2015 Countdown #3: Best OST

Sometimes a good track is the only redeeming factor of the drama and that’s when we say “at least the music was good.” Sometimes the track is not as tolerable and will leave us thinking “not again” when it plays for the twentieth time in a pivotal moment. Original Soundtrack aka OST is not as important as the acting perhaps, but it is often the most memorable. Long after the lines and the plots have faded in our minds will we still remember the tunes that went along. We will hum it happily while doing our mundane chores and it will add a little pep to our steps when we hear our favorites at the most unexpected places.

2015 Countdown’s #3: Best OST is for all the music we heard in dramas this year!

2015 Countdown #4: Best Chemistry

Chemistry is something that can really make or break a drama. If co-stars have it, even the dullest of dramas can suddenly seem fun and enticing to watch.

Even though it’s not the easiest thing to define, you’ll know there’s some good chemistry or mojo going on when you see or feel it between two people. Maybe it’s just the natural flow they have with each other or perhaps the spark that just sets a drama on fire.

2015 Countdown’s #4: Best Chemistry is dedicated to all those pairs and couples that lit up our screens this past year!

This time we are bringing you a guest post by fishyflakes.  Though not at all a drama watcher (gasp!) he boasts a very eclectic taste in movies, including American political drama, sitcoms, animation, and horror. In terms of Asian media, he watches mainly action movies and anime, earning himself the title of the classic “boy” viewer (he said this, not us!). Now, will his most recent foray convince him to give more Asian films and dramas a shot, or will it turn him off for good? Let’s find out!
