kdrama - beethoven virus

official website:

drama title:
베토벤 바이러스 / Beethoven Virus

main cast:
Kim Myung Min as Kang Gun Woo Senior (Conductor)
Lee Ji Ah as Du Ru Mi, the woman sandwiched between 2 cool guys
Jang Geun Suk as Kang Gun Woo Junior

multiple threads all related to the trials and tribulations of setting up a city orchestra. you got a problem? yup, from politics to conductor to orchestra member issues, it's what keeps this drama ticking. all through it, there's a love triangle that kinda sorted itself out during the episodes. and Ru Mi even has a hearing loss issue.

my score: 6 out of 10.
how i derived that score. this was a let down after i had watched "He's Beautiful". still, i found something wonderful in the music. classic is classic. just close your eyes when you see actors pretend to play musical instruments. and the younger Guen Suk is as charming as ever, if not even more refreshing.

why you should watch it:
for the music, for the younger Guen Suk who is pure magnetism, and for that electric violin duo performance during the orchestra auditions. (tip: one of the duo is a real live gorgeous electric violinist from Bellatrix)
