The maestro takes command

Some more stills are released of Kim Myung-min taking up the conductor’s wand in upcoming MBC drama Beethoven Virus.

Scenes were shot over two days on August 12 and 13 at the Seongnam Arts Center Opera House as Kim Myung-min commanded a “project orchestra” comprising unruly amateur musicians (in the drama, it’s done purposely to take his character down a peg or two). Performed during these scenes are Rossini’s William Tell Overture, the Gabriel’s Oboe Overture, Beethoven’s Choral (Symphony No. 9), and others.

Beethoven Virus premieres September 10.

wow, sounds exactly like the premise of nodame cantabile. i doubt it could be that silly though...judging from the stills it looks a lot more serious.

@ kotatsulove,
That's exactly what I thought too.

But nothing can beat Nodame Cantabile :]

I am glad his hair is not as 'curly' as earlier promo pics in those shots. Actually it is looking really good now, I can see his brilliant aura just from those pictures.
I can't wait to see this drama, Kim Myung Min never disappointed me in anything he has done before.

However, I simply can't imagine him performing the role of Chiaki Shinichi in Nodame Cantabile though.

Uh, I get where people are getting the Nodame comparisons, but as I've said before, this is NOT a Nodame remake.

I'm actually looking forward to this. I really like dramas that have an interesting "theme" such as the new ice-skating one.

I would love to see dramas tackle other less seen occupations as well---like a firefighter drama :)

"I am glad his hair is not as ‘curly’ as earlier promo pics in those shots."

Plus his BV wardrobe is absolutely faboo. If Virus flies, KMM is going be a big teen hearthrob, just you wait! :D

"Performed during these scenes are Rossini’s William Tell Overture, the Gabriel’s Oboe Overture, Beethoven’s Choral (Symphony No. 9), and others."

In the BV promo clip, they havev a scene with KMM conducting the scrappy troupe to Gabriel's Oboe, which is my favorite Ennio Morricone number. Sigh.

I'm just so excited for this drama Read this on Soompi -- it turned out the title "Beethoven Virus" was a sweetheart wink to the Damo fan club. Some years back, fans from the club produced a Damo MV to Beethoven Virus. Lee Jae-kyu liked it so much that he wanted to use Beethoven Virus in a future project. Also it would be cool how LJK drops in the obligatory Ha Ji Won guest spot, ESPECIALLY with Jang Geun Suk in the cast.

This is just the perfect LJK project. He has terrific grasp of genre and film grammar, but above all, he is a genuine romantic. Beyond mere effect, he can marry a piece of music with a wordless sequence into a sublime summation of a time, love, a true filmic moment.

"I really like dramas that have an interesting “theme” such as the new ice-skating one."

You know, I'm surprised they haven't done an archery K-drama, given the national domination in this sport. It would be so cool if they did a story on an aspiring female archer, who had Jumong posters in her bedroom and daydreamed conversations with the Prince of Korea Himself.
