The fifth track for tvN’s Wed-Thurs drama True Beauty is sung by Chani and will be released at 6 p.m. KST on the 14th. Chani previously made a special appearance in the show as Jeong Se Yeon, a top idol who is also Lee Su Ho (played by Cha Eun Woo) and Han Seo Jun (played by Hwang In Yeob)’s best friend. Chani demonstrates his various abilities as he also participated in the OST after acting in the drama.
Chani’s “Longing” (literal title) is a song with impressive guitar melodies and synth bells which corresponds with Chani’s warm vocals. In particular, the official release of the song was requested by the viewers and fans as the track was played in the last five episodes. It gained more attention as it was revealed as Se Yeon’s unreleased track on Su Ho’s playlist.
“Longing” is a slow song with retro elements added to the calm and delicate harmony of the chorus. The lyrics sing about the dreams as a sky and a star which can be seen from everywhere but can not be reached.
tvN’s True Beauty is a rom-com about the restoration of one’s self-esteem. It airs every Wednesday and Thursday at 10.30 p.m. KST.
Part 5 of True Beauty’s OST, Chani’s “Longing”, will be released on various music platforms at 6 p.m. KST on the upcoming 14th.
