K-netizens compare the two main vocalists of BLACKPINK and TWICE: Jihyo sings live better, but here’s why Rosé stands out

Korean netizens are divided over who is the better singer with better vocal technique between Jihyo and Rosé. 

In the vocal line of 3rd generation girl groups, TWICE’s Jihyo and BLACKPINK’s Rosé are often listed among the best vocalists. Recently, a topic discussing the main vocalists of BLACKPINK and TWICE has received much attention on Pann Nate. Korean netizens shared divided opinions when choosing who sounds better between these two famous female idols.

Jihyo and Rosé both have important roles in TWICE and BLACKPINK’s songs. Both taking on the main vocal position, Jihyo and Rosé are often in charge of high notes and the most difficult and technically challenging singing parts.

Many Korean netizens’ pick is Jihyo, because of her thick, warm and powerful vocal. The leader of TWICE impresses listeners with her charming, emotional and memorable voice.

In addition, Jihyo‘s voice and breath control when hitting high notes live are deemed more stable than Rosé‘s. In particular, Rosé‘s vocal runs sometimes make the audience uncomfortable because they sound too… jarring.

Meanwhile, many netizens sided with Rosé. Knet loves the female idol’s vocals thanks to her unique and inspiring voice color. Many songs become better with the participation of Rosé. During the participation in Sea of ​​Hope, Rosé was often praised for her extremely emotional and sweet vocal performances. There are opinions that Jihyo has a hard time going solo, and if she releases a solo song, she won’t be able to enter the Melon chart.
