1. “Honestly” and “Potion” – Eric Nam

2. “Maybe Spring” – Yoo Seonho
There is something about Seonho’s voice that gives off a refreshing and cute vibe. Combined with the cheerful piano instrumentals, you will find youself singing along in no time!
3. “Think Too Much” – Changmin Lee
If you think that this song is a heartbreaking, mellow ballad, you are wrong. In fact, the acoustic-centric track talks about the singer’s personal struggles against the expectations set by those around him.
4. “Destiny” – Heo Young Saeng (SS501) (feat. Mad Clown)
“Destiny” adopts a more calmer R&B approach to its melody. And Mad Clown’s rap parts help build up to that approach.
5. “Yet” – Drunken Tiger
Drunken Tiger never disappoints, right? The track talks about Drunken Tiger’s struggle in the music industry, and somehow encourages the audiences to reflect on their own struggles.
6. “Missed Connections” – DK (Seventeen)
If you have been looking for heartbreaking ballads, this is one. The OST of popular K-Drama Tempted talks about one’s regret of not confessing his feelings. He initially hesitates, because confessing exposes him to the consequence of breaking their relationship. But at the same time, regrets not doing so. Sure, this kind of thing happens a lot.
