The original soundtrack album of Lee Isaac Chung’s film “Minari” (2020) was released on Tuesday, according to Sony Music Korea.
“Minari (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)” features 16 tracks including “Rain Song” sung by actor Han Ye-ri in the film, which was listed on the 2021 Academy Awards’ eligibility list for Best Original Song.
The film was scored by Los Angeles–based composer Emile Mosseri, whom director Chung praised as having “captured the film’s intention perfectly.”
