Thekoreanjjang: So onto round 4! You have it 2-1 snsd rite? I have it 2-1 t-ara!
Thekoreanjjang: That was a solid round though. Onto the maknaes?
KpopEncarta: Sunbyung couple.
Thekoreanjjang: Ah rite. Hyomin vs Sunny. Hyomin is the oddball in t-ara, you can definitely get a sense of how awkward and shy she was in her early days of variety in invincible youth.
KpopEncarta: She’s the closest thing they have to a variety idol. It’s not Soyeon.
Thekoreanjjang: So true.
KpopEncarta: She’s witty, but it’s different. Variety sense, I would say it’s Hyomin.
Thekoreanjjang: Though she had to learn how to walk by running.
KpopEncarta: Ironically from her opponent
KpopEncarta: Sunny has the most ridiculous variety sense and entertainment value.
Thekoreanjjang: They had some really good moments on IY. Sunny does, but she also has the most forced aegyo as well. The kind where I’m sure shes a bit sick of her “idol” character when shes at home. That’s not a knock on her…rather a reflection of how she was raised in her company. I give extra points to Hyomin for how sincere she actually comes across in variety.
KpopEncarta: Oh I’m sure.
Thekoreanjjang: Whether it be with strangers, other idols, or her group members. Exhibit A would be her letter to sunny. That was really well written..
KpopEncarta: Yeah but that’s not really a variety moment though.
Thekoreanjjang: But then she tops it with awesome clips of her fanning Sunny in secret off camera. That was epic.
KpopEncarta: She definitely tries hard, but I like how effortless it comes for Sunny.
Thekoreanjjang: Sunny has a really nice voice too. I prefer her voice over Hyomin’s.
KpopEncarta: I give Sunny the edge in voice.
Thekoreanjjang: I’m not saying its better, but judging from the sound alone…
KpopEncarta: She’s smoother and has a larger range.
Thekoreanjjang: I prefer her voice. Exhibit B is their imitation scene of each other in IY. Hyomin had a good imitation of Narsha, but Sunny was AMAZING as Hyomin.
KpopEncarta: LOL. Spot on imitation.
Thekoreanjjang: I laughed so damn hard, and Hyomin seemed visibly depressed at how bad she came off. Still doesn’t stop it from being hilarious. I gotta say its prob 5.0-4.6 in Sunny’s favor
Thekoreanjjang: So 2-2 tie for me.
KpopEncarta: Agreed, slight edge to Sunny. Makes it 3-1 in favor of SNSD for me.
