When it comes to growing up with Disney movies, no one is an exception — not even if your one of Korea’s most sought out models or leading ladies. Yes, not even if your Lee Sung Kyung. And she has apparently proved this by posting her cover on the famous song from Aladdin that took the whole world singing to it. Yes, you’ve guessed it! It’s A Whole New World which was originally sung by American singer and Broadway actor Brad Kane (Aladdin) and Filipino Broadway diva Lea Salonga (Princess Jasmine) for the original animated classic.
Lee Sung Kyung sang it with such elegance and beauty that it was no wonder that Lea Salonga, Princess Jasmine herself took time to notice, praise, and post it on her Instagram account.
Upon having posted it, the fangirl in Lee Sung Kyung couldn’t keep still. She commented on the Broadway diva’s post, telling her how much of an inspiration she was to her and how happy she is to know that she likes her cover. Lea replied to this comment, noting that she loves Lee Sung Kyung’s dramas and is a fan of the star herself.
Honestly, this is crazy. There couldn’t be a more sweeter interaction in the history of show business. This is like some sort of crossover we never asked for but have anyway and it’s lovely. We’re looking forward to more interactions with the two (who knows, we might even get a picture). But until then, we’re going to have to wait and smile like a fool as we take in this beautiful moment between such great icons in the entertainment industry.
