I’m a list person. I have a list for every single thing in my life from a to-do list, a list of books that I want to read, a running shopping list, and in the next few weeks, I’ll be sharing different k-entertainment lists that I’ve been keeping track of. You’ll be seeing my top 5 lists of stuff like my current celebrity crushes, my favorite k-drama female protagonists, my favorite k-drama male protagonists, my to-be-watched k-dramas, and you know, stuff like that.
This week’s Wednesday Five will feature my Favorite OST Songs.
1. Sweet Night by V from BTS for Itaewon Class
This is one of my favorite songs, like, ever. Itaewon Class is my absolute favorite k-drama, it being my first drama probably has a lot to do with why but this song was such a huge part of why I loved it. I didn’t even know who V was when I watched this show and the one time that I heard it play during an episode, I immediately looked the song up on YT and played it over and over again. It’s such a sweet song and I just love it so stinkin’ much.
2. Every Second by Baekhyun from Record of Youth
Every time this song played on Record of Youth, I knew that I was about to ugly cry and it was true every single time. This song was my introduction to EXO. Being a BTS stan, I don’t listen to a lot of EXO stuff, at least I didn’t before hearing this song. Now, I know everyone’s names and I have a bias in their group though I don’t own any merch or anything like that. Baekhyun is my bias from EXO and this song is just one of my favorites from him. I also think I like this song more than I liked the show, Record of Youth.
3. Breath by Sam Kim from It’s Okay to Not Be Okay
This is another song that made me ugly cry every time it started playing on the show. It’s such an emotional song and pairs really well with the couple in It’s Okay to Not Be Okay. Sam Kim has such a beautiful singing voice and I listen to this song at least once a week even though I don’t ugly cry anymore. I love this song so much.
4. It’s Definitely You by Jin and V of BTS for Hwarang
Are you guys surprised that another BTS song made it onto my list? Can I be any more obvious that I’m a huge fan of their work? V is my bias and his singing voice melts me every time I hear it and pairing him with Seokjin brings together two beautiful voices that bring me so much joy. I love singing this song even though I never finished the drama. It’s just a damn good song.
5. Everytime by Chen and Punch from Descendants of the Sun
This was the first Korean song that I actually took the time to learn and I know this entire song by heart now. I wasn’t a huge fan of the show that this song is from but this song is too damn good and I just love singing along to it.
There are a lot of other songs that I absolutely love from all of the shows that I watch but these five songs are my top favorites.
