For today’s playlist, there really isn’t a theme that ties all these tracks together, except for the fact that they are topping the charts. Whether they are indie artists or mainstream badasses, they are today’s artists who are making some of the most creative, influential music in K-Pop today.
Early last year, I featured music from Heart to Heart. The music supervisor on that show was Tearliner and again at the start of the new year, I’m featuring his music from Cheese in the Trap. He’s one of the biggest reasons why I decided to give his drama a try. I realized that I have a bias when it comes to drama titles that are odd or cheesy. No pun intended. However, after watching the first two episodes of this drama, I immediately fell in love with its quirky, awkward funny and bittersweet tones of the drama.
And in a way, that’s exactly how I would describe Tearliner’s music and selection of music. If you’re not familiar with Tearliner (aka Park Sung Hoon), check out last year’s post to get a sense of the drama’s he’s worked on over the years.
