It’s Leo season, and second-gen ‘eye smile’ icon Tiffany Young fully embodies her fire sign by taking on one project after another - from headlining the Chicago musical in Korea to mentoring in survival show Girls Planet 999.
But even in the previous years, the Girls’ Generation lead vocalist has been keeping herself busy gracing the international scene with eargasmic tracks we’d listen to any day. Her attention-grabbing solo acts are so flavorful they could pass as life anthems of our favorite drama leads.
Run for Your Life: Jang Man Wol, Hotel del Luna
Imagine the synergy: our thousand-year-old lady boss strutting across the hall with Run For Your Life playing in the background - nothing short of perfection.

Once In A Lifetime: Ki Seon Gyeom, Run On
This laid-back but happy hormone-inducing song echoes the warm and fuzzy love that Ki Seon Gyeom (Im Siwan) has for Oh Mijoo (Shin Se Kyung). Their chance encounter turned out to be his once-in-a-lifetime game-changer, as meeting Mijoo helped him transform into someone who is no longer afraid to stand by his principles regardless of the situation.

Yellow Light: Kim Jung Hwan, Reply 1988
All hail the patron saint of hesitations and traffic lights: Ssangmundong’s very own Kim Jung Hwan (Ryu Jun Yeol). The push-and-pull feeling all over the lyrics paints a vivid memory of Jungpal’s indecisiveness the entire time. The track’s conclusion also mirrors his painful resolve in the end: “I think I need to stop.”
Runaway: Yoon Seri, Crash Landing On You

Thanks to their elite backgrounds, running away and eventually crossing paths in Switzerland was among the options.
