Ok, this post is totally unrelated to beauty or skincare stuff. I was just listening to some OST for Japanese Dramas of the 90s and early 00s and wanted to share some of my favourite songs with you guys. Way before the craze over Korean Pop (K-Pop) or Korean Dramas (K-Dramas), Japanese Pop Groups and Japanese Dramas were the flavour de rigeur. I grew up loving Takuya Kimura, Yutaka Takenouchi, Utada Hikaru and later KAT-TUN, Arashi, Kazuya Kamenashi (my dearest Kame!) and Tomohisa Yamashita (Love Yamapi!). Re-listening to their stuff recently takes me way back to my primary school years (7 years old to 12 years old) to my secondary school years (13 years old to 16 years old). Below I would like to share with you guys some of my favourite OST from the dramas which I’d watched a long time ago. Enjoy!
This very very iconic song is from Japan’s duo Chage & Aska for the Japanese Drama “Tokyo Cinderella Story”. It’s a beautiful song and I really love listening to it again and again.
This song is from my favourite drama “Long Vacation” starring the dreamy Takuya Kimura at the height of his popularity.
Back when I was 17 years old, everybody in my school knows this song “First Love” from Utada Hikaru!
It was fun going down memory lane by re-visiting all these classic Japanese songs that were iconic for those of us who grew up during the 90s and early 00s. I’ll like to share some of the other stuff which I like with you guys from time to time in between the usual skincare and beauty posts. Hope that you’ll enjoy them!
Thank you for reading!
