Actress Go Ara has ventured into music with the release of the digital single, “Now!” on January 9. The track, and its mini-album were a surprise release from the actress, going on sale on various music sites without prior notice.
The release of “Now!” is also in connection to Go Ara’s upcoming movie, “Papa.” Composed by the movie’s musical director, “Now!” combines modern rock and pop sounds. Go Ara sings the song entirely in English, since “Papa” is set mostly in the United States.
Along with “Now!” Go Ara’s mini-album includes the acoustic number “Little Girl Dreams” and a different arrangement of the title track, “Now! (Medium Ver.)”
Meanwhile, “Papa” tells the story of a manager who tries to get a budding female talent into a reality competition show in the United States. A strange family relationship forms when the manager marries a U.S. citizen to stay in the country legally and a young woman needs a legal guardian to keep her siblings together. “Papa” opens in cinemas on February 2.
