What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim Music List, OST and BGM

Park Seo Joon and Park Min-young are happily hugging in a hospital in What's Wrong With Secretary Kim
Music list for the Korean drama What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim. We will upload the OST’s as they are released; 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!
