I think this is a very rare video from 2004. Live performance with his husky voice. 😀
Pardon me if my questions sound stupid. I only started paying attention to seunggi when I started watching 2d1n last yr, and really like him after watching MGIG.
I was very surprised when I first heard his nuna-song bcoz I’m so used to his current voice. Why was his voice so husky last time, did he do anything to change his voice?
Wat does “heodang” means and how did he get this nickname? Thanks! 🙂
Seung Gi’s voice is husky b/c this song was from his 1st album so his voice showcases the raw talent that he has. As for changing, its nothing more than time and refinement of his voice – he’s learned to control his voice over the years.
As for your 2nd question, ‘Heodang’ is loosely translated as ’empty-headed’ Seung Gi, though very very smart, tends to say things randomly w/o thinking that are: funny, don’t make much sense, or ask questions with very obvious answers lolols. Kim C gave the nickname to Seung Gi way back when on 1n2D XDD
btw, love Dream of A Moth – its not often we get to hear this one live, especially since its so rare. Thanks so much for sharing it here!
and now..i’m off to bed *listens to Seung Gi’s 1st album*
perhaps teenage seunggi had a husky voice, because it was in his puberty? you know how boys’ voice tend to change specially during their teen years
I remember seeing this video. Back then, the conversation was about whether Seung Gi played the piano while singing or not. LOL
Some fans believe the changes in Seung Gi’s voice is deliberate to fit his singing style. His first album is rock-ballad, he debuted as a semi-rock artist and was recruited when he was in a teen rock band. The huskiness feels like (there have been discussions back and forth) it was partly forced to be there for him to sing rock songs. Imagine if he sang the songs on Volume 1 with the voice he has right now. Wouldn’t be as good or appropriate for Dear J or Delete. I know he continues to sing Delete, I prefer his version on the first album. Dear J is supposed to be a rock remake of LSH’s song – with the husky voice, it still is his best rendition.
As his musical style moved toward ballad in Volume 2, the roughness went away for the smooth and soft voice of a ballad singer. The change is gradual as he still retained the huskiness in Volume 2… a great album, love the song choices, esp the power and control in his voice there. The difference between LSGi the singer now and in 2006 (Vol 2) is the song choice – more challenging and shows off his vocal much better. Honestly, he’s truly a better singer than how he sounds like in Shadow and the MGIAG OST.
Would be nice if he brings the style back in the next volume by working with Psy again.
Tryp, thank you so very much for sharing. I love SeungGi’s current refined and controlled voice but I also love his husky voice! Oh, The Dream of a Moth is one of my faves. It’s my first time to see this perf. And I’m so happy that you posted it.
Take care and God bless you always.
