The Untamed Soundtrack

I think all of my fave drama soundtracks of past few years have been from Chinese period dramas. What I love about them is how well they function as scene enhacers and mood makers without being agressively in your face. Another thing I love about them is the copious use of traditional instruments. I’ve grown quite enamoured especially with the bamboo flute. It’s a really good instrument for expressing various kinds of emontions, especially the sad and evocative ones. Continue reading

Ever Night OST songs

I didn’t fall in love just with the cinematography of Ever Night but also with the soundtrack. Combined they probably make about one third of my enjoyement of the drama. *g* I would really, really love to get a full album… I wonder if it’s available somewhere. Here is a collection of OST songs I was able to find floating around YT. Enjoy!

Favourite Drama OSTs

I love music, always have. A good soundtrack can enhance a show’s appeal and when thoughtfully used, adds an extra layer to many of the scenes. Just as a bad one can throughly spoil the whole experience. We all know a drama or two with the bgm so grating that we’d like to strangle whoever made the musical choices. It may be just me, but the kdrama soundtracks of recent years have been kinda meh, filled with generic, syrupy ballads that fade from memory as soons as the drama has ended. Pretty much like the dramas themselves. Which is why most of my faves are from dramas from several years ago. Those OSTs were often themed to go with certain scenes or characters, which I personally love. The music pieces also seemed to be more varied in genre and sound.

I’ve been thinking about doing a post about some of my favorite drama soundtracks for a while now, but there never seemed to be a good time for it. So, I’ve been collecting the material to be used “some day”. Guess that day is now. 🙂 The “samples” are arranged in loose categories, just to keep them in some sort of order. Beware, it’s a loooong post!

Discovery of Love – the OST

Discovery of Love was one of the unexpected pleasures this year, love it. Complex characters and a thought provoking story – just up my alley.

DoL also has a wonderful OST and this post is all about that. I’ve added links to English lyrics when avalable, the rest of the viedos are either hardsubbed or have lyrics under the ‘show more’. No spoilers. Enjoy! 🙂

Yoo Na’s Street – the soundtrack

I could spend an entire day watching expressions change on Chang Man’s face. I think I’m in love with Lee Hee Joon’s acting, LOL! YNS re-watch is now at ep 15 and I’ve lost count of how many of the clips at JTBC YT account I’ve watched and rewatched. XD

Anyway, the reason of this post is the OST. I really like how different the soundtrack is. They’ve so far released only the two main tracks and the only gripe I have is that there should be more songs as these two are kinda getting overused. Not that it’s ‘almost paaaaaraaadise’ level of painful yet, ha.
