This is what heaven sounds like.
We all love a good K-drama—one with an extraordinary plot, impressive characters, and superb cinematography. But what makes a good K-drama the best is when it’s accompanied by an official soundtrack (OST) that will let you reminisce that one absorbing scene you just can’t forget.
The most remarkable OSTs we know come from equally remarkable K-dramas, and are recorded by stars who are known in the K-pop scene. Check out our list of K-drama OSTs sung by some of your favorite K-pop idols that you’ll be adding to your playlist in no time:
- Goodbye – Hyolyn for My Love From The Star
Starting off with a K-drama classic, female soloist and former Sistar member Hyolyn shares her vocals to the iconic My Love From The Star, starred by Kim Soo Hyun and Jun Ji Hyun. This track shows how painful leaving is, which will eventually make you weep as you remember Do Min Joon bidding goodbye to Cheon Song Yi.
- Stand By Me – SHINee for Boys Over Flowers
Flawlessly matching the hit K-drama Boys Over Flower is the hit OST Stand By Me, that every fangirl is sure to have a fond memory attached to it. SHINee softly serenades with their angelic voices, and we can’t help but realize today how they are forever making us smile.
- Best Luck – Chen for It’s Okay, That’s Love
Dubbed as the “King of OST”, EXO’s Chen proves why luck is on his side in this outstanding number for It’s Okay, That’s Love, which featured fellow EXO member, D.O. Watch out for Chen’s effortless high notes that serve as the highlight of this song.
- Stay With Me – Chanyeol ft. Punch for Goblin
The EXO members are indeed on a roll—this time with Chanyeol collaborating with Punch for the parallel universe-themed K-drama, Goblin. Listen to this after a rainy day, while you’re off doing some daydreaming on the side. We promise this song will stay with you for a long, long time.
- Double Trouble Couple – MAMAMOO for Strong Woman Do Bong Soon
Be amazed by the distinct vocals of Hwasa, Solar, Wheein, and Moonbyul that form the powerful girl group, MAMAMOO in Double Trouble Couple—a fitting song for the K-drama’s theme, which will make you sway your head to its addictive beat.
- It’s You – Henry for While You Were Sleeping
We can’t imagine anyone nailing this song other than Henry himself. The singer-songwriter and former Super Junior-M member makes everyone weak in the knees with his soulful voice and is perfect to listen to while you cry yourself to sleep (after watching the drama).
- Sweet Night – Taehyung for Itaewon Class
BTS’ V shares his vocal skills in his self-composed track for Itaewon Class, which is led by his close friend Park Seo Joon. Sweet Night recently broke records for having the most No. 1s on the iTunes chart in 105 countries, making the OST much sweeter than it already is.
- Good To Be With You – Soyou for When The Camellia Blooms
Nothing beats a ballad sung by Soyou—her voice just seems to lead everyone in an emotional roller coaster. The former Sistar member and now solo singer gives vocal justice to the award-winning K-drama When The Camellia Blooms, and it’s good to know everyone believes she deserves an award for this OST, too.
- I love you, I remember you – IOI for Scarlet Heart: Ryeo
Hear us when we say: you will love and remember this song the way you did for the heart-wrenching ending of Scarlet Heart: Ryeo. This track also reminds us why IOI is one of the best girl groups out there (and wish we still have).
- See The Stars – Red Velvet for Hotel Del Luna
The sky is full of stars, and so is Hotel Del Luna, with versatile girl group Red Velvet singing for the whimsical K-drama. Anyone will surely sing-along to this song, add it to their playlist and listen to it all day long.
- Feeling – April for Extraordinary You
The perfect accompaniment for the well-loved webtoon drama, this OST is refreshing and light and makes for the feeling of summer. April member Lee Naeun is also a part of Extraordinary You, where she portrays the lead character Yeo Joo Da.
- In Your Time – Lee Suhyun for It’s Okay To Not Be Okay
Akdong Musician’s Lee Suhyun brings us in a bittersweet embrace with her smooth vocals as we sing “Forevermore, I cry”. The talented singer is no stranger to OSTs—she also recorded a number for Scarlet Heart-Ryeo alongside her brother, Lee Chan Hyuk.
