Guardian the Lonely and The Great God, also known as Goblin, is a widely known and appreciated drama of all time, and its soundtrack is as good as the whole series. 

I personally believe that in Goblin being a hit, its soundtrack has potentially played one of the major roles.

The whole track is so beautifully made from start to finish, and I suppose it is iconic. Each of its songs is dreamy and matches perfectly with the drama scenes. 

Also, with such amazing singers, the track undoubtedly had to be amazing. Take, for instance, Stay With Me singer Chan Yeol, who is a band member of the popular K-pop group Exo. The album had to be amazing. 

The songs from the drama series have been rated high on a number of Korean music charts. 

Adding to that, a few have even won several accolades from some major award shows. Trust me; this whole album is going to tug your heartstrings.

Lastly, on the list, but let’s just say not the least is the drama, It’s Okay, That’s Love. It is one of those drama series that has done a beyond the excellent job in adding the music at the apt places throughout as the story develops.

I really like how this song has also got a critical appreciation for raising the often not discussed issue of stigma and discrimination in numerous societies, which is that of mental health.  

While the drama has done an exceptional job, the tracks have added definition to what the characters are really going through. It helps you feel a bit connected to the drama while providing emotional depth to the story.
