Even if a drama sucks, the OST can totally rock ass. Sure, half the songs on the full albums are merely instrumentals, but the real songs are cute and peppy — a little like what the drama tried to be but didn’t achieve. Geun Seuk Jang sings on the special version and on two songs on the first album — Take Care, My Bus! and Precious, by far the best songs on the first part of the album.

Sadly, albeit how good the four songs JGS performs are, it is not enough to make these OST’s really good. Considering the fact that Mary Stayed Out All Night is partly about an indie band in the heart of Seoul, there is not enough music in here. There should be whole songs, not so many instrumentals.

The second part of the OST is not that much to think about. Just get part 1 and the special version; erase all the instrumentals and keep the whole songs. That leaves you with six tracks, a mini-album! So Korean style!

Rating: ★★★☆☆

    Can't really comment on the series, but don't you think the instrumentals fit in the soundtrack/score more than pop songs? So you want songs with lyrics, but are the instrumental pieces so bad?
