The gal who did the original has a screechy-sounding voice that gets on my nerves.

    Nope. She herself actually sang it.

    P.S. See the other videos I posted by others in the cast. They all are talented musically, as well as actors / actresses.

    There was considerable talent displayed in that K-drama. Plus keep in mind too that they had to also focus on acting within a script while performing the music, unlike those who could focus solely on performing music alone. That Korean girl was an awesome actress as well as very good musically.

    See the other videos I posted below as well.

    I used to HATE this song because because I couldn't take the singer. This is much better.

    She's too good. Four Non Blondes who did it first sounded alot more raw which gave it more ass.

    Yeah, that's what I was saying. But some folks seem to latch onto the first versions of songs "sentimentally," preventing them from even entertaining the notion that a subsequent version beats it hands down. :)~

    It's a "little" different. It's like Marley's "I shot the sheriff" when it was done by Clapton as opposed to his original. many times artists don't make a salable cut when they do it themselves, but when it's redone, it takes off.
    I think a good example of that would be "Stay" when it was redone by Jackson Browne. That not only is done well, but it tells a story about the life of a musician.

    The K-drama musical performances were masterfully done simultaneously as music PLUS acting. All Browne had to do was focus on singing. But imagine how much more difficult it is to do that plus give an acting performance within the script of a story.

    See, for example [from the same K-drama], how this 19 year old Korean male singer delivered a song starting out "shy" and tentative, then blossom into a full-blown performance:

    Sure, that's a better version than the original, but then again, almost every version is better than the original.

    The Korean girl reminds me of Chrissie Hynde of the Pretenders.

    The gal singing that song was great as an actress in that K-drama as well. I'll put her up against ANY female actress in Hollywood.
