Music List: Encounter

December 20, 2018
Music List for the Korean Drama Encounter (aka Boyfriend)

Music list for the Korean drama Encounter (aka Boyfriend). Herein are all the OSTs for the drama; the background music list is mostly community based, so if you hear a song that you want then leave a comment with the episode, time, and a little description of what was happening (ex. Episode 2, 05:23, when that guy tripped and fell into the coffee shop and there was a time warp to the 80’s where a song played on a girl’s walkman across the street, what song was that?).

We used to find all the BGMs, but we ran out of time to find them all ourselves, so hopefully if someone knows the song then they will reply in the comments. Let’s help each other out!

    There’s a song by Saltnpaper entitled Take Me Into Your Arms for Part 5 (released in YouTube as a teaser for now) but I’ve heard it played in Episode 8 already.
    And I can hear onscreen (heard it in a couple of episodes, I think the first time was in the scene at Sokcho Beach where they were playing in the sand, have to check) an upbeat song that sounds suspiciously like Park BoGum sang it. The chorus goes something like “waiting for love, waiting for love.” Been waiting for publicity handlers to reveal it. Same thing happened in Love in the Moonlight, where PBG’s song My Person was played in earlier episodes but was only included or revealed at Part 11.
    Sorry. I’m really PBG’s fan so I really find his voice distinct when he’s singing. 😂
    Btw, these songs are also out on Spotify, including the instrumental versions.

        Ooh it’s up on YouTube already and sadly, I was mistaken. It’s not PBG but O.When and the title of the song is “Flutter” – Part 5!

            I wonder who sang the female version of Saltnpaper’s song? My mistake.. It was played in the earlier episodes too. I had a dramathon of all episodes during the break.

    Did they play Don Moen’s “Vincent” in ep 9? I haven’t watched but read the comment on soompi forum.

    Also, at the lobby scene when JH outted himself and in Ep 9 when SH found JH at the lighthouse, the background music is a very nice piano and volin version of Parchebel’s Canon in D.

      I sincerely hope PBG’s version will be included in the OST. The original version sounds like slow rock. PBG’s version sounds like a ballad. Probably because of his sweet voice.

    Can someone help me find the cuban/tango music background used on one of the episode 15 preview/snippets? When JH was working on submitting his resignation letter but change his mind instead and went off to the CEO’s office. Thanks you! 🙂

      Hi, J
      Your question has been niggling at me for awhile, and I finally got around to trying to find it. That whole scene moves through about 4 different songs:
      Begins with Before I Met You while he’s thinking about writing his letter of resignation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LrEW8kU6y8w
      As he pauses and we see his memory flashbacks, it seems to be a bell-like variation on Road to You (itself a Pachelbel Canon take-off): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mGqw0_-dP34

      Then it’s the same music as when he goes into the Garden when he returns to Cuba to save the hotel deal, which you can hear in this clip (as well as at the end of ep 15) — this is the specific one you asked about, but unfortunately I haven’t found it in any OST/BGM lists (though it sure ought to be!):
      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G4YHVhQOKDQ&list=PLMbn3LWh31LIbytpNeFV56zhxqxsc6vMn&index=22
      And then at the end as he enters her office, it goes into the credits with OST Part 7, Always Be With You

    If you love the background music as much as I do (even more than the OST songs!), Guile II has posted them on youtube – search for Encounter Instrumental BGM Soundtrack. Titles like Sunset, Hongie-dong Playground, and about 10 others, including the background for some of the more epic transformational scenes – amazing! I’m so thrilled to have found these! Some of the most exquisite BGM I’ve heard in a kdrama, on par with the exquisite animated illustrations for each episode/conflict. Gorgeous.

      That’s beautiful! I haven’t heard that on any of the official OST/BGM releases.
      This drama is full of the most beautiful background music, and unfortunately, a lot of it doesn’t seem to be published separately.
      Thanks for pointing this one out!

          Well, it means you’ve already found it the only place it exists, which is inside the drama!
          Lots of the BGM never makes it outside of a drama, unless you’re tech savvy enough to extract it yourself.

    There’s a song that I keep hearing in this drama, and there are no words in the song, it’s just a woman humming. It’s easiest to find at the start of episode 9, the song plays after they kiss @ 1:35. I hope somebody can help me, I really love the song.

      It’s the OST 2 by Lee So Ra, Into My Heart. I can’t find the humming version anywhere (outside of the drama!), but she sings it so softly, she might as well be humming!

          Hello! Thank you so much for this. Unfortunately though, this isn’t the one. The music I’m looking for actually has a lot of whistling first and then humming. I really hope someone could find it. 😭

          PS I love Lee Sora’s Into My Heart too!
