    Ever since Ailee's episode I kept wanting to see Apink's EunJi and IU... I totally forgot about KJK... It'll be crazy to see Jaesuk, Haha and Gary apply for the duet partner...

    I don't think this will happen, is it by vote?

    I think so... during Ailee's auditions the bank girl was no. 1 on voting... but the choice in the end lies on the actual artist... Ailee's was the best so far... I think...

    What? He's crazy famous as a singer. Turbo was ridiculously successful at their time and then his solo career took off like mad. And like the other user said, he won all 3 awards from KBS, SBS, and MBC for his song Lovable. He has a ton of hits and is also very famous for One Man (Han Namja). To say he's not really known for being a singer means you just don't really know a lot about Korean music, to be honest.

    That doesn't make any sense. Idols generally don't sing ballad songs.

    I'm sorry, but what? You need to be skilled to get anywhere as a ballad singer in Korea. Notable Korean ballad singers are Baek Ji Young, Kim Jong Kook, K. Will, IU, Wheesung, SG Wannabe, 2AM, all of whom are very skilled vocalists. KJKs vocal range is limited, I'll grant you that, but he register is high to begin with and his voice is unique. There are only a few successful artists in Korea that have a similar style to him.

    You guys are equating famous to being a great singer. Two totally different things. KJK's famous, but he's not a great singer by any stretch.

    You said he's not known for being a great singer. He's well known for being a great singer, which is why he did so well. I can understand not personally being a fan but he brought home results, being the second singer ever to sweep all the daesangs. I don't know where you get this idea that people don't think he's a good singer from. People like K. Will have even said it's difficult to sing like KJK does.

    Your logic is flawed. Justin Beiber has been nominated and has won all sorts of awards around the world. You think he's a great singer too??

    How is it flawed? Justin Bieber actually is fairly good. His fanbase is just god awful. You realize he was originally youtube as a child star that people had high hopes for, right? Also, I do agree that results like that are not the end-all-be-all but what other valuable metrics that we can use? Literally the only thing you've offered as counter is that he's just not good.

    That's exactly my point, he's not that good! But I guess if you think Justin Beiber is a good singer I really can't help you homie lol. To me a good singer is someone like a Kim Bum Soo, and a great singer would be someone like Luther Vandross. Both of which are miles beyond KJK and Justin Beiber.

    You are free to dislike his songs but to say he is just an idol and has no musical talent is plainly stupid. He got popular only thanks to his voice. You have opinion but just know it is very unpopular and many people will disagree with you.

    KBS and Luther Vandross are phenomenal, yes. But them being good doesn't make KJK or JB bad. By the way, shitting JB is really 2012. It's really outdated to think he's not a good artist. He's been topping charts for a reason and most haters will even now begrudgingly admit he's alright. Love Yourself was a pretty good song. And I was saying that you've offered no reason as to why KJK's not good. All you've said is that he isn't. Why? What's your rationale? On the other hand, while results aren't everything, looking at it highly suggests that KJK is a great singer.

    "That's exactly my point, he's not that good!" and "But I guess if you think Justin Beiber is a good singer I really can't help you homie lol." Two direct quotes. Don't backtrack on your words. You should know what those sentences imply and if you don't... then you phrased very poorly because anybody would have perceived it that way.

    ZIPPY420, Don't talk about comprehension skills when you've clearly created hypocrisy yourself, you did compare Justin Beiber to Kjk. Kim Jong kook is known to be one of the voices of Korea sure his songs don't provide any vocal ranges like the singers you've mentioned but kjk is famous for his voice for a reason. I guess each to their own, but saying that he is mediocre .. now thats a stretch.

    Plus, to add to my opinion: if his voice was so average and not great then explain that his been singing over 15 years as a soloist, can i just say this is extremely difficult after leaving a duo/group. For him to still be recent in the Korean Music Industry definitely proves something.

    You should search up: K.will - shes gone And kjk's version Both very good vocalists, you can clearly see the ranges in K.Will's but Kjk notes are considerably higher as K.Will struggles.

    Haha, I know why you said what you said. I understand where you're coming from. When I first started liking him in Family Outing, I didn't know he was even a singer. I just thought he was a TV personality with such a strong presence. And then later on watching Running Man, I got to know him more and that he's a singer. I found out that he's a really good one at that. I'm not gonna mention all the awards and recognition he's got from being a great singer, but he is known to be one of the best singers South Korea has to offer, Sunbae singers like Cho Young Pil, Kim Gun Mo and such have approved of him. He has a unique voice and his vocal range up a level where most people can't reach. The entertainment industry knows that, but us fans just didn't because he doesn't go on talent shows like this. Which is why I'm glad that he's appearing on these shows like Hidden Singer, Fantastic Duo to showcase what he's really made of. And if you saw this episode, you will find out that he IS indeed famous for his singing ability :)
