This seems like a cool next project for Lee Jong Seok and one without too much time commitment. Lee Jong Seok has signed on for a 2-episode SBS drama called Hymn of Death (or Praise of Death) based on the dramatic real life of Korea’s first soprano singer Yun Sim Deok. She was born in the late Joseon era and studied abroad in Japan at the Tokyo Music School, recording her most famous song called Hymn of Death. She fell in love with a talented Korean writer named Kim Yoo Jin while both were in Tokyo but he had a wife and child back in Korea. On a ship heading back to Korea, the two jumped overboard and drowned, marking a theatrical end to their tragic love affair. Her life story has been adapted into two Korean movies over the years as well as stage performances, and this upcoming 2-episode drama will be directed by the PD of While You Were Sleeping.
