Best Korean Solo Singers (according to me)

Since I have been in K-wave mode for a while, I decided to make this article! I observe that some groups and soloist are amazing at their own way. There are some great dancers like Shinee or Exo, as well as many groups who excel in their vocals. But today I will share my favorites solo singer based on their voice. Let’s see!

  1. Ailee

Ailee has a super cool voice and range of songs of different genre. I first discover her through the song Heaven. The song itself really shows her voice quality. I love how she can hit the high notes so smoothly and seems to have a really bright personality. And one more : She’s so pretty!

  1. Amber

This boyish singer right here is part of f(x) group, but she decided to make her own album as well. I really like her duet song with eric nam, I just wanna, and her solo : Shake that brass (which sounds like breast when she sing it, but okay forget my randomness). She also has a lovely personality. I think she’s so sociable and can blend in really well with other K-celebs and singers.

  1. Lee Hi

I found her first time, through her song Rose. And I LOVE it. I played over and over again when I first heard it. It’s just so catchy and nice. Even though I don’t really understand the meaning, it leaves a deep impression on me.

  1. Jun K

I admit his voice is just so classic and deep. He’s also in 2PM boyband in charge of vocal, so no wonder his voice is so good. I love his single No Love. In one song, he sang ballad as well as rap which is so cool. Saranghaeyo Jun K!

  1. Jung Yong Hwa

Jung Yong Hwa is the vocalist of CN Blue band. But he also release his solo album. I love his smooth voice and his personality too. Admit it, he likes to smile and when he smiles It’s like (I’m melting). Although I’m not really a fan of pop songs. But his voice is just so pleasant to hear.

  1. Jung Joon Young

Jung Joon Young is a perfect combination of my love of rock song and his deep, crispy voice! I love his all of his songs. And my favorite is currently Teenager.

  1. Ok Taecyeon

Okay. This is probably because I’m biased by Oppa Taecyeon looks and personality. Seems so manly and beast-y. He’s also a part of 2PM like Jun K, but he handles the rap part. He is also an entrepreneur and a great actor. When he sing, I just like his voice. Okay maybe I’m too biased for this one. But anyway he’s great at rapping!

  1. Eric Nam

And finally Eric Nam! This guy is kind of like Jung Yong Hwa but in a different way. His voice is smooth and even better when he sings English songs! Well because I can understand more about the song than when it is in Korean haha.  He’s also so talented in being a host of music broadcast, like ASC (After School Club).

Happy Sunday

I have a very blessed sunday today. I thought life in Jakarta would be hard, but turns out that it’s quite boring #eh? I haven’t start any classes of university and my 2nd orientation will be starting next week. My first orientation ended like 2 weeks ago. And there’s this 2 weeks holiday. It’s quite amusing how life goes this fast. Yesterday I feel like I’m still in Surabaya with my family and friends, chilling and relaxing. Sometimes I feel like where did my summer holidays go? Did it go without any meaning, without anything important that I do..? Well, I don’t know. But then, yeah I realize that sometimes we just have to enjoy the art of doing nothing. Haha.. An excuse of mine here(?)

I have a lot of worries actually towards this university life.., like can I make friends? Can I achieve good grades? Can I adapt to the environment of my university? Since I’m this girl that really need to be taught how to appreciate the things in life. Not to worry about why I don’t make any conversation or if my question is bad. Sometimes it’s tiring and sorrowful to just keep what we have in mind just inside ourselves. I want to be open and let my thoughts be heard, I want to have the courage and be the new me, that people never thought I can be. Just let me grow in Your Love God.

Actually, few days ago, I just came back from a retreat. I met many new people in my university that is in one way, I mean having the same faith, same religion. I thank God because I believe that God makes me to choose the right thing and thus have the joy of being with the others praising his name. I had a great time there. Even though I think I’m still not as open, I mean talk a lot, as I want to. But then, I realised I met many people of different character and it’s fun to watch them and observe them. Anyway in the retreat, we have session with some speakers from church talking about the relation of God to human as well human to human.

One of the speakers said that he said he feels the love from God so much, because even when he has a weird sickness that makes him in high school have to be hospitalised for one month and the next month he’s in school again. He said it’s like a cycle to be in hospital and attend school. And he also tell the miracles from God on a girl that during the crisis in 1998 is raped by some ill-mannered people. And it results to her reproductive organ to not function well. Shortly spoken, she can’t bear a child. It’s like a nightmare for her. But then God always with her. Short story, she met the son of a pastor. He’s in love with her and one day he propose to marry her. Even though he knows that she can’t bear a child. Another love from God comes. After they are married, she feels pain in her stomach and the next thing she knows that she is pregnant.
Well, that’s the story, actually it can be more detail, but then I forgot the details. My bad.

Then there’s another speaker and he talks about marriage(?) What a random topic. He said that’s what his mom ask him that time when he’s only in junior high school so still about 14 yrs old. Do you want to get married? If yes then what do you need to prepare. 1st thing is the bride. Well of course. and the next thing is a good house in the skirt(not in the center) of Jakarta probably around 1billion rupiahs as well as a car about 200mil, then the marriage fee itself about 300 mil. So to get married it’s like you have to have 1.5 billion divided by about 10 years. The time between his age that time and the age he wants to get married. So from that time in junior high he has to have 150 million per year. Back then, we have a huge dream, but then as soon as we grows up usually the dreams decrease. And if like me now the time that is 10 years has decreased to 7 years and for these 4 years in uni, I might not work yet. so deduct by 4 becomes 3 years. And during these 3 years I have to make it to 1.5 billion. Ha. But of course God will help. It can be through my parents and the groom-to-be, we can collaborate to pay together. Anyway, he also told us to have a plan. At least know what will we do tomorrow. So before sleep, we have to know what will we do tomorrow and then make the day meaningful.

Okay I will stop now. It’s up to the readers to read or not. But if you go this far to the bottom. Thank God. I hope it helps, but if it confuses you, feel free to ask 😀
