Since I started reviewing dramas back in May 2012, this has been one of the most requested videos that I’ve never attempted to make. Why you might ask? Well, for starters we cannot put the actual OST music in a YouTube video. Copyright law is strict on YouTube, and I want to keep making videos for you guys. It was hard for me at first to visualize how a video about music could be made with any of the music I would be talking about.


Fast forward to the end of 2014, and I’ve waited long enough. There’s such great music this year in Korea dramas that I really wanted to talk about and make this video. You guyz can then look it up on your own and heck, I recommend that you do! Some of this music is every bit as good if not better than some Kpop music out there, and music can actually really make a drama sometimes.

For example, just listening to the music of my number 1 choice It’s Okay That’s Love, I want to go back and watch the drama again. I don’t have time to re-watch the drama, but if I did I would. Without a doubt. And if I wasn’t trying to stay abreast of all the new dramas for you guyz, I probably would.

I think the coolest thing about music, and in turn dramas is that they remind us of certain events and bring us back to specific times in our life. They remind us of feelings we had the in the past and emotions we once felt. Even music that doesn’t have any words, like classical music that you may find in Naildo Cantabile or Empress Ki (I like that soundtrack also, it just didn’t make it into the Top 5), it sets the tone for what’s to come and how much we may even enjoy the drama.

    There are several OST’s that have great songs, maybe one or two for the whole drama but for OST’s where most or all of the songs are excellent It’s Okay That’s Love is the best out there right now. My favorites from the past are Coffee Prince and Secret Garden. I still listen to those often.

    I’m a HUGE Queen fan…so while watching It’s Okay, That’s Love I kept hearing “You’re My Best Friend”. BUT IT WASN’T BY QUEEN!!!

    The lyrics to the song are so appropriate to the characters…not just the two leads! It gave me the warm and fuzzies!

    You’re My Best Friend – The Once

    You keep posting…I’ll keep watching!!!

    Perhaps the most cohesive, beautifully eclectic OSTs I’ve found belong to “My Lovely Samsoon” (Elvis AND the Stones!) and “Me Too, Flower,” although “It’s Okay, That’s Love” comes very close. The alt-pop of “Lie To Me” is definitely worth a mention, along with the 50’s TV feel of the music from “Scent of a Woman” and the comic brilliance of song choices in “Protect The Boss.”

    However, what impressed me the most of any original soundtrack was that of “Pasta.” Just a handful of pieces were actually used, one of them the Scotts folk song “The Minstrel Boy.” What made the soundtrack so brilliant is that they had a composer working on multiple arrangements of these same songs to fit every scene and mood in a truly nuanced, seamless manner. It’s a study of making the most out of very little, and the only frustrating thing about it is that the CD doesn’t carry all of those different arrangements.
