Lip syncing is a controversial topic in K-pop. We’ve had the likes of Stray Kids’ Bang Chan share that sometimes they need to lip sync because an idol’s exhausting lifestyle could ruin someone’s voice if they sang live all the time. restless time. However, there are K-pop groups who almost always lip-synch, whether on their own accord or by order of their label, giving enemies ammunition to drag them around. Since lip-syncing is rare in the West, it’s also always a hot topic among international fans. And now, monster rookie STAYC has revealed her thoughts on lip-syncing.
Many musical shows and award shows also prefer artists to lip-sync and intentionally turn up the volume of the back track because they feel the general audience is put off by the raw vocals and heavy breathing due to exhaustive choreography. But that hasn’t stopped some, as some bands have confidently revealed that they’ve never lip-synced, as seen in the case of Ateez, which makes fans proud. And now, STAYC also shares that even when they were told to lip-sync, they were still singing live.
Stray Kids’ Bang Chan Explains Why K-pop Idols Tend To Lip-Sync
5 Ateez Performances That Support K-pop Group’s Response To Whether They Lip-Sync
STAYC Talks Lip Sync
In a recent video, STAYC explained why they felt the need to sing live. They said, “We’re on stage, so we have to perform live.” They asked, “Is there a reason to play live? You should if you are singers. If I’m not live, I don’t feel like I have energy. Just not singing and just lip syncing and dancing… the energy feels different through the camera. STAYC also sang live during the filming of their music videos although it was not required.
In another appearance, the group also talked about the cracks in their voices that deter many idols from performing live when they’re not at their best. STAYC was grateful that their producer assured them, “The PD said the broken voice wasn’t our fault. It is true that if you are false, you have not practiced. But voice crackles are not due to a lack of practice. Fans were touched that the girls were more confident when STAYC said, “Yeah, it just means we do our best singing, so our voice cracked.”
“Could Never Be STAYC Girls”
The Knetizens were impressed when they made comments such as “They don’t take any hits, they just tell the truth” and “They just have cool principles, what a hit… I feel like most idols only sing with their real voice a few times and then throw their mics away. They debuted for over a year and a half but still maintain that attitude. They’re really cool. One user explained, “Still, people still believe that means the singer is not talented 💀. Voice crackles are normal, people. Additionally, lip-syncing is sometimes necessary. If you have a lot of schedules where you have to sing, it can be harmful. I mean, if you’re screaming a lot more than usual, it already hurts, so no, better take care of your own health. Edit: With this, I hope no one thinks I’m trolling them or trolling them because no. I believe one day they will lip sync, they are getting more and more attention so it wouldn’t be good for them to always sing live, they are too young.
One fan tweeted, “Stayc too talented to lip sync to the point where they sing live while shooting their mvs.” Another posted: “Stayc is the norm en idols are called singers and they are right. why would someone be called a singer if they continuously lip sync on stage? One fan added, “Hello stayc girls who don’t have lip sync in their vocabulary.” Another reported, “Thoughts on the lipsync community? STAYC: We respect them, but our mics are always on. One fan wrote, “Their favorite lips sync and stand on stage like water-soaked robots. could never be stayc babies. Another shared, “STAYC will still sing live.”
