Netizens were stunned by a duet between AKMU Suhyun and EXO D.O as they covered Rewrite The Stars, originally performed by Zendaya and Zac Efron in the 2017 film, The Greatest Showman.
Many viewers praised the two for delivering a performance in which their vocals accompanied the romantic, emotional tone of the song in an excellent way. D.O especially was praised for his collaboration with Suhyun and the way their voices fit together.
- Wow, Suhyun has sung with many male artists on various music programs, but these two seem to have the best vocal combination. Haha, please release music together.
- They’re competing with each other’s high notes, but it doesn’t feel burdensome at all and the two tones sound harmonious. I want to hear the full version.
- D.O’s voice, which is clear with just a hint of huskiness, and Suhyun’s clear and pure voice go really well together. I listened to it with my ears, but why does it feel like my lungs have been cleared, as if I’ve just breathed fresh air?
Suhyun notes that it was difficult to find a male vocalist for this specific duet, much to the comedic dismay of her fellow groupmate and brother, Lee Chanhyuk. But, D.O was the perfect fit.
I’ve been wanting to perform this song for a while now, but I couldn’t find the right male vocalist… Like, it’s a really difficult song, you know? But, finally, I’ve been able to perform this duet on this show. So, this has been a dream come true for me, too.
