‘SuperHero’ updated for film ‘Exit’

Aug 01,2019


A special version of singer Lee Seung-hwan’s hit song “SuperHero” was released in time for the premiere of local film “Exit” on Wednesday, according to Lee’s agency, Dream Factory.

The song, which was originally released in 2007, has remained a hit for 13 years and was included in the film’s soundtrack, playing during the main title sequence and at the end of the movie.

According to an insider at the agency, the popular song was included in “Exit” thanks to Lee’s and director Ryoo Seung-wan’s friendship. Ryoo’s wife, Kang Hye-jung, is the CEO of the film’s production company Filmmaker R&K.

After the singer learned what the film was about, he not only agreed to provide the song for free, but also re-recorded the 2007 song to create a special “Exit” version.

To connect the song with the film, the singer rearranged the bridge using the S O S signal in Morse code.

“Exit,” starring actors Cho Jung-seok and Lim Yoon-a, is an action-comedy movie about two young people’s struggle to survive in the aftermath of a poisonous gas attack by using the skills that they learned while members of their college alpine club.
