Mithra surprises and amazes everyone with his singing voice on King of Mask Singer

1 1316

Mithra is widely known to fans and the general public as one of main rappers/composers of Epik High songs. His singing voice has only been heard once before on an Epik High song “Trot”

 

Hence the surprise of everyone when it was discovered that  Mithra appeared on the 97th episode of King of Mask Singer , not as a judge, but as a rock ballad singer  .

Mithra’s costume persona was Poseidon and his competitor was Thor. Together they sang “Moon of Seoul” by  Kim Gun Mo.  The voting was pretty tough as judges/viewers really enjoyed duet and found that each singer added their own colour to the song. Unfortunately Mithra lost by 5 points (52-47). Despite the loss it is still is considered an amazing achievement considering that Mithra predominantly raps in his songs and this was the first time for him to truly demonstrate his vocal skills.  Mithra’s solo song was “After send you” by YB which also complemented his vocal skills.

Compliments Mithra received from the judges

“his voice is that as if one can only focus on him – his voice catches people’s ears better”
“he grooved naturally to the song”
“he has that rhythm and blues type of voice”
“I think he is capable of singing and rapping”

Whilst Mithra was on the show as a singer, judges were quick to deduce that his identity was that of someone who participates in hip hop songs. They deduced this based on the way he walks and the way he holds his microphone.

It seems ‘hiphop’ elements will stick with Mithra even if he chooses to become a singer.

Mithra had previously appeared on the show as a judge before, however on this episode he revealed that when he got the first call from this manager to be on the show he thought he would sing but since he was a judge , he felt a bit disappointed.
Mithra also commented that he likes singing and that he never had a chance to sing in front of people so he wanted to sing on the show and show off his voice someday.

After being revealed he was taken to the backstage where he commented about his appearance and how is wife, Dayhun, suggested he should shave because he may look dirty with a beard and that others would like it if he looked neat and tidy.

On the topic of Epik High, Mithra announced that this year Epik High will release a new album and they will appear more on tv.

Needless to say we look forward to what Epik High have in store for us this year!
