It was a great year for male vocalists in Asian pop. 2010 heralded the return of popular Korean entertainers Se7en and Rain, as well as the official solo debut of already popular Big Bang vocalist Taeyang. 2010 also welcomed former Super Junior member Han Geng into the solo artist fold and celebrated another successful album release from Wang Leehom. And those are only a few of the amazing vocalists who stunned us with their talent and incredible music. But only one deserves the title of the best male vocalist of 2010. And that lucky man is…

The guy’s had his ups, and boy, has he had his downs. But even through all of the media scrutiny, the nonstop promotions, and the pressure to be more than just a singer and a dancer, he’s done incredibly well for himself. With each album, no matter how much autotune YG Entertainment may feel the need to layer his voice with, Se7en’s true talent is eternally apparent.

Se7en (born Choi Dong Wook) has debuted to great success in Korea, Japan, and the US. At the young age of 26, he’s done more with his career than most people could ever hope to accomplish in a lifetime. And it doesn’t just stop at singing and dancing. He’s also a moderately successful actor, and he even hopes to pursue acting in his future.

One of the most impressive things about Se7en is that he was one of the first Korean pop artists to break out of the fold and admit a personal relationship. His admission to dating Park Han-Byul, a well-known Korean actress, in 2009 nearly bruised his career irreparably. But somehow, Se7en trudged on, releasing his “Digital Bounce” EP in 2010 and reminding us that true talent never dies. Each performance was performed with dedication, as he adhered to his strict principle that he’d never lip sync live performances.

So he truly deserves the honor of being considered the best male vocalist of 2010, after fighting the wave of fangirl scrutiny, hitting a peak that has long since passed and proving artists aren’t limited to one climatic point in their careers, and continuing to be as down-to-earth and heartfelt about his music as he was when he first debuted. Se7en reminds us that true talent never dies.
