The Wednesday Five: OST’s That I Love

Posted November 9, 2022 by Rowena in Features | 0 Comments

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.

What are some of your favorite OST songs?

The Weekly Recap (182)

Posted November 7, 2022 by Rowena in Features | 0 Comments

This year was my first Halloween here in Vegas. I moved here after Halloween in 2020 and then I was in L.A. last Halloween saying bye to my nephews that were leaving on their missions. So it was the first year that I prepared to have my very own Halloween at home. I went to the store, stocked up on candy, and I turned my porch light on and stayed near the front door so I didn’t miss any kids and this is how I looked the entire freaking night…


Not one damn kid was out trick or treating and not one damn person came to my damn door. NOT ONE. I got ZERO trick-or-treaters. ZERO!!!! Who the hell is gonna eat all of this candy? Sigh. anyway, I’m back on my regular schedule and because it’s getting cold out here, I don’t want to do shit but watch k-dramas and drink hot drinks. It’s soup season so I’m looking forward to eating a whole lot of soups.

Now, let’s get into all of the things that I did last week…

What I Watched

The Policeman’s Lineage | 3 out of 5
Soundtrack #1 | 4 out of 5
Double Patty | 3.5 out of 5
The Bros | 3.5 out of 5

I watched a lot of movies this week and while I liked them, I didn’t LOVE any of them. Oh well. I also re-watched Soundtrack #1 again and really enjoyed that one. I just wish it was longer. Still, Park Hyung Shik is fine as shit and it’s always nice to remember that.

Bad Prosecutor: This is that show. I am loving every little thing about this show. The suspense portion of it, D.O’s acting, and all of the action. Every week, this show just keeps getting better and better and this week wasn’t an exception. This one is so good.

Blind: This show ended this week and it was wild ride from beginning to end. The plot twists were twisting and I was here for it all. All the way up until the end, I had no clue where the story was leading us but that ending? Yeah, that ending was great.

Curtain Call: This is the newest drama to my weekly line up and the first two episodes were a little slow moving but I’m curious enough about where this show takes us that I’ll continue on for the time being. It’s good to see Kang Ha Neul in a new drama though so there’s that.

Gaus Electronics: This show was so damn good and I was sad to say goodbye to it. This cast of characters had me cracking up (out loud) every single week. This show was the right amount of cute, interesting, and silly to catch and keep my attention and I’m going to miss all of these guys.

Love in Contract: Holy cow this drama is so good! I am in love with Jung Ji Ho. He is the perfect imperfect boyfriend and I adore him to pieces. I am also LOVING Kang Hae Jin. Everything that he’s doing to turn his family business around is making me happy swoon all over the place. I can’t wait to see how this show wraps up. It’s been a fun ride.
