7 best K-Dramas OSTs you should never miss

One of the best things about K-dramas is their OSTs. Here are 7 best K-Drama OSTs that you should never miss if you are a true fan of them.

1. EXO’s Chanyeol ft. Punch – “Stay With Me” –  from “Goblin”

Just hearing the very first few notes of this song is enough to make you reminisce Goblin’s best scenes. The song by one of Korea’s OST queens, PUNCH, and EXO member Chanyeol is the first song in the drama’s soundtrack to reach a million downloads—with its music video racking up a million views within 24 hours of its release! “Stay With Me” has become quite iconic for fans of the series after it was used on some of Kim Shin and Eun Tak’s most pivotal scenes (e.g. their first kiss).

2. Gaho – “Start Over” from “Itaewon Class”

Gaho’s “Start” is the representative song of the drama, which currently ranks the highest. “Start” talks about the overall story in the drama of the characters overcoming any adversity with a positive mind. So naturally, the song blends well with any scene of Itaewon Class.

3. SHINee – “Stand By Me”  from “Boys Over Flowers”

This beautiful rendition by SHINee takes us on a journey of coming to terms with one’s feelings. The quintet sings about taking a loved one’s hand and guiding them to chase away the shyness and learn about the concept of love.

4. EXO’s Chen ft. Punch – “Everytime” –  from “Descendants of the Sun”

Chen pairs up with Punch in this duet as they both mesmerize us with their harmonizing voices. The lyrics reflect the beauty of falling in love and only having eyes for one’s significant other, as well as wishing to keep them safe and close at all times.

5. gugudan’s Kim Sejeong – “If Only” – from “The Legend of the Blue Sea”

Kim Sejeong’s sweet voice is perfect in this song about having someone whose existence heavily impacts one’s life. This song might make you think about taking a step forward and starting a relationship that commemorates the moments that were before and those that will come later on.

6. Kim Min Seung – “From Now On” –  from “Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo”

Though underrated, Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo has some of the best songs among K-dramas that recently aired. Each song on its soundtrack does a good job in inspiring the innocent kind of love between two friends-turned-lovers. “From Now On” especially nails this down when it was used on some of Joon Hyung and Bok Joo’s she-loves-me-she-loves-me-not scenes.

7. BTS V and Jin –  “Even If I Die, It’s You” from Hwarang

BTS members V and Jin lend their vocals to one of the best theme songs of Hwarang, The Poet Warrior Youth. “Even If I Die, It’s You” has a unique beat that doesn’t make the song sound too melodramatic and old-school (the plot is based from the ancient Silla Kingdom of Korea) while still capturing the interesting theme of the drama. Fun fact: V also played the role of one of the Hwarangs in the story!
