question is rather vague, I’m not sure exactly how to answer or what answer you’re looking for. What I can say is that some of these, like the high notes in Stigma and the oh happy day performance have been addressed in the comment sections and even in the actual analysis. The thing is none of them can support a note in head voice consistently, so to expect them to support anything in the fifth octave properly isn’t realistic. Now V’s head voice notes in Stigma are higher in his voice than in Jungkook’s voice, it’s like comparing a guy to a girl, a violin to a cello, the instrument is different so even if they can hit the same note, they feel different in their voices. But Jungkook’s examples were executed better than V’s, but neither are necessarily relaxed, supported nor healthy ways of vocalizing. You can hear both singing Ha which means they’re pushing air through the H consonant before connecting the vocal cords, which means they’re overly relying on air pressure before singing with proper support. It’s all strain, different qualities and degrees of it.


      1. Omg, thank you so much for this thoughtful comment! I wasn’t sure you were going to answer because you seemed like a busy man.

        I don’t know why the videos are messed up(I think it’s because the link I used was in a playlist). I’m sorry you have to re-answer questions, I know that must be very tiring.

        To be more specific, I was wondering about your thoughts on Jungkook teaching Taehyung how to improve his high note technique. Do you think Jungkook was giving him proper advice? Or do you think it would do more harm than good? (The first video)

        Also, I was wondering if Jungkook’s stamia(since he is an athlete) was the reason why he is so “stable” live. Like in the second video below(this song was performed near the end of the concert and after many songs), Jungkook seemed to be the only one singing clearly compared to rest of the members without sounding out of breath.

        I hope this is much clearer than my previous comment and that the videos work this time. Thank you for all the hard work and contributions you do to this website!


  13. Hello, I don’t really have a lot of hope tbh, but since this is their latest vocal-heavy performance I thought I would ask if there is any improvement for any of them.


  14. Hi , i notice jungkook aways sing quitel low volume but high note and soft . What should i do to able to sing that style


  15. I wanted to ask you, do you know what the highest note that Jungkook has used his mixed voice for was? And can Jimin and Jin mix higher than Kook, since he switches to falsetto early in his range? I’ve noticed that a few recent songs by BTS Jin and Jimin have done all the highest mixed voice parts (Fake Love, and Don’t Leave Me for example. I mean they don’t sound very good to me but it’s not head voice I think).


  16. he mean the vocal types this guy use, he explained those are not vocal classifications it just what vocalists do at their bridge/Pasaagio area . Jungkook is basically a mix of high layrnx and flip/falsetto


  17. Thoughts on this? I’ve seen a lot of “trained vocalists” on twitter defending them, but I don’t know what to make of them. Are those “grittier techniques” (if they mean what I think they mean) even good for their throats?


    1. I think they…I don’t know, a lot of people have some degree of knowledge of basic things, but I am one of those people who hates this thing people do online. I don’t argue with people saying “Oh hey, you’re wrong. They’re great and amazing, I am a trained vocalist.” Like, you don’t need to say that you’re a trained vocalist, no need for a disclaimer. Instead just use facts, analytic details and be straight to the point. It’s like when people attack others personally in arguments. If your argument is strong, you don’t need to reaffirm yourself nor put down others in a discussion, just have a strong argument. That’s how I see it. There’s nothing I can say that they said is wrong besides saying they’re amazing in every genre they do but then again, what are their standards for amazing? In what way? They didn’t really say anything that has to do with music, which is what most people do online. So I can’t say they’re wrong or right because they don’t really say anything.


  18. I really think you need to reanalyze Jungkook because I truly feel like he has an inaccurate vocal grade/analysis. Even recently Tae himself said he believes jk is the best vocalist in kpop, which maybe a stretch, but jk has shown to be the most consistent with his pitch, control, and agility within bangtan. Their live performances shows he has the most stable breath support and the most accurate pitch within bangtan, which is a show of his vocal technique. He goes out of tune very rarely in comparison to the other vocalists in bangtan, and all of that requires vocal technique. Just because he’s not a powerhouse vocalist and his voice sounds more commercial does not make him a lesser vocalist. I’ve taken lessons from classical vocal teachers and modern vocal teachers for over 5 years now, so I know all about technique, and the consistency in jk’s vocals shows he has more technique than this analysis gives him credit for. Tae may have a less commercial voice than JK and at his peaks can do amazing things with his voice, but he isn’t as consistent like jk is. I really think you should watch many recent live performances of bangtan and consider a re-analysis for Jungkook.


    1. This analysis removed it’s “grading” system which seems to be what you’re most worried about here. So if you could kindly explain what part of the content of the analysis seems to be inaccurate in anyway considering the explanations and video examples, that would better show the need for Jungkook to be reanalyzed. A commercial vocalist isn’t a lesser vocalist, it’s exactly what you said. It’s not a powerhouse vocalist, therefore he wouldn’t get the belter label for example. You said he barely goes out of tune and as far as I recall the analysis hardly focused on his pitch? It focused a whole lot more on many other aspects of his vocal technique which you did not mention so again, if you could address parts of the analysis instead of being kind of general that would be better for me to see your points. You say that you know vocal technique, then there’s no need to mention what V said or didn’t say, as that’s irrelevant to your argument since you’re talking about what you know of vocal technique. I keep up with vocalists I analyze and I’m afraid to say I haven’t heard a change in how he sings at all, his vocal habits have remained fairly consistently the same. One thing I don’t like and I don’t mean this as an attack, is when people bring up what other people said or their years of vocal lessons. I don’t ever go into an argument like “hey I’m a vocal instructor with 10 years of learning music experience, you should listen to me.” because honestly that just kinda makes me look a bit douchey? Not saying you are, but I feel like I would come off that way if I said that. Why is it necessary for me to say that? It’s not at all. All I need is to have strong points to back up my argument, that’s what’s truly important. If you come claiming stuff but your points are vague and general, it feels more like an argument of he said she said then actual vocal analyzing. You know what I mean? A lot of this comment is “Jungkook has better aspects while singing and dancing at the same compared to the other BTS members” but this analysis isn’t “is Jungkook better than the rest of BTS” but instead it’s a breakdown of how he uses his voice which you did not address at all. You’re asking for an analysis to be redone without addressing the actual analysis in question or the points it raises.

  19. Jungkook’s been doing this one thing (around 0:13 & 0:35 i believe) at their concerts recently which i feel sounds different from the way he used to sing this certain part before.

    The above link is from their more recent concert while the link below is from their concert at LA which was a while back. A similar part comes at 1:16 but here he’s hitting that note differently.

    It’s pretty clear that he’s trying something different but is he approaching the note in a better way or was it good back then? I don’t know if it’s executed properly (esp. the 2nd one) but i’m wondering if he’s trying something good or bad for his vocals. Jungkook happened to get injured recently so he hasn’t been dancing and has been focusing more on his singing these days. In a recent live he talked about how he felt he was lacking since he didn’t get as many vocal lessons and mentioned about wanting to improve and about experimenting with different techniques. It’s kinda cool how he talked about his habit mentioned here and how one session wouldn’t be able to change that. Makes me wonder if he read this analysis ^^. Hopefully my question will be answered.


    1. So here I am, I remembered to leave this comment so that I could respond to it later! I’m going to first listen to the older one before I listen to the newer one. Since September to October isn’t a huge gap in time, I’m not sure we’re going to find much of a difference but let me first take a listen! I’m glad he is talking about improving himself and I surely hope he does. I don’t believe anybody should ever put themselves down and feel they’re not enough, but instead they should feel as though they could always get even better.

      I listened to the studio version, then the other two. The September one and the studio are fairly similar, he’s using a light falsetto register, placed more towards the head. The way he’s approaching the note in October isn’t mixed either. It’s still in his upper register, but I’d call it more of a nasal head voice. It’s not a huge difference, it’s less airy, it’s projecting a bit more and it carries more brightness. To say it’s better or not is a bit hard, because it lacks support either way. He is pushing slightly more, he’s pressing his vocal cords slightly too much with the head voice whereas the falsetto one is a bit more relaxed. It’s not a big enough difference to say much, to say it’s an improvement or if it’s good or not. I’d call it a stylistic preference and I’d only hope for him to just keep his vocal cords connected with less force.


  20. Hopefully my comment gets posted this time 😥.

    The above link is from their more recent concert while the link below is from their concert at LA which was a while back. A similar part comes at 1:16 but here he’s hitting that note differently.

    It’s pretty clear that he’s trying something different but is he approaching the note in a better way or was it good back then? I don’t know if it’s executed properly (esp. the 2nd one) but i’m wondering if he’s trying something good or bad for his vocals. Jungkook happened to get injured recently so he hasn’t been dancing and has been focusing more on his singing these days. In a recent live he talked about how he felt he was lacking since he didn’t get as many vocal lessons and mentioned about wanting to improve and about experimenting with different techniques. It’s kinda cool how he talked about his habit mentioned here and how it would take time to change that. Makes me wonder if he read this analysis (less likely since it’s in English but fun to think about) ^^.
    Here’s a video of their performance at Berlin for more reference:
    Any noticeable change to you?


    1. Your comment was already posted actually I just haven’t had time to listen. Honestly I wasn’t going to respond because I haven’t been responding to video questions for a while now but this is something I wanted to know too.


    1. I’m sorry but I haven’t really been answering video questions lately, and the few I have are specific with time stamps. So sorry.
