K-Pop fans are always on the lookout for content that showcases their favorite idols’ raw talents. Killing Voice, the popular singing show on Dingo Music‘s YouTube channel, has become the place for such moments.
The show, renowned for featuring live performances by skilled vocalists, allows fans to experience the unadulterated voices of their beloved artists, offering a ‘killing’ blend of healing and excitement. Esteemed acts like EXO, Taeyeon from Girls’ Generation, and IU have graced the show, leaving fans in awe of their vocal prowess.
However, the latest episode featuring SM Entertainment‘s prized quintet, Red Velvet, has transcended into the realms of legendary. Known for their impeccable vocal skills, the anticipation for Red Velvet’s Killing Voice challenge was astronomical — and it’s safe to say they surpassed expectations.

The episode wasn’t just a display of vocal talent but also a historic moment for Killing Voice, running over 33 minutes —the longest in the show’s history. Red Velvet performed an impressive lineup of 20 songs from their rich discography. Seulgi hinted at an even larger repertoire prepared for the show that had to be cut, unfortunately, constrained by the episode’s length.
