The Kdrama, Castaway Diva, has a pretty good soundtrack. What's even more surprising is that the lead star actually sings in the series. Like her, who sings in Castaway Diva?
In this explainer guide, let's talk about the lead stars of the show and whether they can actually sing.
Let's start with the show's lead actress, Park Eun-bin as Seo Mok-ha. Does Park Eun-bin sing in real life? The answer is, yes, she can definitely belt out a tune.
The Extraordinary Attorney Woo actress actually sang the soundtrack of the legal Kdrama entitled The Blue Night of Jeju Island.
For Castaway Diva, Eun-bin had a role that supplied the voice of her idol, a washed-up singer called Yoon Ran-joo (played by Kim Hyo-jin). In reality, Eun-bin was actually singing the song.
Her list of songs for Castaway Diva includes the following:
This is actually Lee Re's song but Eun-bin sang it for the series.
This is the song Mok-ha sang backstage for her idol, Ran-joo.
This is another song that Mok-ha sang backstage for Ran-joo.
Open Your Eyes
This is Mok-ha's breakthrough song as she competed against Eun Mo-rae (played by Bae Gang-hee).
Night and Day
The original singer is Jung Seung-hwan but Eun-bin's version is so heartfelt.
With her talent, it surely does make you wonder who else sings in Castaway Diva. Fortunately, we did some more digging.
Kim Hyo-jin started her career as a model. After that, she made her acting debut in comedy shows. She also starred in a couple of theater plays called A Midsummer Night's Dream and Fool for Love.
Although she isn't a singer, Hyo-jin is credited for singing If Open Eyes, which was a track for the official soundtrack of A Dream Comes True movie. This was the second time she sang a song for a movie. The first was for the 2004 movie, Everybody Has Secrets.
For Castaway Diva, it's unsure whether it was her actual voice in the duet with Eun-bin, Here I Am.
Another Castaway Diva actor who can sing is Cha Hak-yeon, who plays Kang Woo-hak/Jung Chae-ho in the show. The actor is better known by his stage name, N.
As a singer, N made his debut in May 2012 as part of the boy band, VIXX. You can listen to him singing in this clip:
So far, these are the lead characters who answer our question, who sings in Castaway Diva. The other stars don't seem to be a singer so they likely lip-synced in the series.
We're looking forward to hearing Park Eun-bin's other songs for the series. In the meantime, do tell us which song from Castaway Diva is your favorite.
