The Hilarious Story Of How ENHYPEN’s Heeseung Figured Out He Had Perfect Pitch

His origin story as a musical prodigy couldn’t be more ‘organic.’

Perfect pitch, also known as absolute pitch, is a rare ability that allows a person to identify an exact musical note just by hearing it, without the help of a reference note. There are very few people who are born with this talent. ENHYPEN‘s Heeseung is one of them.

There are several instances where Heeseung’s perfect pitch enamored fans, like that one time he tuned Jay‘s guitar by ear

or when he could guess the notes Lee Mi Joo played on the glockenspiel very quickly.

But nothing beats the story of how Heeseung realized that he possessed this rare ability since childhood. It all started when with the sound of a fart.

During ENHYPEN’s appearance on Weekly Idol a year ago, Heeseung shared this hilarious story. When he was in elementary school, Heeseung was on a car ride with his father. While driving, his father let out a fart, and he immediately recognized the note as ‘So.’

Though Heeseung shares this ability with some other K-Pop idols like BTS‘s Jungkook and TWICE‘s Dahyun, it will be difficult to find anyone who can outdo this discovery story.
