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

Luhan

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

Rappers

Rules

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. Sorry to learn that Sohyang’s analysis has been taken down, but I’m awaiting eagerly nonetheless for the updated and improved analysis that does justice to her vocals:))

    Just curious to know your thoughts about Sohyang’s latest performance in IS2 (You Raise Me Up): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r_kaWAaW8u8
    1) How were her low notes at the start of performance? Some have pointed out they sounded kind of breathy but my guess it’s more of a stylistic choice.
    2) Were her G5s at 5.50-5.55 fully resonated, or was there a tinge of strain or tension?
    3) What are your general thoughts about the arrangement?

    I understand you guys are very busy right now so please take your time to respond. Cheers and keep up with you good work!

  3. hello. who do you guys think are NCT’s stronger vocalist? I have the impression that it’s Taeil, Doyoung,Haechan, or possibly jaehyun and renjun, too. But im curious what u guys think.

    Like

    1. Definetly Taeil,Doyoung and Jaehyun as far as I read the comments form Ahmin and Pandayeu. I also read that Haechan has no real support but he´s still young and his voice is still getting more mature so that could chance. I think somewhere I read that Jungwoo supports but since he didn´t sing that much in BOSS it´s hard to say. Don´t know about Renjun tho..

      Like

      1. Taeil definitely seems the strongest right. He’s the most relaxed and most consistent out of all their vocalists. From what I’ve heard Doyoung’s not bad either but he’s quite nasal and raises his larynx above F4. I even think Jaehyun is a little bit stronger as of the moment.

        Like

      2. No doyoung is not far from taeil , he supports up G4/G#4 live and studio . phrased supported G#4 in timeless live , G#4 in lay me down cover and another one in Boss , he also got connected head voice so he doesn’t raise his larynx above F4 and he’s above JaeHyun who got C#3 – C#4 not sure how consistent he’s above

      3. Yeah I didn´t know how good Doyoung was because I read somewhere that he supported quite a few G4´s or atleast they didn´t sound bad. Thanks for your clarification on that point ^^ but as far as I read Jaehyun also has D4 down or am I wrong? I know that his lower range is quite underwhelming but i think his mix isnt bad

    Like

    1. not Ahmin, but ppl have asked him about that before! From what I remember, Sungjin and Jae have ok support and Jae has some good F4’s, whereas there’s only shallow support from Young K (Ahmin has once suspected he is a baritone bc he can keep tone on C3’s easily, dunno abt his opinion now) and from Wonpil I personally don’t hear much? Might be because he sounds so nasal and whiny, but… well. I’m pretty sure notes above F4/F#4 are not a good place for them.

      2. If there was a machine it’d be great. People think that ghosts aren’t real because you can’t prove to them what material they’re made of or that time travel isn’t possible. Years ago I think the idea of a plane flying would’ve been considered, so just because we don’t currently have the technology to do something does not make it impossible. It just means we don’t know how to do it, yet.

  11. Please analyze this guy. He is part of a group called Dar Dal. In the song cover of Jason Mraz, he’s the one on the left. Then he has a solo song. This guy is the main vocal of the group, I believe, which fits in with the blog’s requirements. He is also the visual of the group, and you hardly ever get a visual/main vocal combo. He is definitely skilled, resonance on F4s. Please, I know you’re not taking requests, but I beg you to make an exception for this guy. Please analyze him. This blog has a baritone shortage. He can fill your quota. PLEASE!!!! I hope I don’t sound too pushy. I’m just a fan.

  12. Hi Ahmin 🙂 I was wondering if I could ask some questions regarding this video about Woojin. He sings at 0:55, 1:51, and 2:24.

    Firstly, I was wondering how his intonation was? Was he open on the high notes? How were his adlibs? I’ve also noticed his singing was a lot louder and more “stable” than the other members, and this is generally the case when listening to skz lives…. is this due to his breath support?

    I really like his voice, and I really hope he does not fall to the JYP method of half air – he was originally trained in SM. Do you think he can overcome whatever issues he may have in the future? He has improved a lot since the show, and he practices frequently.

    Thank you for answering this if you do! I really like your blog, it’s pretty informative :))

  13. Hi! This is my first time commenting so sorry if I do anything weird or mess up because I’m really awkward, but I was wondering how Taeha did here? I’m still learning about technique and my pitch is still really bad (but it’s ever so slowly improving) so I wanted to ask the professional. Does she support at all?

    0:46 1:01 2:28 2:46

    I’m not sure if this is actually live since it does sound like it was prerecorded, so I’m sorry if that makes a difference. Taeha is Momoland’s main vocalist, and I noticed you hadn’t really said much about Momoland in general (except for a comment on Ahin, I think) so I was curious as to how Taeha’s singing is. Thank you! 🙂

    Like

    1. Generally for vocalists who have yet to show support throughout their mid registers, it’s more important and I’d rather hear them singing with support in a mid range instead of high notes. That’s a G4 and I’m afraid it’s not supported.

      Like

      1. No not quite. Instead of lower registers, it’s the middle register. Most things in life start from 1 onward, from the bottom to the top but 1 in singing is the middle. From the middle you expand both upward and downward to your highest and lowest notes to develop the voice but support in the middle is the first step, along with control, pitch, breath management and dynamics. All of which we look at before we think of high notes.

        Like

      2. i think she was asking at what note does the middle register switch into the upper register, which occurs around E4/F4 for a baritone right?

    1. Well as you know, or perhaps not, range doesn’t mean much when it comes to vocal ability, only potential. Also D3? For a male? That’s very high for a lowest note, especially considering I’ve heard him sing A2 at least and I’ve never heard him sing anywhere near the 6th octave.

    Hi Ahmin or Pandayeu. Have you listened to Iz*one? If so, could you tell me what do you think of them?

    Yuri is main vocal, does she support here?

    And does Kwon Eunbi support?

    What I think is that Yuri’s throat is somehow closed/tight, and that she has a similar tone and technique as Ladies’ Code Sojung, and sings with a high larynx as she goes higher.

    Eunbi’s voice lacks openness and her support is shallow? (Her high note at 2:46 doesn’t sound strained, but I guess is not properly supported either?)

  30. A commenter said that the singer in the middle (gray shirt, glasses) shows more control and support in this video than the one on the left (green stripe). Is this true or are they tripping? I’m asking this question to anyone who happens to see this who knows at least some about singing, since I don’t know anything much.

    Like

    1. 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. I can’t say anything conclusive and I didn’t see the comment saying Changbin’s support and control are better than Woojin’s. Would you mind showing me?

    1. I haven’t really been answering generic video questions or any video questions in a while as I feel it trapped me a lot with spending my time too much answering these and not getting much else done. So understand that I won’t go into too much detail. The ratings are gone so I won’t use those terms. Her support is dodgy, she lets it drop and she has underlying breathiness without connecting fully. A couple of pitchy moments from not supporting with consistent airflow and an expanded diaphragm in First Snow. Moments of support are there, but she tends to only want to support for high mixed belts but she just pushes on them. She’s not got clean enough support from what I’m seeing.

      Like

  34. hi, i know you rarely answer video related questions but if you probably have extra time can i know if the notes jinho belting during 3:23 onward are supported and in control? and how does a musical type vocal and range actually differ from the usual singing range?

    Like

    1. Towards the end he went into the fifth octave and like many tenors, closed his throat a lot. The particular note you pointed out is a G4. Sustained, very very pushed from his throat. He pushed, he didn’t support the note and project it with the support behind it. He just used his throat to push the note and shout it out. Musical singing is to a degree pop singing, it’s much more similar to it than it is to classical singing. But like classical singing, it’s more standardized. Pop singing can range from indie, where airy soft singing is normal, to very powerful rock belting that goes into the heights of one’s range. Musical sounding songs generally are belty, with more of a chest quality, they tend to enunciate more clearly, they need to be able to project well on stage so they can’t just whisper notes. But musicals can be rock influenced, can be R&B influenced, can be jazz influenced, so it’s not TOO far from pop music in general. They tend to just need to project better and have more precise vowel shapes. Most musical actors are trained to do so, so trying to emulate that without knowing how to do it can be quite dangerous. What Jinho did, considering that he has his own issues supporting G4’s, was just pulling his chest voice up to try to sound louder, thicker and more powerful like a musical singer, but he didn’t use support to do it. He used chestiness and air pressure without opening his throat enough nor using his vocal cords enough, which caused him to strain.
