Beethoven Virus, not the DDR song

Am loads excited about the new drama – mainly because I loved both Jang Geun Suk‘s Chang Hui and Lee Jia‘s Sujini, and I really want to see what they do with the plot. Nodame Cantabile aside, there aren’t that many dramas about orchestras out there. From the looks of the preview, it’s much more serious (no mushrooms growing out of people’s underwear, woe). There is competition! And rebellion! And maybe Jang Geun Suk conducting, which should be interesting.

Trailer here:

Kim Myung Min plays Kang Gun Woo, a traditionalist conductor for one of the best orchestras in the city. He’s kind of mean and is willing to do anything (i.e. push his instrumentalists beyond what they should endure) to make the music sound better. Lee Jia portrays violinist (first violin?) Du Ru Mi, who, despite being part of Kang Gun Woo’s orchestra, manages to maintain an open-minded approach to music. A policeman and amateur trumpeter of the same name — Kang Gun Woo — (with perfect pitch and talent) meets Du Ru Mi in the subway one day, and the story begins…

Of course, any respectable kdrama will have love geometry of some sort, and well, it should be kind of obvious by this point. Both men compete for Du Ru Mi. I wonder if they’ll do underground vs. formal orchestra, or if the second Kang Gun Woo will try to take the orchestra away from the first.

It cheers me to see that Lee Jia is holding the violin correctly. But then, these are professionals. If they made mistakes, it wouldn’t be the obvious ones. (Hopefully.)

Beethoven Virus begins airing September 10, 2008.

I have a huge soft spot for Jang Geun Seok, but I didn't like his acting in Hong Gil Dong too much. He wasn't terrible and if I end up watching this for him, I'll watch for his voice. The guy has a nice speaking voice, what can I say.

This may be culturally insensitive, but does the name "Du Ru Mi" have to do with "Do Re Mi"? Like un/intentionally? Or is it just me not noticing the obvious?

whoa! that image of Jang Geun Seok conducting on the rooftop at 0:30- gives me hope that this drama will be doing some creative, unexpected things. Might watch this drama based on that.

and the name Du Ru Mi. Don't know any koreans with that last name. it's more of a chinese last name.

IT's interesting! But I do hope it won't be too serious though! The director of this drama ( also PD for Damo and Fashion 70's) seem to be really serious .
Love Jang Geun Suk there.

Seeing dramabeans complimenting JGS in his role as Chang Hui is like Christmas coming early.
Oh, my mistake, it's Sevenses.

Huh there's no pairing of Hong Gil Dong on this drama except for just Jang Geun Suk.

Anyways 8 more days to go, but probably add more days for the subs to come out. Thanks for the trailer. Yah, it seems kind of too serious.

Hmm Damo wasn't really my favorite drama because it got too overdramatic after the 1st episode since I thought it would be like a mystery solving drama. But got disappointed when it turned out like any other Korean drama. I hope they don't focus too much on overdramatic parts but the music. Well I guess many people will be comparing it with Nodame Cantabile since it's kind of a rare topic in dramas.

Still looking forward to it though.

Du Ru Mi means crane in krn. Nothing to do with Do Re Mi I guess.

this is well crafted drama compared to most predictable korean dramas. i like it even better when the romantic side of the story wasnt really exploited as other k-dramas made. the ending wasnt dissapointing. it was intellectually concluded. better than the usual happy ending drama. the beauty of this drama lies on the excellent acting of the main characters (maestro kang and ru mi, most especi ally) kim myung min should get a 5 star rating for his very convincing role as conductor with so much "angst," He is just simply remarkable. hope mbc gives him more project so with le jian. not just a pretty face but a natural talent suited for big screen...
