EXO-Ls are in for another treat as three of EXO‘s vocalists, Baekhyun, Chen and Xiumin lend their soothing voices for the upcoming SBS drama, Scarlet Heart: Ryeo.
In addition to the song, Baekhyun also plays a role in the drama as Prince Wang Hyun, a friendly and playful prince tenth in line to the throne. The drama is based on a Chinese novel, Bu Bu Jing Xin, by Tong Hua, a time traveling drama that sends the female heroine, Go Ha Jin (played by IU) back into the Goryeo Era. Her life changes when she meets the ten princes in a kingdom where the battle of politics and romance is heavily tested.
A music video for the Part 1 OST, “For You” was released, which shows highlight scenes from the drama and introduces the main characters to the viewers. The interactions between each prince and the female lead arouses curiosity as to which love-line might be focused on in the drama.
At 9am KST, “For You” topped Korean music chart Soribada at #1, while hitting the number two spot on Mnet, Olleh Music, Genie Music, Naver, and Bugs. The song ranks fourth on Melon. The song faces strong competition from Ailee‘s “If You”, but the results are applaudable since it is an OST track.
The first episode of Moon Lovers is scheduled to air on SBS on August 29, 2016 at 10pm KST.
