When it comes to K-Pop idols taking over the world, one group that is always mentioned is ATEEZ. Since debuting in 2018, the group has gained attention not only for their dazzling visuals but their undeniable talent on stage when it comes to performing.
Netizens can hardly believe it when the group can go from an extremely sexy concept…
To a cute number and even a ballad all within the space of one comeback.
In the past, idols have been known to lip-sync to focus on their performance. However, ATEEZ has always gone out and performed live, showcasing how stable their vocals are at the same time as being able to put on some of the best and most elaborate performances in K-Pop.

Yet, it seems that despite ATEEZ constantly proving how good they are, some netizens still believe that they don’t sing live. The group recently sat down with WIRED and answered some of the most asked questions on the internet that people wanted to know.
One of the questions was, “Does ATEEZ lip sync?” Unsurprisingly, leader Hongjoong seemed amused by the question knowing that it was the group’s chance to prove any doubters and haters wrong.
Hongjoong passed the question over to ATEEZ’s oldest member Seonghwa, and as expected, he had the most respectful but obvious answer that ATINY has always known.
We can proudly say that 100% of our performances are sung live.
Hongjoong then turned the question to Yunho, asking, “Yunho, do you lip sync?” It seemed as if it was something that the group might have heard a lot, as the group’s golden retriever and happy virus explained, “Nope!” and even joked that he was as likely to lip-sync on stage as he was in the interview, which was impossible.
Of course, ATINYs loved the answers from the members as they know just how hardworking the members are and how much effort they put in to ensure they both sing live and perform perfectly.
Even on Twitter, ATINY found it hilarious to think that people still doubted ATEEZ’s vocals.

There is no denying that ATEEZ’s live vocals are the reason they’ve been called one of the “4th Generation Leaders.” Although netizens might say the group is only known for their performances, they never let their vocals falter, proving they are true idols.
