I was going through my music collection the other day, and I realized that I had (way too) many “sad” songs. And that was when I thought up a self-challenge to choose the saddest of them all. When most people think of sad kpop music, songs about break ups from names like Brown Eyes, Park Hyo Shin, and Baek Ji Young come to mind. But I don’t think any can beat the following three in conveying the feeling of sadness in both the lyrics and the melody. Indeed, these three are what I consider to be the saddest songs ever made.
Kim Gwang Seok – “Too Painful of Love Wasn’t Love” (from The Classic OST)
Lee Yoon Soo – “Become Dust”
Yang Hee Eun – “About the Loneliness Called Love”
Now, your turn! Please share on what you consider to be the saddest song to you.
