The second half of my favourite OSTs –
DAEON – “Liar” This song gives me goosebumps. A badass track that served as the perfect red carpet for Mo Seok Hee in the Korean TV series – Graceful Family. My only problem with this OST is the length. How can it be only two minutes and twelve seconds long? I need more time for epicness.
Sa Ji – “Never Let You Go” This is such a beautiful and calming song. Definitely my favourite OST from the Chinese drama – Le Coup de Foudre. Also, the fact that it is entirely in English is a nice bonus. I LOVE … LOVE THIS SONG. Sa Ji’s voice really embodied every word that she sang.
Xiao Zhan & Wang Yibo – “Unrestrained” The elegant “Unrestrained’ from the Chinese TV series – The Untamed. I love it when actors sing the soundtracks for their drama. This was a great main track from Xiao Zhan and Wang Yibo. Listening to this song always makes me want to rewatch the series again.
Lee Hae-Ri – “Maybe” Lee Hae-Ri’s voice with the sweet chemistry from the leads of Her Private Life was a perfect combo. I remember waiting eagerly for TVN to release this particular soundtrack. Till the end of the series, it remained my top OST from the drama.
Ju Jingyi – “Passing Feelings” Ju Jingyi’s rendition of this song gives me chills. She sounds so trancelike. This is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful songs I have heard in my life. Listening to it puts me at peace. “Passing Feelings” is an original soundtrack for the Chinese drama – The Legend Of White Snake. I remember watching the version with Jet Li as the monk, but this new version is equally impressive.
Ju Jingyi – “A Millennium’s Wait For A Return” Another artistic delight from The Legend Of White Snake. Ju Jingyi proves herself not only as an actress but also as an exceptional singer. Her soft and smooth voice was a perfect choice for the OSTs. This also has a trancelike vibe, most notably when they sing the line – “alone waiting for a thousand years.”
Ju Jingyi – “Bai Suzhen under Mount Qingcheng” I live for the drums in this song. The instrumental is not so loud, but it still stands out. Yet another astounding soundtrack from The Legend Of White Snake. This drama definitely had one of the best soundtracks among Chinese dramas this year.
Samuel Seo – “Pain Or Death” Doctor John had a fantastic set of OSTs. “Pain & Death” is my favourite. This is also my first song from Samuel Seo, and I must say that he has a very compelling voice. The lyrics for this song hit really hard because it speaks about the one thing that all humans most experience – Death. But all the same, it was a very befitting soundtrack for the drama.
MINSEO – “Star” This was another emotional song from Doctor John. Honestly, even though this drama did not have a lot of romantic scenes between the leads, their chemistry was still undeniable. Anytime I listen to this particular soundtrack, I always remember all their sweet and comforting moments.
SALTNPAPER – “Look At” A very comforting song from the phenomenal SALTNPAPER. Whenever this OST came on, I knew it was going to be an emotional but yet hopeful scene. SALTNPAPER never fails to deliver intriguing OSTs. I first heard Satelite from Chicago Typewriter, and I have been hooked since then.
Sean Chen – “How are You These Days” Another OST I discovered without actually watching the drama. Fun fact: I just figured out the English title and artist while writing this post. I randomly found the OST album for the Chinese TV series – Hope All Is Well With Us on Spotify, so almost everything was in Chinese. But I can confidently state that every track from the series is fascinating.
Xu Jun – “Chasing” And last on my list is my ultimate song from Hope All Is Well With Us. I do not know much about the artist, but his voice really captured me. I have replayed this song a million times, and I even listen to the instrumental version. Honestly, I had no plans to watch the drama, but they did such an excellent job with the soundtracks, so I am quite tempted to see a few episodes.
That is all I have for this post. If there is an OST that you loved that did not make my list, please feel free to mention it in the comment section. Also, I have provided a synopsis for most of these dramas on some previous posts. So simply click on the tag for the specific show, and you will see all the related posts.
I hope you all continue to enjoy this holiday season.💓💓💓
