Many fabulous Chinese dramas also come with lovely theme songs, but did you know that some of the songs are sung by the leading stars of the dramas? Examples include the fantasy romantic saga Lost Love in Times, mystery thriller Memory Lost, the historical romance General and I, and more. Check out these seven Chinese dramas where the leading stars enthrall you with their romantic theme songs.

1. Memory Lost - The lead couple, Yang Rong and Bai Yu, sing "Sleep Soundly" in the fascinating mystery thriller. The two stars play strangers who meet without realizing they were once lovers.
