Two of South Korea’s most beloved “Nation’s Sisters,” IU and Kim Yuna, have teamed up for the theme song of SBS “Kiss and Cry.” The song titled “Frozen Flower” was recorded on June 8th in about an hour as the two worked in complete harmony. According to an official, Kim Yuna showed off vocal range as deep as professional singers, leaving a strong impression on the whole recording crew.

“Kim Yuna showed impressive vocal skills and musical sensibilities, so we were able to finish recording quicker than scheduled. She hopes this song will help boost the popularity of ‘Kiss and Cry,’” an official said.

The idea of a duet song was first brought up by IU at the recoding set of “Kiss and Cry” last month. After her first performance for the show, IU approached Kim Yuna, who was sitting as one of the judges, to suggest working together for the program’s main theme song, and Kim Yuna gladly accepted it saying she’s a huge fan of IU.

The production crew said “Frozen Flower” will be unveiled soon, perhaps during next week’s episode. SBS “Kiss and Cry” is figure skating reality show featuring 10 celebrities, including DBSK’s Yunho, f(x)’s Krystal, singers Son Dam Bi and IU. Kim Yuna is the main host, mentor, and judge of the show.
