This past week, my friend Isabella from Throne of Pages roped me into watching a new K-Drama called Because This is Your First Life, and it reignited my love for K-Dramas and brought me back to the days when I would marathon episode after episode. ✨
I’ve been relistening to some K-Drama OSTs that I used to love, and today, I wanted to share them with you! 💖
Stand by Me by SHINee (Boys Over Flowers)
I think we can all agree that Boys Over Flowers was the blueprint for K-Dramas, and listening to this OST always brings back the feels. ☀️😭 Even though I hated Go Jun Pyo’s hair and preferred the side couple, I still look at this drama fondly.
Will You Kiss Me by G.NA (Playful Kiss)
Playful Kiss was the first K-Drama I got really into, and it makes me so sad because I don’t know too many people who also loved it! I love the high school and college vibes and that we got to watch the characters grow, but I also ~loved~ the sunshine x grumpy trope too. 🥺❤️
All For You by Jeong Eun Ji & Seo In Guk (Reply 1997)
I actually watched this drama more recently in the past year, but the second that I heard this OST, I fell in love with it. It has such nice longing?? and springtime vibes. The childhood-friends-to-lovers trope also stole my heart! 😍
Dream High (Dream High)
Dream High was another ICONIC K-Drama that many people watched and loved. I loved that we got to see so many idols make an appearance, and something about this song in particular and the flash mob scene makes me feel hopeful. 🌟
Dreaming by Kim Soo Hyun (Dream High)
Yes, Dream High is making a second appearance on this list because this was the drama that made me swoon over Kim Soo Hyun. ☁️ I loved his character on the show, and I also the melody and lyrics of this OST.
As Ever Still by A.N. Jell (You’re Beautiful)
When I tell you that I loved this song, I mean I loved this song. 🎵 It was my ringtone on my first phone, and you can just feel the vibes of love and longing?? *whispers* i love it.
Yearning Heart by A’ST1 (Boys Over Flowers)
And because Boys Over Flowers is so iconic, it gets a second song on this list. I was honestly tempted to add two more, but this is me practicing self-control. 💖 I would describe the vibes of this song as wishful and cozy~
