MANILA — Here's an unexpected mashup: Kim Chiu's viral hit "Bawal Lumabas" and a track from the South Korean drama "Crash Landing On You" (CLOY).
They're an unlikely match, but thanks to the musical arrangement of TV host Robi Domingo, who also happens to be a talented pianist, the mashup works.
Domingo shared his latest piano rendition on Wednesday, combining the melody popularized by DJ Squammy — who is now Chiu's official collaborator in the full version of "Bawal Lumabas" — and a portion of "The Song for My Brother" from "CLOY."
In the series, the piano piece was composed by the lead character Ri Jeong Hyeok (Hyun Bin), and is dedicated to his late brother. It's prominently featured throughout "CLOY."
Domingo's mashup is just the latest of many iterations of Chiu's "Bawal Lumabas," whose music video has earned more than 10 million views in just three days.
Domingo's own Instagram video has garnered over 100,000 views as of writing, with hundreds of comments commending his musical talent.
