* added instrumental version
The MV of Taeyeon’s OST track was released a few days ago, but the official audio and instrumental versions have just been released earlier today. Coincidently, today is also the day of the SBS drama’s, ‘Athena: Goddess of War’ ‘s, first broadcast.
According to Nate, Mtstarnews, and Fanwonder, “I Love You” was composed by the well known composer and lyricist, Ahn Youngmin –the same person who also composed Taeyeon’s and The One’s duet, “Like A Star”.
On his minihompy, Ahn Youngmin praises Taeyeon for her singing ability and how she is able to put her emotions into the song. He writes,
“This is the second time I work with Taeyeon and it’s amazing to see that she handled the song really well. I was worried that the song might be too matured for her but when she started singing, my tears started to fall”.
With her participation in the SBS drama’s, ‘Athena: Goddess of War’s, OST, she has now sang OST solos for all 3 of Korea’s main broadcast channels.
KBS – If <Hong Gil Dong>
MBC – Can You Hear Me <Beethoven Virus>
SBS – I Love You <Athena>
(list excludes ‘It’s Love’ OST Track from MBC Drama, Heading To The Ground, since it was a duet track with Sunny)

Can I say that this was so expected from Taeyeon? :] Her solo tracks are always amazing. I’m glad that ‘I Love You’ is already topping music charts when it was just released today. Please remember to support ‘I Love You’ and ‘Athena: Goddess of War’, especially the former. Hopefully, we get to see Taeyeon sing the track live soon.
(…and now I shall put ‘I Love You’ on replay and go back to studying for my finals x])
