IU to Provide Theme song For Animated Movie
The soloist IU will provide the vocals for the theme song for the upcoming animated film “Leafie, A Hen Into the Wild”.
It has been announced that soloist IU will be providing the theme song for the upcoming animated movie “‘Leafie, A Hen Into The Wild”, which chronicles the journey of a small hen stepping outside her comfort zone and into the big world.
Because a movie with such themes needs similarly inspirational and sensitive theme song, IU was chosen for the wide range of emotions she is able to express with such a powerful voice. In regards to their choice of IU, animation production company, Myung Film, expressed their confidence in the young idol, “If IU sings the movie OST, the movie’s theme will be expressed well.”
The theme song will utilize the refined and emotional sounds of a full-orchestra, and is composed by Lee Ji Soo, a well-known his musical works featured in movies such as “Old Boy” and “Sympathy for Lady Vengeance” amongst various other films OSTs. The lyrics for the theme song were written by Kim Lee Na, who also provided the lyrics for IU’s “Good Day” and “Nagging”, as well as various other tracks.
“Leafie” will be simultaneously released in Korea and China, and will feature the vocal talents of actors Moon So Ri and Yoo Seung Ho. On April 21, IU will be performing the movie OST together with a 15-member orchestra, during the production briefing at Kumho Art Hall in Seoul.
