I have to admit there are a LOT of kpop songs that evoke a certain feeling in me of stretching out to reach someone or something — and they aren’t all from OSTs (just most of them). Come chat Kpop Songs of Longing with me!
Saltnpaper — “Satellite”
Ok, so I’m still in Chicago Typewriter mode — I swear it’ll pass eventually! In the meantime, I love how Saltnpaper’s “Satellite” perfectly captures the feeling of the ghostwriter wanting to be with his friends again.
BTS — “Spring Day”
Did you think I could really let even one kpop post pass without a BTS song? Granted, “Spring Day” is the epitome of a lonely-for-someone song.
Kim Kyung Hee — “And I’m Here”
Oh, this song kills me. It captures all the feeling of the sad love in Goblin and I adore it.
Taeyang — “Wake Me Up”
I think Taeyang is the King of Longing Songs. It was a difficult choice between “Wake Me Up”, “Let Go”, and “Eyes, Nose, Lips,” but I managed to decide. Eventually.
NU’EST W — “Let Me Out”
I love the irony of this song — it represents the Monkey King (Hwayugi) really, REALLY wanting to be let out of the unbreakable bond he has with Jin Seo Mi, but it almost sounds romantic.
Also, I thought I’d share an affiliate* link to the earbuds I use. They’re just a basic pair of Skullcandy earbuds, but I’ve had them for four years and they haven’t lost any sound quality and still fit perfectly in my ear. I take them everywhere and highly recommend them.
What about you, drama fans? What kpop songs tug at your heart strings? I’d love to know!
Until next time, I remain–
