I was listening to Winter Sonata’s theme song – From the Beginning Till Now – from my new K-drama music compilation CD (more on that next time) and my friend asked whether I was listening to a Bahasa Malaysia (BM is Malaysia’s national language) track.
I scoffed at him thinking he had a hearing problem and showed him my very Korean CD cover. “Korean song-lar,” I haughtily answered.
To which he replied: “You know, there’s a Malay version of that song. It’s called Sonata Musim Salju (direct translation: Winter’s Sonata!)”.
It is sung by Hazami. Watch the video below to see Hazami singing the BM version with Malaysia’s pop darling Siti Nurhaliza.
