Kim Seul Ki to Debut as an OST Singer with Ko Kyung Pyo for ′Flower Boys Next Door′
Kim Seul Ki will be showing off her skills in singing with an OST piece for tvN′s Flower Boys Next Door.
The OST special I Wake Up Because of You, sung by Kim Seul Ki, will be a bright modern rock piece. Her best friend Ko Kyung Pyo will also be featured in the song.
The single follows the actress′ feats in singing on Saturday Night Live Korea.
The lyrics speak of a couple that has just started on its relationship, and Kim Seul Ki will act the role of a girl who is shy yet manages to get what she wants. Ko Kyung Pyo will sing as her boyfriend, who stands before his shy girlfriend and leads her on.
Kang Hyun Min, singer and songwriter who was formerly a member of Weather Forecast and Loveholics and is currently with the three-member-band Brick, wrote the song. He previously produced the OSTs for such popular dramas as My Lovely Sam Soon and Coffee Prince, and again managed to show off his skills in a piece that perfectly fits Kim Seul Ki′s charms.
Kang Hyun Min commented, "Kim Seul Ki is great at expressing emotions, as was expected. I told her she should be a girl in love, and she came up with a voice that was just right; I was surprised at how well it fit the mood I had set for the song. I was also thankful because she was good at singing."
Kim Seul Ki came to join the OST crew thanks to an offer from the OST producers. Though it is her first official single release, she managed to push on with the love she′s always harnessed toward rock music.
The song will be released on February 26, and a music video showing Kim Seul Ki and Ko Kyung Pyo at the recording booth will also be released at the same time.
