There are plenty of ways to make a song stand out. From awesome vocals to rhythmic raps. Incorporating a whispering part also adds charm to the overall track, and a good one can get stuck in your head. Here are eight K-pop songs with catchy whisper sections.
8 K-pop Songs With Whisper Sections That Are Pleasing to Listen to
This track may be out of TWICE’s usual vibe, but it’s one of the girl group’s most well-known B-side tracks. In “Scandal” (from the group’s “Taste of Love”), you can already hear a whisper at the beginning, which goes “Baby, we’re a scandal/ Way too hot to handle,” capturing listeners’ attention right away. And the one toward the end just simply completes the song.
Red Velvet “Psycho”
One of Red Velvet’s popular whisper sections in a song is the word “Psycho” in their 2019 track of the same name- which both Joy and Irene whispered. There’s just something with this single word that keeps listeners addicted to it. While it may only be heard at the beginning and end of the song, “Psycho” is surely iconic.
NCT U “Baby Don’t Stop”
“Baby Don’t Stop” is arguably NCT’s most popular songs when it comes to choreography, and members Taeyong and Ten surely nailed every performance. Besides the dance moves, the intermittent whispers and soft vocals make this song sound amazing. These elements give this track a super sultry vibe that only these two can pull off.
“Fear” is one of SEVENTEEN’s darker concepts, and it sure is a masterpiece. It features the soft and almost angelic vocals from members Joshua and Jeonghan that beautifully contrast with the rest of the song, and what makes them stand out is the whispering part that might give you goosebumps.
The Boyz “THRILL RIDE”
“THRILL RIDE” is much more upbeat and brighter than most title songs by The Boyz, but they were able to pull it off perfectly. Rapper Sunwoo’s whispers are definitely worth noting, as well as maknae Eric’s smooth voice. Of course, there are also the rest of the group’s impressive vocals that complement the track.
Unlike the upbeat songs on the list, this one is more of a soft-spoken, whisper-singing style- and it can definitely be considered ASMR content. The contradiction between the soft vocals, heavy rap section, and gentle whisper makes Dreamcatcher’s “BEcause” stand out even in the girl group’s unique discography.
ATEEZ “The Leaders”
ATEEZ’s “The Leaders” is such an energetic track that you might think that a whisper section can’t fit in. Well, the boy group proves you wrong. This K-pop song has a whisper section that makes the rest of the track much more intense. Seriously, you’ll definitely have that tingling sensation.
EVERGLOW “GxxD BOY”
Finally, here’s a K-pop song with a whisper section from EVERGLOW. You wouldn’t want to miss the beautiful transition from barely-there whispers at the beginning of “GxxD BOY” to the rich vocals of the pre-chorus. A light whisper also backs the rap section, cementing the effortless vibe of the track.
