[Interview] Shin Seung Hoon “A Voice like Son Seung Yeon Will Improve Gayo”

Singer and coach Shin Seung Hoon didn’t hold back his praises on his protege. Up until the final episode of Mnet’s The Voice of the Korea on May 11, coach Shin Seung Hoon held back his words and thoughts, but as soon as it all ended, he let loose all the things he had been wanting to say.

It was all the more special for Shin Seung Hoon as his mentee on The Voice of the Korea, Son Seung Yeon, ended up being the show’s ultimate winner. On this day, Son Seung Yeon sang her new song Ugly Duckling and Yoon Bok Hee’s Everyone and received a standing ovation from the 3,000 individuals in the crowd.

Following the live finale, Shin Seung Hoon spoke with enews saying, “Voice of the Korea was thoroughly well made. Above all, I’m truly happy Son Seung Yeon sang well to the point she received a standing ovation.”

Shin Seung Hoon didn’t hold back any praise for his mentee or the other top four finalists, Yoo Sung Eun, Ji Se Hee and Woo Hye Mi.

“[The show] is well made. I sometimes thought if our kids weren’t crazy, because they were that good. I believe these kind of voices need to come out to create an improvement in gayo.”

Just as Shin Seung Hoon said, the songs from the top four finalists on that night were all dramatic and captivating. Yoo Sung Eun, Ji She Hee, Woo Hye Mi and Son Seung Yeon all gave spectacular performances that didnt seem like they could come from amateurs.

Shin Seung Hoon added, “[The audience] should know Seung Yeon received standing ovations despite being an amateur and not singing her own songs but covering other songs. I think it’s due to Son Seung Yeon’s concentration level, emotional and lyrical delivery that enabled her to be the winner. To sum it up, she is someone who one can say will become gayo’s brilliant diva.”
