Prepare to be disturbed xD. These guys are back again, only this time round, they’re dancing to Big Bang’s ‘Lies’ and Wonder Girls’ ‘Tell Me’ (remix). Actually, they’re quite good at it. I guess if this keeps them from fighting each other and occupied, then it’s quite a good idea. But next time…try SuJu’s ‘Sorry Sorry’? XD

There are so many things I disagree with in this article -___-. I mean, I know they’re providing ‘critisms’, but to say Ryeowook “only sings the high parts within Super Junior” is going a bit too far. Yes, he does mostly sing high parts, but they obviously don’t follow SuJu closely, since I’ve heard him sing pretty low parts too. I’ve bolded the parts which I think the judges should reconsider i.e. eat their words and choke.

The April issue of men’s fashion magazine “Arena” judged the talents of the main vocals of idol groups. Group DongBangShinGi’s Xiah JunSu received the highest praise, SoNyuhShiDae’s TaeYeon and Wonder Girls’ SunYe were given similar marks. SS501’s Huh YoungSeng and Big Bang’s DaeSung, Super Junior’s RyeoWook received the lowest marks.

The judging was done by singer Kim YunWoo, pop music critic Cha WooJin, and M.Net’s Park ChanWook PD. The three said of Xiah JunSu’s voice, “The reason why his vocal does not exceptionally stand out is because of DongBangShinGi’s songs,” and “He is a commendable vocalist who we feel sorry to label as an idol singer.” Kim YunWoo said, “He gives a nice feel of having talent as well as having received much training.”

Although not as skilled in comparison with Xiah JunSu, Shinee’s JongHyun received positive feedback. They stated, “He is a singer whose next step we are anticipating more than his current stand,” and “JongHyun’s vocal is one of the reasons why Shinee succeeded.”

With all the hype of MR videos right now, I decided to go and listen to a few myself. I was pleasantly surprised by a few of the performances too. It’s not that I expected horrible singing or anything, since well…these people kind of make a living out of singing, but with some people critisising and saying how certain idol groups have pretty shaky vocals, I have to say that I didn’t hear any of that. Maybe it’s just that the live performances I listened to weren’t as bad. I guess we also have to keep in mind that not all live performances are smooth sailing for the singers. With that said, here’s a few performances I watched.

Super Junior:

Marry U – This is one of my favourite songs by them :D. There were a few shaky moments, but overall, I think the boys did relatively well. To  me, Yesung’s voice really stood out; maybe it’s because he sounds exactly the same when singing live and when recorded. Ahh, if only the screaming was cut out or had its volume lowered =/.

I wonder if the draw was on purpose.

To be honest, I didn’t like Seungri’s dance. Maybe I just don’t like the fact that he’s dancing with a girl. And this is all coming from a very unbiased perspective since I’m not a big fan of Big Bang. Not that I hate the group, their music style just doesn’t appeal to me as much. I don’t like how he incorporated sex appeal into the dance through the use of a female dancer. Although I have to admit, it wasn’t a bad dance. It’s just not my cup of tea.

I much more prefer Taeyang’s dance, although it wasn’t like a ‘Woah I like this dance’ type reaction. And once again, YoonA’s reaction to the little stripping involved was caught. It’s like the cameraman knows when to film her to capture her emotions. I like how the dancing suddenly became much more energetic and faster; contrasting well with the beginning of the dance.

Gosh, I sound like I don’t really like Big Bang in this post, but I actually don’t mind them. I’m just not that big of a fan of theirs, that’s all.

I think this has been out for awhile, but I it wasn’t subbed in English until recently. I’m not a big fan of Big Bang, but I do enjoy some of their songs. And gosh, this parody makes me cringe and laugh and die of embarassment over and over again.
