Korean netizens highly appreciate Twice’s singing skills during their latest comeback with ‘Alcohol-Free’.
Every time Twice makes a comeback, the topic related to the group’s live singing skills always receives the attention of internet users. During the promotion of Alcohol-Free, the JYP group surprised the audience by singing live at the first comeback stage at Music Bank on June 11. Twice’s subsequent promotional stages at Music Core, Inkigayo also made fans admire because of the members’ clear and stable voices.
On the latest stage on Genius channel’s Open Mic on June 15, Twice also received thousands of compliments for their “unbelievably good” live performance. After only a few hours of posting, this video reached 1 million views and more than 162,000 likes.
Netizens think that Twice’s singing skills have improved a lot compared to the More and More, I Can’t Stop Me eras. Previously, because of MR removed videos, Twice was often criticized for their bad live performances. However, on the Alcohol-Free stages, Twice showed perfect vocal ability, smooth vocals even on high notes. Except for Na Yeon, Ji Hyo, Jeong Yeon who have the best vocals in the group, the rest of the members also did better than expected.
Netizens think that Twice has worked harder and tried harder and so they have received positive feedback. However, many netizens think that JYP’s selection of a song that matches the group’s vocal range has helped them sing better. Previously, many of Twice’s songs had very high tones, making it difficult for the group to hit high notes. Also, Alcohol-Free’s choreography is easier. Therefore, the girls do not spend so much energy that it affects the quality of their voices. In general, Twice is still a group with average Kpop vocals, not as excellent as fans praise.
Some comments from netizens:
“The girls are more confident, more comfortable in showing off their voices”;
“Na Yeon and Ji Hyo usually sing the chorus, but the chorus should be shared with other good vocalists like Sana Tzuyu”; “Na Yeon and Ji Hyo literally swallow CDs”;
“The company made them sing songs with excessively high tones, made them dance hard, and then they were cursed badly. I’m glad Twice has finally improved their skills”;
“They’ve always done well. It’s sad that the group was criticized before for small mistakes”;
“Tzuyu’s pronunciation in this song is very good”;
“Sana’s voice is very attractive”;…
