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 a part two of my favorite Korean Drama OSTs. You can catch part one right here. This week’s list features some more of my favorite songs from different Korean Drama OSTs.
1. Christmas Tree by V from Our Beloved Summer
V’s smooth voice singing this song never failed to get me in my feels when I was watching this drama. I already loved the show like, a lot but there was something hauntingly beautiful about this song that made my love for the show even bigger. It fit so well with the story from the drama and every time it came on, I knew that my ass was going to start ugly crying and I always did. This song is just…too stinkin’ good.
2. With You by Jimin & Ha Sung Woon from Our Blues
I watched this drama because of this song. The song didn’t debut on the show for a few episodes and at first, I wasn’t that invested in the drama but I kept watching because I knew that Jimin and Ha Sung Woon’s song was going to be on there. By the time the song dropped on the show, I was super invested in every single character on the show. I thought the song matched the storyline of the characters so well that the song strengthened my love for the show. As an ARMY, I’m heavy into the streaming part of my ARMY duties but because I love this song so much, it’s not a chore. Jimin and Sung Woon’s voices blend together so nicely and this song just freaking rocks.
3. Yours by Jin from Jirisan
I really like this song. It’s soft and Jin’s voice suits the song extremely well. Unlike the last song, no matter how much I like this one, it couldn’t save the drama for me. The drama was boring and I couldn’t connect with any of the characters so that was a bummer but this song? This song is still in regular rotation on my listening playlists on Spotify. I love it that much.
4. Start Over by Gaho from Itaewon Class
I love this song. Like, a lot. Every single time that this song comes on, I want to burn Jangga down all over again and this song makes me feel like I actually could. This song makes me so happy and super pumped to tackle the day. Gaho has such a great singing voice and a lot of my favorite Korean Drama songs are sung by Gaho and this song is at the very top of the list of Gaho songs that I love.
5. Stay with Me by CHANYEOL, and Punch from Goblin
One of the most memorable songs off the Goblin soundtrack is Beautiful and while I love that song, for me, it’s this song that I absolutely adore the most. It was one of the first Korean songs that I learned to sing by heart and it’s been a long, long time since I first heard this song but I still love it just as much now, as I did then. This is such a great song.
