Japanese dramas are some of my favorite entertainments. They can be pretty short, usually end in around 10 episodes; sometimes they are manga-turns-into-live action, it’s always fun to see how they make fantasy into reality; I also enjoy filming and editing techniques as well as visual effects, they can be good learning materials for us cinematographer/editor/designer.

My usual choice of genre usually involves a lot of crime investigation, mystery solving, and actions, be it a melodrama or comedy. So Heartbroken Chocolatier (失恋ショコラティエ) doesn’t really fit my normal appetite since it’s a love story about a boy became a chocolatier to try to win over his high school crush.

But the drama managed to surprise me with its soundtracks. I’m not talking about the theme song Bittersweet by Arashi, which is just the typical J-Pop song you’d expect from a pop band. I’m talking about the music used in the opening credit, the track that was played the girl turns her back to the boy, the background score that pushes the mood in the scene up/down.

Many times I’ve gotten lost in the melody that I forgot to pay attention to the words the characters are speaking. From electro-pop to acoustic piano, these catchy tunes compliment all the moments as the story unfolds. The listeners can drown themselves in middle of the dreamy atmosphere that the music created. Ken Arai is the one who created these masterpieces. He is a prolific music producer who has provided soundtracks for other popular dramas as well. 

Kiss and Cry attached here is one of my favorite. The melody that the piano rides on truly expresses that bittersweet feeling the drama continuously portrays. Check out the rest of the OST on SoundCloud here
