We have been focusing on the yuri aspect of this all this time but haven’t really gotten around to appreciating the other great things about this movie, like designs, cinematography or even the music!!! The music for this movie, dear Lord!
Okay Korea I am disappoint! Where is the soundtrack for this movie!?! Soundtracks are supposed to be released on the day the movie hits cinemas and The Handmaiden has ben out for two months already now and yet no CDs listed anywhere! What gives?!!
Thankfully the internet exists and where there is internet there is everything so of course we have some songs of the soundtrack either leaked or re-created by the hard-core fans of this movie.
I have gotten a chance to come across a few and I love them all so much. The favourite of course being the theme that plays during ‘The Escape’. This is titled ‘Teaser2’ and has another, clearer variation in ‘Teaser4’. It is so soothing to the point of reducing me to tears. it caresses my very soul! I love it so much.
The next is the one you have probably heard in that official video by Gain and Min-seo. Actually if play-count was the basis of favourite this song would be my favourite because the play count on both my phone and PC amounts in the hundreds already. Once I play it I can’t help rewinding right away. it is just soo good!!
Where is my full soundtrack South Korea?!! I want it!! I want to listen to the other great tracks in this movie. Come on, do it! This is already looking to take over Whispering Corridors 4 ~ Voice Letter’s OST as my favourite yuri Soundtrack.
