“Hymn Of Death” with Lee JongSuk and Shin HyeSun is one of the most awaited dramas of the end of the year. It just started to broadcast its first episode on Tuesday 27th and it caught the attention of Korean and international viewers.
The drama will have in total six episodes (3 episodes on a 70 min format). It tells the love story of Korea’s first soprano Yun SimDeok and genius playwright Kim WooJin. It is not a light romantic love story but a tragic one!
The sad and tragic atmosphere of the drama could be felt from the first minutes of the drama.
The opening starts at night on a boat. An employee of the cruise boat was doing his night round. When he entered an empty cabin where a song was playing with no one inside.
In the room, the pictures of the main characters were on display, expensive items were left on the desk, and a luggage had a note "I am terribly sorry, but please send my luggage back home".
This is when the employee seems to have understood that it was a suicide note. After running on the boat deck, he saw 2 pairs of shoes without their owners (one female and one male shoe) and started to look for them in the water.
This is the very start of the drama and many viewers were already hooked by the sadness and the tragic love relationship. Because it is most probably a hint of the death and suicide of SimDeok and Kim WooJin couple.
