Lee Seon-kyun sings “Boy”
Although actor Lee Seon-kyun is often referred to as The Voice (by us fans, I mean), I didn’t really expect to see him take up singing — not in an official capacity, at least — but here he is, lending his vocals to a track on Yoon Sang‘s upcoming special album, “Songbook.”
Yes, Lee Seon-kyun has contributed his lovely baritone to songs on two of his previous dramas’ soundtracks: “Ocean Travel” [바다여행] from the Coffee Prince OST and “My Sweet City” [달콤한 나의 도시] from the drama My Sweet Seoul (listen below). But nice as his voice is, it’s not really much of a singing voice.
But I suppose that’s not the big draw. Veteran kpop musician Yoon Sang’s special album will feature big-name stars, including the likes of musician and songwriter Yoo Hee-yeol (aka Toy), vocal group Sweet Sorrow, rock band My Aunt Mary, rock-electronic artist W & Whale, girl group Girls Generation, and pop diva Uhm Jung-hwa. Lee Seon-kyun is the sole actor featured.
Lee is also appearing in the music video for the song he sings on the album, “Boy” [소년], which had originally been released in 1993 on Yoon Sang’s second album (listen below). The MV was recently filmed in Seoul and features a “touching love story.” Lee explains that his decision to participate on the album was because he had been a huge fan when “Boy” was first released in 1993, and that recording a song that held good memories for him was particularly meaningful.
“Songbook” goes on sale December 5.
