Member Battle Round 2: Jessica vs Soyeon (Ice Princess vs Mirror Prince)


Thekoreanjjang:    So onto #2!!

KpopEncarta:          Hahaha.

Thekoreanjjang:     Sica vs Soyeon.

Thekoreanjjang:     That’s a tough one.  Well to be fair both of us will probably give the nod to Sica, but lets dissect it a bit since it is closer than it looks.

KpopEncarta:           Yeah.

Thekoreanjjang:     Soyeon’s vocals are different from Sica’s, however both have solo potential.

KpopEncarta:          Soyeon’s natural voice range is a lower key, but they both have good range and control.

Thekoreanjjang:     I agree.  I still think Soyeon has a more powerful voice.  I mean her voice defines t-ara’s identity.

KpopEncarta:           True, she is main vocal after all.

Thekoreanjjang:     Without her presence as that component in the group, their performance dies.

KpopEncarta:           She has way more importance in her group, that’s for sure

Thekoreanjjang:     You can’t make the exact same argument with Sica right?

KpopEncarta:           Sica’s important to a lesser degree just cuz SNSD has alot of good singers, but she’s still better than the vast majority of lead singers out there.

Thekoreanjjang:     I gotta say I do find Sica more entertaining variety wise though.

KpopEncarta:          Oh of course.

Thekoreanjjang:     Its pretty ridiculous watching her dolphin screams and out of place Korean-American mannerisms.

KpopEncarta:           Sica effect

Thekoreanjjang:     ….and her utter uselessness in running man.

KpopEncarta:           lol

Thekoreanjjang:     Soyeon wasn’t bad in 100 out of 100.

KpopEncarta:          Soyeon is calculating

Thekoreanjjang:     …but she wasn’t spectacular either.

KpopEncarta:          She gets in her little comments here and there to great effect.

Thekoreanjjang:     True.

KpopEncarta:           But no real laugh out loud moments like Sica.

Thekoreanjjang:     Like her little nod to how Qri went WOW HOW STRONG (pretty boys) ROFL.

KpopEncarta:          Her best moments are pointing out observations of other people.

Thekoreanjjang:     I agree shes highly observant, but I also give Soyeon extra points as well for her resolve.  She left snsd and watched them go on to dominate the kpop world from the sidelines.  Still, she never gave up her on her dream and now shes helping pull t-ara into the same lines of conversation with other top girl groups.  T-ara’s strong 2011 has propelled them as the shining hope for a company (CCM) that has lost a lot of its luster since it’s sg wannabe days. Currently they have no marketable talent outside Davichi or T-ara.

KpopEncarta:          Honestly though, I dunno that it’s her that’s doing most of the pulling.  I would argue it’s the other 3: Hyomin, Jiyeon, Eunjung.

Thekoreanjjang:     But her voice is their brand!

KpopEncarta:          Her voice is the brand yes, but the korean market is all about advertising

Thekoreanjjang:     The other 3 might have brought the fans to listen to them, but her voice kept them nevertheless.  Back to Sica, Exhibit A would be her set of 3 aegyos, WOW.  Also that ridiculous wallpaper of her laughing at her underling fans with an expression fit for a queen.

KpopEncarta:           LOL

Thekoreanjjang:     So I’m giving a close nod to Sica.  This wasn’t as close as the previous match-up, but not too lopsided either like a 5.0 to 4.4

KpopEncarta:          Agreed.

Previous Battle: Kid Leader Taeyeon vs T-ara’s original leader, Sleepy Eunjung

Next Battle: Alligator Yoona vs Dinosaur Jiyeon

    Soyeon indeed. She’s a really good singer. I love her with long hair and she’s a good talker as being the speaker of the group.

    soo yeon is the best
    I love you Soyeon
    I love you T-ara

    SOYEON wins. First of all SOYEON was gonna be the leader and best vocals for SNSD before she left. And with that beating Taeyoon and especially Jessica. Any why she also beats Jessica in looks she 10X prettier than Jessica. So really there is no completion.

    Honestly, I have been a fan of both groups for a long time. I must say that Soyeon is definitely better than Jessica. Jessica does have great looks, but Soyeon is more mature, she has MUCH better vocals, and she can pull off more concepts. Jessica is good for some sexy concepts, but Soyeon can do all kinds of sexy, cute, and solemn.

    i will kill you snsd 🙂

    Soyeon is the best bias and leader for me. She’s so good at singing,her voice is so sweet and t-ara is so good.
