Drama theme-song ringtones

Somehow the mention of ringtones came up on the last Open Thread, and I posted some ringtones that I’d made of You’re Beautiful OST songs. I got some requests, so I thought I’d put more up in a separate post, in case anyone else was interested.

(These are short mp3 clips that you can download onto your phone IF your phone is capable of mp3 ringtones. I know some phones have size limits for mp3s — mine is 500kb — and most of these clips are under 30 seconds and in the 200kb-400kb range. Download link at bottom.)

For example:

YOU’RE BEAUTIFUL

I’m sure most of you are familiar with this soundtrack so I don’t need to post clips, but I’ll put them up just in case:

Jang Geun-seok – “말도 없이” (Without Words)

Some of you expressed reservations about using ringtones that might be embarrassing to sound in public, so here are a few instrumental versions to spare you the mortification.

STRONGEST CHIL WOO

Some dramas barely left a blip on the radar but had some memorable tunes, like this one. I like this song so much that I made three different ringtones out of three different parts of the song. It’s Joseon Korea with a dash of Zorro/Americana thrown in as well. What’s not to love?

RETURN OF ILJIMAE

This drama’s soundtrack has some of the most beautiful instrumentals I’ve ever heard in a drama, particularly the plum-blossom theme song below.

I.S. (Infinite of Spring) – “Asian Flower.” This isn’t expressly from the soundtrack, but was used in an episode.

BOYS BEFORE FLOWERS

To be honest, I can’t quite see anyone using this ringtone without (1) a healthy dose of irony, and/or (2) shame, but I had to make it nonetheless!

The infamous “Paradise” by T-Max

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

 

STORY OF A MAN

This song still gives me a little thrill whenever I hear that crescendoing guitar riff. I actually use this as my alarm clock song in the mornings:

Story of a Man OST – “세상을 너에게” (The World To You)

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.



 

GOONG

Another drama with one of the best soundtracks around. Perhaps it shouldn’t be a surprise that the PD who did this series also did Return of Iljimae.

GOONG S

Unfortunately for Goong S‘s case, I think its soundtrack was better than its plot. 🙁

Second Moon – “구름같은 세상” (Cloudlike world)

Clazziquai – “Be My Love”

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

 

THE WORLD THEY LIVE IN

I don’t feel particular attachment to this drama, but I think it has a great, peppy theme song.

As One – “La la la… Love Song”

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

 

OTHER

And then, here are some other selections from some Korean indie and electronic bands I like. Sometimes you might not want a highly recognizable (or potentially embarrassing) ringtone to give you away in public, but maybe you want something a little different, something that other people might be intrigued by and/or envy you for. I think these do a good job:

Clazziquai – “Sweety”

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

Hourmelts – “Your World, My Nest, Vague Trust”

You are the bestest friend a k-drama addict could have! I like how you did the instrumental ones for samsooki :)

I used to have the SS501 "Because I'm stupid" introduction as my ringtone but the other half reset my iPhone and with it, my ring tone. Argh. Will need to re-do it.

Oh, I forgot to mention that FreeTempo "immaterial white" is my favourite pick me up song in the morning when going to work. It's a great work out song, no?

You can open .rar files on a Mac with programs like UnRarX or The Unarchiver. Try downloading those programs and you should be able to open the folder.

Do you read minds? Cos er, I'd sure feel embarassed even though most of the people I know would just frown, confused. Korean songs are not exactly popular here. Or known, for that matter. Actually, the Korean language is unknown to pretty much...uh everyone here? Sad truth

I've always wanted the actual ringtone of Hyun Bin's phone in MNIKSS. Any chance you can make that happen? I think I can figure out how to get the ringtone to work on my Treo but I'm not sure I have that same capability for the iPhone. Thanks for the uploads.

Javabeans, you spoil us! You spoil us rotten. It's getting to the point where I want to yell at my mom something along the lines of, "You are a lousy mother! Look how wonderful Javabeans is to her K-drama kids! Why can't you be more like her?" (it would be payback for all those years she yelled, "Look at your cousin XX! She is a model, doctor, lawyer, singer, mother, and wife! Why can't you be like her?)

THANK YOU FOR THE LOVELY RINGTONES. I love the Iljimae ones.

NONE FROM SOULMATE? THE DRAMA OF TEH AWSUM MUSIK?

The ringtone I have had since February of this year is BOF's "Because I am Stupid" by SS501. It is really beautiful -- and every single time people hear it, they ask about it or want it because it's so mellow and gentle (the opening sequence). It is somewhere on my computer, but if anyone wants it, I could mediafire it for you.

This is amazing. I think I'll probably wind up using "Paradise" as my alarm clock. The embarrassment and shame over having my roommate hear that play at 7 in the morning should jolt me awake better than caffeine. :p

Thank you for the ringtones. This whole YAB phenomenon has me thinking.
JB, If you put "you're beautiful" as the title for an entery outlining the determinental effects of ozone depletion on the planet, We will still flock to it and comment on how amazing the show is. LOL!
Even the craze that was coffee prince was not as big as this.
This is the best and the worst week of 2009. Never have I dreaded nor looked forward to something with such anxiety.
A public declaration:
I'm a YAB whore and damn proud of it. ;-)

Javabeans THANK YOU SOOOO MCUH!!!
I tried to add ringtones to my phone from my computer last year and after wasting weeks on it, I finally gave up. But after seeing the YB ringtones I knew I just HAD to put them on my phone. I went online and found this program that hacks my phone and puts ringtones on it, and it took like 15mins! Now I can put as many ringtones as I want in my phone.
Thank you soooooo much!!!

Javabeans, I find it amusing that you use the SOM guitar riff as your alarm clock b/c I do too! I'd made a cut of that a long time ago and now it wakes me up every morning. =) I also made a cut of one of the other SOM intros and use that as my ringtone. Don't remember the song though...
