As much as tvN's 'Goblin' is one of the most talked about dramas, there seems to be a recent controversy lingering around one of the tracks for the OST. 


Singer Heize's  track "Round and Round" for the 'Goblin' OST has received a ton of negative feedback. Singer Han Soo Ji sings the beginning part of the song and because she isn't a well-known artist, it was marketed as just a Heize single with no mention of Han Soo Ji at all. Some fans also wanted Han Soo Ji to sing the whole song instead of Heize thinking that Han Soo Ji fits the song better without Heize. 


Heize has spoken up about the issue.  On January 25, the singer expressed her thoughts on SNS, "I am well aware that there has been a lot of talk going on concerning 'Goblin' OST.  I wanted to give formal feedback after things were straightened out. However, I feel I must share my side of the story."


She continued, "As you all know I have participated in the making of 'Round and Round,' which was extended to 3minutes and 30 seconds from the original 50 seconds by Han Soo Ji."  The singer firmly mentioned, "I never took it."  Heize said that she was requested to take part in the OST, in order to complete the full version of the original song.  "It appears when the official full version was released, it contained not only my voice but was mixed in with the one used in the drama...Thus, I became the main artist and the other artist's vocals was used as the pitch."


The singer then said she was waiting to hear more feedback from officials and apologized to fans about the confusion.

Han soo ji match the song because she sing that song first Heize doesn't do anything wrong

That didn't make much sense. So what she's saying is she thought she was asked to participate and recorded the song that only her voice would be released? That wouldn't make any sense cos in the drama they never used her cut so they can't just release her voice only and call it the OST. People shouldn't attack her she was simply requested to participate and accepted it. I find it unfair for Han Soo Ji that she was only listed under a feature. If it was Han Soo Ji feature Heize it would be better but still the song is strange how they cut it.

its cj's fault dont blame her for it, she was only doing her job

I think it's like New Republic's debut song. Since they weren't popular, they added Timberland at a feature in the song when all he sang was yeah.

how did heize get so popular?

Erisadesu 1llionaire Wednesday, January 25, 2017

thank you!! I had the same question, was her participation in unpretty rapstar enough? She even collaborated with DEAN...who is supporting her? I mean I do like her, but what kind of marketing they are using.

The OST producer just wants to use Heize's popularity. I was so surprise to see this track got 1.7 start ranking on melon. That's like the lowest I've ever seen.

owh ok...but i think we should just appreciate they make it longer than original...heize sounds good too...i love this song....

I really loved the beginning song of the track, i was caught off guard when I heard heize's voice come in through on later. I understand she was just doing her job but i can't avoid that I'm in love with han soo Ji's voice :3

I was thinking of actually purchasing the OST album, but I was so let down by this track that I'll just purchase individual tracks I like.
