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 (Average to Above Average vocalist or higher) 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. (Average to Above Average at least.)

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. Hi admins! First, I enjoy singing and relatively new to kpop, so coming across this website has been really great. Your analyses are really indepth and helpful to learn more about technique and such so I really appreciate the hard work!!! If you don’t mind, I have a few questions:
    1. Where does chest voice for sopranos usually end?
    2. I’m having trouble mixing and I noticed that I really start to tense up/go flat at A4 and I crack around the B flat/c4 area unless i switch to head voice/falsetto. How do I prevent this?
    3. How do I know when I’m mixing or using chest voice because I don’t know how to differentiate.
    4. I know you don’t release rankings before releasing the full analyses, but between Yuju of Gfriend and Seungkwan of Seventeen (and Wendy from red velvet), who would you say has better technique?
    5. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M78pE9haHoI

    i’m sorry if its too general, but can you do an analysis of these performances from seungkwan?
    I know that he was sick during these performances, and he started crying a bit in the at the end of the second, did that affect his performance in any way?

    Again, thank you very much for all the effort, and sorry for all the questions!!!


    1. He didn’t sound sick at all actually those 2 solo rounds are one of his best, he sounded at the top of his health i say that cause i heard him being tired


      1. during the episode he mentioned that he had to go to the doctor a few days before because he had a cold, i think


    2. Hi there! Well I’m glad we are here in the beginning of your journey as opposed to later on when people’s ideals have already been established. lol
      1. Usually F4/F#4, for most. That’s when the mixed voice starts usually.
      2. Well I’d have to hear exactly why you’re cracking, there could be many reasons. Have you seen any of our vocal tips for K-pop fans series?
      3. That’s something that’s easier shown than said, so like I said vocal tips for K-pop fans, some of them address things like these.

      4. I’m afraid you’re going to have to wait until their analyses are but comparing a soprano and a tenor is already odd enough. At this point I’m actually not even sure.
      5. This is all I’m gonna say about these performances because I’d rather you wait for his analysis.

      3:36 G4 3:42 G#4 and 3:44 G4 4:13 F4 4:37 C5 head voice. They were all resonant belts and the head voice was supported, helped by the ooh vowel though. Not sure if he’d consistently be able to support it on different vowels.

      “He sounds fuller not in a mature way but in a way that his upper belts sound much better than I’d expect in that range. This will be interesting when I analyze him.”


  2. Hello! I have a question regarding NCT’s Taeil, Doyoung, and Jaehyun. Would it be safe to say that these three are the strongest vocalists in NCT so far? I’ve seen a lot of people online say so, and they seem to rank them as so: Taeil > Doyoung > Jaehyun. I know it’s a little hard to give a response on that, because there’s not that much material, but do you agree?

    Also, do you believe that they have potential to grow? They debuted 1-2 years ago, so I know they’re quite young and have room for improvement. It’s just with them being from SM, the standards are quite high and many have claimed them to be untalented due to the fact that they seemingly have “the worst vocal line out of all SM artists”. I just would like to know your opinion on them, if that’s alright!


    1. I’d rather not rank groups or vocalists like that. But I do agree that they’re the strongest I’ve heard from NCT thus far yes. They’re not untalented by any means but they’re slightly underwhelming by contrast. I think they have lots of potential for sure!


      1. Thank you so much for the quick reply! I’m glad to hear your response, and I truly hope they have a bright future!

        Also, I had another question regarding Rose of Blackpink. I was wondering what about her vocal technique makes her more qualified to be analyzed than Jennie? Jennie is pretty stable on stage and I think might be better at pitch. Also, is nasality a bad thing? I’ve noticed Rose has a lot of it. I don’t really know much about music, pretty much only the basics, so I would appreciate your enlightenment on this matter!


      2. What does stable mean to you? Because it’s used vaguely amongst fans. Nasality is limiting but not unhealthy nor damaging.


  3. I can’t seem to be able to reply to your comment but anyways, I think that while performing on stage, Jennie’s voice seems to be less shaky than Rose’s voice? Although I believe you’ve stated that stability doesn’t really have much to do with vocal technique?


    1. Well shakiness isn’t truly an indication of good technique, especially if we are talking about vocalists singing and dancing at the same time, yknow,


  4. Hay Ahmin
    I have a question!
    From “without you” to “timeless” do you think Taeil has improved his techniques? I know it is just one year and half.. But i’m just curious ..

    Another question is that High note Xiumin made in weekly idol .. I dunno much about notes, so can you tell me which note is this? and did he really use a head voice for it?

    Thanks in advance


    1. I can’t answer because I haven’t been keeping up with how he’s been using his voice that closely, so sorry. You mean his head voice C#6.


    1. You’re the sixth person to post this! Haha
      Someone posted this before. The comments about him changing the melody can be disregarded cause I found out he was copying what bruno does in some of his live performances.
      “0:08 he lacks in openness a lot in this beginning, he sounds pretty tight and he is trying too hard to project and push his voice out when he could relax and open up the back of his throat a lot more. He is kind of emulating Bruno Mars a bit, which is not a very good idea. 0:15 the D4’s are better, the E4’s and F4’s afterwards on the next line are a bit too pushed. I’ve heard him be more opened. 0:35 too much air and slight tongue tension. 0:42 F4’s, again too much tightness. 0:46 A4 high larynx. 0:53 pushing way too much. 1:00 tightness and a high larynx. Also the English is causing him to use his tongue more than he needs to, which might be what’s causing him to sound tighter than he usually on a range below G4. 1:32 ~ 1:35 way too tight. 1:36 ~ 1:46 nice changes in the melody, really nice actually. 2:00 nice here too, this is less common with non-American born K-pop idols. 2:23 way too much pushing and a high larynx throughout. He has a very pretty voice. He has the Yoo Youngjin thing going on for him. 3:07 throatiness throughout, but nice melodic changes. 3:15 he even mixed E5.”
