Kim Rae-won sings for Insadong Scandal
Actor Kim Rae-won is lending his voice to his fourth OST, this time for his upcoming movie Insadong Scandal.
He’d previously sung on the soundtracks for several projects: the 2005 film Mr. Socrates, 2006’s Sunflower (listen below), and 2008’s drama series Gourmet (listen here). The song he’ll sing is actually a cover of “Today” [오늘은], originally by the Yoon Do-hyun Band.
I don’t think Kim Rae-won is much of a singer (he even admits, “I’m not really a good singer, but I’m thankful to have this opportunity”), but there’s a refreshing down-to-earth real-ness to his voice. I don’t snark about him wanting to conquer the world as a singer because it’s clear that he’s never harbored those aspirations. Which is why I feel his singing on OSTs is more of an exercise in character work — the vocals are iffy, but the emotions are there. Although yeah, maybe I say that just because I love him.
Insadong Scandal releases at the end of April, and Kim is expected to enlist for army duty after that.
