Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings broke the record by introducing the first Asian hero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It also became the franchise's first Asian-led movie.

When the movie officially joined the Marvel Cinematic Universe last month, it introduced 18 songs as part of its official soundtrack. To the public's surprise, they saw several Koreans in the Sean Miyashiro and 88rising-produced album. The list included DPR Ian, DPR Live, BIBI, GOT7's Mark Tuan, and the newly-debuted Seori.

Following the film's success, the 24-year-old singer reflected on the once-in-a-lifetime chance she got after joining the Marvel film's OST.

"As a fan who has been loving the Marvel series, it means a lot to me. So I wanted to be a good part of the film with good music. I enjoyed the process and feel happy for being able to get closer to the film," she said.

The young singer also touched on the real meaning of the song, saying it gives further sense to the martial arts scenes in the film. She reportedly got the chance to work for the Marvel film after working with DAY6's eaJ where she was discovered by 88rising.

Seori's Journey Toward Music Industry

Though she surprised everyone with her ethereal voice in the Shang-Chi OST, Seori already shocked everyone with her debut EP ?depacse ohw in May 2020. Its music video reportedly caught K-pop fans' attention as they began wondering who she was.

Even before her debut, Seori had already established her small empire by beginning to write songs when she was 18. Since then, she started uploading cover videos on her YouTube channel and went viral. One of the videos, a video of her doing a cover of Abir's Tango, garnered 5 million views.

When an ATISPAUS staff was looking for a new artist who could be the face of the agency, they reportedly saw her videos and made her the first musician they promoted. Although she is a musician like anybody else, Seori noted that she differs from others by creating music from her inner thoughts.

Her English pronunciation also made her better than the rest, although she never lived overseas. This opened new doors for her that she is not in the US to join 88rising's Head in the clouds Festival in November.
