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...

aldrin_m Friday, June 3, 2016

PLease sing Loveable :D

Manami_chan Friday, June 3, 2016

I was waiting for this!! Any idea how to participate?!

pablo27 Manami_chan Friday, June 3, 2016

There's an app... if you watch the show it'll tell you...

Manami_chan pablo27 Saturday, June 4, 2016

I found it, thank you <3

pablo27 Manami_chan Saturday, June 4, 2016

YW... I wonder what happens if someone foreign actually gets in the top 3...

Manami_chan pablo27 Saturday, June 4, 2016

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

pablo27 Manami_chan Sunday, June 5, 2016

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...

Aww...Finally, I like him as entertainer plus love him as a singer. I wanted him to be more of singer in shows. I hope he shows up as a singer in programs more.

ajshawol1990 Thursday, June 2, 2016

There are many actors who are getting into singing these days. Hope he does a good job.

ajshawol1990 Thursday, June 2, 2016

Oh I just got to know about his songs. So no need to worry about this multi-talented guy.

L_catzzz ajshawol1990 Friday, June 3, 2016

Haha. He started as a singer. He's a singer turn actor.

L_catzzz Friday, June 3, 2016

Actually, he's more of an entertainer than an actor.

ajshawol1990 L_catzzz Friday, June 3, 2016

Oh i didn't know that. Thanks!

zippys420 Thursday, June 2, 2016

I like KJK, but with that being said, he's not really known for being that great of a singer...

Warframe zippys420 Thursday, June 2, 2016

lel.. whut ??? .. In korea he is famous for being a singer lel... he had won 3 daesang award from kbs , sbs and mbc .. his song lovable still being played ..how can you say he is not a great singer lel...

gureumcloud zippys420 Thursday, June 2, 2016

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.

sp341041 zippys420 Thursday, June 2, 2016

WHAT?? You must be newbie then..... you need to do more homework on music. LOL

zadeepzone sp341041 Friday, June 3, 2016

Calm down crazy fans . We talking as a vocalist with a wide vocal range.He is an idol.He sings ballad song for a reason.Who care it just to increase the show rating

gureumcloud zadeepzone Friday, June 3, 2016

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

zadeepzone gureumcloud Friday, June 3, 2016

he started as an idol but he keeps singing balled because he doesn't have the vocal range.I like him as tv host but don't like singing style

gureumcloud zadeepzone Friday, June 3, 2016

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.

zippys420 gureumcloud Friday, June 3, 2016

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.

gureumcloud zippys420 Friday, June 3, 2016

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.

zippys420 gureumcloud Friday, June 3, 2016

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??

gureumcloud zippys420 Friday, June 3, 2016

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.

gureumcloud zippys420 Friday, June 3, 2016

youtube famous*

zippys420 gureumcloud Friday, June 3, 2016

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.

Rahiro zippys420 Friday, June 3, 2016

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.

gureumcloud zippys420 Friday, June 3, 2016

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.

zippys420 Rahiro Friday, June 3, 2016

Where did I say he had no musical talent??

zippys420 gureumcloud Friday, June 3, 2016

Where did I say KJK was bad? Where did I say JB is "not a good artist?" You guys are ridiculous. lol

gureumcloud zippys420 Friday, June 3, 2016

"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.

zippys420 gureumcloud Saturday, June 4, 2016

You really need help in reading comprehension. lol

gureumcloud zippys420 Saturday, June 4, 2016

You're really good at just saying things that don't have any substance.

zippys420 gureumcloud Saturday, June 4, 2016

OK, I'm convinced, you're eleven years old.

gureumcloud zippys420 Saturday, June 4, 2016

Says the one claiming I need help in reading comprehension and telling me that I'm beyond helping for thinking Justin Bieber is good. But yeah, you got me. I'm eleven years old.

zippys420 gureumcloud Saturday, June 4, 2016

Stop proving my point! lol

Dominicus4488 zippys420 Tuesday, June 7, 2016

Kim bum soo good singer ?lol... Even my collage friend singing better than him. Too compare kbs with kjk maybe for you kbs is better but for a lot of people kjk is better.. He win 3 daesang from 3 tv station and what did kbs win? Stupid argument lol

Deez7 zippys420 Thursday, August 4, 2016

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.

Deez7 Thursday, August 4, 2016

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.

Deez7 Thursday, August 4, 2016

I completely understand your view point Zippy.

Deez7 Thursday, August 4, 2016

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.

katiehla zippys420 Saturday, August 13, 2016

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 :)
