It looks like Aladdin‘s “Speechless” is the latest Disney classic that’s taking the world by storm. It’s a strong ballad that is a little reminiscent of it’s global phenomenon predecessor “Let It Go”. And also like “Let It Go”, K-Pop idols are loving it right along with the rest of the world.
A few days shy of a month after its release and four K-Pop idols have tried their hand at the powerhouse of a song. Three of the four were actually uploaded on the same day: June 21. (June 21 has now been officially deemed “Speechless” Day)
1. NCT’s Doyoung

K-Pop’s reigning cover king Doyoung‘s famous covers have even caught the attention of other idols, and with a soft-yet-strong voice practically made for ballads “Speechless” was a perfect fit.
2. Dreamcatcher Siyeon
Ballads are a slight departure from Dreamcatcher‘s signature K-Pop/Rock Princess sound, but Siyeon absolutely slayed “Speechless” with sweet and clear voice.
3. Park Jimin
Park Jimin tackles the high-note heavy ballad effortlessly with her legendary sultry, soulful vocals.
NC.A was ahead of the wave, releasing her cover a few days earlier on June 19. Speaking of waves, her cover is a tidal wave of talent “meant to wash [fans] away”.
Hopefully more idols will join in on the wave and bless fans with their covers of “Speechless”.
