Why Do Korean Men Love Brian McKnight?

Oh that title is misleading. I meant why do Korean men love singing Brian Mcknight songs? I like some of his songs but for some reason every male Korean singer uses Brian as a marker for their own singing. Why not Maxwell or Keith Sweat? Oh man how hilarious would it be watching Kim Bum Soo singing “Nobody?” Okay never mind, I think I might have found my answer.
So many Korean artists have sung “One Last Cry” and surprising considering there’s an “L” in the song. No one want to hear One Rast Cry. Anyways, the best Korean cover I’ve seen has to go to Naul.

The closest thing would be Beyonce but I doubt anyone would put her and Brian Mcknight in the same vocal category. If anything I think Mariah would be a better model to compare vocal abilities (although it scares me that a grown woman has a butterfly fetish). This guy knows what I’m talking about:
