Korean versions of “The Little Mermaid” OSTs take off the veil
Disney’s live-action musical film “The Little Mermaid” is attracting attention by releasing Korean versions of all OSTs.
“The Little Mermaid” (directed by Rob Marshall, imported and distributed by Walt Disney Company Korea) follows mermaid princess Ariel (Halle Bailey) who makes a deal with a treacherous sea witch Ursula to trade her voice to human legs in order to impress Prince Eric (Jonah Hauer-King), who is saved from a shipwreck, before the time runs out. Following the release of the English version of all original OSTs on May 19th, Korean versions of all OSTs were released on May 23rd.
Attention is drawn to the Korean version of 12 OST songs with different charms. In particular, the Korean version of “Part of Your World” is a song that contains Ariel’s desperate desire to get out of the sea and move to the human world. NewJeans Danielle delivers deep emotions with her delicate voice.
Jung Sang Hoon, a multi-talented person with singing, acting and variety show skills, takes charge of “Under the Sea” and presents a different charm from the original song.
Veteran musical actor Jung Young Joo, who boasts a high synchronization with the character Ursula, offers a glimpse of the scene where Ursula proposes a dangerous deal to Ariel through “Poor Unfortunate Souls”.
Besides, 3 new songs that did not exist in the original work can be enjoyed in the Korean version. There are also Korean versions of “For the First Time”, which expresses Ariel’s excitement and fear after moving to the human world, Prince Eric’s solo song “Wild Uncharted Waters” and the upbeat rap-style song “The Scuttlebutt”.
“The Little Mermaid” is expected to captivate everyone with the combination of diverse music and enchanting visuals. It will be released in Korean theaters on May 24th.
