You be the judge: Lee Da Hae’s single
Well, you’ve seen the photos, you’ve heard about the song, and maybe you’ve seen the clips of her video. But now you can listen to both versions of the Lee Da Hae rendition (Korean and English) of the song “I Love Rock ‘n’ Roll” and judge for yourselves.
As for me, I wouldn’t say it’s awful… It’s certainly not as awkward as the video.
She sounds… very nasal and whiny, and holds JUST enough of a tune that you can see why people thought Lee Da Hae had enough ability to put out her own single. (I think they were overshooting.)
(It also suggests that despite her schooling in Australia, she’s not fluent in English, which I’ve suspected for a while. Her pronunciation’s better than the average Korean, but it seems she’s trying to compensate for her deficiency by mumbling — I can’t even really tell the English version is in English. Which is why I think the Korean version is far better, even if they sound almost the same when you’re not trying to understand the lyrics.)
Let’s hope she sticks to acting. She’s actually pretty good at it.
