Kim Soo Hyun′s ′The One and Only You′ Ranks No. 2
Kim Soo Hyun, better known as ′Hwonie′ these days, is now making waves on music charts, thanks to the overwhelming popularity of The Sun and the Moon.
Kim′s The One and Only You (translated title), which will be included in the The Sun and the Moon OST, was released online on March 13 and, in a single day, managed to reach the second and third spot in the Melon and Mnet music charts respectively, coming in just behind 2AM’s new song, You’re Just Like Me.
The fact that Kim is an actor, and not a singer, made it even more impressive and was a testament to the widespread popularity of the drama and of the ′Hwonie syndrome′.
After Kim finished shooting for the The Sun and the Moon on the 8th, he jumped right into his OST song preparation and several advertisement shoots for three intensive days. Starting from the morning of March 9 and continuing onto the evening hours the following day, Kim was busy shooting for his CF commercials and recording his song for The Sun and the Moon OST.
A rep from Kim Soo Hyun′s agency Key East said, "Kim listened to the recording of the song in his spare time and immersed himself in The One and Only You. [The recording] was easier than expected due to his past experience in Dream High, where he played the role of Sam Dong."
Lately, Kim has gotten several offers to turn his song into a single album debut, and he is strongly considering a ballad-focused digital single over a dance-based album.
The lyrics of The One and Only You tells the story of Hwon′s ardent love and will be featured on the March 14-15 episodes of The Sun and the Moon.
