Singapore – Ever heard of the term ‘coin karaoke’? It basically means that you drop a coin, select your favorite song and sing your heart out. Voicebooth KTV, located at The Cathay, is the first karaoke place in Singapore that provides this coin karaoke service. Opened in early 2017, Voicebooth has since attracted many Korean customers due to its Korean-themed concept and has drawn a crowd of teenage kpop-lovers who love to sing.
The concept of coin karaoke, or we call it “coin noraebang (동전노래방)”, is not foreign to Korea at all. As you walk down the streets of Hongdae (a popular spot for youngsters in Seoul, Korea), you will find multiple coin karaoke outlets.
All you need is just a $1 coin and you can select the song of your choice at Voicebooth. Similar to a vending machine, you can drop your coin into the karaoke machine and your selected song will start to play. Not to worry if you are afraid of singing in the public, the rooms at Voicebooth are well soundproofed and offer great privacy.
Not only does Voicebooth provides the coin karaoke service, it offers the traditional hourly bookings as well. Check out the price board below!
At an affordable rate of $10/hour on weekday afternoons (mon – thur), $15/hour on weekend afternoons (fri – sun) and $20/hour on every night, Voicebooth would be a great place to visit if you are craving for some Korean songs in a Korean-themed environment!
Do not fret if you are unable to speak or understand Korean, the friendly staff at Voicebooth speaks English and there are English guides for customers regarding the use of the system in the rooms.
Not forgetting that Voicebooth has one of the most updated lists of Korean songs in their song inventory. When your favorite group releases a comeback and you are tempted to sing along to their songs, head down to Voicebooth and you might be surprised to find the song that you are looking for.
