      1. Hi you’re smart. I just wondered if you could tell me who the best vocalist is in blackpink. Arguments have urrupted about jisoo being the best vocalist but I don’t think she is technically. The vocalists in blackpink are Chaeyoung(Rosè), Jisoo and Jennie , Lisa is a rapper

      2. If you check the future analyses list, the vocalist with the best technique is the one who will be analyzed from each group.

  1. I saw your tweet, and I wanted to leave a comment of support. I understand 100% why the rankings and stuff might change. I said it before, I read in between the lines, and I cannot agree with you more. I want your career to fly more.

    There is one thing I want to share with you. The names of the rankings, at least for me, were always an excellent frame of reference for the skills of vocalists. A tenor or baritone supporting x note was this type of vocalist. It helped me compare them to myself as well. Thanks to that, it motivated me to improve quickly on whatever I was lacking. I would ask myself “What category am I? Who is in my category? Who is my competition?”. Even as of now, Kyu is mine. I’m taking him so then I can challenge Dongha, and then Naul. More than anything, I think it validated me as a vocalist knowing with whom I was sharing the categories.

    Also, you personally, by ranking people in the in-between categories, helped me recognize the vocalist’s different skills and how that can compensate and push them into higher categories. I will forever be grateful for the AA2P (particularly) and the G2G categories. It really helped me to contextualize how impressive certain skills were in their respective cases. Just think about all the times any of us asked “What’s holding Baekhyun from being Proficient?”

    Honestly, as I wrote this, I realized I rambled. The blog’s longtime fans will know the old names of the rankings, and, as long as we still have the criteria, I, and, the other followers who are quite detail oriented, will be able to place the vocalists even if the names change. Plus, guessing the rankings will be super fun. So please change anything as you see fit. I can’t wait to see you where you deserve to be, a truly skilled and high-profile instructor, who will be looking after the vocalists of the present and future.

    1. Thank you so much. You’re always amazing to us, and to me especially. You pay attention to what I say, you post positive messages and I absolutely am always motivated because of people like you, especially you! The new system will be in place soon actually and you’ll see that it’s still technical enough where we won’t lose our essence, but there won’t be any issues with comparisons between people, nothing that would hurt people’s feelings anymore. You’ll find that these new labels will be just as useful to your vocal improvement! Thank you so much again for everything, you’re one of the reasons I never stop. Truthfully.

  2. Oi! Tem algum grupo/artista de Kpop que você acompanha/curte atualmente ou você parou de acompanhar/curtir os grupos dessa nova geração? Eu queria muito que você fizesse mais vídeos de você cantando! Entendo que você está numa situação complicada, afinal, você é um ser humano cheio de responsabilidades como qualquer outro, mas você também pretende parar com os vídeos explicativos? Eu também gostaria muito de ouvir você falando em outros idiomas, seria muito legal!

  3. Hi, Minnie. Wuv you!!!!

    I’m late to the party. I won’t bring anything up (although lowkey I somewhat am), but just wanted to say we love you and support you. Also, to give you peace of mind, I am one of those 24 follower requests you got recently because I forgot my password and had to make two accounts. So two of the accounts following you as of now are me, but of the recent 24, 1 is me. Usually I lurk on your twitter to read vocal comments, see funny pictures, and look for things I can tease you with. Speaking of the latter, I see a love for a certain golden maknae has been brewing in the works, just putting that out there.

    I gather tons of info to tease you with. You know why? One of these days I’m going to meet you in real life by accident. I am going say hi to you, present myself as a fan of the blog, probably buy you ice cream, and then tease you in a way that would reveal my secret identity. Then you will know my face. We’ll hug, and promise to talk next time. I know that this post was supposed to be about you, but I got carried away with my Master Plan.

    P.S. I’ll sing for you too if you want, just be mindful of my extremely broken Korean. I only get the first word and the last word of every line. Everything in between is just a loop of other words in korean or complete gibberish.

    P.S.S. We’ll talk about Vocal Technique, Digimon, and all of our fanboy crushes as well, too. Geez, I know you’re curious, but let me handle the small details.

    1. Awwww honey! I’m glad to know one is you! Actually I didn’t accept some privates cause I wanted to be safe. lol I’ll just let this die down and accept requests later and then unprivate later. I just will let people get bored because I’ll be too busy living my life you know? lol Is that golden maknae Jungkook? Because contrary to common belief, I quite like Jungkook and find him quite attractive. I honestly would LOVE to meet you and to know who you are. You could look like an ogre, green and tall and I’d find you the kindest looking ogre there is out there, because your words will reflect what’s inside your heart and that’s what I’ll see no matter who you are. I honestly would be very happy if that did happen. I’ll wait for that.

  4. This might be a bit random but I asked whether this guy agrees with your analysis on exo and bts vocalists. He said no. What do you think about his opinion? [link removed]

    Like

    1. Please and I ask this respectfully, don’t ask us about him. He is not respectful, and I’d rather not have anything to do with him. I don’t care whether or not he agrees with us. I have expressed that he can think differently, to just ignore each other and move on, and I have asked him not to make videos about us, but he’s unable to do any of that. So we’re going to do that. We’re going to not talk about him, so don’t ask about him please. Because I don’t even know how to respond to your question. What I think about his opinion? The whole blog, the analyses, that’s what I think about his opinion.

      1. I am sorry. I didn’t know that you even had some kind of an encounter with him before. I was just genuinely curious why your opinions were so different.

      2. It’s alright! You didn’t know. Our opinions are different because if I say it respectfully, he has a different singing background and so his ideas are different, although he’s trying to pass them off as if they’re the only way. If I say it less respectfully, I think he has a lot of issues with misunderstandings with concepts and doesn’t quite understand that. For example, his understanding of tenors and baritones is quite misinformed.

      3. Is P** S**** the channel you’re talking about? Because I’ve just watched a new video from that channel attacking directly at this blog.

  5. Hey Ahmin, I’ve been a supporter of you since last year and I really appreciate your dedication to educating the general public about vocal techniques 😀 keep up the good work!!

    I don’t know whether it is appropriate to ask you a few personal questions but I’ll just ask anyways (I apologise in advance) cause I’m interested in the side of you veiling behind the mask of professionalism:
    -What draws you to kpop and what makes it so different?
    -Which part of your vocals are you most confident at/consider as your strengths and which part are you not so confident at/consider as your weaknesses? (e.g. low/mixed/upper register, agility)
    -Do you still feel nervous when performing in front of a crowd when singing?
    -Which kind of voices do you find the most appealing personally?
    -What makes your biases your biases? (I know there may be a lot of reasons, just name a few and I’ll satisfy)

    Anyway I know it must be quite intrusive for a stranger to ask you such personal questions, so please don’t reply me if you feel annoyed thank youu

  6. Hi!! You guys have analyzed [and educated us hehe] a lot of kpop singers already, but do you have a consensus on who is/are the most versatile kpop singer/s are? 🙂

  7. Hey Ahmin,
    It says that you have began your singing thing since you were 15. what was your Range and support range back then? (or a bit later after you knew how to do things well).

    As a young baritone I feel like my range is way too limited… Just wanted to know like how many semitones can I go lower with age? and how high can I support my mix?

    Thanks buddy for everything 🙂

    1. I actually couldn’t even mix above D4 properly and so if that’s my range without counting support, you can guess the rest wasn’t good. Lol

  8. Hi, what can you say about Haechan’s NCT 127 and NCT Dream vocal? Upon hearing his You’ll be in my heart cover around 2015, I noticed that his voice got some unique colors and texture he somehow remind me of Phil Collins or maybe it’s just me. His voice is very unique and to think that he’ll be just turning 18. I also saw a fancam where he hit a G#5 note for his EXO Playboy cover. Then he hit some G5 notes on his Trigger the Fever NCT Dream song.
    I’m not sure why NCT 127 rarely use his voice for backing and layering or even used it for hitting some high notes. But the song where he would do some backing, his voice added some color and uniqueness to it.
    I saw someone said Haechan lack some techniques in vocal because he’s still young, that Im not sure cause Im not an expert in vocal analysis.
    However, he’s notes in NCT Dream Go sounds pretty stable for me.
