Jung In and Hyun Soo sing “Way Back Into Love”
I’m officially obsessed. After watching episode 17 today, I’m completely in love with Smile, You. I enjoyed the first few episodes, sat through the next few episodes, and my heart started quivering around episode 9. Now, I’m all in. After today’s lovefest, I remembered the Chocolate episode with our couple and immediately went to feed my addiction.
The Chocolate episode was an OST special with various live performances, including Lee Min Jung and Jung Kyung Ho singing “Way Back into Love” from Music and Lyrics. Because I haven’t really followed KMusic (except maybe in college with Seotaji and Cool), my knowledge of KMusic has basically been OSTs. So it was a little nostalgic to hear a bit of music and watch some of the old drama scenes. The loudest cheers went to Brilliant Legacy‘s Hwan/Eun Sung kiss and Kim Jung Eun‘s Lovers in Paris kiss.
Below is our couple singing and the short interview after. I know how difficult it is to sing on stage in front of a huge audience, especially when you’re not a singer. So applause to the couple for their courage. They also hurried after a long shoot, so I’m sure it was doubly difficult for them. That said, it was fairly amateurish and they (especially Jung Kyung Ho) looked quite nervous. But 17 episodes of Smile, You has earned them a reprieve from my critical ear. The cutest parts are when they make little nervous faces at each other while singing. And the overly enthusiastic audience member as the 2 are announced. Hee-hee.
