t Yoonmirae(t 윤미래)- Always (Descendants of the Sun OST) Cover
March 14, 2016
April 8th update: 110,000+ views!!!!!! What has happened to the world? Am I being pranked right now?! How did this cover get that many views in such a short amount of time?? I must be dreaming!! THANK YOU SO MUCH EVERYONE! *crying tears of joy*
First, let me guess what brought you here...
Weeeeeeeeee *fangirl mode activated!*
Raise your hand if my guess was correct ;)
Seriously though, how amazing is this drama? Main actors? Camera work? Even this poster?! Gahhhhh
I'm utterly obsessed with the drama right now and I'm not gonna lie, I see scenes from it even in my dreams because I'm such an easily-affected child! But seriously, everything in this drama was done well. Yes, they may have had a few funny moments when it came to executing certain medical procedures in a not-so-professional manner *cough* CPR *cough cough*.... but overall this drama was exceptionally done.
Also, the directors of Descendants of the Sun did something vey unusual with this drama. Unlike most of the Korean mainstream dramas that are filmed as the episodes are released, Descendants of the Sun was actually filmed in advance in its entirety. This obviously makes the drama stand out not just in terms of a consistent plot but the quality of acting as well. Imagine being an actor and having to develop your character as the viewers are watching the beginning of your drama and are sharing their reactions and expectations on social media. It's very hard not to get affected and start altering the character based on popular opinion. And obviously, the plot in this drama was interesting and very importantly CONSISTENT. Boy, have I seen multiple Korean dramas whose plot completely turns around in a matter of an episode. To me as a viewer that's tiring and unsettling.
As for the soundtracks.... Oh my, where do I even begin. I'm pretty sure you guys can guess which OST was my favourite :) I mean, otherwise I wouldn't have spent weeks working on a cover of it. Yes, Yoon Mirae's song has completely won me over from the first episodes and I knew I had to cover it. I'm also so surprised that it's getting a lot more views than any other cover I've done in a while. Have I really done an acceptable job with it? What do you guys think?
As for my plans to cover any other soundtracks from this amazing drama... Hmmm I'm not sure to be honest. A lot of you have been suggesting I do 'You Are My Everything' by Gummy but I just don't feel it as much as I felt this cover. Gummy is one of the most talented singers in Kpop at the moment and I just feel a little bit intimidated to cover her song (not that I wasn't intimidated to cover Yoon Mirae's song cause she's just a queen!). I'm really leaning towards Mad Clown's 'Again' but the rap part in that song might take me some time to tackle, so please stay tuned!
I'm trying really hard to not give out any spoilers so let me know if you want me to review this drama!!
Just a little eye candy for y'all
You don't have to thank me :P
Hope you guys will keep watching an enjoying Descendant's of the Sun! And don't forget to send your love and support to all the actors that worked really hard on this!
