Radio show host Sung Sikyung defends BoA in her lip sync controversy
Radio host Sung Sikyung recently defended BoA on her lip syncing controversy on his radio show “Blue Night with Sung Sikyung.”
On the August 3 episode of “Blue Night with Sung Sikyung,” Sung Sikyung showed his support for BoA by stating, “Recently everyone has been criticizing BoA for lip syncing her performance, but BoA isn’t a robot.”
The lip syncing that Sung Sikyung was referring to was BoA’s performance of “Only One” on the July 22 episode of SBS’s Inkigayo. It was revealed that BoA had lip synced the entire performance, which caused some controversy.
When asked why she had lip synced the performance, BoA explained, “The choreography for ‘Only One’ makes it difficult to sing live at the same time. As a result, my promotions will focus more heavily on stage presentation.”
Agreeing with BoA’s explanation, Sung Sikyung also stated on his show that when an artist such as BoA wants to present such a wonderful yet challenging choreography, lip syncing should be allowed.
Furthermore, Sung Sikyung also said, “We already know that BoA has a great voice, so we shouldn’t put such high demands on her.” In addition, to end his strong opinion on a lighter note, Sung Sikyung jokingly remarked, “BoA should get number one soon, Psy hyung is just too popular!”
