Kim Ye-rim shows talent, staying power

Singer Kim Ye-rim, also known as Rim Kim, has proven she is not just an instant pop star.

Her recently released song from her upcoming second mini album has been garnering a lot of attention after her first EP topped the local music charts last month.

“Rain,” which was released on Tuesday through local online music providers, instantly topped the charts and has remained high on the lists.

Kim also pitched lyrics for her song, whose lyrics and melody were mostly written by veteran singer Yoon Jong-shin.

Composer Lee Sang-soon, better known as singer Lee Hyo-ri’s fiancé, has also added his guitar playing to the song.

“The song is not so fast-paced, which has been popular in the local music scene, but many [people] are showing raving responses,” said her agency Mystic 89. “We think fans appreciate the fact that Kim produced a song that helps her unique voice stands out.”

Kim is scheduled to release her second mini album “Her Voice” next month.
