10+ K-Pop Songs Featured In Netflix’s “To All The Boys” K-Drama Spin-Off “XO, Kitty”

Did you catch these K-Pop hits in the background?

The anticipated spinoff of Netflix‘s To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before franchise, adapted from Jenny Han‘s novels, XO, Kitty is now officially available for streaming!

Since the show occurs mainly in Seoul, it seemed only fitting that the soundtrack includes many K-Pop hits. Yet, even the number of K-Pop songs featured in the new show surprised the cast.

XO, Kitty star Anthony Keyvan knew the To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before spin-off series would feature Korean pop hits. But even the actor, who plays Kitty Song Covey’s (Anna Cathcart) best friend, Q, didn’t know the rom-com would be this K-pop heavy until he was rerecording dialogue for a few scenes long after principal photography wrapped.

“I heard parts of the scoring and I was like, ‘Oh my gosh, I’ve heard this on TikTok. This is a very popular K-pop song,’ ” Keyvan tells Tudum.
