From “My Sassy Girl” to “Scent”
On July 28 the producer of “Scent” made an important announcement. The Korean version of the theme song “The sound of your coming” will be sung by Park Si Hoo. They have invited the songwriter of that megahit “I believe” (from “My Sassy Girl”), Kim Hyung Seok, to write the music and lyrics. The song will express the heartfelt feelings of the Male God which will produce a “lingering scent”.
Even if the whole world is against me: “The sound of your coming” reveals Male God’s feelings
“Scent” is scheduled for release on August 15, and both industry insiders and the Chinese media are full of expectations. [ED: We all know the story very well, so we'll skip the translation here.] Park Si Hoo who has not been singing for two years is not only the male lead but also sings the theme song in Korean. The producer Guo Li Jun said this has always been Park Si Hoo’s wish. Park Si Hoo’s singing has always been considered not inferior to professional singers, and his singing the theme songs for his very popular dramas “The Princess’s Man” and “Prosecutor Princess” has won praise in the industry. [ED: PSH never sung the theme songs for TPM or PP, not on the OST, anyway. The only time he sang the TPM theme song "Again, today I love you" in public was at the TPM Fan Meeting in Tokyo in September 2012. His "For you" was included in the Japanese OST of PP only, not in the Korean.]
In this theme song Park Si Hoo reveals the feelings of a man in love: “Passing one another feels so embarrassing / always miss your beauty in dreams / your appearance makes the whole world slow down / it cannot be replaced.” The scenario of long-distance love, something that defies geography, is also expressed in the lyrics: “Even if our love is divided by the sea, the waves will bring you to me.” The remarkable thing is: Park Si Hoo whose career once hit rock bottom seems to be here expressing his own dream: “Even if the whole world is against me, I won’t give up. I’ll be here, waiting for the sound of your coming.”

It is reported that Park Si Hoo personally invited the famous Korean music producer and composer Kim Hyung Seok to create the theme song “The sound of your coming”. Anyone who hears the song will grasp the “lingering scent” feeling. Kim Hyung Seok is now Korea’s most respected music producer and his masterpiece is the theme song “I believe” from “My sassy girl”. As a “golden” producer, he has produced albums for many famous Korean singers and groups.
At the invitation of Park Si Hoo, Kim Hyung Seok watched the rough cut version of “Scent” in advance. Although the movie had not completed post-production, Kim Hyung Seok was deeply moved by the transnational love in the movie which strongly inspired him to create this song for Park Si Hoo in “Scent” – “The sound of your coming”.aaaa
