Lord have mercy on my soul. It’s getting ripped out. Binnie singing? A song as soulfully romantic as “That Man”? I might as well just curl up and weep, especially seeing the utter and total pain train coming a mile away in Secret Garden. The patented Kim Eun Sook “you want angst, imma give you angst” giant hammer of (temporary) doom.
It always starts around episode 17, which was when City Hall kicked into overdrive and I had a hard time getting off the floor after watching those episodes. Back to SG, Hyun Bin’s version of “That Man” is very raw and unsophisticated (technically speaking), but my utter adoration of this man makes his singing voice like manna from the Gods.

Compare his version to the original by Baek Ji Young.

Yes, I’m still watching SG. No, I still don’t want to discuss it (yet).
