Here are the musically outstandig nominees:
"Bride of the Water God 2017" - From the whimsy inspired by the Savina & Drones song "Glass Bridge" to the melancholy that descends during Lucia's "Without You", "Bride of the Water God 2017" aired a beautiful OST that matched the expansive story.
"Goblin" - From Ailee's heartfelt ballad "I Will Go to You Like the First Snow" that helped shape our emotional understanding of the goblin and his bride to the pulsing Chanyeol & Punch duet "Stay With Me - 2016", the "Goblin" OST is just as magical the drama.
"Strong Woman Do Bong-soon" - From Mamamoo's "Double Trouble Couple" that perfectly mimicked the jaunty nature of heroine Do Bong-soon to Jung Eun-ji's husky tones that matched the love that grew between Park Hyung-sik and Park Bo-young, this OST had as much personality as the show.
"Suspicious Partner" - From Nell's Kim Jong-wan and his gentle voice in "The Memory of That Day" to Cheeze's "How About You" that sounded to heighten emotion between Ji Chang-wook and Nam Ji-hyun, this OST played up both the romance and the mystery.
"Chicago Typewriter" - From the haunting a cappella opening of SG WANNABE's "Writing Our Stories" that tells the tale of three friends to SALTNPAPER's "Satellite", the "Chicago Typewriter" OST carries our hearts along with the three freedom fighters from beginning to end.
"The Best Hit" - from Kim Min-jae-I's and Younha's duet Dream that told the tale of Ji-hoon's talents and dreams to Yoon Mi-rae's hopefully Sky, the music of "The Best Hit" is definitive of the times and of growth and understanding.
"Save Me" - From Jung Cha-sik's haunting "Sandy Wind" that directly relates to the cult members to Inkii's "I Am" that utters the words the heroine so often utters, "Save Me", this OST is a powerful reflection of a wrenching story.
"Voice" - From Kim Young-geun's ballad that tells the stories of the policemen who valiently do their jobs to Changmo's "I'm All Ears" full-bodied rapping that drove the drama forward, "Voice relied heavily on this excellent OST to establish the tone and do right by the victims represented.
"Lookout" - From the hard-hitting opening "Amen" by Damiano and Jenyer to the low-key Raina-sung "When Rain Falls", the "Lookout" OST is a master of raising and lowering your pulse to fit the action onscreen.
