…powerful, dark-hued…
 Lucia di Lammermoor “Then there’s Hyung Yun as Enrico. Ruthless, cruel, driven by political ambition, he sacrifices his fragile sister to rebuild his fortunes. Yun’s powerful, dark-hued baritone sets a bellicose mood early on. Later, as his machinations play out tragically, he warms his singing to reveal remorse.” – The Blade 
…mellow yet robust…
 Madama Butterfly “There was nothing held back by the very impressive Hyung Yun, whose mellow yet robust baritone is matched only by his skilled acting as the American counsel Sharpless. Among some impressive performances, his performance is the best overall.”Pulse 
…expressive power and unwavering clarity…
Carmina Burana “Most notable was Korean-American baritone Hyung Yun, who has appeared at the Santa Fe Opera and other major opera companies. He effectively conveyed the work’s ever-shifting emotions, singing with expressive power and unwavering clarity.” Denver Post
…sheer vocal beauty…
 Madama Butterfly“Hyung Yun, a former Domingo Cafritz young artist, won my heart with the sheer vocal beauty he demonstrated as Sharpless. “ – The Washington Post
…subtle variations of color…
The Metropolitan Opera’s Opera in the Park –  Yun impressed us with his versatility. He did justice to the ‘Toreador Song’ from Bizet’s Carmen by filling the verses with more subtle variations of color than we usually hear.”Voce di meche
