    • 5.1 Lost without KDrama

      It always feels special when there are songs with a post. Having a post with a whole selection is like Christmas! Thanks to you and GF I was able to survive 4 weeks on the road without access to drama videos by reading recaps here at DB and listening to songs.

  6. xiaoSxin

    Where is the Standing Egg song? (the album cover is included in your post…) Can i recommend their song “사랑한다는말” perfect for spring!!!

  46. 46 mary

    Did you miss that lesson in grade school where they told us there are ONLY 24 hours in a day???

    Or is there some time-space warp thing you’re not sharing with us?

    Because in between recapping 49 days and Best Love and 1N2D and just being ozam in general, I’m not sure how you and GF pull it off… (Wait till Lie To Me comes out)

  70. 70 Wicked Ahjumma

    I love it all-thank you for sharing. Needs some new tunes to listen to while I just chill. These are perfect.

  71. 71 Janny

    I’d so put this whole playlist on my mobile right now and listen to it…BUT… *looks at thermometer*…it’s 30 ° C (86 ° F) in the shadows right now. (And it barely gets any hotter over here in Germany in the actual summer, for those of you who are wondering. Maximum is at about 40°C (104° F) overe, and that alone is reaaaallly reaaaally rare xD) And I feel like going to the pool but I have to study.
    So…this feels like summer actually, not spring. >__< I mean, I love summer, but I love sprign too, and there's still so much time left for summer to come, but in fact, it's already here. XDD

  72. 72 ezra

    I love K-indie. *O* && Ibadi and Urban Zakapa <3 Very relaxing. Thanks for the playlist! You should try Swing Chair, too ^^

  73. 73 pongs
