The follow-up to Park Shin Hyeand Jung Yonghwa’s hit drama “You’re Beautiful“ is heading abroad. The MBC drama “Heartstrings” (aka “You’ve Fallen for Me“) will begin airing in Japan starting July. The light-hearted college love story premiered in June of 2011.
The drama originally aired in Korea from June to August of last year and revolved around the lives of college students dreaming of becoming musicians. In addition, Jung Yonghwa’s self-penned track for the drama, “Because I Miss You” earned wide-spread love and attention from listeners during its airing last year. The show, which also stars CNBLUE member Kang Min-hyuk, Song Chang-eui and So E-hyun, brought in ratings between eight and nine percentage during its two-month run in June of last year.
The following is a brief synopses:
Lee Shin (Jung Yonghwa) is a university student majoring in Western Music. He is also the vocalist and guitarist of the band “The Stupid.” Shin is known for his good looks, cocky personality, and strong passion for music. He initially likes Jung Yoon Soo, a dance professor at the university, but this all changes when he meets Lee Gyu Won. Lee Gyu Won (Park Shinhye) is a bright and outgoing student who was born into a prestigious family and is majoring in Traditional Korean Music, her instrument is the gayageum. Trying to live up to her grandfather’s expectations, Gyu Won immerses herself in practice and becomes a university student who knows nothing much outside of her studies. As her friends are fans of “The Stupid”, she was forced to go to the band’s concert with them. There she saw Lee Shin performing live, and is immediately captivated by him. Yeo Joon Hee (Kang Minhyuk), a bumbling, shy and ever hungry boy who doesn’t act his age. He has a complete child-like personality, shaggy idiot by day, and “The Stupid’s” lead drummer by night.
FNC said in a press release today that MBC drama “Heartstrings” will air in prime time on Japan’s Fuji TV this summer.
I really liked this drama although it was pretty aggravating at times because of the push/ pull situations that would go on over and over but I guess most dramas have their aggravating moments. I really loved Lee Shin’s character, he was rude and cocky yes but despite that cold exterior, he just wanted to be loved. I really enjoyed watching “Heartstrings“, I feel like re-watching it again because it was that good. I’m so looking forward for Yonghwa to return to acting, let’s hope its soon.
