Unforgettable original sound tracks (OST) and Korean dramas are practically inseparable. These songs are an essential part of the overall viewing experience, helping us connect with the characters and their emotions. From moving ballads to upbeat tracks, these are our favourite K-drama music.

1. “Because I’m Stupid” by SS501

This song was basically the anthem for the drama Boys Over Flowers.

2. “Love Is” by Park Jang Hyun & Park Hyun Gyu

This was Cha Eun-sang and Kim Tan’s song in The Heirs.

?You are my destinyyyyyy? Who gets vivid flashbacks of the fantastic chemistry between Do Min Joon and Cheon Song Yi whenever this song plays? Beautiful song from You From Another Star.

4. “Paradise” by T Max

Everytime we heard this song, it reminded us of Boys Over Flowers and vice versa. As cheesy as it was, we still loved it.

Another song from Boys Over Flowers. This song makes you want to rip your heart out and is oddly catchy at the same time.

16. “Nothing” by Just

This is the best song off the Lie to Me OST, because this song belongs only to Ki Joon and Ah Jung. It explains their love story.
