There’s been a recent trend of MR Removed videos. What’s MR removed? MR stands for Music Recoreded, so it basically means Music Recorded Removed. That means the song is taken away from a video so you only hear the singer(s) real vocal talents. Many videos have had MR removed for popular artists such as KARA, DBSK, SNSD, BoA, SHINee, Taegoon (ok, not so popular, just known due to the appearance of JJ on his MV XP), Big Bang, and Wonder Girls. All you have to do to find them on youtube is type into the search “the artist” + MR and you’ll be able to find quite a few MR removed videos of their performances. Of course this has caused a lot of controversy from netizens and youtube-ers. There is no surprise BoA, DBSK, SNSD and most SM artists have recieved praise for their singing despite heavy dancing. The ones that have been poked at constantly are Wonder Girls (ahhhh no surprise there, i’ve always said that), Taegoon, and KARA (hm and i thought they were ok. but then…ayiyi!) Of course, there’ll be fans saying and defending their favs by saying ‘it’s only one video, it couldve been one bad performance’ but no, there’s quite a few videos of DIFFERENT performances. Some are slightly better than others, but I’m talking about OVERALL here. Yes I’m biased since I’m a big fan of many SM groups/artists such as DBSK, SHINee, and BoA, but hey, the vids don’t lie. It’s themselves singing. Unless you want to lie to yourself, ok then, whatever. There’s a reason I’m a fan of most SM artists lol. I hate bad singers <.< no matter how well they can dance or how they look.
P.S. DBSK + BoA amazed me with their vocals! They would be dancing so much and they would sound excellent! SERIOUSLY! Watch the SBS Gayo Daejeon 2008 MR Removed Vids of DBSK and BoA .Like WOOOW.
