Netizens mock Sehun’s MR removed performance

@ 0:34

A post is trending on Korean community site Pann showing Sehun’s performance on Yoo Hee Yeol’s Sketchbook along with EXO.

However, the post is not trending for good reasons, as netizens are sharing an “MR” version of the song, which shows Sehun’s singing without the music.

The post goes into saying how they believe Sehun was invited to SM Entertainment simply based on his looks and not talents.

[Check out the fully translated post below]
“ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ EXO fans kept praising EXO for their performance on “Yoo Hee Yeol’s Sketchbook” so I assumed they improved and was listening. Everyone is so good including Chanyeol but Oh Sehun ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ what is this really. I guess he went into SM with just his looks. I thought he was a hard worker because he said he couldn’t dance in the beginning. I guess looking good is a skill too ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ but the thing is he doesn’t make me angry but it’s funny ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ what is this it’s not Korean or English it almost sounds Chinese ㅋㅋㅋㅋ if you want to laugh, listen to his MR removed. Listen from 35 seconds ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ. If you’re a fan please send him some harsh words so he practices and not be a burden on his team…sigh.“

Netizens left comments sharing their disapproval for his vocal talents, berating the artist saying:

1. [+257, -57] If he was a female idol, he'd never hear the end of it about how untalented he is ㅋㅋ He needs to be grateful that he was born a man

2. [+216, -50] I couldn't stand listening to it all, had to turn it off

3. [+211, -67] He's honestly so shameless. If I were him, I'd be so ashamed of myself that I'd quit singing.

4. [+107, -6] I'm an EXO fan myself and even I can't bear to listen to Sehun's parts and pull out my earphones. Fans need to admit what's wrong so that they learn and improve themselves. He really needs more practice... Sure he's getting more parts but the truth is the truth ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Blindly shielding him won't help him at all. It's better that fans point it out in a respectful way so that he improves his skills rather than antis hating on him for being untalented....

5. [+78, -8] I see YouTube comments defending him saying there's a mic issue ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ wake up from your delusions..

6. [+72, -3] I was so shocked to randomly hear a grandpa with something caught in his throat; had to repeat it because it was so hilarious ㅋㅋ

7. [+71, -10] He's honestly so bad, can't even shield this

8. [+68, -7] People always bring up hard dance moves but what are the rest of the members doing then? Just standing there while Sehun dances everything on his own? No wonder they're better singers than him then~ I see~

9. [+57, -2] Burst out laughing in real life because I randomly hear this grandpa noise out of no where;;;;

10. [+55, -8] I think Kai's the true hidden gem. He has great vocal color in 'Lucky' and 'Don't Go' and now he's able to pull off lives. If Kai practices like 10 hours a day, he could end up like Taemin. I always thought Taemin was a great singer off the bat but apparently he practiced his way to that point... Sehun-ah, what're you doing?

One Way's Peter has been updating fans with hints, saying that the special summer album will be coming out soon and that Donghae had a hand in making the title track. It's also rumoured that this is just a special summer album, and that 8jib will be released later this year. It seems that SM was not keen on releasing this album and that it was something SJ wanted to do for fans. Scheduling conflicts with SNSD?

We'll have to see!

Netizen's Discover Original English/Demo Versions of K-Pop Songs

English pop songs that originally didn’t get a lot of exposure. As well as f(x) songs, there are many other Korean songs that were created as remakes of English songs.

Buying of songs is a common among record labels that believe that they can turn that track into a hit. In these cases, many K-Pop songs were bought or sold in order to create the tracks today. How do some of there English version compare to the Korean versions?

The Return of Superman Ep.82

KBS World TV

shikyung was a nice visitor, i wouldn't mind him visiting jion again. jion's love for animals made me miss haru. mingukkie was so good on his scooter, i was impressed. ilgook is amazing for even attemtping to do a triathalon with his children essentially strapped to his back. i squee everytime seoeon and seojun chatter to each other and play well. my only child feels always flare whenever sarang has to say goodbye to her cousins.

Kim Boa's unmasking

from her prerecorded elimination interview (translation courtesy of @Spica_Tweets):

"It's been more than three years since I debuted. I've been singing guides and chorus vocals since I was 21, starting from Lee Hyori's Toc Toc Toc, and then T-ARA, KARA, 4minute, SNSD, Insooni... To be honest, I felt tired because my voice could only appear in other singers' albums. What is my dream? I just hope that people will like the singing from a person named Kim Boa. I'll sing till the day I die. As long as I have strength left in me, I want to keep on singing. Singing is the only thing I know. I hope I can be the singer Kim Boa who will not be forgotten."

ahh I'm so proud of all three of her performances!! 'Spica' and 'Kim Boa' have been trending in Korea this evening... this would be a great time to release Boa's long-overdue solo @B2M!!!!!!
