During her November 19 interview with Newsen in which she discussed her new film 'Dorihwaga' in detail, Suzy admitted that learning pansori (traditional Korean musical storytelling singing style) vastly helped her singing. 

The singer explained, "I wondered if it would help [me sing better] because it was completely different genre but it really helped a lot. Truthfully, the way I sang up until now was J.Y. Park's method of 'half air half noise' and I was using more air when I sang. But for pansori you have to use all noise. The vocalization itself is very loud, strong, and majestic." 

SEE ALSO: Suzy shares the reason why she decided to star in 'While You Were Sleeping'

"Typically, when I'm recording [in the studio] I would always get the pointer to use more of my vocals. But this time, I was told to use more air. It's the first time I heard that so it was fascinating to me. I thought 'Did [my voice] change after learning pansori?' I think I will continue learning it.

Well, she did not help the movie, it sank like a Titanic big time. Stick with singing , you can sell more albums. Leave the acting to professional.

To those who don't know what pansori sounds like, here's an example by a professional: ; ;youtube. com/watch?v=BazfH6yrtjg (Chunhyangga is a famous Korean love story) ;It's a difficult traditional singing style and you need to have a proper training to do it. It also takes YEARS to master. Plus since pansori singers need to memorize an hour or so's worth of storytelling lyrics, it's very difficult. You might also notice how in the video example, the pansori singer's voice is very nasal and throaty sounding-- that is how pansori is supposed to sound like. So Suzy's gonna be all nasally and throaty when she sings pansori.

Listening to that video, the pansori sound has some striking similarities to blues vocals.

Watch out JYP, next thing you know she'll be trying to teach all your other artists the 'right' way to sing. ;

Make fun of JYP's singing style all you want, but his half-air half-vocal technique is the best type to support and protect your voice

kitteauaena Thursday, November 19, 2015

uh no it's not? The people over at kpopvocalanalysis have stated over and over again that the half-air half-sound technique is terrible, and they've been musically trained. Jimin from 15& doesn't use that bogus half-air, half-sound technique and she's one of the best female singers in JYP in terms of vocal technique.

Sweet_Milk_Tea Thursday, November 19, 2015

No it's not. It's terrible vocal technique

kitteauaena Thursday, November 19, 2015

hey, if it helps her get rid of JYP's BS "half-air, half-sound" technique I'm all for it. ;

AKP has a serious crush/obsession on/with Suzy. It's like every other story is about her today. ;

There's some hardcore Blackjacks running this site too, I swear they get a fan-boner every time the 2NE1 name is breathed.
