Song: Run To You by Lucy OST Part 1

“When I was lost and wandering
In that unknown place
When I felt so alone
And was waiting for someone

There was another person, who resembled me and also lost
I coincidentally met you
In that moment, my sleeping sky
Opened its eyes to your star

Right now, run to you
To where you are, I’m running
Yes, I need you
Since the day I met you, you are my everything

Standing at the end of a meaningless day
I used to hope tomorrow wouldn’t come
In that moment, in my world
Your dream shined a light…”

(English lyrics and album cover source: Popgasa)
(Official video source: 1theK (원더케이) on YouTube)

Song: Ride Or Die by Kei (Lovelyz) 

& Jooheon (Monsta X) OST Part 2

“When the nights without me feel too long
Come find me again
I’ll stand on the path you take
And wait for you
Oh, if you ever call my name
Even if time stops
I’m by your side, ride or die…

If I can always be with you
I don’t want anything else
I can think endlessly but
You’re the only one…

Even if I lose my all
I only need you
Wherever you are
Take me with you
Oh, if you ever call my name
Even when darkness comes
I’m by your side, ride or die…”

(English lyrics and album cover source: Popgasa)
(Official video source: 1theK (원더케이) on YouTube)

Song: My Light by 

Baek Ji Young OST Part 4

“On this night when darkness falls, I can’t see ahead
So I don’t know where to go
The whole world grows silent
So even the passing wind makes me scared

I see a faint light
Maybe it was waiting for me
I hope my footsteps reach you

I will find you, my light, my light
So I won’t get lost anymore, moonlight, starlight
Please be my light
If I follow the twinkling stars and keep waiting
It feels like you’ll be at the end of this road, my light

On a night without a single star and the moon has also hidden
I looked at the empty sky and started to cry
Is the sky alone just like me?
Is it raining just like I’m shedding tears?
I see a faint light
Maybe it was waiting for me
I hope my footsteps reach you…”

(English lyrics and album cover source: Popgasa)
(Official video source: 1theK (원더케이) on YouTube)

Song: Sorry by 2F (Shin Yong Jae & Kim Won Joo) OST Part 6

“The spilling summer heat
Our nights when we couldn’t be apart
I remember it

Our fluttering hearts
Grow bigger as the seasons go

The reason I could endure through long days
If you feel the same as me

I’m sorry
There are so many happy moments
That I’m filled with you
To the point where I can’t handle it
I’m sorry but I need to love you right now

I’m filled with you endlessly
When I feel happy because of you
I don’t know why but I get nervous

I try to go with the flow but
You’ve grown so big in my life
Is this love?”

(English lyrics and album cover source: Popgasa)
(Official video source: 1theK (원더케이) on YouTube)

Song: Where Are You by 

Kim Na Young OST Part 8 

“I think I was afraid of everything
I always looked back like a habit
Even though I tried looking forward and running ahead
I couldn’t have love

I’m hoping to go back
To those days, to when we used to be together

When I look back
We were so happy, just looking at each other
Where are you?
Where are you right now?

Love is better when you give
But I only received

I’m hoping to go back
To those days, to when we used to be together…”

(English lyrics and album cover source: Popgasa)
(Official video source: 1theK (원더케이) on YouTube)

Song: Falling by Yuju (GFRIEND) OST Part 10

“My days have changed after I met you                                         I’m filled with your scent I don’t know when
But you came to my heart without anyone knowing

Ever since the first moment I saw you, I was falling
Deeper into my heart, I’m falling
My one and only love in the world, I’m going to you
Little by little, slowly, for you, I’m falling

I’m falling, for you, I’m falling

You came to me like a coincidence and then held my hand
I’ve waited for such a long time
When I smile, you smile with me
When I struggle, you quietly became my strength…”

(English lyrics and album cover source: Popgasa)

Song: Is It Me? by Baekhyun OST Part 1 

“However the wind blows, however my feet lead me
Without rest, I can keep walking
So please be somewhere

Even on that day with the sun shining all-day
My eyes never got blinded without you
I don’t think I can go on without you
Because no matter what kind of day it is, I long for you without rest

Is it me? The one person who lives in your heart
The one person who you endlessly long for
Even if you deny it, even if you say you hate me
I’ll be by your side like fate

Even on that day with the sun shining all-day
My eyes never got blinded without you
I don’t think I can go on without you
Because no matter what kind of day it is, I long for you without rest…”

(English lyrics and album cover source: Popgasa)
(Official video source:1theK (원더케이) on YouTube)

Song: Always Be With You by Solar (MAMAMOO)

“Can you see my heart for you?
Like destiny, I can’t leave you
I’m still this way, can you hold me?
I’m waiting, only for you

I am you and you were me
I love you, I love you, my one and only
Like the passing wind, I hope we don’t just pass by
I’m right here

Do you know? Your look toward me
Is shining like the stars that I can’t reach
If only you could open your eyes and realize I’m here
I’m only remembering you

I am you and you were me
I love you, I love you, my one and only
Like the passing wind, I hope we don’t just pass by
I’m right here…”

(English lyrics and album cover source: Popgasa)
(Official video source:1theK (원더케이) on YouTube)

Song: When Your Tears Wet My Eyes by Ailee OST Part 4

“I prayed so earnestly when we were wandering in the dark
The moonlight that was covered by the clouds is shining on us

Even when tears that are heart-wrenchingly painful cover my sight
I cannot hold your hands for your own good

When your tears drench my tears
Like a miracle, the whole world starts to shine

Our earnest love hurt so much
I don’t want to let go anymore, I want to protect you by your side

This world is filled with your scent
The only one in my heart is you

When the gentle breeze brushes our cheeks
We lock eyes and I enter your embrace

The mysterious and unplanned times
And the pain, forget them all…”

(English lyrics and album cover source: Popgasa)
(Official video source:1theK (원더케이) on YouTube)

Song: As It Was a Lie by Punch OST Part 5

“The look in your eyes
Will live in mine as a red light
When tears fall again with a smile
I think of our difficult fate

All the flowers in the world will wither again
And lose its light
When despair comes
Like a lie, I’m waiting for my love once again

Just like summer coming after spring passes
The painful memories will be forgotten
Just like when we first met
Again today, my love is beautiful

Some day, everything will start over again
When that time comes, as if nothing happened
Your love will come, so I’m waiting for my love once again…”

(English lyrics and album cover source: Popgasa)

Song: Breaking Dawn 

by Ailee OST Part 1

“It’s about to fall off, it’s dangerous
I’m sorry, tears are falling, yeah
Darkness falls and disappears
Into the frozen time

They’ll disappear without a trace
Why can’t I stop, my last favor

I’m breaking down, breaking down
Darkness shines
I’m breaking down, living in the memories
Inside my memory

It’s our fate, destiny, like destiny
You’ve pressed on me coldly, yeah

I’m falling deeper into this red darkness
Empty life, my last favor…”

(English lyrics and photo source: Popgasa and Twitter)
(Official video source: MUSIC&NEW 뮤직앤뉴 on YouTube)

Song: Love Sight by TXT OST Part 2

“When I see you, there’s something I have to tell you
When I see you, I think of one person

When I first saw you that one day
Like the sunshine, like destiny, you looked at me
That one person on that beautiful day

When I see you, even on fall nights with the dark moonlight
Countless stars shine so clearly

This is a dream-like love, do you still not know?
You always change me
I’m happy because of you
I miss you even more today

When I see you, I keep laughing
When I see you, my heart flutters

I was covered by the clouds
But you look at me with your heart, love so sweet
So beautiful, I can feel it

When I see you, the feelings in my frozen heart
Start to blossom into beautiful flowers like the warm spring…”

(English lyrics and photo source: Popgasa)
(Official video source: MUSIC&NEW 뮤직앤뉴 on YouTube)

Song: U by Baekhyun OST Part 3

“I still with you, I’m still here
Do you remember the day we first met?
I am still with you, again today, like this
When I look at you, all-time stops

When I close my eyes
It feels like I’m walking through a dream

You, don’t forget
Remain as a memory that’s enough for me
You, now I will tell you, love you, love you
I only need you alone

I am still with you, all the dark days of the past
They’ve all changed as if it’s destiny
I am still with you, I hope it’ll be forever
I can’t stop anymore but I can’t say anything

At the end of this road
Will I be able to hold your hand?
..

You, You
Wherever, Whenever
Because it’s only you.”

(English lyrics and photo source: Popgasa)
(Official video source: MUSIC&NEW 뮤직앤뉴 on YouTube)

Song: All Of My Love 

by Davichi OST Part 5

“You never wither
You shine even more in the darkness
In my cold heart, in my tired day
You’re the love that passed through eternity
I won’t regret it
Don’t be nervous
Even if the end is decided for this path

All of My Love
You’re my one and only
The one who held my hand when I was standing at the edge of a cliff
All of My Love
All the times that were like a miracle
It’s so precious, please remember, even if they all wither

In this world where I didn’t have a single place to lean on
I felt like I was walking alone, so lonely
I was about to get sad but I smiled at the thought of you
Because it felt like you would come
I was so resentful
Asking, why only me?
I couldn’t do anything…”

(English lyrics and photo source: Popgasa)
(Official video source: MUSIC&NEW 뮤직앤뉴 on YouTube)

Song: Distant Fate by

 Seo In Guk OST Part 7

“When the starlight in the night sky was so thick
You happened to be there too
I want to do everything with you
I wish times spent with you would pass more slowly

At the end of the day, I felt sadness for the first time
Even my heart that fell asleep while waiting

In the faraway days
The seasons that we’ll live through, facing each other
Things that scatter and things that build-up
In those things, we will bloom and fall asleep again

I’ll put in the warmth of the crumbling sunshine and this breeze
Into our times…”

(English lyrics and photo source: Popgasa and Twitter)

Song: Crush On by Lu Si Ying

“In the shadow of the sunshine

Never enter my mind

Like a dream, you come light up my life

Watching the night and shooting stars

With your eyes figure out the miracle together

Oh, in the journey to the sunrise sea

I wanna stay there forever

Oh, heavy rainfall suddenly

In the magic city

 

Hey, falling in the sky you make me free

Walking to the days not fade away

Every word you say leads me to love you

Hey, backing to the day we made a wish

No matter how and where I’ll be by your side

From the beginning to end…”

I see the light

I see the hope

I see the love

I see the night

I see the love

I see them all

 

I see you

And believe it’s you

The sun for the morning

And I must be for you

See you

You know I miss you

Please don’t leave me far…”

“Girl I remember

When I laid my eyes on you
made me surrender oh
you kept me up all night long
promised I’ll treat you right
but I didn’t know how
Girl, I remember oh
the times that you said you were mine

Baby you, I still love you
Baby you, I’m still with you
I’m in the cold girl I hold you close
oh where do I go from now
Baby you, I’m still with you
with you…

Tell me when you’re on the road
can you stop on the way
If I’m only someone you just pass by
just remember
I’m looking for you
my love

Baby you, I still love you
Baby you, I’m still with you
I’m in the cold girl I hold you close
oh where do I go from now
Baby you, I’m still with you

Baby you, I still love you
with you.”
