[Star of the Week] Who is the Ultimate OST King of Super Junior?

Super Junior has had a wide variety of hit songs since 2005, but we tend to forget that Super Junior has more songs than what is on its official albums.
While some may have done more than others (coughYesungcough), the Super Junior members, each with his own unique voice, have allowed themselves to be heard in the world of dramas by participating in multiple drama OSTs. 

In celebration of a Super Junior-filled weekend, we′re highlighting the drama OST voices of Super Junior!

Donghae for Ms. Panda and Mr. Porcupine

Although he was as prickly as a porcupine in Channel A’s Ms. Panda and Mr. Porcupine, Donghae’s sweet voice, which swept girls off of their feet, shined in two tracks of the drama OST - Plz Don’t and Don’t Go.

Although both songs begged for a lover not to go, Plz Don’t and Don’t Go set two different moods, allowing multiple sides of Donghae to be shown.

Aside from Ms. Panda and Mr. Porcupine, Donghae also participated in the OST of It’s Okay, Daddy’s Daughter, which he graciously appeared in as well.

Ryeowook for Spy Myung Wol

Although there was a whole mess of dramatic moments in the drama, Ryeowook’s voice stayed constant in KBS’ Spy Myung Wol as he sang If You Love Me More.

Ryeowook may not be in the spotlight as much as the other Super Junior members, but through Spy Myung Wol, as well as It’s Okay, Daddy’s Daughter and My Sweet Home, he proved that he’s capable of holding his own when given the chance.

Kyuhyun for Baker King, Kim Tak Goo

While we were all drooling over the images of deliciously baked bread, Kyuhyun kindly sang Hope is a Dream that Doesn’t Sleep in the background of KBS’ Baker King, Kim Tak Goo.

Baker King, Kim Tak Goo was watched by more than 50 percent of the Korean population, which meant that more than half of Korea heard Kyuhyun sing, making this track one of the most wanted songs at the time.

When he met Oh Jae Moo, a child actor who appeared in the drama, Kyuhyun boasted that the drama got high ratings because of his singing, making everyone in the studio laugh.

Kyuhyun later went on to let his voice be heard in Poseidon,, Mooshin and The Great Seer, but nothing was as big of a hit as Baker King, Kim Tak Goo.

Kyuhyun certainly has much to brag about, but if he ever needs a piece of humble pie, we′re sure Kim Tae Goo can whip something up in no time.

Yesung for Cinderella Sister

Yesung has the most decorated resume as an OST singer, having sung for That Winter, The Wind Blows, The King of Dramas, Ms. Panda and Mr. Porcupine, I Do I Do, Warrior Baek Dong Soo, and President.

But it was KBS’ Cinderella Sister, which Yesung sang It Has to be You for, that kicked off Yesung′s OST career and the rest is history.

Honorable Mentions

We highlighted the members who have lent their voices to numerous drama OSTs above, but that doesn’t mean the other members haven’t participated in a soundtrack.

Choi Siwon sang for SBS’ Oh My Lady and Sungmin for KBS’ sitcom, I Need a Fairy. Leeteuk also collaborated with SHINee’s Key in SBS’ History of the Salaryman.

And finally, there was Super Junior, who sang for MBC’s Hit, KBS’ President, SBS’ Thirty Thousand Miles in Search of My Son, the movie Dreams Come True, and last but not least, Attack on the Pin Up Boys. 

So which Super Junior member do you think is the drama OST king?
