Kim Haneul records a single
by | February 7, 2011 | 20 Comments

Actress Kim Haneul (Road No. 1) will be taking another turn in the recording studio by recording a single for famous songwriter (also singer) Yang Jung-seung, who has written tunes for the likes of Jo Sung-mo and Ivy.

Her track will be a part of Yang’s Stars in the Night Sky 3 compilation, and will be her first time recording as a featured artist on someone else’s album. It won’t be her first recording ever, though, since she sang a track on the soundtrack to her popular 2008 drama On Air, “Sky Love,” which you can listen to below.

Kim recorded this song in between shoots for her new movie Blind, traveling from the set in Jeonju to the studio in Seoul. (Blind is the thriller starring Kim and Yoo Seung-ho, where the sole witness to a horrible crime is visually impaired.) Her track is said to be a “sweet melody” with “pretty lyrics” that suit Kim Haneul’s vocals. Based on the song below, I’d say that Kim doesn’t have strong vocal chops, but she gets by on the lightness of the tune and the catchy melodies, which carry her through.

Kim said, “I was really nervous, but the staff helped me a lot, and I had fun recording the song. I hope I’ll be able to convey my feelings to my fans through this song.” Her song will be available for sale online on the 8th.

    It doesn’t sound that bad, but I’m glad she’s an actress and not a singer.

    Not bad

    She can probably sing “Sweet Child of Mine” better than Fergie, though 😛

    Well you can’t expect too much. She’s an actress not a singer.

    Somehow, she reminds me of Lee Jia, even though their acting and stuff is really quite different XD But just appearance-wise. And that movie sounds interesting! ^^

    Kim Haneul is such a talented actress (she has great comedic timing, good drama skills and basically can play any character they give her) but she has an okay NICE voice and I will surely support her. I wish her the best.
    Better than some that have recorded…
