Lee Hi – Rose – Music Core April 20th 2013 Review

20 Apr

I know it’s been a while since I last wrote a review but I moved house and didn’t have the Internet for the longest time *sad face* (╯︵╰,)

But I’m back and I couldn’t be happier to write my next review for Miss Lee Hi’s brand new song, Rose!

I love Lee Hi, since her debut with 1, 2, 3, 4 (you can read the lyrics here) I’ve been a huge fan. To me, Lee Hi’s vocals sound unique against the rest of the K-pop industry. She has a very soulful voice and YG have done a great job crafting a retro, R and B infused sound that matches her voice to a T. It also works because it sounds completely unique to the majority of K-pop’s biggest hits right now. Of course, the song has been highly produced but her sound sounds so much more authentic compared to a lot of the ‘clean’ songs. Anyways, I’m rambling now – check out her performance on Music Core above and read the review below!

Style & Staging

Lee Hi - Rose - Music Core April 20th 2013

I think Lee Hi always looks cute. Yes you have haters that comment about her being short (wha…?) or that she never smiles but she’s a performer. She delivers emotion when she sings and connects to the music so for me, that’s not a problem.

Lee Hi has looked gorgeous throughout the First Love promotion cycle, even with her It’s Over performances, although I think her current styling for Rose is absolutely beautiful. From the MV to each stage performance, she has served fierce silhouettes accompanied with bold colours and floral prints. I’m a stickler for a floral print.

Although today’s outfit has been my favourite, she still looks like such a star! And for someone that doesn’t dance, she has got such great stage presence that you can’t help be mesmerised by her. I miss her purple eyes though…

Lee Hi - Rose - Music Core April 20th 2013

Overall rating for Style & Staging – 5 / 5 stars.

Choreography

Lee Hi has never been a huge dancer when she performs. That’s not a bad thing; some people are singers, some people are dancers. However, I think the choreography for her Rose performances are beautiful. Her backing dancers always look so elegant and of course you have to love the drama with the male dancer.

It’s nice to see Lee Hi getting involved with the choreography, I think it’s only a case of time before she takes a greater role in performing. But, you can’t fault her for being flawlessly elegant with every move!

Overall rating for Choreography – 4 / 5 stars.

Vocals

Lee Hi’s vocals are always perfection! I can’t get over how old she sounds. She has such a soulful voice – a voice that sounds old but in a good way. She sounds like she’s been singing for decades, her voice belies how young she is. I wish I could sing like her!

I love the fact that Lee Hi doesn’t rely on a backing track or lip syncs any of her performances. She can sing softly and controlled but her voice is absolutely deathly when she goes for a big note. Nevermind being one of the best voices in K-pop, I think she has one of the best voices in pop music at the moment.

Lee Hi - Rose - Music Core April 20th 2013

Overall rating for Vocals – 5 / 5 stars.

The Overall Score for Lee Hi’s Rose performance on Music Core is… 5 / 5 stars!
