Red Velvet’s youngest member used to be criticized, but in Red Velvet’s latest comeback, she has been showing great improvements.
Since being added to the Red Velvet lineup in 2015, Yeri has constantly dealt with negative comments such as poor singing, weak dancing, and superficial performances. The youngest member’s visual is also claimed to be less outstanding than the other 4 members.
Moreover, because Yeri’s position in the group is just sub-vocalist and sub-rapper, she did not have many opportunities to showcase her talent. She is often given the least singing part within 5 members. Therefore, whether the female idol has improved her performance skills after a year and 7 months of Red Velvet’s hiatus is what netizens were curious to see when the group made a comeback with the song “Queendom” in August 2021.
As a result, the latest comeback shows that the youngest member of Red Velvet has made great progress. Although she still has the fewest lines in the group (only accounts for about 12.55% of the song), the female idol always delivers a complete performance on stage. Yeri has also confidently shown off her charming vocals at encores celebrating Queendom winning on music shows and was praised for her perfect live singing. She sounds exactly the same as the studio version.
Yeri used to be criticized many times for not trying her best at dancing before, but now her dancing skills have also improved. She performed the dance moves flexibly, decisively, and in synchronization with her members. The female idol born in 1999 has impressed netizens with her confident and refreshing stage presence, which matches Red Velvet’s concept this time.
Not only getting better at singing and dancing, Yeri has also received compliments for her visual. Thanks to weight loss, she now has a slimmer body figure and more eye-catching style. At the fanmeeting on August 16 of Red Velvet, Yeri became the focus of attention because of her gorgeous and youthful beauty. Yeri’s fancam also received many positive comments on her performance skills as well as her appearance.
Some comments from netizens:
- She has a lot more confidence. She seems happy and comfortable on stage.
- Yeri is especially confident in this comeback. The way she manages the stage is also brighter, which is a big improvement. Can’t wait to see more of her fancams.
- I think she’s the one who improved the most in this comeback.
- She’s grown up. No matter what she sings, her voice on the album is great. She dances well too, you see. And her stage presence is also overwhelming. Good jobs maknae!
After a long time of being underestimated, Yeri’s endless efforts have now been acknowledged by the public. The female idol contributed to Red Velvet’s top-notch performances, thereby showing that she is an indispensable piece of Red Velvet. The girl group is only complete in her presence.
