[Alumni][Attention! Hanyang-in] Tenor Yoo Chae-hoon, Alumni of Phantom Singer 3, Turns the Tables and Wins

Korea's first crossover vocal audition program, Phantom Singer 3 ended on the 3rd. The program came to a successful end with about 500,000 text messages received during the live broadcast of the finale. Team "La Poem, which included alumnus Yoo Chae-hoon (Dept. of Voice, '07), won the title by creating a reversal in the live audience vote. Yoo, a graduate from Hanyang University's Department of Voice, canceled plans to study abroad and attending several audition programs such as Mnet's Trot X but did not stand out. He then decided to give himself one last shot and attended Phantom Singer 3, which welcomed him with a great response. His popularity increased after a perfect performance of "Il Mondo" from the movie About Time. After every round, participants queued up and begged to go on stage with Yoo. La Poem: Yoo Chae-hoon, Park Ki-hoon, Choi Sung-hoon, and Jung Min-sung (Source: JTBC) La Poem was made up of tenor Yoo Chae-hoon, tenor Park Ki-hoon, countertenor Choi Sung-hoon, and baritone Jung Min-sung. Leader Yoo played an essential role in this group's forming. Yoo showed amazing responsibility to the point where he mumbled his worries about the finals in his sleep, and his team members depended on Yoo mentally as well as for his musical parts. Before his last performance, Yoo said, "I want to be a good brother in the group who can create positive synergy both musically and mentally," showing his responsibility. The last performance focused on showing great teamwork and individual skills. Various genres such as pop and K-pop were tried out on stage. The first song, "Nelle Toe Mani" highlighted the grandeur of four people while the song "Shining" by Ja woo-rim highlighted the delicate expressions. They focused more on their individual musical colors rather than harmony in their third song "Madmoadzel Hyde," and for the last song, they chose "The Rose" with a message of "returning the love you have received." As a result, La Poem received the most audience votes out of the three groups in the first round, creating a reversal. La Poem consists of two tenors, one countertenor and one baritone. The biggest advantage is the stability that comes from the voices of the members, as it is a composition that can cover the full male vocal range. The combination of the high-pitched countertenor, two melodic tenors and the bass-like baritone allows this group to sing in any musical genres perfectly. In fact, they have proven that they are able to sing in various genres from K-pop to EDM, increasing the audience's expectations. In an interview with Seoul Newspaper on the 13th, La Poem revealed their future ambition. Their dream is to present the music people are willing to search for and listen to. They also mentioned that they want to be ranked on crossover album charts. and also perform on big stages with good intentions like "Live Aid." La Poem said, " We listen not only to classical music, but also to the latest pop music like Dua Lippa as well as old pop," and added that "in the way that some vocalists don't confine themselves to certain genres, we also want to avoid boxing ourselves in to fixed genres. We want to do music where we become the genre." Global News Team Global@hanyang.ac.kr Translation by: Lee Hee-jin
