KDrama: Heartstrings

One of my fave KDrama of all time is You’re Beautiful (YAB), there I first fell for Jang Geun Seok. Of course I rooted for the emo-looking-guy JGS (I really hated his hair at first but fell hard later) and the gender-bender-nun Park Shin Hye. But my heart bled dry for the kind-third-wheeler Jung Yong Hwa.

That was 2009, fast forward to 2011. Park Shin Hye and Jung Yong Hwa teamed together for Heatstrings aka You've Fallen For Me! Now JYH gets the girl, definitely 100% sure!

Lee Shin is a university student majoring in modern music. He is also the vocalist and guitarist of the band "The Stupid." Shin is known for his good looks and strong passion for music, but in reality he is cold, lacks interest in anything unrelated to music and has neither dreams nor plans for the future. He initially likes Jung Yoon Soo, a dance professor at university, but this all changes when he meets Lee Kyu Won.
Lee Kyu Won is a bright and outgoing student who was born into a prestigious family and is majoring in traditional Korean instruments, especially the gayageum. Kyu Won's grandfather, Lee Dong Gun, is one of the top 3 traditional musicians of his age and his biggest wish is to see his granddaughter become a traditional music prodigy. Trying to live up to her grandfather's expectations, Kyu Won immerses herself in training and becomes a university student who knows nothing 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.
