About the Concert
The Korean wave sweeps to Esplanade in February for two special evenings of songs and instrumental pieces from soundtracks of some of the most popular Korean drama series written by composer, arranger and lyricist, Joon-Sung Oh.
Considered one of Korea’s most sought-after composer/lyricist, Joon-Sung Oh, will direct his 9-piece band, Green Cacao and a local string ensemble specially put together for the concert. Composer / arranger Joon-Sung Oh has been in the screen, drama and music industry for more than 20 years. As a successful drama music composer he has played an instrumental role in creating more sensation with music scores for My Girl, King and I and Boys Before Flowers. More than that, he has worked with local and world famous star musicians such as Yuki Kuramoto (Japanese Pianist), Sumi Jo (Korean Soprano), David Garrett (American Violinist) for some of these dramas. His recent release of Hip-Hop style music Look up the Sky in MBC TV drama, Manddang Heading is, once again, getting high attention of the drama viewers.
Some of these songs will be accompanied by music videos from the dramas.
Joining them will be Korean popstars Bobby Kim, Mario and SHINee, who will perform their signature tunes from the dramas, Dream, My Girl and Boys Before Flowers respectively.
It is time to relive fond memories of these dramas. Complementing heart-wrenching, humourous and happy-ending storylines, the music of Joon-Sung Oh will tug and touch your hearts. If you are ardent fans of these endearing and internationally renowned drama series or would like to listen to some of the most beautiful music to be written, these performances are not to be missed!
