How short is too short?

2? 3?

Whilst trying to prove to Kimmy (known to y'all as Suckmydee) that No Eul (of Rainbow) is actually quite beautiful, I stumbled across this video.


In the very beginning of the video, she sings what appears to be a shortened version of her part. No. Her involvement in the entire song is literally this x2 + an extra 2 seconds near the end. That totals to an approximation of 6 seconds. Which should be considered absolutely ridiculous, but instead, it's becoming a norm in Korea's pop scene.

So I leave you with this question (as well as the title): Which idol has the shortest singing time? (leave name + song).

  2. i remember reading an article some time ago that said Seohyun during Oh! had the least time. i think it was about 9 seconds (Taeyeon had the most with 21 seconds i believe)
    and how about Sooyoung in Chocolate Love lol

  3. I think Jooyeon got like 3 seconds in Bang.

  4. 7:24 - I mostly meant promoted singles, since I know some idols get zero parts in songs for dramas, movies, or CFs.

  5. Kiseop from U-Kiss has only gotten two solo lines, and both are really short.

    A bunch of the CoEd members don't get any lines at all, but this is probably a blessing.

  6. T-ara wins! In Yayaya Boram got 0 seconds. Qri at least had: yo my yo my lova lova supa lova

    Suprisingly A Pink - I Don't Know each girl gets around 14-15 seconds EACH.

  7. Naw, Ricky from Teen Top - Supa Luv.

    He has like 1 sec for a line in the beginning.

  8. sucks for big groups to spread the singing.
    When the ones that have little singing of their own, I think they usually group them up during the chorus to give them something.

  10. lol both no eul and yoonhye got the same line in rainbow's "A". it wasn't even a line...it was like a noise D:<. they actually rapped along with woori but then i guess DSP was like "fuck that. they're cloudin' up woori's space and shit!" and so they gave those two the smallest, lamest parts in all their singles. i wish they'd go back to cutting up woori's rap time and spread it with all 3. but since rainbow fans fap to woori more, she'll keep getting her decent amount of song time.

    but i gotta love your cause! noeul is indeed very pretty ;). hyunyoung is my fav, but i like all of rainbow.

  11. 2PM's Junsu, despite being the main vocalist and easily the best singer in the group, has no lines in their debut song "10 Points of 10". He only has adlibs, which are pretty much "yeahhhhh", "she's my lady", and 2 more. While that may longer than some other mentions, for the lead/main vocalist in the group, it may rank as one of the shortest.

  12. Heechul, the third album [Sorry, Sorry]
    3 seconds exactly, and it was so autotuned that I couldn't even tell it was him singing.

  13. She reminds me of Eunyoung from Brave Girls but Eunyoung is my bias now , hahaha..

    but in all seriousness she is also very beautiful for a rapper :D

    (Oh, and the rapper from Brave Girls is HOT AND PRETTY ^_^)

    better is. his rapping would have ruined the whole song.

    leeteuk gets hardly any lines ever. i like him and his singing is... okay, i guess, but yeah, im not sad about it.
    and shindong got no line in bonamana at all.

  19. Nickhun, he got like 00000,00 seconds in Don't stop can't stop, and not a lot more for every 2PM's songs.
    Can't believe no one said him xD

  20. Btw, can i say someone got way too many seconds? Her first part in 2NE1's IAB is really ruining the song for me. The second is okay, it even surprised me but the first part is ... NAAAH!
    Guess who is it? DARAAA!
