Soundtracks for the Good Times

Aside from the writing, acting and directing, music sound plays such an important role to the success of the drama. Over the years, I’ve noticed Korean drama soundtracks have been improving drastically. As a Korean drama lover, I would like to honor the work done so I sorted through the songs I’ve been in love this year and come up with a fun chart. I’m a sucker of the Korean original CDs, let me tell you that of all the CDs in my hands this year, Warrior Baek Dong Soo’s has surpassed my expectation with great recording quality, of 2 CDs, all songs were superbly written, gotta be my album of the year.

As we are saying goodbye to 2011, let’s look back to some of the drama soundtracks that once we listen to it, might bring back good old memories. I’ve read/heard somewhere that  Korean drama was praised for its unique soundtrack – music that tells story.  Songs are ordered from like to love to really love.
