The idol boy band Super Junior wrapped up a third round of album activities this past weekend and has begun to prepare for their next album. However, we can still hear their voice in the new KBS2 drama “The Partner.”
“Sorry Sorry,” the title song of their third album, as well as “It’s You” have been big hits. Super Junior has now sung “Hero,” the theme song of “The Partner.” The rhythmic song with lyrics of hope sung by SJ members Yesung, Ryeowook and Kyuhyun is expected to be a hit melody.
Rock band Rumble Fish, which is set to release their fourth regular album in July, also took part in the drama’s OST. Their song “Love To Me” is a bright number about a dreamy love to come one day.
Super Junior and Rumble Fish are known to have enjoyed the recording, the songs being bright and jovial. The music director of “The Partner,” Lee Pil-ho, said, “It is a court drama but not a heavy, dark story so I tried to write songs that way and cast young, fresh singers as well.” After the recording, SJ members said, “The song is great and we have a good feeling about the drama cast and story also. It may be a blast. We’ll also watch the drama,” as they conveyed their confidence and affection about the drama to the producers.
The new Wednesday-Thursday series on KBS2 is a court drama with no guns and swords but featuring a battle of words by the lawyers. The series, combining the genres of romance, thriller and mystery with stories to amuse and touch viewers’ hearts, aired its first episode on June 24. (KBS/TV Report)
