Netizens call out unequal line distributions for Yuqi, Shuhua, and Miyeon for (G)I-DLE's comeback


Netizens are calling out Yuqi, Miyeon, and Shuhua's lack of lines in (G)I-DLE's most recent comeback.

A rising internet community forum post called out the lack of lines for the members in the group's newest title track "Oh My God". 

As seen by the chart, Soyeon and Minnie received almost 3 times as much time on the song compared to Shuhua, Yuqi, and Miyeon

Soyeon was also featured on 50 seconds of the group's track "LUV U", with Yuqi and Miyeon receiving only 15 seconds of time while Shuhua received only 14. 

The lyric distribution for "Maybe" likewise unequally distributed as well with Shuha and Yuqi receiving only 5 to 6 seconds of singing time on the song. Miyeon sung for 16 seconds.

Netizens have been commenting on the disparity, saying: 

"I think this a controversy for the creators of the songs."

"I can feel that Soyeon and Minnie get all the parts." 

"Isn't Miyeon the main vocal?"

"I feel really bad for Shuhua and her fans."

"This group should be renamed to Soyeon and friends."

What do you think?

I see (G)I-DLE in a way very similar to 2NE1. The leader/main rapper is also a very well rounded vocalist and in both CL and Soyeon’s cases, the group’s songwriter. This is even more apparent in (G)I-DLE because Soyeon is also the producer, so naturally the songs will fit her better and that’s okay. Also, there are more members in (G)I-DLE, which makes the discrepancy stand out more, and there are very unique voices in both Yuqi and Miyeon (as was the case with Bom in 2NE1), so those voices are reserved for the more iconic/dramatic parts of a song. When you build a luxury house, you don’t usually paint the walls with liquid gold, instead you put the money in statement pieces and unique accents. That’s what Miyeon and Yuqi are to the group. As for Shuhua, she definitely got the Dara role in (G)I-DLE, which may be a little unfair but if we’re being completely honest, both Shuhua and Dara need very little to shine bright on their own.

Haven't heard their new song, but the voice distribution could come from a production point of view. Maybe their voice doesn't suit this particular song, there's no need to distribute every song evenly, it might not sound good.
