i think it really does but most of the dramas that i have been watching has good soundtracks ... i even appreciate it when the lyrics are also subbed and it makes me understand more of what it meant for the characters or the plot of the series.

Drama and soundtrack work together as a team.
For instance.... everytime I listen to the ISWAK drama soundtrack, I could picture a possible scenario in the drama that can happen between Qiang Xin, Zhi Shu, Yu Shu, Ah Jin, or the aunt. That's how powerful it is... they integrate soundtrack with the drama so well that I am constantly reminded of the drama when I hear a song from the soundtrack.
A major example is the 007 James bond theme song... that has become the groundwork for all spy-related activities in movies, commercials, t.v. shows, and short scenes.
Plot line is very important because that's what the viewers logically see and think about. But viewers sensation are not only plot, but sight and sound. If the director did a bad job, and the scenes were sloppy, then it doesn't matter if the story line is good, right? Same thing goes for a soundtrack, we like to please our ears. Especially when the protagonist is happy, a good happy soundtrack can certainly boost my spirit up.

not all the time, but the good dramas tend to have a really good soundtrack.
I really liked the 1L of tears- only human, and my sassy girl (movie)- I believe

Definitely. a good soundtrack adds to the overall product and even makes it, especially certain scenes where the emotion just hightens because of the song like in 1 litre of tears for example.

yes! i do believe so! if a drama is already good, and the music rocks, then it will be soooooooo awesome! but if the drama is really good, and the music kinda sucks, it'll bring the drama down a notch, but i'll still like it a lot! BUT if the drama sucks and the music sucks, then i'll hate it!!!!!

in some dramas, the soundtracks really complement the drama...
and this actually helps the viewers to feel the scene better..
especially if it is a sad or funny scene, depending on the ballad or comical song used.
of course in some dramas, the soundtracks are not that good and hence it kinda affect the whole experience of watching the drama.

i mean, yes we would rather watch a good plot with bad soundtrack than a bad plot with a good soundtrack

but then again, why compromise on the drama or soundtracks when we can maximise our viewing experience with both good plots and soundtracks.(:"

ps sorry for the long post haha

not always...i definitely agree that dramas like ISWAK, 1 litre of tears and goong had awesome soundtracks that just made you remember scenes in the drama >>but they r accompanied by great publicity and pretty well-known celebrities

one example...soulmate, had incredible tracks from both foreign and native artisits that complimented the series amazingly, but failed to reach the same amount of hype and attention as the others

A superb OST will most likely enhance the success of the drama, maybe a cherry on top or something like that but definitely won't decide the success of the drama. In general, people watch drama because of attractive plot and actors (characters)...very seldom do people first look at the artists in the OST then decide if they'll watch the drama or not. At the end of the day, a good OST completes the package of an amazing drama...it's like a touch of perfection~

i think that if the soundtrack is bad it might make the ``atmostphere`` different to what is happening in the drama i guess
but i think what happens in the drama is more what you`d concentrate on

well, afterall i never really heard a bad soundtrack for a drama yet..
or maybe i jsut forgot o.o
