LE SSERAFIM, Source Music's emerging g.irl group, performed at the Coachella Music and Arts Festival in the US on April 13. However, their performance was met with controversy over their singing skills, raising questions about the singing standards of today's K-pop groups.

Immediately after the video recording LE SSERAFIM's performance at Coachella was spread on social networks, many K-pop fans expressed disappointment in the group members' singing skills. Many people believe that they sing in the wrong rhythm, out of tune, lack volume control and even "sing like they scream".

Many audiences called LE SSERAFIM's performance "a Kpop disaster at Coachella", and many also suggested that the group should think about lip-syncing at later stages so listeners can have a better experience.

These criticisms stem from the fact that LE SSERAFIM members often have difficulty handling high notes, singing erratically and lacking stability throughout the performance. In particular, in the song "Fearless", Sakura and Yunjin caused many audiences "earaches" when singing loudly and lacking volume control.

Despite facing many mixed opinions from fans, LE SSERAFIM received many compliments from foreign media. Many articles and music websites praised the group's performance, saying they brought a vibrant and energetic atmosphere.

Some articles also praised the dancing skills of LE SSERAFIM members, saying that they showed professionalism and that the group's choreography and ability to rock the stage still deserve recognition.

Specifically, some praise from foreign media for LE SSERAFIM includes:

Rolling Stone "Despite some vocal technical issues, LE SSERAFIM rocked the Coachella stage with an energetic performance and unique style."

The Guardian "LE SSERAFIM is a promising new group with a strong musical style and an impressive stage. Their performance at Coachella is an affirmation of their potential for future growth."

In addition, music critic site NME gave LE SSERAFIM's performance at Coachella Week 1 a 4/5: "While K-pop often focuses on pristine perfection, LE SSERAFIM's performance makes makes everything more comfortable and brings a new authenticity.

"The b.ody is still bent down, the five members happily sway their tightly clasped hands, an action that replaces the wordless scream: "We did it". If "it" brings a performance performing intensely, hilariously, making the Sahara stage their own, even for just 40 minutes, LE SSERAFIM certainly did it."

Billboard also chose LE SSERAFIM as one of the best moments on day two of Coachella: "LE SSERAFIM delivered a passionate performance on a huge stage, making the audience dance along with their 10-song set list. The highlight of the performance is the unreleased track '1-800-hot-n-fun'. A new era of excitement and fun will open for LE SSERAFIM."

In addition, reporter Jeon Hyo Jin of DongA newspaper criticized Hybe's cold attitude towards the domestic chicken controversy and reflected on foreign media praising LE SSERAFIM's live singing ability. Claims that the company did not pay attention to solving the core problem but only focused on setting "first" or "in the shortest time" records and that the company only selected and published articles Praise in a positive way is like an act of "covering the eyes of the public.

LE SSERAFIM is a 5-member South Korean g.irl group, founded in 2022 by Source Music, a subsidiary of Hybe. Only released nearly 2 years ago, LE SSERAFIM has quickly created many high achievements on the US Billboard and Spotify charts.

LE SSERAFIM's performance at Coachella has sparked much debate about the singing standards of today's K-pop groups. Some people believe that K-pop management companies are focusing too much on members' looks and dancing abilities while neglecting their singing skills.

However, there are also opinions that K-pop's singing standards are gradually changing, towards diversity and in accordance with the tastes of international audiences. From this perspective, LE SSERAFIM, with its strong and individual musical style, could represent a new trend in K-pop.

Before LE SSERAFIM, Blackpink was a Kpop g.irl group that made a strong impression when they were invited to Coachella twice (2019 and main performance in 2024).

This popular music festival is an important opportunity for Kpop idols to enhance their reputation in the US market.
