Here’s the Queen of ballads, Baek Ji Young and her voice came back in the SBS “Jamyeonggo” (Princess Jamyeong) OST, “사랑이 죄인가요” (Love isn’t a crime). Some of us may know her from her hit single, “총맞은 것처럼” (Like being shot by a bullet), now she comes back strongly with her powerful vocal. (Although I think the song isn’t as strong and powerful as “총맞은 것처럼”, or maybe just because I don’t watch the drama – the feeling is just not there, yet.)
Baek Ji Young’s newest single tops the music charts only after one day release
Her single song, “Love isn’t a crime” was released on May 22, and by the end of the day, it tops all the music charts, such as Bugs music, Cyworld, Soribada Online, Mnet and other online charts. This song totally exploded only within a few hours, making her once again, the Queen of Ballads.
