K-Drama Review: The Hymn of Death

Unlike most of the K-Dramas whose stories are fictional, ‘The Hymn of Death’ is based on true events of the past. This drama beautifully portrays the devastating love story between playwright Kim Woo-jin (also Kim U-jin) and soprano Yun Sim-deok. It has a total running time of approximately three hours in the form of 6 episodes which is quite short when compared to a regular K-Drama. ‘The Hymn of Death’ also known as the ‘Death Song’ is a romantic tragedy drama that beautifully depicts the painful yet realistic love story. The cast is meticulously chosen which consists of Lee Jong-suk as Kim Woo-jin and Shin Hye-sun as Yun Sim-deok.
