Kristel Fulgar will be singing the theme song of the upcoming Filipino-Korean web drama “Love From Home” in collaboration with Yohan Kim.
On her latest vlog, the “Goin’ Bulilit” alum shared that the song is called “Smile Again”, which she’s so excited about. She's also thrilled to be working with One Click TV and Yohan, whom she calls “Big Boss”.
“Siyempre for me it’s a pleasure to work with very talented Korean people and finally magkakaroon na ako ng original song ko na Korean at saka may ka-duet ako na napakagaling na singer,” said Kristel.
Being a fan, the actress knows how important an official soundtrack is to a K-drama, and to be singing one herself, feels surreal to her.
“Dati kino-cover ko lang yung mga Korean OST, ngayon nagkaroon ako ng original na OST ng isang web drama, so I’m so happy. Parang for me, it’s like a dream come true. ‘Pag nanonood ako ng mga Korean drama dun ako kinikilig. Bilang OST siya ng Fil-Korean web series, parang gusto kong iparamdam ‘yung ganung kilig sa tao. Ganun ginawa itong kantang ‘to,” she added.
Kristel revealed that the song is so kilig, that she couldn’t help but smile while recording it.
“Actually nung kinakanta ko ‘to, hindi ko rin mapigilan na hindi mag-smile kasi ‘yung lyrics niya very sweet, very calm,” she explained. “Galing din nung pagkaka-arrange nung composer nitong kanta na ’to.”
She also expressed her gratitude for Yohan, who’s also a CEO of a popular cosmetics brand, for making this collaboration happen.
“Siyempre hindi ko magagawa ’to kung hindi rin sa tulong ni [Big Boss]. Actually, siya ‘yung nakaisip na gumawa ng ganito. Siya yung nag-push ng kantang ito. Naisip niya why not pagawa siya ng kanta,” she said.
