Member Battle Round 4: Krystal vs Suzy (Visual Maknaes)

Our 4th member battle features a comparison of each group’s maknae: the chic and stunning Krystal, and the kind-hearted and gorgeous Suzy.

KpopEncarta:               Man, where to even start.

Thekoreanjjang:         I want you to lead this one because you know both better.  I’m just gonna listen to touch and get groooving.

KpopEncarta:               hah.  Krystal and Suzy.  Broken, the both of them.

Thekoreanjjang:         Ah the crown jewels of both groups, the visual maknaes.

KpopEncarta:               They both look way too good to only be 17

Thekoreanjjang:         Make up is a hell of a thing?

KpopEncarta:               I’ve seen vids of both without makeup; it doesn’t even matter.

Thekoreanjjang:         Still I’m impressed with how much they’ve achieved at a relatively young age…especially after watching audition shows like K-pop star where people that are not even at the trainee level need so much polishing.

KpopEncarta:               They’re both pretty good vocally already.  Both of their respective songs made my list for top OSTs in 2011.  Listen to them here.

Thekoreanjjang:         I agree and their voices are still just developing.  I also find it amazing that Krystal was discovered at such a young age.



Thekoreanjjang:         I mean they were vacationing in Korea and the window to be discovered like that is so small. I’m sure whoever scouted her that day got a huge bonus from SM entertainment.  Lets just say the big winners that day were SM.  Oh I’m sorry Krystal is too young, but you can have our other daughter Sica if you want.

KpopEncarta:               Sica’s the better vocal in the family, but Krystal is the beauty and that’s saying something.

Thekoreanjjang:         LOL I bet you go to sleep every night thanking God for the Jung sisters.

KpopEncarta:               Pff.  But yeah, vocally the two are pretty equal.  dance is pretty even too.


Thekoreanjjang:         They both do certainly have their own styles.  What about their variety skill?

KpopEncarta:               that’s a tough one

Thekoreanjjang:         Krystal’s Korean American flair has gotten her in some hot water at times with the Korean media.

KpopEncarta:               this is true, especially when she was on Kiss and Cry.  She caught alot of flack by supposedly talking disrespectfully to her partner, but he came out on Strong Heart later too and explained that they had a close relationship so it wasn’t a big deal.

Thekoreanjjang:         What seems normal to us (or at least to me) just doesn’t come across the same way to the more conservative Korean audience.

KpopEncarta:               She’s been called rude multiple times by korean media, but if you see her on variety, with her members, with her sister you see her true personality.  She’s basicaly Sica lite with that chic outer image and bright personality with those she’s close to.  Sica even mentions it during in the SNSD Phuket DVDs, saying she hears that Krystal tries to copy her all the time.

Thekoreanjjang:         Haha no one wants to live in their siblings shadow, but at their relative age and stage in their career I feel that Krystal’s achieved more.

KpopEncarta:               For sure.  she’s even had a few acting roles, something Sica never did until this year unless you count the musical.  In that regard too, she’s ahead of Suzy too.

Thekoreanjjang:         Krystal’s high kick vs Suzy’s dream high!  Lots of good memories in that first season of dream high, but Suzy’s character was never a favorite of mine.

KpopEncarta:               While she wasn’t the greatest actress, I still think Suzy caught way too much flack.

Thekoreanjjang:         At her age with no acting experience what else could you expect?  I agree the media backlash was way too harsh, but i guess this was JYP’s method of trial by fire.

KpopEncarta:              Pretty much.

Thekoreanjjang:         I still believe she made some strides as the show went on and the show was able to incorporate her inability to act in comedic scenes throughout their drama.

KpopEncarta:               But she learned from the experience and got a part in a movie recently.

Thekoreanjjang:         I appreciated her ability to laugh at herself as she continued to hone her craft.  I wonder when she’ll make her cameo in dream high 2.

KpopEncarta:               Yeah Suzy is kind of shy and awkward in real life it seems, based on what you see in variety

Thekoreanjjang:         Like in invincible youth 2?

KpopEncarta:               hah.  Well that and she’s admitted on shows before that she doesn’t make friends easily

Thekoreanjjang:         I remember that, but she seems to have a strong friendship with IU!

KpopEncarta:               She is friends with IU, and other members of her 94′ line of idols: Kara’s Jiyoung, Krystal, 4minute’s So Hyun.  1994 was a good year for idols, as you can see here.  Come to think of it, October was a really good month too since both our contestants here are October babies.  Check out the other idols born in October here.

Thekoreanjjang:         I was a bit disappointed that Jiyeon didn’t show up. Even IU was expecting her there.

KpopEncarta:               Haha.  Funny that IU’s older than Suzy, but looks younger.

Thekoreanjjang:         Yup they got pretty close through dream high.  Its also really trippy hearing Suzy call IU unnie.

KpopEncarta:               But yeah, these two are definitely the faces of their respective groups, though Krystal does have to share the spotlight a bit more.

Thekoreanjjang:         Only natural with an extra member.

KpopEncarta:               Pure looks, i think i’d have to give the edge to Suzy.  Both can fit into almost any visual mold possible, but Suzy has a more natural beauty than Krystal.

Thekoreanjjang:         Definitely agree with you there.



Thekoreanjjang:         JYP really found himself a great talent in Suzy.

KpopEncarta:               Good thing 2 of the original members of miss A bailed and Hyerim got moved to wonder girls

Thekoreanjjang:         Suzy would’ve made her debut somewhere regardless, but I’m glad it was with miss A.  So as a whole package who wins?

KpopEncarta:               True but she fits so well in this group.  whole package…

Thekoreanjjang:         Vocals, dance, visuals, variety, and acting.  I’d have to say I was impressed with Suzy the most .  Like we said she has good vocals and dance ability.  Sure her acting was weak, but shes worked hard to improve herself.  I always tend to favor the ones that seem to work hard through their adversity.  I feel that right now she has the highest ceiling with her potential and that she takes the title of best visual maknae.

KpopEncarta:               I disagree with the highest ceiling part.

Thekoreanjjang:         As I knew you would.

KpopEncarta:               They’re both taking similar routes right now: being an idol for now, and acting on the side.  Krystal i think has the better voice at this point.  dance is a wash, personality is a wash.  Visuals, Suzy takes it, but that’s about it in my mind.  I think imma have to give this edge to Krystal right now

Thekoreanjjang:         I still think Suzy has a greater impact through her performances over Krystal at this point.  Whether that will continue in the future is anyone’s guess, but I’ll take Suzy in this round.

KpopEncarta:               Well as you said, one less member, but honestly, they’re both very talented and have years and years to grow.  With my Krystal pick, i’m all tied up 2:2 for members

Thekoreanjjang:         My Suzy pick leaves me tied up 2-2 as well.

    absolutely Suzy,shes natural beautiful even w/o make up..her acting definitely improving now.. u can see,shes ‘It’ girl right now…She’s dominating movies, dramas, and now advertisements too,

  7. MIRE July 20, 2012 at 12:14 pm

    suzyyy! suzyyy can sing (better than krystal obviously!) she can dance and she can acts! 🙂

    • Son Joo Ri September 30, 2012 at 2:54 am

      this is why i hate suzy fans…they think that suzy is the most perfect girl or whatsoever..when being compared to any girl idols,they will choose suzy and bash other idols..that happened when suzy is paired with any male idols too..suzy’s fans ship her with almost all HANDSOME male idols and say they’re qualified for suzy and whatever like she is god or what..i seriously don’t think suzy is THAT pretty and she just got recognized only bcoz of dream high..i don’t like both but i prefer krystal bcoz i think suzy’s fans are just too rude…plus i think krystal has a full package,she can sing,can dance,has a body to die for despite her young age,athletic and i heard she won the ice-skating show kiss & cry and excellent acting skills..krystal !!

      • Janice October 13, 2012 at 10:03 am

        How can I not agree with you? That’s exactly how I think… Everybody thinks Suzy is like the most perfect girl or whatever, but she isn’t! I don’t think that she could even dance. She’s like so awkward when she’s dancing. I don’t actually get why everyone likes her. She kinda looks and sounds fake… Just trying to keep her image… And Krystal can act too right?

        I LOVE KRYSTAL!!!!

    • Anonymous April 12, 2015 at 12:39 am

      suzy is not as beautiful as krystal. no matter singing skills or dancing skills she is worser than krystal. so i will choose krystal obviously

    • Anonymous April 14, 2015 at 6:58 am

    Suzy!! no doubt, of course she’s not perfect because nobody is perfect in this world, but if this comparison arise between Suzy & Krystal, sorry for the fans of Krystal but Suzy is too far behind from her (Krystal)

  10. mapuii vuite February 26, 2013 at 11:18 am

  13. RainiNur May 12, 2013 at 7:56 pm

    Suzy course .. Sorry Krystal fans, but Suzy is attitude more better than Krystal~
    and Suzy acting better too:)

  14. kang yong mun June 3, 2013 at 12:30 pm

    i like both of them,, but i like krystal more than suzy,, many reason why i like krystal more than suzy!!!

  15. Anonymous June 16, 2013 at 2:00 am

    Suzy is better at acting than Krystal. So far.
    I think Krystal is better than Suzy at dancing. But, Suzy’s good. I don’t see “awkward” in her dances. I don’t know why some of you guys are feeling that.
    I can’t say who’s better at singing. Honestly, both voices are really good to me.

    But guys, think of the reason why = Krystal is more recognized through her pop-group. She has more activities as a singer. And Suzy though also in a group, she seems to be doing more of acting these days instead of dancing or singing.

    Now that that’s over… Lastly, personal thoughts: Krystal wins the pretty 😀
    Sorry Suzy fans… Please! We all just have different eyes, that’s all!

    i choose krystal, sorry for suzy fans. actually i really like suzy too but when i watch this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4KiKgLpHqJA i feel so sad, and she does not have a bad attitude! people might think she’s arrogant, cold etc but she’s actually not she just not a talkative person. you can see in f(x) koala, she just like a kid. And i was so shocked when i see her fainted when f(x) (minus amber) sang Mr.Boogie, it’s show that she was hard-working girl and strong girl. and i was amazed with her ice skating skills, and she was sporty too. and if you watch her in dream team, running man, and any other variety shows, you’ll see that she’s pretty in the appearance and in her heart. i’m agree that suzy is more natural beauty than krystal but i think, krystal is more worth to be best visual maknae because i can see she’s working so hard to be a best singer/actress/model. Krystal Jung keep smiling:) Fighting!

    • Anonymous December 15, 2013 at 3:50 am

      i choose krystal too, she’s actually have fun, cute, and nice personalities in real life. she’s being no talkative and quiet to people she don’t really know like who the hell is going to show a stupid and crazy self to a strangers? and i choose her cause i think she was really determind to show that she have many talents. when she debut many people and netizens thing she just gain popularity because of her sister ‘Girl’s generation Jessica’ but she prove them wrong. she’s already being a star since little with staring a few CF you can search in youtube etc if you want a prove. she has good acting skills, nice vokal, and i don’t see anything wrong with her dance, and mostly her amazing sporty skills. And once i read when SM Town in LA, krystal gave her authograph to fans that waiting outside the hotel until the security tell her to stop. And people think she’s a b*tch? Please don’t judge her by her appearance. that’s why i choose her over suzy. Krystal jjang! sarangheo! ^^

    Suzy is prettiest than krystal 🙂
    You know Suzy pretty cuz she always smile and give natural face outside or inside and also funny girl she make my day by day happy because why only this girl can’t make me happy with she 4D character 🙂 this my opinion don’t bash

  22. suji baby April 23, 2014 at 2:40 am

    Suzy! she is the best! she already won many awards due for her dramas due to her acting skills
    so how can you say, that she is not a good actress? and compare to krystal she has a natural beauty. and suzy’s dancing skills is not awkward! she improved a lot now and to think her trainee tim.e is only one year.. hahaha.. an inborn talent indeed! and she can sing well too. she have sang different songs already for OST. and there is no problem with her attitude also bcause she is really a kind hearted girl..my opinion only

  23. pinky May 13, 2014 at 3:44 am

    Gosh. I choose Krystal, even though her attitude seems so rude and bitchy, i still like her. Many people thinks that suzy’s the perfect girl and like wth she’s pretty, yes. Talented, yes. But i think she’s not that good in dancing (im not saying that krystal is so good in dancing!) So here’s the news flash, suzy is pretty and good at singing but this will not consider her as a oerfect girl nor ‘almost perfect girl’ and I’m not saying that krystal is a perfect girl, tho (like wth krystal’s attitude is so— gosh) no offense to Suzy’s fans, just saying my opinion. 😶

  24. anonymous August 5, 2014 at 6:25 pm

    Obviously, (for me) it’s Krystal. She’s so beautiful and amazing. ILY Soojungie

  25. Anonymous April 14, 2015 at 7:06 am

    can’t u guys see wt person suzy is? even miss a’s members ignored her. i saw the news somedays before and suzy was very awkward standing behind her teammates when taking pics, i think it is her personality which makes her teammates can’t stand. and who said tht krystal has bad attitude? cant u see how she treat her sister on her bday party? cant u see how she treat her crying fans on her fans meeting? bad attitude, seriously??
    so i think suzy’s personality, acting, singing, dancing, and even the face are worser than krystal a lot.
    krystal fighting~ f(x) fighting♡♡

  26. Noble May 6, 2015 at 5:26 am

    Krystal????better than suzy????lol…we judge by wat we see.krystal always appear too cold nd she expects pple to understand dat?those appearing nice are foolish ryt???at least,she shuld do it fr d cameras…a persons first impression is always d ryt one..nd i cant stand a girl lukin so unfriendly..i wont eva compare their beauties cos krystal’s beauty is nt even on d list to be compared wit suzy’s,if it were sulli i would have surrendered buh krystal is just too plain.i would even call her ugly,infact she is ugly…maybe she can dance buh i dnt lyk her own way of dancing…suzy always leaves an innocent,pure nd amazin impression on her audience not lyk krystal who always appear too glamorous nd seductive…..u shud make a better comparison btwn idols…sulli is even times three better dan krystal nd i wonder why u even compared her wit suzy…she has’nt reached dat level please.u guys say we bash krystal,i wonder if wat u are writing is nt bashing…nd yes,we said it,suzy is perfect…daz d reason why we bcum fans of idols…will u take sumone witout any talent or skill as ur idol????nd she luks too old fr her age!hw can a girl wit such age luk lyk an ahjumma…hush!!
