Future Analyses (No Longer Taking Requests)

Vocalists Whom Will NOT Be Analyzed

Due to many fans not reading our rules carefully, we will provide a list of popularly requested vocalists that will not be analyzed because analyzing them would break our rules. Please read our rules before making a request.

2NE1’s CL

4Minute’s Hyuna

Big Bang’s Seungri

BtoB’s Hyunsik

BTS’ Jin & Jimin

EXO’s Chanyeol, Xiumin, Suho & Lay

f(x)’s Amber

Girl’s Generation’s Sooyoung & Yuri

Infinite’s L


Miss A’s Suzy

Secret’s Hyosung

Sera (Former Nine Muses)

SHINee’s Key

Super Junior’s Heechul, Lee Teuk, Kangin, Siwon

T-Ara’s Jiyeon



For analyses of members of idol groups, we only analyze vocalists. We do not analyze rappers, even if they may sing at times if their main instrument is rapping, we will not analyze them as it is not fair to them. If a rapper happens to have significant vocal skill then they shall be considered for an analysis.

We only analyze up to half of the vocalists in a group, and only the strongest half. If a group has 8 members but 4 are rappers, then we’ll only analyze up to half of the vocalists in that group. So in this case only up to 2/4 vocalists will be analyzed. If the vocalists in a group happen to be more vocally skilled and balanced, then more vocalists will be analyzed within a group, such as the case with SHINee, Brown Eyed Girls and Mamamoo.

We only analyze vocalists with sufficient material for an analysis. Therefore groups that debuted more recently, such as in 2016 and 2017, will not be analyzed due to the lack of material. We prioritize vocalists who have longer careers with more material for an analysis.

*******WE ARE NO LONGER TAKING REQUESTS ******* because the list of vocalist to be analyzed has reached a fairly lengthy size, we will be no longer accepting requests until the list decreases in size.

Disbanded groups or members who left their groups and are now not active anymore in the mainstream will NOT be analyzed. Even if they may be active, they’d need to be significantly vocally skilled to be considered for an analysis. If they’re active outside of Korea/K-pop, they’re not K-Contemporary artists anymore, therefore will NOT be analyzed.

With trendy TV shows like Idol School and Produce 101, we must inform you we will NOT analyze temporary groups as there will not be enough material within their one year together to write a full analysis for their main/lead vocalists. These vocalists shall be analyzed once they re-debut under a solo stage name or under another group in the future, following the guidelines provided above regarding material, positions and relevancy within their groups.

If any of you would like your idol to be analyzed, drop your request in the comment box. If you attach videos/recordings of their (preferably) latest live performances, it will be helpful. But then again, it will not guarantee that your idol will be analyzed since it will depend on our contributors. We can’t even guarantee when we will release the analysis of the above mentioned future projects. One other reason is that analyzing vocal when there isn’t enough material to judge them will be challenging and more or less inaccurate. This will explain why judging rookie idols is an issue.

  1. Does this means he has yet to project and train his vocals well for musical acting or was it his bad habits in general when he goes high in notes? Thank you for answering btw


    1. It’s both. He has yet to train to sing with a more proper approach for musicals but his general approach is also something that’s blocking his path to singing with openness, resonance and support up there.


      1. Was she supporting? Because she sounded like she did. And how about the first verse? Personally, I don’t find it too low but I’m just curious what the notes are because it feels like she dropped her support there.


      2. Chuu generally supports, that’s something I have felt a few times. 0:28 Eb3, before that G#3. She drops her support a lot in the third octave and has no developed chest voice. Her mix has some drops in support as well, flatness at 0:55 and she just isn’t lifting her soft palate enough. But she is actually connecting better in the chorus. She has support, to an extent. Thank you for being more specific by the way!


  2. Hi admin ! sorry for bothering you, but can you listen to and judge my singing here ? Do I have any support/ breath support ( I know the highest note C#4 sound kinda throaty with that vibration, but do the 2 lower note sound ok ? )


  3. I just got into IZOne,what can you say about Jo Yuri’s performance here especially these parts: 0:36-0:43 and her high note at 2:10. Also what can you say about her technique. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PrXYi_agb_8
    I’m so sorry but here’s another one. I want to make my comment just one but there’s no edit button. What can you say about her singing here at this part 0:29 and beyond. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bo81gCCBZio


    1. I haven’t been answering questions that are more or less kind of generic. Like a general opinion of a vocalist, I am going to be honest with you and tell you I have been purposely not answering those questions because they’re time consuming and I’d rather just analyze a vocalist instead. Also unfortunately even if I wanted, I can’t watch cause these videos are blocked for me. Why don’t you tell me what you think of her when you ask about her and make it a more specific question in the future?


      1. But Jo Yuri of IZOne is one of their main vocalist. I think her voice is clear and not nasal and produces vibrato. Also when she hits the high notes the veins in her neck doesn’t pop out like other vocalist. That’s I was wondering about her technique.


      2. Veins popping out aren’t the only way to tell anything about vocal strain. It’s actually very unreliable if you base it off of the way things look alone without listening to the quality of sound. But at least I see why you’d ask about her. Then please if you ask a question, show me these instances without nasality, with a vibrato, with high notes where you feel she’s not straining and where she’s singing with clarity, while also adding time stamps.


      3. So this is also about Yuri but I understand if you can’t answer.
        This is a weird ranking video but what interests me are the parts she sings between 5:22 to 6:07

        In the first clip, from 5:22-5:35 her voice sounds pretty clear to me, sounds relaxed.

        Between 5:39-5:42 she sings a higher not that I’m pretty sure is not fully supported.

        Then, @5:47-5:53 and 5:55-5:59 she does a crescendo (I think) into those high notes that I don’t think are strained but sound kinda pushed.

        Lasly, her high note @6:00-6:05


      4. 5:22 The first note is not relaxed. It’s clear, it’s got chesty placement and her soft palate is lifted. But her throat is also constricted, there’s clear pushing of air pressure and throat tension. The D5 is strained. 5:25 I’d even say the larynx is high on the C5. I think she shows a LOT of potential, she just needs to manage air pressure and throat tension because she’s really close. 5:39 It’s not “not fully supported”, it’s completely strained. High larynx, pushed, squeezed F#5 followed by Eb5. 5:47 ~ 5:53 The C5 before the F5 was better than the other one from earlier. She sort of reminds me of a more constricted Seunghee. 5:55 I think you’re confusing crescendo (increasing of volume on a softer part gradually) vs a run (a sequence of notes sung on vowels without consonants, usually one single vowel). Eb5’s and F5’s were the notes she was hitting and these are, as you know, very hard notes for a soprano to hit well. They were quite squeezed and strained. 6:00 ~ 6:05 F#5, E5 and then C#5. There was less tension on the C#5. I think I have expressed this before recently, but I’m going to say it again. I am not worried about a vocalist’s ability to sing high notes if they can’t support. I don’t want to start from hearing them singing strained high notes, I want to hear them singing a normal song and showing me control, support, a consistent stream of airflow while also connecting their vocal cords well. I could hear some of that here, but all I was exposed to was the fact that she, like many other young sopranos, can sing high with a lot of vocal strain from D5 ~ F#5 and has questionable consistency and support around Bb4 ~ C#5. She does support, that much I could hear. But I don’t want to hear her strained high notes before I establish if she can support, so please don’t just send compilations of strained high notes. Just for future reference, please. This isn’t just directed at you but everybody. I feel this way quite a lot when people always just think “high notes this and that.”


      5. Wow, thanks so much for the detailed explanations o-O

        Yes I completely misused the term crescendo, shame on me

        And yeah, gotcha. I stumbled across this video the other day and in her part where she sung those higher notes and of course I wondered if she supported up there; but yeah, I won’t send anymore high note compilations unless there’s established support since, as you said, it makes no sense, but again ty!

      6. If this video isn’t blocked, I think 1:00 onwards are good clips of her singing within a reasonable range:

        This vid could also help (orange hair + bangs, starts singing around 0:30)

  4. I wonder why Luhan won’t be considered for analysis. Wasn’t he supposed to be the Baekhyun of EXO-M? Does that mean his technique is far below that of ChenBaekSoo’s?


    1. “Disbanded groups or members who left their groups and are now not active anymore in the mainstream will NOT be analyzed. Even if they may be active, they’d need to be significantly vocally skilled to be considered for an analysis. If they’re active outside of Korea/K-pop, they’re not K-Contemporary artists anymore, therefore will NOT be analyzed.”


  5. Good day!! Just wanted to thank you guys for all the useful information! Can you do a short analysis on Stray kids’ vocal line based on this video? Thank you in advance and have a great day! Does woojin support in this video? And what are your general comments about his technique and points for improvement? Thank you so much!


    1. Hello dear. I know you’ve asked about Stray Kids before a couple of time. Last time you also posted this video, but then you did include the names of every vocalist in the video. I’m sorry, but I’m not doing video questions anymore and I haven’t been doing so for a while, which is why I have not responded to your comments. However I’d like you to know why and acknowledge you, as I feel just ignoring your comment isn’t a nice thing to do. Questions that are general asking for a whole video’s analysis are time consuming and are hard for me to really grasp in terms of what you know, what you understand and what you want to know. I don’t like general comments. I did listen and I’m going to say Jeongin did not seem to support. As for Woojin and Seungmin, my previous comments more or less stand the same. Seungmin was tight on F4’s and F#4’s, he’s got some degree of shallow support with a relaxed approach below but there, it’s just shallow tightness. Someone did ask more specific questions about them recently and so I’ll copy-paste this one comment and video link. The video you provided is not live and so it’s not the most reliable source of singing critique. It’s something to go with, but not enough to talk about improvement. Also just because a vocalist has been singing for an extended period of time does not guarantee that they’ll have any improvement in vocal technique. Time =/= quality in practice. Same habits will stay the same unless the vocalist is consciously doing something to change them. I’m sorry but general questions won’t get good answers and I’m not a general answer kind of guy. So that’s why I’d rather ignore a comment and let someone else respond than give a generic answer.

      “I really don’t like to answer questions that directly compare two vocalists because I don’t see the purpose of it. 3:33 F#4 for the green stripe, who I know is their main vocalist and I’ve heard sing with less throatiness before. He does not show support on F#4, but he is particularly throaty in this video. Generally he doesn’t support this high nonetheless, nor higher which was a good portion of the chorus of this song. He is generally shallow and his throat is tight. The guy with glasses is less tight, for sure. Less throaty. He isn’t supporting particularly well, but he has a more established sense of support from what I’m hearing in this video. 2:18 His F#4’s don’t carry too much throatiness, 2:25 but he’s still tight with a high larynx on G#4. Neither of them show particularly fantastic support nor development of their voices, but in this specific video glasses is less throaty and tight than green stripe. Okay glasses is Changbin, a rapper, and Woojin is the main vocalist.”


    1. I’m so sorry but I can’t say I hear a change. I don’t hear really any form of proper support. Not only has his posture remained the same, with him hunching back and pushing his neck forward, but his sound is also the same shallow, tight throat quality as before. Support isn’t something I’d say I can hear with any degree or sense of it, in this. Unfortunately. In order for Jin to improve he would have to be consciously trying to sing in a way that’s different than he’s accustomed to, and I’m not sure he is trying to sing differently.


      1. Thank you for the reply!
        Looking back on my comment last night i can see i picked a pretty rough example among many of what i thought was some improvement in his voice. Do you think this is any better in terms of technique? https://youtu.be/8RfMYBfosDQ (singing parts at 0:30, 1:30 and 2:55). I can tell he still strains at some points but he seems fairly relaxed and isn’t hunching himself over compared to the other one. I know he hasn’t made any drastic change but at the least i thought there was some minimal improvement given his clearer tone quality and posture, but maybe i was mistaking ease/lack of physical tenseness in some registers for support.


      2. I’m sorry but I still hear similar issues. You could be confusing the lack of physical tension with ease or support. I wouldn’t say he strains at some points, there’s an underlying tightness throughout. When Jin sings there’s a lack of openness, where he is unable to relax his throat and keep the sound free. It’s always somewhat closed, with varying degrees that get tighter and tighter, the higher he goes. From 1:30 to 1:43, when he was singing notes around E3 ~ G#3, he was more relaxed. Still shallow, but as soon as he sings a note in the fourth octave, his throat closes. 1:44 was C4, and he already is closed there. He, a tenor, is closing his throat as early as C4. Anything above that is tighter and more strained. Jin may have shown more relaxed singing in slightly softer lower parts, but Jin has always shown tension in the fourth octave and even Bb3/B3.


  6. Hello Ahimin, it’s been a long time aince I have asked your thought about NCT’s vocals. This is a video of NCT Taeil covering a song of Avery Wilson, I think at 0:13 up to 0:18 he hit some B4s (am I right or not? hehe) does he improve? compared to her past B4s? Does he support that note? and is his vibrato seems natural? or forced? Have a nice day Ahmin 😂 or any Admins that could answer my question 😂


    1. I do think they’re B4’s. To say they’re improved or not I’d have to have kept a tab on Taeil in order to know. I haven’t analyzed him, I’m not sure if he’s been showing improvement. There’s strain, they’re tight in the beginning but they get better when he sings “we’re like a” although the strain isn’t gone. The vibrato isn’t forced, but it’s not relaxed enough. I think he does seem to be doing better than way back when they first debuted but as of this year, I’m not sure.


      1. Thank you for the answer Ahmin, I was about to ask his note on Simon Says but I think its really strained and doesn’t need a consulatation, but I just want to clarify if it is D5’s-E5’s slide at 3:04-3:09, and is that mixed? From what I can hear it’s really throaty, tensed and closed. This is the studio version since they don’t have a live performance with them not dancing, I hope you considerate (the first one s htesmut studio version and the second one is their live performance with dancing ofc 2:58-3:02) https://youtu.be/arjy2v7zEI0 https://youtu.be/BH1OJr9PCLc


      2. The second video is blocked for me so I can’t watch. But the first one is not and it’s a mixed voice slide indeed.


  7. Hey Ahmin and other admins :))
    I’m here just wanna provide some materials for Jihyo’s analysis. Hope they”d help^^


    2:24 to 2:43

    1:17 – 2:29 – 3:21 (I think she got a resonance here, maybe)

    Their new song, she’ve done many E5 (or Eb5 im not sure) recently, lived and they sounded better than her Cheer up’s ones, to me at least 🙂 1:00, 2:14

    and some other live performances:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-SfPjv6dh5o (2:37)
    I can feel her improvement but too sad that she’s like not presented in most of kpop vocal videos on youtube… so cant wait till her analysis come out 🙂

  8. Can you do a vocal analysis of Twice’s Nayeon and Jeongyeon (main vocalists)
    I know they’re already listed (in ‘indefinite’) but I’m curious and hoping that you guys will eventually and definitely get to them at some point in the future (where there will be more material)

    A vocal analysis of Akmu’s Chanhyuk would be nice too, though there isn’t much materail. I guess we just have to wait for him to get discharged from the military and wait some more to get more material.

    I’m also excited for an analysis of Pentagon’s Hui! He’s a great singer! Despite Pentagon being quite new, he has a lot of videos of him singing.

    Hope you watch the whole video.

    Thanks for reading this. 🙂


    1. Well hello. Uhm, as you see, they’re already on the list. Indefinite does not mean that we are not sure they’ll be analyzed, it just means we don’t know when exactly. Also if you read the rules, it should explain why we have absolutely no intentions of analyzing Chanhyuk at any point in time.


  9. This is Park Woodam who was on the guys produce 101 and will be debuting with the HNB
    He sounds relaxed in the verses (like 0:17-0:23). Is he supporting?
    0:51-0:56 is a bit too high for him
    In the beginning it kind of alternates between notes that are more comfortable vs ones that are high. How do you practice so that is could be a smoother transitions?


    1. Hello. You mean when he was transitioning from mixed voice to falsetto? It’s hard to explain but it’s just a matter of connecting the bridges of the voice, so that one is able to keep a close placement with closed vocal cords even when changing from one register to the other. Without letting air come through the vocal cords and allowing no restriction to happen while keeping the stretch smooth and the notes right on pitch, they just have to keep practicing transitions and exercises that close the gap between registers. He does support, yes. You’re right, those notes are too high for him to sing without tension at this point.
