-She was a girl who was loved by many men for its a simple and lyrical voice. Cho Ae-hee, the protagonist of the song, was called a Korean beauty in the 1960s. As soon as her song was released, she quickly became the No. 1 broadcast hit chart. Lifelong singer who became a KBS exclusive singer without a professional education. Singer Cho Ae-hee sang the era with her natural voice.

-My name is that the girl was loved by the whole country, especially the hearts of many men. It was an unrequited love. I remember this song was sung a lot when we were young. At that time, I was a fashion singer, so there was a time when I couldn't sing it. One of the songs that I sang at school, especially when it was fashionable for girls to carry a hand mirror.

"I graduated from high school and coudn't get a job. So my aunt's daughter who is so good at singing asked why do you try singing? So I was recruiting at a choir at KBS. So I thought I was at a choir again, and I turned around without any regrets.

-At that time, I was working as a station singer, and finally got a record. There is an anecdote that the author of this song was refused when he first proposed the song, Kim Yun-bae, who was the head of the Instrumental Music Center at the time."
