Seventeen 'Is It Still Beautiful': DK, Woozi and Seungkwan drop dreamy 'Hospital Playlist 2' OST
The K-pop group Seventeen has some of the most enchanting vocals in the industry. They're perfect for the soulful ballads that make up most of the OSTs (original soundtrack) for K-dramas. And several productions know this. In fact, quite recently, members DK, Woozi and Seungkwan were roped in for an OST for the popular sequel 'Hospital Playlist 2'. Right at its peak, the show has viewers engrossed to the point that even the OSTs seem to chart.
The K-drama has had OSTs sung by the likes of TWICE, Joy of Red Velvet, Wheein of Mamamoo and Kyuhyun of Super Junior. A melodramatic show set in a hospital and its employees, the K-drama revolves around the lives of these characters as they struggle with their work, family and love. And 'Is It Still Beautiful' seems to be set on those lines.

DK, Woozi and Seungkwan's OST
The beautiful OST was sung and recorded by Seventeen's DK, Woozi and Seungkwan. They're all part of the vocal sub-unit of the group. The track was released on August 13 at 12 pm KST (August 12 at 11 pm ET). The OST is available on all major music streaming platforms like Spotify, Apple Music and MelOn and more. A music video for the track is set to be released next week.
But Carats already knew about the OST way before its release thanks to the members themselves. On August 8, Seventeen held their annual fan meeting 'Seventeen in Caratland' online. They had several fun segments where they performed their recent releases, swapped music parts and did skits. They also sat down to just chat with their fans and talk about what they've been up to. It was then that Woozi accidentally spilled the beans on the upcoming OST.
Woozi spoils the release
Woozi brought up an incident and stated that the three of them had almost wrapped up recording the OST but DK had made them stay back longer. Since he's a perfectionist, he wanted to re-record the part where he sings "hae". When Woozi realized that he had spoiled the OST, he whispered it to Seungkwan who started laughing. Later, on the Weverse platform, where fans and idols can interact, Wonwoo teased DK for his "hae" part once more.
'Is It Still Beautiful' is a heartbreaking ballad about a breakup. The lyrics talk of missing and reminiscing about an ex,wondering if the ex is still as beautiful as they'd last seen them. The song was initially sung by Toy in 1999. But Seventeen's remake is more mournful with a retro arrangement.

Fans loved the OST as they took to Twitter to support it with posts like, "This part is so so pretty ): seungkwan’s voice is so heartbreakingly sweet “but you know, as i fill a blank sheet of paper with your name, when i call you and hear your voice, tears fall before i know it” and "Seungkwan, dk and woozi's heavenly vocals so beautiful @pledis_17." Another Carat brought back the moment Woozi had spoiled the song, "Seungkwan & Woozi's reaction after wz spoiled about their OST!"
