[Song] Worthless (못났죠) - Siwon

The song "Worthless" (못났죠) featured here is the short version sang by SuJu's Choi Siwon in the K-drama "Oh! My Lady" (2010), the full version was originally sang by Jo Sung Wook.


Though Siwon is a member of the popular K-pop group Super Junior (SuJu), and undisputedly the handsomest in the group but he is not one of the main vocalist. He only gets to sing very few lines in each of their songs (but always memorable as he usually sings the first line in SuJu's songs that have accompanying MV), and all his solo performances during SuJu's Super Shows have always been English songs such as 'Who Am I", so it is quite nice to hear him sing solo in Korean, albeit only a short version. He sang it beautifully with emotions.

"Oh! My Lady" is Siwon's first foray into K-drama leading man role and he did a very good job in my opinion. Since then, he has starred in

  • K-drama "Athena: Goddess of War" (2010)
  • Taiwan drama "Skip Beat!" (2011) - as one of the two leading men, starring with his SuJu band mate Donghae, due to air in December 2011
  • K-drama "Poseidon" (2011) - started airing in Korea on 19th September 2011
and also SuJu has recently brought out their much anticipated fifth album "Mr. Simple". What a busy couple of years Siwon has been having, singing, acting plus modelling. 화이팅! Siwon, hope your career goes from strength to strength.

"Oh! My Lady" Synopsis

A spirited 35-year-old housewife, Yoon Gae Hwa, becomes the manager to a vain and trying 28-year-old top star Sung Min Woo (Siwon) in order to earn enough money to regain custody of her daughter from her ex-husband. Hilarity follows after the sudden appearance of Min Woo's illegitimate daughter, Ye Eun, when Min Woo and Gae Hwa find themselves in an awkward living situation as he pays her to look after Ye Eun in secrete. And there is a happy ending ...

The best video that I can find which contains the storyline and Siwon performing the song in the drama.
