As Season 4 continued, the participants learned the right ways to play each of their unique charms. The whole process of picking the top 10 was riddled with twists and turns. The appearance with Yun Kyu Sung and Hong Dae Kwang to join the TOP 12 thanks to Lee Seung Chul was a very unexpected turn of events.
'Super Star K' is obviously different from all the other audition programs. They're always trying to figure out what the best way is to make sure that the contestants are able to be their best.
The most obvious ones are the ones that are most visually appealing. Roy Kim and Jung Jun Young have drawn attention since the beginning of the series. Not only are they good singers, but they're very attractive and have unique background stories.
The two of them showed that they're vocally capable during the rival death match and so viewers are expecting that they'll be good live. Roy Kim and Jung Jun Young may also dance on stage.
◆ Bursting with Talent
If Roy Kim and Jung Jun Young may seem like idol stars, Kye Bum Joo, Honey G and Volume are the contestants with a lot of talent.
If Roy Kim is similar to John Park from Season 2, Kye Bum Joo would be like Huh Gak. Rather than being incredibly unique, their vocals are very useful and can span all kinds of genres. At the time, Huh Gak was mostly singing ballads but he was the most charming when he sang, "Runnign the Sky."
Honey G was a very unexpected combo but the mixture between Park Ji Yong's rhythm and the Honey Brown members' clean vocal abilities would result in incredible synergy.
Volume is a female vocal group and they are reminiscent of Oohlala Session. So far, there has not yet been a female winner from the competition and they just might able to charm their way into the hearts of viewers.
◆ Twists and Turns
There are contestants that may be out of the ordinary and that's Lee Ji Hye, Ahn Ye Seul and Dick Punks. Lee Ji Hye and Ahn Ye Seul seem much more mature than their age and seem incredibly bold and skillful for their age. It's totally possible for them to end up in the top few of the contest.
They are teenagers full of potential so even if they do not win the contest, they may be scouted by the bigger management companies for training.
Dick Punks may be a team who can change depending on the mission. They have been very flexible in their ways of interpreting the songs that they are given. They possess as many strengths as Busker Busker may have in Season 3 when they went up to the TOP 2.
