Super Junior’s Kyuhyun Sings His Version Of “Confession Is Not Flashy” As Latest “Hospital Playlist” OST
Super Junior’s Kyuhyun continues to live up to his “Prince of Ballad” title as he serenaded with his mellow vocals for a new drama OST!
Reviving a well-loved classic, Super Junior’s Kyuhyun featured in the newest soundtrack for the tvN medical drama Hospital Playlist.
Serving as the fourth OST for the drama, the Super Junior member sang his own version of the song “Confession Is Not Flashy”, a ballad released by singer Lee Seung Hwan in 1993.
Bringing it back 27 years since it was first released, Kyuhyun was able to present the song in his own style that sets it apart from the original.
The lyrical melody of the original, retro-style lyrics blended perfectly with Kyuhyun’s emotion-evoking vocals which make him perfect for ballads. It also presented a calm atmosphere to viewers with the well-blended arrangement of acoustic guitar and rich orchestration.
It was also shared that even before the first episode of Hospital Playlist, “Confession Is Not Flashy” was already decided to be an OST. Moreover, Kyuhyun was also tapped early on to sing the track, according to producer Ma Kyung Hee.
“The original singer Lee Seung Hwan’s color and concept are clear, so I thought a lot about the direction of the arrangement,” he said. The producer also explained that since its theme was about love, the dynamic of string instruments were added to the ballad which Kyuhyun’s voice brought to life, creating a “new Kyuhyun ballad”.
Meanwhile, Hospital Playlist, which stars Jo Jung Suk, Yoo Yeon Seok, Jung Kyung Ho, Kim Dae Myung, and Jeon Mi Do, airs every Thursday at 9 PM KST.
