Music Monday: 2019 drama soundtracks edition

I find all the character relationships in this drama to be very interesting, but my top three would have to be Crown Prince x Emperor, Crown Prince x Lu Wenxi and Lu Wenxi x Crown Princess.

A good original soundtrack / theme song always makes the drama-watching experience more enjoyable, so I’ve included the theme songs and instrumentals that have really impressed me this year. Which drama soundtracks made an impression on you this year?

Royal Nirvana: Instrumentals by Ah Kun

As long as Royal Nirvana doesn’t derail in the last half, then this series will be my favourite drama of the year.

More Gorgeous Outfits from Princess Silver

All of Zhang Xueying outfits look meticulously designed while still looking natural.

Princess Silver easily has my favorite costume and make-up so far this year. Zhang Xueying alone has over 40 outfits, every one of which looks beautiful on her. I’m on the fence about the one dress with ruffles, but every other outfit for all the leads does a great job of using pastels, patterns, fabric , and small modifications to give the series a unique look while making it still look within the realm of hanfu.

Love the use of ombre in their outfits here.
