Original score from the 2019 action series directed by Channing Huang and Chen Xu, starring Jessika Van, Po-Hung Lin and Lang Yu, produced by Yolk Entertainment and released by MiHeHua (China).
THE STORY: A university student gains superpowers and ends up needing to save the world.
THE SCORE: “To tell our story of a weak young man transforming into a strong heroic figure saving the world from alien invasion, the director and I
carefully planned our score progression from one story arc to another throughout the series. What unifies the score is a four note main theme heard in the main title. This theme set up the show’s alieness tone and represents our protagonist Jim and Yolk (together as Yolk Man). Together with my composer team (David Bertok, Tan Onwimon, Jetsada Hongcharoen and Satta Rojanagatanyoo), we took this four note theme and transformed it to fit different situations and emotions that Yolk Man have to face as the story progress. The first third of the score focuses on the lighter sci-fi, fresh young feel and comedic tone to show Jim’s ordinary life in the university, his love interest and a first meeting with Yolk. The next arc tells the story of our protagonist being hunted by the brutal aliens, thus the music tone shifts towards suspense and horror. The last part of the series deals with a fight between good and evil and the score then turns to heroic action and concludes with touching cues to accompany an emotional end to the story.” – Pantawit Kiangsiri
