REINA RELEASES DEBUT EP
For her debut EP "A Flower Bookmark,' Reina remakes hit songs from past decades and updates them for a modern-day audience. The lead single "My Old Story" is a new take on the '80s hit by veteran singer Tan Yeebu and Lee Ji Hoon himself.
In comparison to the original (listen to it below), the keeps the track's original melody and instead updates production elements like the instrumentation (having the song take on a classical vibe with an unexpected accordion break added) and vocal style (Tan's reverberated croons are replaced with Reina's sugary, hushed tones). The accompanying music video also keeps the original theme of confused love intact. Reina sings that she is still waiting her lover, despite his past mistakes, while her heartbroken paramour, played by Lee Ji-Hoon, weeps while listening to her voice over the radio.
