Jungkook has been getting criticized by locals for his “bland” vocals.   Army and especially his out of touch fanbase called jjks ( spearheaded by Murilo aka pigrilo or porkmuri) keep attaching and inserting  his name to the list of the world most revered legendary musicians. Delusional is truly understatement. 

 

The concept of a “good vocalist” is fundamentally subjective, heavily influenced by personal preference. Elevating him to the status of a legend, however, stretches credibility. He has been positioned as a transformative figure in K-pop and BTS, despite not lacking vocal talent like his bandmates. The crux of the matter, often overlooked by his most fervent but critical fans, is the subjective nature of musical excellence. What defines a remarkable singing voice or musician varies from person to person.

My take as an long time army:
Jungkook’s voice is very one dimensional, bland and colorless. It doesn’t evoke any emotion whatsoever.  It doesn’t have a wow factor when you listen to his songs.   Very vanilla. Very grey in a world full of color.  Often monotonous and nasal sounding. He sounds the same in every song. His songs are so incredibly boring. He sounds very similar to a few K-pop artists on the scene right now.  Some army couldn’t even distinguish his voice from other idols.  Again he doesn’t have a bad voice. It just doesn’t grab or intrigue many people. And a lot of people prefer other types of voices.  Musicians who put their entire being into their work.  Singer songwriters with one of a kind unique voices.   Voices where you can hear the joy, despair, fear, sadness and passion.

Jungkook vocal skills are not impressing me lately. The days of Still With You are long gone.  As an army I was very dissapointed in his album. Especially in the making of it.  He had zero connection to his work.  Shawn Mendes song sounded like a cheap copy of Shawn Mendes. The Ed Sheeran one sounded like a cheap version of Ed Sheeran. Speaking of Ed ..Ed and Taylor Swift are one of those singer songwriters that have a very emotion evoking voice. They are not a songbirds like Mariah or Stevie Wonder but they have their own warmth and color. Their own style.  This is what sets them apart. This is why people are so drawn to them. And there are so many singer/songwriters & Indie bands who are such great musicians – but deranged JUNGKOOK solo fans would label them “ bad vocalists”.

They say BTS is nothing without Jungkook. I think BTS would have been a failure – A nugu kpop group -without Jimin, or Jin or Taehyung. Their voices add something that Jungkook doesn’t have. Their own unique style. Especially Jimin and Taehyung.  RM and Suga have said time and time again their voices are needed to bring the songs alive. Jung kook solo fans really need a reality check. You can praise Jungkook vocals if that is the type of singing you like. Doesn’t mean he is the best. He is just the best to YOU.  But not to me and others like me.   Some of us like originality, uniqueness, passion, edge and musicians with their own style.  Stop this unhinged behavior  and stan your faves in peace and love.  You can like or dislike someone’s voice – which is VALID.  But don’t go around claiming legend status for someone who is clearly not that.
