PostSubject: Research: How do we recognise idol singers these days?   Mon Jul 19, 2010 10:53 am

How do we recognise the idols of this time?

Mnet music research centre did an investigation on 1000 male and female adults for the whole month of June. The investigation looked into the 57 singers/teams who are the most active currently in the Korean music scene in terms of vocal capabilities, appearances, amiability, talent, performance and variety.

And through the survey, it was known that other than vocal capabilities, the idols are ranked very high in all the categories. In terms of their live performances, 16 ranks out of the top 20 ranks belongs to idol singers. And in terms of appearances, the girlgroups have dominated the rankings. Of the top 10 rankings we see the names of popular girlgroups like So Nyeo Shi Dae, KARA, f(x), After School, 2NE1, T-ara, 4Minute etc.

In terms of amiability, girlgroups like So Nyeo Shi Dae, Brown Eyed Girls, KARA etc also dominated the charts. And for variety shows, we see that the male idol groups like 2AM, Super Junior and 2PM are dominating the top 10 rankings.

What is eye catching is that group So Nyeo Shi Dae is #1 for all categories except for vocal capabilities and amiability. We can see the ‘So Nyeo Shi Dae power’ following their ‘Gee’ syndrome last year.

But for vocal capabilities category, we don’t see idols up on the top 10 rankings. Instead names like Big Mama, Gummy, Lee SeungChul, Shin SeungHoon are voted up high on rankings.

It seems that there has always been doubts regarding the musicality of idol groups these days.
