Purchase This Album

A 2 disc, 32-track album filled
with theme songs from hit Korean dramas between the time of 2004 and
2008 has finally been released for drama lovers to indulge and reminisce
to their favorite television shows. Listeners, fans and non-fans of
dramas alike can listen to top singers such as Bobby Kim, Tei, Brown
Eyed Girls, and Baek Ji Young as they take part in popular dramas
including Hong Gil Dong, What Happened In Bali, Money’s Warfare, and so
forth. The songs range from heart-wrenching ballads to rock-influenced
upbeat numbers.

Some of the songs I particularly enjoyed in Disc 1
were Taeyeon’s “If,” Bobby Kim’s “One Year is Like a Day,” and Je-A’s
“Song of Sorrow.” Most K-pop fans are probably aware of the first song,
because Taeyeon of pop group, SNSD sings this emotional ballad. She does
a great job expressing the feeling of new love. “One Year is Like a
Day” on the other hand is a medium-tempo track with an upbeat rhythm.
Once again, Bobby Kim does not fail to bring out his smooth vocals
almost effortlessly. I was quite lured to the style of this song, and I
think others will get a kick out of the melody as well. The last song in
the first half of the album I would recommend would be “Song of
Sorrow.” Sung by Je-A of pop group, Brown Eyed Girls, her vocals flow
well with the Korean-esque style that is supposed to fit the theme of
the historical drama, King and I. Through this song, listeners can get a
taste of the group’s previous musical styles.

I found a lot more
songs enjoyable in Disc 2, those including Lee Hyun Sup’s “My Love,”
Baek Ji Young’s “Bad Person,” and “Lee Ki Chan’s “Because It Hurts So
Much.” “My Love” is a typical drama theme song, very dramatic with lots
of feeling. However, the song caught my ear nonetheless. The hint of
guitar instrumentals seemed to play a role in the song, as it brought a
Spanish feel to it. “Bad Person,” track, 11 is from Hwang Jini, a tale
about one of Korea’s most renowned gisaengs. It is a very beautiful
ballad with violin accompaniment. The last song is I want to mention is
“Because It Hurts so Much.” Lee Ki Chan’s tender vocals are worth
listening to in this slow-tempo number.

In conclusion, I wish the
people who chose the songs in the album would have included a wider
variety of dramas; there were like five songs from the Hong Gil Dong
drama series alone. However, most of the songs in this compilation album
were worth listening for drama and music lovers alike. Those who want
to get introduced to Korean music can start off with this.
