Kim Bumsoo of “I am a Singer” was also someone who could not get the beat right
The hottest topic of conversation in the music industry is singing ability. As singing ability becomes anew a topic of conversation through audition or survival programs, it makes one even wonder when there was a time in which the word “artist” lost its true meaning of “a person who sings” due to the idol wave. Even singers who command fame sing with shaking hands in front of an audience evaluation panel on a survival television program, and a congressman has even made a motion to introduce a bill that bans lip synching in order to block artists who can only dance and not sing.
Typically singing ability is thought to be inborn. Park Sunjoo, who is well-known as the teacher of singers and a singer/songwriter, says that such is not so. From ten years ago when the term “vocal trainer” was unheard of, she raised famous artists such as TVXQ, SG Wannabe, Yoon Mirae, Kim Bumsoo, and Ref. (…) There are countless singers and actors who have passed through her hands. There are therefore that much memories and bonds. “I met JYJ’s Xiah Junsu when he was in his second year of middle school. Because his voice was breaking/maturing at that time, we focused on getting the vocalization down. I’ve never seen a person who has more sensibility in the voice itself than Junsu.”
