I’m falling for the man – I mean, voice – behind this mask.
Every fortnight for the past three months, I’ve been looking forward to the Korean music programme, King of Mask Singer, just to catch his performance. Behind the cute mask and the “Music Commander In My Neighbourhood” (or “Music Commander” for short) moniker, lies a singer with an amazing voice.
With his wide vocal range, he seemingly handles almost any song with ease. It’s breathtaking hearing him hit the high notes. He sings the mid-range notes beautifully while his low notes are clean and precise.
For 14 straight weeks (to date), he has fended off challenger after challenger to reign as the King for seven consecutive times – a record-breaking feat. The panelists on the show have nothing but praises and admiration for his riveting performances every time.
At first, I was curious to know who he is. But now, I’m just relishing his every performance.
I have become a fan now. When he finally removes his mask, I’m going to search for his performance videos. For now, I will settle for his fortnightly performances.
Seeing is believing. Check out his mind-blowing performances:
