The year is coming to a close and I’ve watched some excellent dramas with some excellent soundtracks. As a way to take us all the way to the end I’ve listed my favourite OSTs from 2018.
As always, let me whether you agree or if I’m missing any.
10. Cherry Blossom Love by Chen | 100 Days my Prince
The soundtrack is as magical as 100 Days my Prince, particularly the beginning, takes you back to the Joseon Dynasty.
9. Always You by leeSA | A Korean Odyssey (Hwayugi)
Like A Korean Odyssey is similar to Goblin: the Great and Lonely, this soundtrack is eerily similar to Stay With Me by CHANYEOL. Do you agree?
8. Love Virus by Kihyun (MONSTA X, SEOLA (WJSN) | What’s Wrong with Secretary Kim
This is happy/upbeat soundtrack perfectly encapsulates the tempo of What’s Wrong with Secretary Kim and is the type of song I would play while making dinner 🙂
7. I’ll Be Fine by Suran | A Korean Odyssey (Hwayugi)
This is another sad number from A Korean Odyssey. Very sad but very moving.
6. Becoming the Wind by Hyunsang Ha | Mr Sunshine
The Mr Sunshine soundtrack was probably my favourite thing about the drama. This track was poignant and is perfect for when you are feeling a little sombre (with my favourite bit at 3:06 mins).
5. Mr Chu by Apink | My ID is Gangnam Beauty
This track also features in What’s Wrong with Secretary Kim and is the cutesy dance number ❤️
4. AND I by NU’EST W | Mr Sunshine
Although this was another muted track from Mr Sunshine, it sightly differed (to the other OSTs) as it left me feeling hopeful rather down.
3. New Face by Psy |My ID is Gangnam Beauty
I have to admit that I only enjoyed this song after watching Kang Mi-rae rock her moves in Episode 1 💃🏽. After that though, I was hooked!
2. Sori by Lee Suhyun | Mr Sunshine
This delicately sung track incredibly beautifully encapsulated the essence of Mr Sunshine.
1. Epiphany by BTS | My ID is Gangnam Beauty
My #1 track is by none other than BTS. Although I did not actually hear it being played while watching the drama, it is part of the OST My ID is Gangnam Beauty on spotify and that was good enough for me!
