Some viewers took issue with the fact that Han Soo Ji, who sang the opening for the tvN drama, was not the main vocalist in the song. Rather, Heize sang most of the track, while Han Soo Ji was credited as a featured artist. Heize responded to the criticism, and CJ E&M has now made an official statement on the matter.

The company stated, "Firstly, the full song was written by music director Nam Hye Seung before the series aired, and it was chosen as the drama's title song. For an opening with an impact, Han Soo Ji was chosen to record the first 50 seconds of the track, but Nam Hye Seung had another singer in mind for the rest of the song ever since he composed it."

CJ E&M further explained Heize was brought in to record the song after the first 50 seconds, and as there have been complaints, the company will consider releasing the 50-second opening by Han Soo Ji. The label concluded, "We sincerely apologize to both Han Soo Ji and Heize, who were confused during this process. We're also sorry for dissatisfying the viewers. Thank you."

What's the point of releasing the 50 second opening when people can just cut that part from the OST.

Alright after listen to the song over and over while studying physics...Heize's version really grows on you. I like this version a lot but I still want a han soo ji version. I want both! I'm greedy lol

The song have beautiful melody but the lyric is everywhere. wish they make korean version instead.

well I get how this happened now, and I think we all understand but please guys stop bitching at netz just because we complained, it was like watching a preview featuring an actor that you really like and when you see the full movie you get him killed on the first 5 minutes and another guy is the main character...

knetizens are the most tight-assed netizens in the world. get a life!

KP15 denn1sable Wednesday, January 25, 2017

no, even international fans are also complaining about it on youtube. They're not hating on Heize they just wanted the original singer full version because her voice suit the song better.

I know

denn1sable KP15 Thursday, January 26, 2017

then some international netizens are also tight-assed.

KP15 denn1sable Thursday, January 26, 2017

no they just have opinion. it's common. not everyone is saying bad things about Heize or saying her voice suck. They just wanted the original version,that's all.

denn1sable KP15 Thursday, January 26, 2017

i'm not defending anybody. i barely know who heize is. also, i consider everything said on akp as opinion. i meant people are getting upset over nothing.

Bottomline: The song's creator decides who makes the full song, and he wanted Heize, respect his decision & stop whining just cos you dont like it.

Maybe, instead of attacking right away, these netizens could have just respectfully asked them if they can do a version with only Han Soo Ji in it.  No need for all these BS temper tantrums.

People fell in with the part of the song that was the opening to the drama. I was shocked when it was credited to Heize and thought it was her that sang that beginning part that was used as the opening even though it didn't sound like her. It is very odd to have a different singer sing the rest of the song, especially because viewers had no clue Heize sang part of the song until recently. They should have just released the Han Soo Ji solo ver anyway because that's when viewers fell in love with. The version they released with Heize just sounds weird. Han Soo Ji's haunting vocals fit the song and the drama much better.

I think it's strange too first 50 second all by one singer then later add or mix in another singer. They could say it's the song is Han Soo Ji feature Heize. We didn't hear Heize's voice throughout the whole series they only used Han Soo Ji's cut so saying she was only the feature is the only part i'm not satisfy about.
