When KDramas first came here in the Philippines, TV networks always tried to localize them as much as possible. More than the local names of characters and the tagalog dubbing, it also became an opportunity for our local music artists to feature their music and become part of the KDrama’s OST.
Along with the popularity of these dramas came the success of their OPM song OSTs that even people who didn’t watched the drama will probably recognized.
