10 Of The Strongest Female Vocalists In K-Pop, According To Fans

There are a lot of them, but these are some fan favorites.

There are tons of talented female vocalists in the K-Pop industry these days, given how many girl groups and soloists are currently active. There are always going to be some, however, that stand out among the crowd for their particularly unique, emotional, or powerful vocal skills that captivate fans. This isn’t just about who can hit the highest notes, but about who fans connect with most and have the best overall technical skill in singing. Fans recently discussed who they think stand out in this regard, and here are 10 of their top choices.

1. Taeyeon (Girls’ Generation)

“Taeyeon is at the top for me personally. I feel something in my heart when I hear her sing.”

“Taeyeon has great control over her voice, is extremely versatile and has incredible emotional sensitivity. Pioneer of the sings-like-a-7-time-divorcee-squad let’s go”

2. Haeyoon (Cherry Bullet)


“Haeyoon was the best vocalist in PD48 (with Heo Yunjin as a close second) and I will stand by that fact. She’s such an incredible powerful vocalist with such great breath control making her the most stable in the competition. Too bad CheBul’s not hitting off yet.”

3. Seunghee (CLC)

“Besides the obvious ones, Seunghee from CLC has one of the best voices rn. Since Pepe she showed a voice that stand out the most.”

“CLC’s Seunghee, hands down. Her voice is a blessing, she has improved so much over the years and her covers always make me emotional. Look forward to her uploads every month :’)”

4. Yuju (GFRIEND)

“Like honey. One of the prettiest voices I’ve ever heard.”

5. BoA

“SM main vocalists or solo singers are mentioned in every era’s best vocalist group. Usually the longer the idol is in the industry the better they become too, as JYP said 10 years to be a singer, 20 to be a star, 30 to be a legend. So Boa would probably be my pick.”

6. Siyeon (Dreamcatcher)

“All of Dreamcatcher tbh but Siyeon is an absolute beast. Her choice of songs on V-1 got me so excited and showed off her range pretty well :)”

“Siyeon from Dreamcatcher has one of the most versatile voices I’ve ever heard period. Her voice sounds natural in every type of song: rock, ballad, pop, jazz you name it. Her voice also fits rapping and if she focused on that she could also become an awesome rapper.”

7. Dia

“Former Kiss&Cry and current soloist Dia. Such an amazingly talented vocalist who never really got the big break she deserved.”

8. Denise (Secret Number)

“Imo Secret Number’s Denise is insanely talented vocally, and is probably one of the strongest main vocalist of the next gen of girl groups.”

9. Eunji (Apink)

“I know i say this every time such a question gets asked but that’s because it truly pains my heart how underrated eunji is T-T she has amazing controls of her vocals and its just so so powerful & she makes singing look SO easy when it obviously isnt[…] pretty mind blowing how effortlessly she does it”

10. Lee Hyori

“I don’t actually like FinKL as a group, I think their music just wasn’t very good, but I loooooooooooove Hyori’s solo stuff, especially the later stuff, I mean things she’s more famous for are very good but her last full album was sublime, so, so, so good. The older she’s gotten, the better music she’s made.”
