I am back to introduce a new song to you all. My chosen song for this week is “Someday or One day” by Shi Shi. It is the opening soundtrack for the Taiwanese drama Someday or One Day. This drama is currently airing and has only two episodes out. I’ll give more information on the series at the end of this post. So for now, let us focus on the music.
Sun Sheng Xi, popularly known as Shi Shi, is a Taiwanese-Korean singer-songwriter. She has been active since 2013 and is signed under Rock Records.
I was so pleased when I found out that she sang this song. I love her music, she is such a beautiful singer. I came across her when watching the Taiwanese series – Back to 1989 and ever since then, I have been following up with her releases. “Someday or One day” is available on Spotify and iTunes for download.
From the first time I heard this song play in the drama, I was intrigued. It has this solemn but promising feel to it. I could understand the lyrics, so it was even more touching. It is a perfect opening theme for the series. It tells the sadness of losing a loved one but also the hope of meeting them again someday. Shi Shi sounds incredible. I have mentioned this a few times on this blog, but I am going to repeat it – A guitar start for any song is always the right choice. And the way Shi Shi came in at the beginning with her soft voice was so good. It added to the soothing feeling of “Someday or One Day.” I also appreciate how the build-up towards the end was not too intense. The instrumental was still calm, but I could tell that the tempo went up a few scales.
I really love this song, so I had to share it with my readers. I hope you all enjoy listening to “Someday or One Day’ as much as I do.
Here is some information on the drama for anyone interested –
Sypnosis: The year is 2019. A 27-year-old woman named Huang Yu Xuan pines for the love of her life, her long-time boyfriend, Wang Quan Sheng. She continually checks his social media pages, hoping he will call her, asking to get back together. But one fateful night, Huang Yu Xuan gets hit by a car. She regains consciousness and sees a man she believes to be Wang Quan Sheng sitting by her hospital bedside. She thinks she has finally been reunited with her beloved Wang Quan Sheng! But there’s a huge twist. She is no longer a 27-year-old woman but is now a high school student named Chen Yan Ru. The year is now 1998. And the man by her bedside is not her boyfriend after all, but a schoolmate named Li Zi Wei. Trapped in what appears to be the past, living another person’s life, she eventually comes to realize that the traffic “accident” that landed Huang Yu Xuan in the hospital may not have been an accident after all. And Chen Yan Ru’s own reasons for being hospitalized are also shrouded in mystery.
All the while, Li Zi Wei finds himself strangely drawn to the woman who used to be Chen Yan Ru, even though he knows his closest friend Mo Jun Jie has had a crush on Chen Yan Ru for years… Can true love find a way to bridge a seemingly insurmountable time gap? And what really happened on the night when Huang Yu Xuan was hit by the car? (Source – Viki).
