I couldn’t in good conscience include this song in my list because it came out today HOWEVER, I am positive it will end up being my most played boy group song next to Tempo therefore I have to post it.


I know this was a bit excessive of a list, but I can’t help it hahah! Maybe next year will be different. Until next time! 😉

  1. Day 6 is my most fav. Then I also lived Love scenario, heard balckpink’s dud du… Amd IU’s song. From osts I love 4 of my id gang am beauty and d day is aming them. Love your lists. Will save it checkout more songs. Thanks.

  2. I have such warm feelings towards Day6 and yes Love Scenario really is my favorite ikon song!! I was a little sad that not many kdramas in particular that I watched this year had that very lasting OST like others do you know! Thank you for always reading and commenting! ❤️❤️

  3. No problem.😘I like it when kdramas have posts that I recognize and search for it on YouTube and then keep in my playlists forever. I don’t never listen to full albums. So I am always on lookout for best ones.
