Lee Hana displays her musical roots
Remember figure skater Kim Yuna‘s live singing performance? We have another non-singer (non-pro, that is) exhibiting some of her skills: This time, it’s Lee Hana showing off her pipes on a recent (June 3) episode of the KBS variety show Sang Sang Plus. (Her musical talents are well-known, as she’s displayed them in most — all? — of her dramas in some form or another.)
On the show, Lee Hana showed pretty decent vocal skills with parts of two songs, especially when you take into consideration the dismal vocal skills of actual kpop singers (*ahem*). She credits her musical parents for her love of music — father is songwriter Lee Dae Hyun, who wrote the song popularized by Lee Yoon Soo, “Turn To Dust” [먼지가 되어], a fact that apparently wasn’t well-known to the others on the show, which included her Woman in the Sun costar Kim Ji Soo.
Here she is singing Sixpence None the Richer’s “Kiss Me” and Bob Dylan’s “Knocking on Heaven’s Door”:
(Speaking of her current drama, I really tried to like Woman in the Sun, but found it kinda dull. I thought Lee Hana was pretty good, but expected more of Kim Ji Soo, whose character was described as complex and layered and came off surprisingly flat.)
In answer to a comment that Lee Hana was initially supposed to debut as a singer, Lee answered that it was her childhood dream, but that didn’t materialize; she’d love if it happened, but it’s all right if she doesn’t pursue singing as a career: “I’m just someone who really likes music.”
