Block B‘s ZICO is putting up flames on Twitter, ranting about those who claim to be singer-songwriters when they clearly don’t have the talent to be one.
In a rare show of aggression for a K-Pop idol, Zico seems to call out those who claim to be “singer-songwriters” when they aren’t really good at all. He writes in his tweet that anyone can create a song just by using a “MIDI” but that doesn’t necessarily mean a great product will be made.
“The term ‘singer-songwriter’ isn’t a word with much merit anymore. Anyone can write a song, and anyone can use a MIDI if they invest a few hours in it. The important thing is how good they are at it. But I’m not saying I’m good.”

However, he doesn’t seem to aim this tweet at anyone in particular. He also ends his tweet by backtracking a bit, stating that he believes he’s not that good either. The tweet was also made at 3:13AM which may indicate it was not made with a clear head!
싱어송라이터는 더 이상 메리트 있는 수식어가 아닌 것 같다
곡은 그 누구나 쓸 수 있고, 미디 또한 몇 시간만 투자하면 누구나 다를 수 있다.
중요한 건 그걸 얼마나 잘 하느냐의 차이
But I'm not saying I'm good
