You’ve Fallen For Me: Episode 6
by | July 14, 2011 | 247 Comments

It’s a bit of an angst-go-round this episode, as Shin faces some harsh truths and Kyu-won finally realizes her heart. Though it’s hard not to hate anyone who makes Kyu-won’s life difficult, I do appreciate their youthful journeys into and out of love.

EPISODE 6: “With the feeling that it must be” [Also “…that I/you must be here.” It’s intentionally pronoun-less.]

Reeling from the sight of Yoon-su and Seok-hyun reuniting, Shin lashes out at Kyu-won, calling out her crush on him. She fights back angry tears, calling him an idiot.

The teachers walk out, blissfully unaware of all the heartache they’ve left in their wake.

Shin rides home in the rain, full of tears and angry shouts. Kyu-won cries too, sitting alone on the bus. It’s like a chain of heartbreak.

Shin goes to see Dad, who senses right away that it’s been a bad day for Shin, probably because of his lady troubles. He picks up his guitar and plays a melody that he’s written for the song Shin played for him, and it lifts his spirits.

He comes home in a funk, and Mom asks if he’s still going to guitar lessons, fishing to see if his teacher has said anything out of the ordinary. He tells her the story of him loving his friend’s girlfriend and stealing her away… which incenses Mom.

She tells him to stop going there, and he flatly refuses her. She hesitates… “Do you… know who he is?” He tells her that he knows, and that he’s going to keep going there, no matter what she says. Mom trembles, tears flooding her eyes. I honestly don’t know what you thought was going to happen when you introduced them, lady. Your son’s not an idiot.

He arrives at school just in time to see Seok-hyun dropping Yoon-su off, and then goes to confront her about it. He tosses out bitterly, “So you found one—an adult man.” You are such a punk sometimes.

He asks her what she likes so much about Seok-hyun, and Yoon-su tries to walk away from the conversation. But Shin is a dog with a bone, so she finally asks what he likes so much about her.

He says “Everything.” So she says that’s what she likes about Seok-hyun. “Everything. Being with him makes me happy. Him, not you.” Damn. I do admit that although she’s a downer, her set-downs are refreshingly direct and clear—the perfect thing to force the kid to move the hell on.

He tells her that he’ll do it then—he’ll give up and forget her. He says it defiantly, as if challenging her not to regret it. I love the realism of his youthful crush, because to him it’s life and death, and he can’t see beyond what he feels. It’s not his fault either, because he simply lacks the perspective to look beyond himself. It’s sweet and endearing.

Kyu-won comes to school coffee in hand, searching for Shin. She waits by his bike all morning, and ends up leaving his coffee there, unable to see him and clear the air.

He’s busy angsting it out on the field, and finally decides to toss the necklace away. Well at least he’s trying to actually move on.

Ki-young officially joins musical practice, and he gets a half-hearted welcome from everyone except Jun-hee, who bounces up and down and squees. He quickly points out Hee-joo as his Natasha, adding that she’s very shy but really pretty.

Ki-young gets filled in on the fact that Jun-hee is a few marbles short, so not to take anything he says very seriously. Well that’s a character in a nutshell.

Seok-hyun gets warned by his sunbae that trusting Ki-young is risky, and adds that Hee-joo needs to get the lead spot over Kyu-won, to keep the university president happy. That riles him up plenty, and then he comes to practice to find that Kyu-won and Shin are playing hooky.

Oooh, bad timing. He’s just gotten through defending your ass, and then you skip practice to chase Shin? He calls her in front of everyone, yelling into the phone that she’d better get to practice or she’ll be cut from the musical.

She’s too busy following Shin to listen, and just gives him an excuse over the phone. It starts pouring rain and finally Kyu-won shouts at Shin, wondering how long he’s going to keep being like this.

She tells him that he’s being pathetic and petty. I know he’s being a big mope, but I don’t see why it should matter so much to you. I mean, let the guy work through his feelings. It’s only been half a day.

He yells back that it’s over now, and that he’s decided to give it up. He starts to stalk off, but then turns around to take the gayageum out of her hands, to carry it for her. Aw.

They stand outside a music store, waiting out the rain under an awning. It’s a nice silent moment shared between them, as they stick their hands out to catch raindrops. They say nothing, but it’s the first moment of real connection between them.

It’s moving day for Shin’s family, and Kyu-won finds out when his bratty sister comes by asking for a hammer, with no manners whatsoever. Seriously, I’m beginning to think this family was raised badly, based on both kids’ demeanor towards adults. Makes me want to yell at their mom.

She breaks a vase and makes a run for it, so Grandpa chases her all the way to their house, and Kyu-won follows suit, trying to hide her face. Shin is shocked to see her, and now his brat sister recognizes her too: “Hey, it’s that Pumpkin Girl!”

Mom finally comes out and introduces herself to Gramps, and then we flash back to when they first met. Kyu-won’s dad had brought her home as the girl he was going to marry, and Grandpa had called her the band singer who seduced his son with that devil’s music.

Shin’s dad calls Kyu-won’s dad to ask him to visit, because there’s something he wants to tell him before he dies. Kyu-won’s dad isn’t keen on the idea, and makes excuses.

Kyu-won can’t believe that she’s neighbors with Shin now, and greatly regrets her wardrobe choice for the day. The next morning she peeks at Shin’s front door, only to have him come out to find her standing there, looking as if she waited to see him all morning.

She makes up an excuse about trash day, and I die in embarrassment for her, as she tries to leave nonchalantly, but then realizes she went the wrong way. Hee. I love that they’re neighbors now.

Seok-hyun’s sunbae has had enough of watching the musical go down the tubes, and decides to form his own separate musical, to debut a month before Seok-hyun’s. HA. Oh that’s not petty or anything. It’s hilariously transparent, but whatever—it just means we’ll get some Dream High misfit/cool kids action, which is fine by me.

Kyu-won gets chewed out for missing practice, but Seok-hyun has such a soft spot for her that he lets it go once he sees how sorry she is. But she’s warned that one more missed practice really means that she’s out.

He says the same to Shin when he and Yoon-su pass him in the halls, and Shin just gives a half-hearted okay as he watches them walk off, happily in love.

Kyu-won’s dad finally goes to see Shin’s father, and flips his lid at his request for him to look out for Shin and his mom. Oh that’s a low blow. So you’re gonna steal your best friend’s girl, ruin both their lives, and then swoop in right before dying and pretend to be the noble one? Blech.

Kyu-won’s dad basically has an outburst for good reason, although he’s not exempt from being a martyr and an idiot either, so whatever.

He walks out just as Shin walks in, and his father has a seizure. He waits all day to try and see him, to no avail. So he leaves a music notebook for the nurse, to ask him to take a look at it when he’s awake.

The Brat decides she’s hungry and abuses Shin’s slave privileges to get Kyu-won to cook for her, and of course Kyu-won falls for it, thinking that she’s cooking for Shin. Oy. Mom comes home just in time to see Kyu-won get a call from her dad and run out to meet him.

Shin takes out one of his dad’s old albums that he discovered while unpacking Mom’s stuff, and remembers his short time with Dad wistfully.

The next day at school, Kyu-won reminds Shin that it’s the last day of her slave contract. He almost lets it slide, and then asks if she can find a necklace that he lost in the field. No! Don’t do that!

He rethinks it and tells her not to find it and walks off. But of course, Kyu-won doesn’t let it rest, and gets her friends to help her search the whole field. Problem is, she doesn’t know what it looks like.

Shin gets a call from Mom and then attends a funeral with her… only to find once he’s there that it’s for his father. What, you didn’t even tell him whose funeral he was going to? You are the suckiest mom ever.

They pay their respects, and Dad’s wife hands Shin his music notebook and Dad’s guitar, insisting that he take it. At home Shin asks Mom if those people know who they are, and she nods. He asks if alcoholism is hereditary, and she tells him tearfully that he’s not the same.

He caresses Dad’s album and asks his sister if he looks like him. She asks if that means it’s his father, and wonders what’s going on with him and Mom. He skips school for a few days, and slowly word spreads of the news.

Shin finally cries, looking at the song that he had given to Dad, looking at the changes had made to help him fix it. He pictures Dad’s shaking hand as he added notes and fixed his song, just before dying.

He goes to the club and plays the song, crying and thinking of Dad as he sends him off in his own way. (The song is posted above).

Kyu-won searches again for the necklace and finally finds it. She’s disappointed to discover that it’s a woman’s. She hears that Shin came to the club and rushes over there, but he’s already played and left.

She runs out to the street to find him.

He’s sitting in the rain in the same spot they were before. Only Yoon-su finds him first and hands him an umbrella and turns to go. He stops her and puts his arms around, not in a I-want-you way, but in a really vulnerable I-need-a-shoulder-to-cry-on way.

It still infuriates me that she’s even there, but it breaks my heart to see him finally cry like a little boy on her shoulder.

Kyu-won runs up clutching the necklace, only she’s too late.

Kyu-won: Shin is crying. I wanted to run and tell him before anyone else… “Are you okay? It’ll be okay.” Right now Shin is in someone else’s arms. Not mine… someone else’s.

 
COMMENTS

Aw, I love the moment of Kyu-won’s heartbreaking realization. She’s denied her growing crush and been able to chalk it up to hurt pride or simply trying to be a good friend, but it’s the first moment of real heartbreak for her, and it’s played beautifully by Park Shin-hye.

I know he’s lost his dad and she’s worried, but it aggravates me to no end that Yoon-su is even giving him an opportunity to hold onto her. I spent the entire episode liking her as much as can be liked because she was so firm and clear in rejecting him, only to have her turn around and do this, which just puts her right back in the doghouse. Grar.

So going in I knew this was going to be a youth melodrama, so I’m okay with any angst having to do with the youthful discovery of love, first heartbreak, confusing feelings and all that, but I certainly hope that the parental angst is going to take a backseat after this. Shin’s relationship with Dad was played nicely, but it’s the Mom-Dad-Kyu-won’s dad triangle that drives me bonkers.

I get that Shin’s going through a rough patch, but I wonder if it’s necessary for Kyu-won to be down just because he’s down. It’s not that I don’t understand her angst—it’s just that I want it to be her OWN. Right now she seems swayed by his emotions rather than acting based on her own, so I’d like to see more development for her, and storylines for her to act independently of Shin. Because a crush is a crush, but girl’s gotta live a life, yeah? I’m looking forward to more of her journey in doing the musical and spreading her wings a bit. And while we’re at it, let’s bring back Gukak vs. Rock.

So we’ve been keeping the recaps warm for the first few weeks until Romance Town ended, because this series was always kaedejun‘s to begin with (she has a love for Kang Min-hyuk that we’d be crazy to mess with). She’ll be taking over the recaps from here on out, but we’ll be watching and commenting along with the rest of you. (Especially since I have no plans to relinquish Song Chang-eui.) Initiate: baton pass!

    ep6!
    what an unexpected surprise!
    i feel like i feel the ‘melodrama’ part of this drama now..
    but since this is a ‘youth melodrama’, im guessing/hoping the melodrama wont be cancer, etc.. but the hardships of growing up?

    thank you! :)

    • 6.1 Dalena

      but now i can’t wait for next week D:
      I should of thought this through :(

  7. rin

    Kyu Won is in love so how Shin feels will sway her own feelings. If the person you love is sad, you will feel sad for him. If the person you love is happy, you will feel happy for them.

    • 7.1 Joy Chuah (Malaysia)

      A well justified answer. I totally agree. They don’t say love is blind for no apparent reasons eh…

    • 7.2 comics_gilz

      I love the story and i love KW…that’s the way a girl with soft spot reacted to the feeling of the guy that she love….but i seriously want KW to move on….really want her to focus more on her musical after her heartbreak with Shin….and there’s Ki-Young..he is not that bad compare to Shin….KW would look nice with him… ^^ can’t wait for the next episode..!! really reaally reeeaaallyy want to see KW overcome her sadness for shin…and want to see Ki-Young’s and KW’s relationship building up..!! Hwaiting…!! \^^/

  8. Noelle

    Yoon Su is an idiot. She can feel sympathetic but keep your distance from the guy you told to buzz off like two days earlier. Let someone else be his shoulder, dang.

  9. Yuki

    I officially hate the dance professor now. She is not consoling Shin but confusing him instead!! I almost want to jump up and slap her in the face if I can.

  10. 10 imoan.naomi

    I’ve never watched a “youth melodrama” before. Can someone name some others so I can have some sort of reference point. I tend to think of youth and angst as being pretty synonymous so the term youth-melodrama seems sorta redundant to me.

    • 10.1 nonski

      have u tried watching Dream High? one of the awesomest i’ve ever seen!

      • 10.1.1 Molly

        Agreed, Dream High delightfully exceeded my expectations and was a great one!

    • 10.2 adney

      Dream High because the story is awesome. You just need to ignore bad acting from a few of them, ahaha

    • 10.3 imoan.naomi

      I have seen Dream High actually, I just didn’t realize that was melodrama. When I hear “melo”, I tend to think more along the lines of Bad Guy, WISFC, Ripley or something like that. So far the angst-o-meter on this show isn’t bad, and the emotions feel pretty realistic, although I’m not too fond of the parents’s past.

      • 10.3.1 CreamPuffs

        Dream High wasn’t a melodrama; I’m pretty sure it was more of a romantic comedy.

  11. 11 V

    Awww, that’s sweet of you guys to be “keeping the recap seat warm” for kaedejun until Romance Town wraps up. Can’t wait to see what kind of new perspective a third recapped will bring to this series!

    That being said, You’ve Fallen For Me has been driving me all kinds of batty. At first it was Yoon-Su’s moping, then Shin’s, and now Kyu-Won’s. I can’t relate to any of the leads in this drama, and I rather wish the scriptwriter would just let Ki-Young usurp the whole drama. The boy has charisma, especially when he’s singing.

    • 11.1 Em

      Amen to that! Also, I’ve been waiting for his interaction with KyuWon abd hope for a loveline to ensue but i’m starting to doubt that it’s ever going to happen.

      And I really dislike the Yoonsu character from the beginning. ugh, cougar much?

      • 11.1.1 comics_gilz

        Hahahaha…i’ve been waiting for KW-KY interaction too…!! ^^ if Shin didn’t want KW…i dont think that KW should mope up since KY is there…and he’s not bad…!! ^^

        • 11.1.1.1 yoose

          iyep… KY and KW FTW!

        • 11.1.1.2 Ree

          But they’re taking FOREVER to introduce KW to Ki Young. Are they TRYING to build suspense, or are they just like, “Meh, whatever. He’s a second lead”?!!

    • 11.2 spark67

      Thank God! I thought I was the only one who thought that Ki Young would be heaps better interacting with Kyu Won in two ways: (1) if there is to be a love triangle, as is expected in most romance/comedy dramas in Korea, it would have made sense that Kyu Won fall for Ki Young first since she played the accompaniment when Ki Young was finally convinced to sing. Then Kyu Won’s frequent interactions with Ki Young either on or off campus thereafter would be justified and although Kyu Won still has to be Shin’s slave for the month, her constant praise of Ki Young may in time, intrigue Shin since Ki Young actually sings BETTER than Shin (CN Blue Jong Hwa). That’s just the reality of it. It would have made the contrasts between these characters that much more interesting with Shin beginning to be irritated that Kyu Won is so ga-ga over Ki Young, which…could lead to an interest in her.

      Or, (2) I wouldn’t mind Shin being out of the picture altogether and letting Kyu Won have a loveline with Ki Young in the first place. The brief moments of Ki Young was enough to impress me both with his acting and his presence on camera. Plus the boy can SING, you know what I mean? Good Lord, when he sang “A Goose’s Dream”, I just about fell out of my chair with awe. He could definitely be the rival that Shin deserves.

      • 11.2.1 spark67

        Ooh, sorry – the song that Ki Young sang was “If I Leave” originally sang by opera soprano Sumi Jo. I was listening to “A Goose’s Dream” while I typed up my comments earlier.

      • 11.2.2 cassandra

        Hallelujah, you’ve said it again. Please let Kiyoung and Kyu Won interact in the next 10 episodes and just let the ballerina rest already she is tired and I get exhausted every time she appears with Shin.
        Let the rivalry between the youngsters begin for after all isn’t it what the story is about…YOUNG LOVE– Crazy FIRST LOVES.

      • 11.2.3 jek

        since Ki Young actually sings BETTER than Shin (CN Blue Jong Hwa), wtf

  12. 12 berry

    thanks for the recap – you are always super speedy :)

  13. 13 vivyip

    i’m so glad for the recap. (thank you for putting it out so quickly! ^_^) I watched the raw and had to guess.

    Hmm…I wonder if it’s on purpose that the profs’ reconciliation was so straightforward…

    I mean, take a look at the polygons/angles/subplots(?):
    basic #1: shin-dance prof-director
    basic #2: shin-kyuwon-director

    background #1: glasses prof-dance prof-director
    background #2: boeun-drummer boy-heejoo
    background #3: shin dad- shin mom-kyuwon dad

    possible #1: kiyoung-kyuwon-shin
    possible #2: drummer boy-heejoo-kiyoung

    highly unlikely #1: heejoo-shin-kyuwon
    highly unlikely #2: kyuwon-shin-dance prof

    that’s not including

    the 100 yr festival itself
    or
    the shin mom-kyuwon dad-grandfather issues

    Everything needs to be tied up within… 16 episodes?!

    that’s like…maybe 2 episodes for each couple(?) to reconcile/resolve itself, sorta. (So it’s a good thing the profs reconciled quickly…and now kyu-won’s dad will be able to cleanly chase shin’s mom…now only if gramps cooperated….)

    I’m also thinking that the musical will be less dance prof’s/director’s story and more of shin’s/kyuwon’s story.

    (and episode 5 made me think that drummer boy has a good chance of heejoo if the director had a similar experience in the past)

    I’m looking forward when shin’s gonna grovel towards kyu-won. She deserves to be chased.

    on a simpler/less convoluted note: i wish episode 7 had some previews…

    • 13.1 Alyssa

      You’re very good in your correlation! I’m no brainer when it comes to this.

      thanks

      • 13.1.1 comics_gilz

        hahaha…i really love your polygons/angles/subplots… ^^ i’m also thinking that all this plots and angels can’t be compressed into 16 episodes.. but…can’t wait to see where KW and Shin end up to…and y so many subplots here and there??

        REALLY WISH THERE IS EPISODE’S 7 PREVIEW..!! T.T

    • 13.2 Nikki

      I strongly agree with you vivyip.
      we need preview even only for ep 7.. :)

  14. 14 honey

    Thanks a lot girlfriday! I was so looking forward to this.

  15. 15 lovely

    many people didn’t understand why kyu-won was so upset but i completely related with her.
    when you care about someone you get upset if they’re making bad decisions and their emotions really do sway yours.
    when a close friend of mine kept going back to his horrible girlfriend (very similar to the shin-yoonsu relationship) it made me so upset that I cried.
    even though it had nothing to do to me I couldn’t help but be affected.
    that’s what I love about this drama. It’s a drama for youth and I can relate to the issues the same way older woman can relate to dramas like I need romance.

  16. 16 Alyssa

    hahahaha… park shin hye is now a grown-up lady!

    I’ve seen her in her previous dramas – stairway to heaven, tree of heaven, etc – and previously, every time she’s interviewed she would tell of her frustration in acting a role where she’s in-love. according to her, its the most difficult role and she said that Directors would scold her because she couldn’t act the role.

    Now, hahahahaha… she can really act the role of girl-in-love….

    shin hye… are you acting now based on experience?

  17. 17 Manaíra

    Ahhh,como a cada episodio me faz gostar mais desse casal *__*
    Contando as horas pra o outro episodio =)

  18. 18 awww

    I like jb and gf’s recaps, esp their comments. Please don’t leave this drama!! why not the 3 of you split this drama please xD

    • 18.1 green tea

      Noo, don’t stop recapping!! Can’t you both keep doing this drama? City Hunter will end soon anyways (sniff T_T)

    • 18.2 Ani

      Agreed. (No offense to kaedejun of course)

      • 18.2.1 awww

        you guys are really quick recappers and there won’t be a lot of dramas left to recap anyways D:

  19. 19 monsterlover

    Oh man maybe this will take a new turn and KyuWon as mentioned is just being swayed by Shin’s emotions, maybe she will finally try and do her own thing as in do her best in the musical and get the leading role which will put her in contact with the leading guy and BAM a new loveline to be formed. This might make Shin realize that he;s been taking KyuWon for granted 😀

    *At least that’s what i hope happens XD

    • 19.1 yume

      you know that sounds great to me 😀

      i hope she stops chasing shin around and start focusing on the play so she can get the lead role and blow his socks off! it would be good for her because she belongs on stage :)

    • 19.2 comics_gilz

      i love that too..!! ^^

  20. 20 crazedlu

    yes. please bring back the gukak vs. rock! hee. and i totally agree with wanting kyu won’s angst and emotions to be her own. that’s probably my only issue with her current moped up self.

  21. 21 laya

    Thanks for the recap!

  22. 22 suzi q

    I just absolutely love the music.

    I think Lee Hyun Jin steals the thunder from Jung Yong Hwa. I’m impressed with Hyun Jin’s singing and tearing up the screen. I’ve seen him previously in A Good day for the Wind to Blow. You can tell he is a more experienced actor than Yong Hwa.

    I think the dance teacher scenario is boring everyone to tears and that could be the reason for the low ratings. They should Dump it and go for a love triangle between Kyu Won, Shin, and Ki Young. Please, I hope they change directions because the plot is going down the tubes.

    What’s with the mom who doesn’t tell her son whose funeral he going to attend? Surprise funeral. This is too wacky.

    I love Park Shin Hye in You’re Beautiful, but her personality in this drama is like a dish rag. I hope she stops moping and get some better storyline.

  23. 23 Merewen

    I find the Kyu-won utterly annoying. I can’t place my finger on it. Wait… I find all the female characters in this drama annoying. I really wanted to like it. :(

    • 23.1 Merewen

      Edit* Kyu-won character utterly annoying

      Oh and another question… Is there an unspoken rule that females can’t sing with the same amount, if not more emotion then the males? I was watching ep 4 and I was pretty much underwhelmed with the females singing skills. Even the girl that’s supposed to be the triple threat.

      Someone break it down for me.

  24. 24 almontel

    i thought i was really going to see more interaction between our couple, but the end of this ep just made me HATE the writer for some reason…and the iceprincess!
    when are we going to see KW stop being the stalker? i mean i know she likes him and has hurt her numerous times and yet she keeps coming back to be by his side…
    i’m hoping next week we’ll see a positive development to Kyuwon’s personality. i want to see her be more focused on her work and study and to stop clinging to Shin.
    this time around i want Shin to start missing her for always being there and cheering him up…
    Fighting!!!
    and i do agree that ShinHye was great during those ‘angsty scenes’ esp the end…the heartache of seeing the person you like in the arms of another girl!

    • 24.1 Anne

      I don’t like how they got her cling to him either, I was looking forward to the reversal him liking her then they pull this crap. I hope I start to feel the heart string because right now I’m annoyed with her over the top in his face I do anything you want behavior so submissive and that the kind of girl I hate the most.

      • 24.1.1 Merewen

        I’ll co-sign this.

      • 24.1.2 rin

        Nana is clinging to City Hunter too 😛 He keeps pushing her away but she keeps clinging.

        • 24.1.2.1 soserious

          Nana’s case is a little different because Yoon-sung likes her too.

          • 24.1.2.1.1 rin

            She doesn’t know that he likes her, but she clings to him. Even if he didn’t like her, she would cling to him.

        • 24.1.2.2 hmi4

          don’t single out nana. we all would cling onto CH

          • 24.1.2.2.1 Brandi

            Ha ha where’s the like button?

        • 24.1.2.3 Silver

          Nana may be clinging on to CH but I never felt like her character got lost in the process of chasing the guy. All throughout she remained true to herself, which, really, is all I’m asking of Kyu Won here, whereas what KW has done this past episode seems rather out of character. What? She ditches practice to go chase after a guy who had told her to get lost just the day before? Yeah, sure.

          • 24.1.2.3.1 rin

            Well, you have to remember. They are youngsters. Nana is older. Kyu Won doesn’t even realize she’s in love. She’s just following her heart. Whereas Nana knows she’s in love. It’s like…”why do I feel such pain?”, “why do I feel so sad that he’s sad”, “I want to be there for him”, and she runs to him.

          • 24.1.2.3.2 Cherry

            sigh…i’m hating how dependent she is , but try to remember when you were her age in high school beginning of college/ first love/crush? we went with our emotions. especially us girls. as young adults now in our mid 20’s or higher we can think back and call ourselves idiots for either secetively wanting to know who THAT Guy is talking to, who HE likes, and even which class he is in right now. This is K, her first ever major crush, i’ll give her a benifit of doubt – i’m just hoping she snaps out of it, but knowing this is a Kdrma for the youth, her devoted stalking will win over S…not saying i like it. Makes us girls/women seem “weak” like if we live for the one we like, neglect ourselves, stalk him – we will find happiness.

    • 24.2 rence

      thanks for the recaps..

      watching ep 6 via live streaming last night gave me mixed feelings..i just couldnt understand where the flow of the story is going and what has become of shinhye’s character..i remember in an earlier episode when she told woori’s character that she wont take LS if she gave him to her but look what happened to her..she ate those words..all she does is chase and run after the cold-hearted LS…i like her old self, the one who is feisty yet adorable..as much as i understand that he already fall for LS but could she have enough pride to stop stalking him…its stupid and annoying especially if the guy does not want your presence..I love park shin hye and she is a great actress..she could convey lots of emotions and so i think that its a great waste of talent for her with this character…

      could the writer and the director just concentrate on the students’ dream (like dream high)…what happened to the fusion of the traditional and modern instruments…what really is the synopsis of this drama?
      can’t you make the OTP shine more? can’t you just stop the scenes of the dance prof and the director…
      when can we see KW’s interaction with KY?….

      episode 7 is crucial, so i hope that if they are contemplating of script revision, they have to do it with better scriptwriters and PLEASE, concentrate on the OTP, if there is a love triangle, love square, whatever, do it now..stop focusing on the adults…this is a youthful drama…i love its being cool and breezy

      • 24.2.1 comics_gilz

        wow…..such direct emotions… ^^ but i second your comment…!! ^^

        • 24.2.1.1 rence

          sorry, i got carried away…didn’t sleep well last night after watching ep 6 live…hahaha

          • 24.2.1.1.1 comics_gilz

            hahaha…i just woke up at 5am this morning to download the raw version…. ^^ can’t understand what they’re saying…but still hoping some “concentrate on the OTP” scene…but to bad……hope episode 7 give us what we want…!! Hwaiting!! ^^

          • 24.2.1.1.2 Nikki

            I totally agree with you Rence, i also can’t sleep last night imagining how would ep 7 turned out to be…
            i was even imagining that in ep 7, Kyu Won and Ki Young would get the lead roles in the performance, giving then time to spend time together, practicing for the show (causing KW to stop chasing after Lee Shin) , and develop crushes towards each other…

            hope what we hope for ep 7 would happen

            the writers of this drama should surf the net and see the viewers’ feedback to make alterations and to develop a more interesting story Line…

            and one more thing, Ki Young should be the Second Lead since he’s young, cute, and talented.. :)

  25. 25 Anu

    Thank u guyzz for recapping this series!! I have read Kdjn’s recaps bfr…so I believe she will do a gud job!!

    I wanna know what happens nxt!!!…..cn’t wait for the 7th…#impatient 😉

  26. 26 rumba lumba

    the lead guy is the 2nd biggest, most unemotional stiff since Kim Hyun Joong of Playful kiss. well, actually he’s the 4th. the 2nd goes to Suzy of Dream High, and the thirdd goes to Taecyeon of Dream High/Cindy Sister.

    • 26.1 spark67

      It may partly be because Shin’s character is somewhat similar to the character of Tae Kyung, played by actor Jang Geun Suk in “You’re Beautiful”. If you recall, Tae Kyung also had that prissy, arrogant, you-all-irritate-me kind of character. The problem is that Yong Hwa doesn’t convey the subtleties of emoting very well, and all the viewer gets is irritation at Shin’s character. It’s like Yong Hwa has blended his own character and Tae Kyung’s character on “You’re Beautiful” and the results are not good. I mean, he’s ok as mediocre goes, but if he’s the lead, he’s not doing a very good job convincing me that his character is someone I should be sympathizing with.

  27. 27 annieee

    i love the youthful, breezy vibe of the drama and that sucked me in for the first 3 episodes or so. but now that the musical and chasing-young-dreams storyline has taken a backseat, im not sure this drama will live up to its potential (was hoping for this to be smth like dream high no.2). of course, im all for the love square angst and romantic crushes, but why does kyu-won have to be so mopey? and there’s still not enough OTP screentime for me (shin has to get over dish-rag ballerina lady like RIGHT NOW). i hope shin and kyu-won being next-door neighbors will give us more forced-proximity hijinks, and please, bring back the Rock vs. Gukak stuff!
    also, wouldn’t it be awesome if they developed another love line with kyu-won and ki-young, just to give shin a run for his money? xpp

    • 27.1 goldlilys

      I wanted this drama to be like a combination of You’re Beautiful, Dream High and Full House. It was close in the first 4 episodes. … but the latest 2 is disappointing me.

      I thought they were going to start having KY already be part of the training … but that lasted 2 episodes just to get him on stage?!!! So slowwwww. With KY there and getting close to GW, LS would feel jealous. But noooo, all the angst are still coming from the debbie downer prof and it’s annoying me.

      The writing better change next week or I’m totally going to put this drama in the trash.

      Also, it’s not that Yong Hwa can’t act … it’s more likely because he has no chemistry with the teacher. I just don’t see it. But he lights up wit PSY and especially since PSY is a really good natural actress. Whenever she’s on the screen, you follow her.

      Ahh when is the real love triangle going to start?!!!

  28. 28 guest

    I really don’t know what’s wrong with this drama. I don’t know much about dramas and films, i just watch and if i like it, i like it. i don’t know how to critic a drama, unlike most of you.

    for me I love it! I love Park Shin Hye and the Director. I love the songs – I even bought from yesasia part 1 of the OST. i tried to watch this live too, although I can’t understand their language. i’m refreshed and I can relax. I feel the emotions of the youth and I remembered my own youth 5-6 years ago.

    i agree that they need to bring back the gukak vs rock.

    but, if the rating is low – is there a possibility that it will be halted? then there won’t be any gukak vs rock.

    shin hye really tried her best to even learn gayageum…

    I’m sad!

  29. 29 xxies

    what is the song at the end of this episode?

    • 29.1 Areli

      good question! someone knows whats the name of the song?

  30. 30 jeeves

    i hope this is the end of shin’s angst-sy moments—please let it move forward to some bright-fun and flirty scenarios from my three anticipated characters Ki Young, Shin and Gyu Won— please let it on next week’s eps.—thanks for the recaps- :)

  31. 31 junie

    I love it and looking forward to see more of Ki-Young vs Kyu-Won….gosh, they look good together (I guess, though I still love KW & LS). Thanks for the recap!
    I hope it stays in the level of youth melodrama and not turning its direction towards tons of angst and moans….please…we need something refreshing and not too heavy…..IT’S SUMMER!

  32. 32 Banu

    Ahhh Right now i’m like F You Shin..
    Also that teacher should stop confusing him ever sec.

  33. 33 pitopazano

    oh gosh, seriously… after watching today’s episode…i really REALLY want kyuwon to stop liking lee shin and have lee shin realize that he likes kyuwon…

    and then we can see lee shin work to get kyuwon to like him again.

    and i’m getting annoyed with the dance teacher once again…she’s wavering…so indecisive. ugh.

    and who else thinks that the two main leads for the musical will end up being heejoo and kiyoung?

    • 33.1 rin

      Lee Shin does like Kyu Won slightly. He’s just not over his crush with the teacher yet. If he didn’t like Kyu Won, he would have pushed her away like those other girls he ignores. But he doesn’t ignore Kyu Won. That’s a big difference.

      • 33.1.1 comics_gilz

        yup…i think that is the case with LS…but LS did not get over his childish crush yet…so…that’s why KW feel pain since she realise her feeling for Shin first…

        One thing i can’t put my mind of off it is…in the rain scene…where KW shout at Shin and Shin shout back…y does Shin suddenly took the gugak from KW???? is it some kind of Shin’s way to tell KW that he actually didn’t want to be alone that time???

        Hahahaha…actually…i hope that Shin turn back and hug KW at that time ^^ kekeke..but…that sure didn’t happen..

        • 33.1.1.1 rin

          I think he was being nice to her? He jokes she’s really strong to carry it around all the time. He realizes the gugak is heavy. He was just being an ass not helping her carry it. But since she seems to there for him, he probably helped her carry it in gratitude. I don’t think Lee Shin is that bad a person. He’s just doesn’t like girls clinging to him for his looks. And KW doesn’t seem to be nice to him for his looks, so he accepts her instead of kicking her away. He only makes fun of her to tease her or challenges her to push her forward. He does say some arrogant stuff to her, but I think it’s more in a teasing sort of way. Kind of like Gilbert pulling on Anne’s hair in “Anne of Green Gables” but he actually likes her and wanted to get her attention.

          • 33.1.1.1.1 kris

            i extremely agree with you..LS has not yet realized it but he has sort of admiration already for KW..its just that his feelings for the bland dance prof is greater, haha

          • 33.1.1.1.2 comics_gilz

            @rin maybe what u’re saying is true…Shin is not a bad person, and he actually feel quite comfortable with KW that’s why he carry the gugak…but i’m thinking more to the psychological side….when someone that angry and that sad AND do not want anyone to disturb him….i don’t think he could be polite or remember his manner well…. ^^ moreover, he always mean to her…. thus, im thinking that he said that he didn’t want her company, BUT he took the gugak so that she have no choice but to follow him….something like that… ^^ and i’m sure he knew the gugak is heavy…that’s y he took it…??

          • 33.1.1.1.3 Plume

            So glad to see “anne of Green Gables” here :D. Yeah, it’s sort of the same situation… but on the other side, Gilbert did have some sort of humour which none of the male character in this drama has.

            I don’t think the arrogant side of Shin’s character really fits Yong Hwa. He looks like a genuinely nice guy when he’s smiling, unlike Jang Geun Suk who does have an edgier side…

          • 33.1.1.1.4 Cherry

            I also think he is being nice to her. he See her as a friend and not as a possible girlfirend or love/crush interest. when she yelled at him, i think he realized that she cares for him as a person and not just his looks, and that is why he helped her carry the gugak.

          • 33.1.1.1.5 comics_gilz

            @Cherry Hurm…i think u’re right….since he see her as a friend, her scold makes him mad…but he knew that it is the truth…and he could feel she care for him…so…he can’t ignore her…that’s y he help her carry the gugak…. ^^

      • 33.1.2 mrmz

        Well she really did attract his attention in some ways
        Its not just that he only didn’t push her away, but he pulled her to his side. In the beginning he was the one who got her phone number, ordered her around, and cared so much about competing with her as his equal. If he wasn’t even slightly attracted to her, he would’ve done none of the above. Even if the competition was about his own pride, he wouldn’t have cared to ordered her around. Or maybe cuz he’s used to girls like him but she didn’t (show it) right away, he wanted to attract her attention to him

        • 33.1.2.1 comics_gilz

          “Or maybe cuz he’s used to girls like him but she didn’t (show it) right away, he wanted to attract her attention to him”

          hahaha…yup…i think that’s one of the point….^^ he tent to hate all girls that flopped around him…but can’t seem to ignore KW since she’s different…and gradually attracted to her without him realizing it.. ^^

    • 33.2 Nikki

      for me, i like Ki young and Kyu Won to be the main leads in the musical, cause they’ll surely make a good duet (i’ve heard them, since i played i played ep5 part 4 and five at the same time, at the part where Ki Young sings at the bar and Kyu Won singing at their rehearsal)
      ^.~

      i also have ulterior motives for that ~for Lee Shin to have jealousy over the cute cool talented guy Ki Young~ 😉

      • 33.2.1 comics_gilz

        that’s what i want too… ^^ i really hope episode 7 bring us closer to what we want of this drama.. 😀

  34. 34 sam soon-ah

    I really loved Kyu Won in the first 3 episodes but then she started annoying me cause she was always running after Shin. Come one women!!!
    Act like you don’t care even if you do…Play it out like Geum Jan di you most likely will get your Go Jun Pyo running after you^ ^. A great character is someone with spunk and a backbone.
    I understand she is developing feelings for Shin but come on she just looks desperate to me. Hopefully they will give Ki Young more parts because he is by far the deepest character on this drama.

    • 34.1 luliqz1

      i know that KW was running after Shin but no in the Oh Hani way if you know what i mean, remember the coffee scene where she realized that he bought her coffee when she saw him she was all happy but then she took her time to act cool and not let him know how happy she was

    • 34.2 rin

      It’s not desperation. If someone you love is hurt, would you try to comfort him/her? Even if that person tells you to go away, you know that person is just upset. Can you leave someone you care about alone who is hurt and who you think really needs to be consoled? If the person you love is hurt, would you skip class to try and comfort him/her? Or just ignore because you think class is more important than friendship or love? Kyu Won feels Shin’s pain and wants to help him through it. But in the process she’s getting hurt too because it’s a one-sided love. Would you abandon a one-sided love to help yourself? Or run head on to help a friend in need?

  35. 35 biankoy

    Yay for Kiyoung!!!

    I wasn’t going to watch this drama but because of dramabeans I got interested and now I’m going to watch it!!! All because of Kiyoung!!! And Seuk Hyun

  36. 36 YY

    Ways to relieve our frustrations:

    1. Steal Harry’s wand and change Mopey Ballerina into a mop.

    2. Buy Mopey B a no-return ticket to Timbaktu.

    3. Get a restraining order out on Mopey B to make sure she doesn’t come within a foot of Shin.

    4. Burn all Mopey B’s umbrellas.

    5. Bury that accursed necklace six feet under.

    6. Burn down the coffee machine.

    7. Barricade the open ledge with barbed wire to prevent KW from leaving coffee there.

    8. Send the rude sister to military school. For 10 years. Without holidays.

    Am I the only one who had You’re beautiful flashbacks while watching this episode?
    1) Kyu-won looking for the necklace = Mi-nam looking for the ring in the pool
    2)The way Kyu-won says “Shin is crying” is the same Mi-nam says “My star is crying” (after Tae-kyung had a heartbreaking conversation with his Mom)

    I know I watched YAB too many times LOL

    • 37.1 moidiom

      I saw the similarities, too. It’s like this drama is literally trying to answer all the questions from You’re Beautiful. I loved the first four episodes, but not the last two. I find myself rooting for the pairing of Kyu-won and the director. They make a much nicer couple!!! The grandpa’s approval of the director is especially hilarious.

      • 37.1.1 hajroutta

        I feel the same ! I think Kyu-won and the director ‘s look sooo cute together ^^

  38. 38 bjharm

    “though it’s hard not to hate anyone who makes Kyu-won’s life difficult, I do appreciate their youthful journeys into and out of love”
    lol why not just say the guy’s an a##hole with a prince complex and be done with it. Frankly I do not find Lee Shin very likeable at all, I am not a girl but if a guy approached me like he did the lady teacher, I would freak out and call the police. How many times does she have to say no before he gets the idea to back off? What next get her drunk and sleep with her so to prove he a man and make her his? Of course as he was brought up with no father that suppose to make us feel sorry and forgive him for being a jerk. Still it pretty classic setup prince type guy would think he can walk on water and he the only one if the world to feel pain and hurt meet simple but spunky ‘plain’ girl and she changes him for the better. Just hope that starts soon

  39. 39 asianromance

    Thanks for the recap! I’m not watching this, but it’s really nice to know what happens!

  40. 40 Taohua

    I’ve been complaining on my tweeter feed about this (sorry y’all)…but seriously is this the same writer who wrote the KBS Drama Special “What Happened to Trader Kim Cheol-Su”? Because that was super well-written…and this is all over the place. And which writer limits five minutes or less to the most interesting and complex character in the series? Does that even make sense?

    Also someone please tell Lee Soon Jae to give JYH a phone call…it would be greatly</i) appreciated.

    Also are you listening PD-nim? More Gi-yeong please. And more Seok Hyun time with GY and GW. I promise I won't complain about your love for whirling/shaking camerawork ever again…well not too much anyway.

  41. 41 Hang

    For me, two rain scenes in this episode are the most important, and most beautifully captured, in getting the lead actor and actresses’ emotions developed. This episode is definitely sentimental and brings me to tears at times. Since her heart has spoken out loud, I hope Kyu-won will have some actions in the coming episodes. I will also look forward to Shin’s reaction. He has been playing cool (or cold?) with her so far except for the moment of their “first connection” in the first rain scene. Gosh, I am officially hooked on this drama.

  42. 42 cutiepotato

    Thx for your recap,I love this drama because park shin hye,so please please give a lot of love for kyu won don’t let her always running after shin I hate that (•͡˘ε˘ •͡“) kyu won just be with ki young fighting!!!

  43. 43 yuu

    I’m just waiting for more ki young’s scenes to come up. and him and kyu won to be an item, that’d be awesome.

    thanks for the recap! :)

  45. 45 rr

    thanks for the recap…i really dislike the ending and the way kyu-won chases after lee shin in this episode.it seems her life is revolving around him.bring back the feisty kyu-won that i love,pd pyo,please…and less yoon-su in the next episodes please,grrr

  46. 46 waeee

    my only complaint is…
    more lee shin/kyu won please.
    they are so cute.

    drop the dance professor… already

  47. 47 Beng

    Thanks GF! Agree with all of your comments. i want KW to spread her wings too and be independent. I’ve been thinking of what Shin will do when his dog is not following him anymore. I want a romance between KW and KY that will make Shin jealous, thereby showing some colors. I keep seeing him as a grey person. I also want to see the Rock vs. the Gukak =). I wonder who will be those that will follow Professor T? Will Shin follow him and play in his theatre instead of SH? Hmmmm, can’t wait for episode 7…

  48. 48 comics_gilz

    anyway…above else…thanks for the recaps… ^^ i really love this drama and can’t wait to watch the next episode….but i really do hope Shin will overcome with his crush and started to notice KW….at the same time, KW didn’t mope up and train harder for the musical and the female lead…her deligentness will bring her closer to Ki Young and that’s when Shin started to miss KW and gradually notice his feeling for KW…i really hope the next episode lead to this kind of plot….PD nim….pretty pleeeessssseeee….!!!

  49. 49 helen

    i think the version that jung yonghwa sang in the drama with the echoing had a very nice effect. the song that was attached to this entry sounded better than the recorded on in the ost version.

    i can’t wait until yonghwa and shinhye start having more romantic scenes together. the romance between yonghwa and the professor is wearing a little thin for me.

    • 49.1 Yuki

      I feel the same way when I listen to the ost version. I feel a bit disappointed that they changed the effects.

    • 49.2 beinghappy

      well, for me i’m loving both of the ver since he sing it nicely and the lyrics is beautiful..HEHE!!But i guess for the ost ver, they just want to “calming” the tone with accoustic touch just like when someone trying to tell his story slowly so people can capture the lyrics and sadness..the stage ver is having more effect since it for stage performance playing by the stupid band.

      this drama seem has many “controversy”, but there’s something that make me curious about this drama..where will the actual story goes among those many side characters?how will they balance the youthful excitement and melodrama part?and how will lee shin-kyuwon end up falling in love?coz i still believe, they will be together in the end..HEHE..i’ll be patiently waiting for the progression..PD Pyo fighting!!THANKS for the recap=)

  50. 50 JIW_sobangnim

    I actually feel that Ms.teacher isnt really willing to fully let go off Mr.HandsomeShin because well, he is most handsome/popular/loves her more than she deserves. They let the viewers realize her half-indifference towards his love in Episode 3 if I’m not mistaken. However,I’m cringing here because of the lack of Gyeong Jin and Gyu Won. I want him to be the prince-charming which is gonna fall for Gyu Won ASAP through rehearsals and her spunk. Then,when Shin’s gets more warm towards GyuWon,DUDDOONG! Love triangle! 😛 Who isnt thinking what Im thinking, aye? :)

    • 50.1 Beng

      i’m with you, definitely!!! i want both Gyeong Jin and Shin realize that Gyu-won is the sunshine in their dark world at the same time. Let the triangle begin in episode 7, please, please, pretty please!!!

      Also, please keep Gyu-won’s character to be cheerful despite the heartaches.

    • 50.2 kris

      i’m also with you on that…hope the writer and the director will read our insights

    • 50.3 comics_gilz

      count me in too…!! aja aja hwaiting..!! ^^/

  51. 51 emiieee_sshi

    Like many people here, I’m getting a little annoyed at the main lead girl becoming a *stalker* but I guess it shows the contrast between her two sides (the one that didn’t like Shin at the start and the one that fell in love with him) because when you are in love, you don’t realise that you’re following them around, swayed by their emotions or doing things that they tell you to do.

    I don’t think that Shin will suddenly come to a realization that he misses her if she stops being around him now because his mind is still filled with grief from both the professor’s rejection and his father’s death. Furthermore, I just feel that he doesn’t like her enough yet to miss her because the more she chases him, the more he seems to get annoyed.

    So the best thing for her to do now is to concentrate on the production and be at his side “silently” rather than trying to get his attention or pissing him off by telling him to snap out of it. Maybe by supressing her feelings a little more, he will start to see her significance.

    As for the professor, I can understand why she stopped her car and had a look at Shin…out of guilt. When she heard about the news that his father passed away, she probably felt bad for rejecting him as well. But I don’t think that she “likes” him in anyway. When she patted him on the back, it was like a mother kind of comforting. He needed that but even if it wasn’t the professor, he probably would have hugged anyone who came to him.

    Having said that, it doesn’t mean that I like the fact that she stopped her car. Maybe the writer shouldn’t have made her appear in that scene because if she just drove on, the audience might really bash her for being a heartless bi*ch. I mean, after hearing that kind of news about someone, I think I would stop the car as well to comfort him. Doesn’t mean that I have feelings for him, just that I would feel bad.

    Dammit, the script is making the story drag. If they extended it a few more episodes, the story might play out quite well but I have no clue how they plan to make the two leads fall in love with each other by the rate that they are going right now. I wanted them to fall for each other at the same time not this unrequited love that is driving my head crazy.

    The more a girl chases after a guy that doesn’t like her, the more he’ll look down upon her and take her for granted. I hope that the following episodes will transform her into a stronger character in order to match up with Shin’s cold attitude. Their personalities are contrasts which is good but I wish that this contrast is balanced.

    Looking forward to episode 7 ^^

    • 51.1 Nouastella

      From all the reactions and comment I’ve read so far,you are the only one that I think I agreed upon.

      I don’t think Kyu-won is clinging to Shin, she is emphatizing with him in his current situation.She does not even realized she is in love, just maybe like a lot.I don’t think she lost her spunky attitude.She does not give up on him, I think.Guys, she has to experience this in order for her learn lessons in love…..which is realistic.

      I don’t think that Shin ,who is so infatuated(i call it that cos that is what it is,i know from experience) would just jump suddenly from another “love” just cos she’s available, that would be kind of petty love,would it?which i don’t want to happen to the story.would it be great to slowly build up their connection to make it a genuine love really? That’s why people are complaining cos they want the two leads together immediately,,,,guys, for me that is so unrealistic.I think that scene with the rain sums up what real connection would be.

      the musical part i think will still be there, its just that they have to build the characters, in doing that some parts have to be put aside for a while.they can’t just fill every episode with it.

      another point,i think its notable that lee shin is not whining and clinging to the professor but just watching far and accepted the reality that there’s nothing he can do about his “love”.I believe that when he hug her, its for comfort and not out of his “love”.Kyu-won is just bad timing, if i would be in that situation, i would so badly need the comfort.Imagine bottling up your emotions with no one to talk it out.

      People are so busy wanting the things they want to happen or see in the drama but not to see the real things that the drama wants to convey which reflects real life.For me it, its a story telling us or pointing us to some things that are lessons in life…..

      Come on…..give Shin a break, give the PD a break….even Kyu-won…..they are telling story here, just hear it out patiently…..(though I think I’m on a lonely journey here).

      And one of the my biggest issue that I want to point out to those acting critics……hey……are you really watching Yonghwa’s acting or are you just biased just because he’s an k-pop “idol”(though i don’t think he is in that category considering he does not dance).Come on, he improved a lot here though we can’t consider it as award winning.

      • 51.1.1 Jayne

        Oh gosh. Thank you, thank you for post. I agree with you completely.

        On Kyuwon – I don’t think she’s a stalker either and she has not lost her spunky character. Spunky is following your heart and your feelings, not hiding them. And Kyuwon is doing just that.

        On Shin – he’s just as spunky. He likes the professor and he’s not afraid to admit it. And since the professor tells him no, he lets it go. For anyone who ever been in love, just how do you expect a person to let go of someone you love so much in a few days?? Of course he’ll mope and he’ll be angry. Added to that, his dad passed away. I think his reaction is realistic and completely in line with how a 20 year old will act.

        On Yonghwa’s acting – for the critics out there who says he’s stiff and wooden and what-not, are we watching the same drama? He may not be top notch but he’s improved so much. And this is only his 2nd drama and to be able to show this much emotion (esp in Ep5&6) deserves praise. His acting is subtle and not over-the-top. True, there are some parts where he could show a bit more emotion but overall, I would say good job. I think he portrayed Shin really well.

        • 51.1.1.1 luvmydramas

          The problem with Yonhwa at this point is not his acting – he hasn’t really been given a chance. They have just made his character pretty stiff and unlikeable. No chance to show his comic or softer side except when stalking the teacher – which is just hard to take. I think he will look a lot better when they have him interacting more with Kyowon. They are much cuter together.

  52. 52 Jo

    sigh, I really just don’t like this drama. It feels so shallow or something…so….fake. Of course, drama’s always is some heightened form of imagination/ “reality” but this one feels like a manhwa or anime or something. Overacting, dramatic, etc. ew. :( I wish it was better.
    But I do love Spy Myungwol.

      are you watching the drama itself or another drama?its seems like your describing another drama or maybe you read the recaps?

      your comments are far from facts and just plain disliking……..I suggest you just watch the drama you wanted and comment on it not reading another drama’s recaps and then being negative(while its obvious you don’t know what your talking about).

      If you have nothing to say constructive, then comment anything.

      Why are you on this site anyway if you don’t like it?

    burn Mopey Ballerina burn!
    She is the only one I hate! 6 episodes about her and her love, urg! I love this drama but Playful kiss, You are beautiful were much better! Lee Shin is sad for 3 episodes and doesn’t even try to let that stupid dance teacher go! She doesn’t love you, what’s to hard to understand? I really, really hope this story changes a little bit with less of the Ballerina story or else she could turn into the main character!

  54. 54 Notty

    I watch this drama bec in YAB they can’t be together. I really want the two fell in love in the drama. But the dance professor (I dont know she is second lead or What) makes things complicated . I really hate her. Want to kick her out of the world.

  55. 55 salma

    I agree with Nouastella to see or think this story in depth not just love story come with kiss then fight and in the end the both will be happy . Heartstrings is full of drama a beautiful drama not easy as i thought and not happy make me thinking what next and also to do scripts in mind which make me i want to answer many questions . I am sorry the people who disappointed want love story only with PSH and yonghwa they wished them to be to gether ……..etc , But what about real life I think i believe the story in this and isn’t easy to accept the love between lee shin and professor but is it happening in our life but why are we denied here and some guys think that Kw is annoying to follow him but can i ask you all one question what do you do if you see someone you knew him barely got deeply hurt or has problem do you leave or just follow to know what happen and keep what hurting him away ? this Story un like other stories i watched so I wish to see ep 7 t o see what Next ????????????

    • 58.2 walkingegg

      Nope. I don’t think so, I think all the chasing stuff of KW to LS in this ep is just she’s so care about him and want to comfort him after his heart broken rather than she want to gain the love from him.

      Just don’t see things only with your eyes but with your heart and you will understand people more.

  59. 59 vrosemarie

    I’m totally hooked!!! I love all the cast, even the three witchy demons are hilarious to watch (OH ROMEOO!!!). Min Hyuk, Ki Young, Bu Won and Hee Ju are all a delight to watch too. =D

    The only things that bug me are the coincidental meetings they have sometimes. At night. And with no one else around, Gyu Won will be able to walk in on something important. Lol! The parents’ story is pretty boring too but the grandpa is so cute! I love cute grandparents in dramas!

    I listen to Lee Shin’s Because I Miss You and Min Hyuk’s Star every day until the next episode, I’m that obsessed with this.

    Maybe what it needs is a reeeally good cliffhanger to keep us on our toes for next week. Wish the ratings were better but it will probably be a cult hit as it’s so popular online!

    To the viewers and to those who reads the recaps, i found this is an opinion posted by the admin of the fan facebook of You’ve Fallen for Me.I felt that the admin was kind of frustrated by the reactions of viewers and critics. The opinion was written by a forumer(not sure the right term) in soompi thread not by the admin of the FB page.

    Anyway, like the admin, it made me realized what I was feeling while watching the drama…I can’t explain why I wanted to stick to it and keep watching…To each to his/her own opinion so don’t bash the writer.It’s well written anyway without criticizing the hard core critics and “negatives”.

    I hope the author doesn’t mind sharing this…….I just feel the need to explain how i feel also, to which the author exactly explains and sums it. Thank you CATCHER!!!

    You’ve Fallen For me Fan Facebook:

    i found an amusing reaction from one of the forumer @ soompi.. i find her point of view somehow enlightening my mind… i just don’t know with you guys if you agree to what this forumer says..but for me,i cannot agree more coz she already speak almost what’s on my mind…pls try reading this tho.. and share your reactions too..thanks! :)

    PS.just would like to remind you this is just one of the point of view that i perhaps agreed and i know all of us have different opinions,and you’re entitled for it.. you may find some of the sentences here contradictory with your opinion BUT take it easy as she’s just only expressing herself..either way, i’m hoping no bashing of this opinion,coz you have your own too.. :) thanks!

    catch22blue @ Heartstrings soompi thread

    Here is another essay of mine. Hope you don’t mind. LOL.

    After watching the latest 2 episodes, I can understand why many people dislike the drama, some even find it dragging and annoying, which is perfectly normal, because this drama needs people with heart and patience and sympathy to accompany with on its journey. Or else, it’s gonna be one heck of a lonely ride.

    In Heartstrings, I can see the director/scriptwriter’s personal experiences in it. Why, you might ask? Because they’ve experienced heartaches, headaches and most importantly, life itself. So when they bring their knowledge, intentions, and hopeful thoughts into their dramas, be it World Withins, Coffee House, or Heartstrings, we need to nurture and respect them as if we are being taught something, regardless of whether we need it or not.

    On a side note, we rarely see a character who gives up his one-sided love and fight against his will to stop, stop loving someone. I can see Lee Shin is trying. At the first attempt, he failed. So he had to confront the girl of his dream and displayed such childish behaviour, because for once, he was not angle. “I’m also a grown man”. It’s a typical reaction to see from a guy when his pride is crushed, isn’t it? But sadly, by doing so, it reinforced the fact that he wasn’t, isn’t, ready to bridge the age gap between the professor and he.

    Whereas, in most of the dramas I’ve seen, lots of girls and guys either persist, whine, plan, or do anything to make the person change his/her mind. Lee Shin, to my amusement, didn’t, or isn’t doing that (or so, I’m praying).

    Instead, he stands quietly in his practice room, looking out the window, looking at his lifeless face, and unabling to move one.

    Instead, he looks at his love being in love with someone else from aside, and walks away in silence, knowing there’s nothing he could do.

    That, requires real strength and courage. That, to me, what makes the drama real.

    Lee Shin struggled with his wounded pride, but he prevailed against his ego. Doesn’t it need a little of heart from us, the viewers, my friends?

    On another note, I personally don’t expect to see him jumping from one love to the next in a couple of episodes, just because the first one doesn’t reciprocate and the next one is more than willing. If he was like that, it’d just be another typical K-drama that I occasionally watch but don’t wish it was one of Pyo’s works. Speaking of the man, it hurts to see him stating that he wishes to change his nickname from “low rating director” to “popular appeal director” (cr. dramabeans). Please Pyo, just stay true to who you are. Surely there aren’t that many favor your works, but there are people who appreciate your way of telling stories. I love Coffee House so much, not because of the leads, but because of the angst between Eun Yong and Jin Soo are unpredictable, twisted, and real. Oops, I’m off track again

    —–

    They often say hater’s gonna hate, but I can’t even use that sentence to describe a lot of members here because clearly the majority of us ain’t hater. We just kinda, hm, have different expectations. That’s all.

    For many that can’t wait for LeeShin/GyuWon’s story to progress, I highly recommend you go and watch City Hunter or something else and come back after, hm, 3 or 4 weeks, I’m sure you’d be more than pleased. For a not so young fan like I am, (I’m 28 by the way), I want to see those two slowly take their pace and blossom into something deeper than fierce love, the kind that sparkles at first and fades with time. I want to see them building their friendship before jumping on each other for kinship and all. When one passes 25, holding someone’s heart needs more than just love. It’s still important, but not as important as when one was 20. Believe me.

    So, in order to follow this kind of low pace drama, don’t we all need a little of patience? And it’s not all about the ability to wait, but also the ability to keep a good attitude while waiting.

    On my last note, it hurts me to see a lot of comments here (soompi) and there (drama blogs) getting worked up and angry at how LeeShin character is all about depression and keeping all to himself. Aren’t we too busy noticing the things we want see but can’t and forget the real things in front of our eyes? Don’t we see how LeeShin cried his heart out upon hearing about his father’s sudden death? I’m saying this because it didn’t, doesn’t, matter if it was the professor’s or GyuWon’s shoulder that LeeShin leaned on under that rainy day, the poor guy just needed someone. Can’t we stop being inconsiderate and sympathize with the guy’s pain?

    LeeShin will always end up with GyuWon, everyone. Let’s just sit back, enjoy YongHwa’s improvement, dive into characters’ struggle and pain, and eat up our selfish demands. Let the drama take its toll and enjoy while we still can.

    Talking about Yonghwa, I feel for him again because of the few positive criticism out there about his acting skills. Given his choding manner in real life, I’m impressed at how he could be soooo emotional when he needed to be. I liked the last scene so much when he cried on the professor’s shoulder. He didn’t bawl out his eyes or whimper like a baby. I liked how he cried (oh my, I’m so bad), like a real man with tears trailing down on the cheeks and trembling lips. That crying scene gives me a taste of truth and honesty for some odd reasons. Hm, never mind.

    Alright, so much for my 2 cents. I shall conclude here before I see you all again next Wednesday. Just remember, not all the time, drama is intended to make us laugh, sometimes it is intended to make us think.

    Until next time.

    • 60.2 tonia

      OMG!!! This is so true. I agree also with what she said HATERS will go on HATING!!! People are already prejudiced against YongHwa and also his character Lee Shin. People who have made up their mind in the first episode that YongHwa’s acting is stiff like a cardboard box and aren’t willing to acknowledge any changes will only see what they want to see. I for one am amazed at how he was able to tackle these last 2 episodes. I guess for the young ones they expect cute guys with cute personalities. Well it’s not always that way in life. Lee Shin may be the heartthrob of the campus but he has his flaws and weaknesses and for me that is just okay. I am liking this drama cause it just gives me enough without saturating me with so much that I won’t be able to digest it and appreciate it fully. Anyway, I am in this drama for the long haul and can’t wait to what will be transpiring between these 2 leads. I am loving YongHwa’s improvement and of course Park Shin Hye plays her role to a T.

    • 60.3 Jayne

      If there’s a like button here, I would have pressed it a million times and more. Thank you Catcher for your insights and Nouastella for sharing it.

      I believe this story is about growing up. It is different from the usual K-dramas because I think it’s realistic. This is how 20 year olds act when they are in love, upset, angry, happy etc. Above all else, I think this drama has heart. It is aptly named because it does tug at the heartstrings.

      As for the actors, all of them (especially Yonghwa and Shinhye) is doing a good job by portraying everything realistically. I hope the director and the actors won’t get discouraged by all the negative comments.

      Count me in for the long haul.

      I’m not young but I also find it dragging. We only have 10 more episodes and a lot of things to get through so the pace needs to pick up real quick. Right now, it’s like the writer and director think this is a 30-episode drama.

    What you say is right! But the drama already passed 6 episodes. There is only 10 left. But we only see is yoon su ‘s story only (YS andSH, YS andSHIN). if the story has to be like this they should choose YScharcter as female lead from start. And we won’t waste our time for watching her. This is a youthful drama but in last two episode , i can’ t find it.

    • 62.1 Nouastella

      that’s why it’s not for the impatient,as your name suggest….hahahahaha………………

      peace!!

  63. 63 testify

    Well I came also to a conclusion about this.

    In the first two episodes we got an eye- and heart-candy.
    The leaders were great, they were impressed by eachother and both are still pretty strong charachters.
    Each of them in their own way.

    And they noticed there is interesting material for friendship, for their music, or even for felling in love.

    It was Shins personality who brought them in the first place to make this bet. (which music is better.)
    And it was her personality who didn`t back off. Just because he threatened.

    And of course she is pretty much trustworthy and brave.
    And I agree with some of you, the thing what she is trying to do is not clinging on him, its trying to help him in his worse situation……because it happened always when she was around. So she saw it always with her own eyes. How can you ignore while you are tryin to get along as friends?

    And for a person like Shin , it is a big step to write a note and paste in on her forhead. (It was his wish not to see her anymore) .
    And it was him who bought a coffee with another note on it for her.
    So it was him who tried to hold on this kind of a friendship.

    Although she developed feelings for him which are more of lovefeelings than friendship, she still didn`t confess to him or did something else which would annoy him.

    And those two moments where she was caught by him, I think since she pretends always something else, (like she was thinking of a funny story….) its more amusing to him than annoying.

    But the main point is he is full with his obsession for the ballerina which leaves no room for Ky Won to come in. And another point is, he is been forced to leave his love not because he changed his heart or opinion, but because the lady doesn`t love him back. So it is just pain of rejection what he feels and this is of course not easy to handle.

    But I like it that this happened to him..
    He should taste this feeling too, since he was the one who rejects everyone who even tries to come to him. :)
    I know I am mean. :))

    The question which arise for me is, how will they find to each other?

    • 63.1 rin

      Well, however you describe it and for whatever reason. In the end its still “clinging” if someone tells you to go away and you still persist in coming back. I’m not saying it’s a bad thing. I would do the same in her position. If it was someone I cared about who was hurt…okay if they told me to go away I would give them space. I wouldn’t stick around. But I’m sure some people would keep clinging on in an attempt to help the loved one out.

    • 63.2 comics_gilz

      hurm…i love every description you point out here… especially this one…

      “Although she developed feelings for him which are more of love feelings than friendship, she still didn’t confess to him or did something else which would annoy him”

      and i know that KW can’t just ignore Shin altogether since she can see that Shin is not a bad person from few small actions he portray before…like shin said he want to hear she play the gugak again..or the time when he gave her a ride on his bike… all these small actions from him change her perspective of him and gradually makes KW closer to Shin…

      i guess that’s y KW chasing after Shin since she feel close to him and try to repay his kindness by being by his side….but the problem is…she’s falling in love with him already and it makes her can’t ignore Shin more while he is hurting…and in the process, she is hurting too…

  64. 64 testify

    1. possibility:

    She leaves this place where she was again wittness of Shins feelings…
    Full in pain but not been able to tell anyone she plays on her kayakum a sad melody in the middle of the night while others were sleeping. (except shin) He was kind of dozing and living in memories while the melody of her play touches him and lifts his soul up…..

    The next day when they meet in school she will probably give him the necklace she found and will heed to practice.
    Leaving him all by himself won`t be possible because they need a guitarist.
    So while they were waiting for him in the practiceroom, the director will look for another guy, since he predicts he won`t come.
    But then Shin appears and takes his position …..:)

    During practice he will still try to take glimpses of the ballerina , but wouldn`t be able not to see the chemistry while singing between the other lead singer and Ky Won.
    And this kind of a situation can be the keypoint of his changes……

      they call girlfriends in russia natasha….
      maybe this is the reason

  66. 66 testify

    2nd possibility:

    after witnessing this scene with shin, she might turn around and walk away, but because she was hurt and kind a lost in her feelings she walks straight into the next car which is director who nearly knocked her down.
    (what a coincidence)
    He takes her and drives her home , while trying to find out the reason for her bad mood.
    Because of the long conversation between them and because director tries to bring Ki Won in a better mood, he acts a little wierd which is been eyecatched from shin and ballerina who are also coming back….
    Althogh this moment will be akward for ballerina and Director it will bring her in a position where she can ask Shin about his situation and at least allows her to show a little careness because of his sitution….(lost of his father)

    Because of her gratitude she will laugh and greet the director whenever she sees him and this will be caught again by Shin ….which will arise his interest in her….
    Maybe just because he is annoyed because of the director…but it will lead to the next step……

Having been caught in the heavy downpour, this has caused Kyu Won to fall sick. For the 100th anniversary musical production, it’s been decided that the closing piece would be a fusion of traditional and rock music. Shin is tasked with composing this musical piece. On the other hand, Seok Hyun has Kyu won in mind as the leading actress for the musical”.

    I have never watched a show where the romantic lead is so disliked.
    Joo Won, who we all called jerk and jerky jerk was appealing because of his quirkiness and his puppy love for Key Lime, but Shin really really really is unappealing as the first lead. Mopey Ballerina is just plain annoying now.

    I appreciate trying to break all stereotypes, really I do.

    But when everyone is rooting for SH and KW to get together, I wonder if the writers knew what they were creating with this Shin guy loving MB so much. Did they think we would get behind him and his stalker ways?

    I think PSH is doing a great job. I feel bad that she is stuck in this storyline, though.

    We need more cowbell gayageum!

    • 70.1 Jane

      I wonder if it’s the actor that doesn’t make it work. Jin Soo was a much bigger jerk than Shin yet not as unappealing.

      • 70.1.1 Jomo

        I think that you are correct.
        It would be tough to resist a heart-broken Kim Soo Hyun.
        In fact, it would be a totally different show if KSH had been cast.

        I have an idea, let’s get a do-over and recast KSH as Shin!

        The low ratings are proving that putting an idol in doesn’t necessarily add up to more viewers. Although, like Playful Kiss, the show may be getting more interest overseas than in SK because of PYH…

        • 70.1.1.1 rin

          who is PYH?

          • 70.1.1.1.1 Jomo

          I couldn’t resist when you mentioned KSH. I do love that guy’s talent ALOT, but I’m thinking Kim Jae Wook could have been a candidate for this too(actor, rock singer, plays guitar). Anyway, I’m going to continue watching this. Want to see how KY’s storyline develops.

    • 70.2 rin

      I don’t think everyone dislikes the lead. I like the lead. JYH may not be doing stellar acting here but he’s doing okay for the role. His character is written as a semi-jerk. I don’t think Lee Shin is such a bad person. He’s just irritated by infatuated school girls on hormones and he has his own personal problems. I’m sure everyone has played hookey or late for class or whatnot for whatever reason. He is just a normal guy. As for Shin loving the ballerina so much. Some youngsters have fallen in love with their teachers as a crush. There’s even some controversial dramas about it such as “Majo no Jouken/Forbidden Love”. Just the teacher isn’t reciprocating the love. This isn’t something unrealistic. It’s part of growing up. Falling in love, heart break, falling in love again. SH won’t end up with KW because KW doesn’t believe in age differences. Shin doesn’t care about age differences. What’s age but a number. As for stalking, Shin isn’t the only one stalking. KW is always following Shin around. She’s stalking too!

    Love the show! It started off slow but I hope it starts to pick up soooon.

  73. 73 Lazzy

    Why do I feel like we are back to episode 4? I see no advance what so ever. O and I hope the don’t make K look like a girl with no back bone and clingy, I mean that is not what I subscribe for…. o well let’s see what wind will blow in.

  74. 74 IMPATIENCE

    I agree with you, jane.

  75. 75 Abbie

    Hmmmm. I hate to say it, but I am totally lost. I’ve been reading the recaps, but I’ve only watched the first episode. While I like the characters, there is something missing from this show. There is too much love/angst, and not enough musical practice. I hope this show gets better, I really do, because I would hate to give it up.

    That said, Thanks for the recap, Girlfriday!

    HAHAHA. the posts in here are awesomely hilarious. the bickering between fans and not fans, that is.

    the uppity, breezy pace slowed down a bit in episodes 5 and 6, but i really think it depends on episode 7, whether we should judge so harshly or not.

    i know they can still bring it!!

    *You Fallen For me*
    (A case of mistaken identity)

    Before YFFM air their first episode, I knew that it was a “youth melodrama,” so I did not let my hopes ups, in the sense that I knew it was going to be different than “Dream High,” or “You Are Beautiful,” even when it was advertise as a musical drama/rom-com/youth-melo.

    I personally like this drama a lot, since I was not expecting to compete with the other two mention dramas, but I think is a case of people trying to make YFFM something that it is not.

    From the beginning of episode #1 we know that Lee Shin, is infatuated with ballerina Yoon Soo, and the rectangle was establish, and as far as I can tell the drama while a bit slow has kept the love triangle moving quite smooth.

    I personally like that fact that he is in love with her teacher, and that, the other main lead, and second lead is taking the back burner per se, I know that a lot of people are thinking that Kyu Won is being wasted, while Yoon Soo still chasing after teacher, but from my point of view Kyu Won is not being wasted, she is the younger Female Lead who is starting to compete for the love of Yoon Soo, and the other teacher is doing what he can to rekindle what he once had with the ballerina, overall IMHO, the story line has a very logical sense of being, thus why I do like it a lot, is very relatable. I think the Korean fans, and a lot of fans abroad, are not giving Jung Yong-hwa, a chance and he is being criticize unfairly, I think from his days in, You Are Beautiful, he has improve a lot, and as for Park Shin Hye/Lee Kyu Won she definitely is no Go Mi-nam.
    Musically YFFM, is as good as DH or YAB. I do hope that the ratings get better, but IMHO the story line needs a bit more direction to make it better, I do hope the knew writers can me consistent other wise I fear another Lie To Me in the making!!!!!

    YFFM……Fighting…. : 0 }

    • 77.1 Autumn

      I agree with you. YFFM may not be what others want it to be, but for a drama that centres around youth, growth and love, it’s doing a pretty good job.

      The characters are believable and relatable. I personally like KW and S, they are not perfect but they are learning and discovering themselves, hopefully both will become someone stronger and more dependable by the end of the drama. I agree that people have been unfair towards JYH, he’s not fantastic but he’s not a block of wood either, I, for one, am happy with his reserved portrayal of S.

      I realise I was a little frustrated and impatient with some of the relationship developments before, but I am starting appreciate what they have going now, just hope that they won’t take it too slooowly. the flashbacks need to be cut down, it’s not necessary to remind us what happened less than 5 minutes ago, honestly.

      I hope they would direct the focus back onto the students and the musical production now. Yes, please bring back rock v gukak!!!

  78. 78 orange

    excuse me,somebody know the song name at last episode while kyu won crying in the rain?

  79. 79 orange

    excuse me,does anybody know the song name of the last episode?thanks

  80. 80 vivyip

    a thought occurred to me…

    jokingly, anyone want to venture a guess when shin will finally kiss kyuwon? ^_^

    it’s episode 6 already and the only person in the cast to get any form of PDA is…the dance prof! She gets teasing/flirtation in the flashbacks (from director) and a peck on the lips from shin!

    Kyuwon has….a director that ruffles her hair as if she’s a pet, a grab at her wrist to keep her from throwing money in his face (shin) and a post-it note on her forehead. (Heck, even cleaning out the drama room seems to be maybe 7-9 inches away from each other…)

    sigh…

    At this rate, the first kiss for the pair might be on the stage for the musical itself.

    oh well… (I wanna see shin grovel at kyuwon’s feet)

    • 80.1 comics_gilz

      kekeke….i’ve thinking about it too…but i guess i’m hoping for a hug first??? 😀

    • 80.2 sararamodark

      kekekeke soooooo with u man .agreeeeeeeeee

  81. 81 orange

    Does someane know the name song of the last episode 6?thanks

  82. 82 f1yh1gh10

    okay..so i love park shin hye, but did i miss an episode or something? because for some reason, kyuwon seems like she’s kind of interfering a little bit too much here..like i guess she fell for him hard after that day he sung? lol. shin liked yoonsu a lot, he’s not gonna forget her in a day. that being said, shin could not get a hint could he??? 😀 and as for yoonsu, you’re confusing the poor kid.. she shouldn’t have really come…

    i mean, this is kind of a messed up drama, but i think the mistakes are acceptable because we’ve all fallen for them. 😀 😀 😀

    and please. while shin cries over yoonsu, can we get kiyoung and kyuwon together? puleeez? that kid’s got some voice… :) :) :)

    • 82.1 comics_gilz

      i second that…!!

      “while shin cries over yoonsu, can we get kiyoung and kyuwon together?”

      😀

  83. 83 luvmydramas

    I just wish something would happen already. I am really tired of the hot for teacher scenario – get over it. It’s gone on tooooo long. I love the music – and always love Yongwha. But the story is just about buying coffee and being obnoxious, so far. I want to see some spark of relationship get going. Tired of the dance teacher who apparently forgot to pack a personality before she left home. Come on – a kid tries to put a necklace around your neck and kisses you and all you can do is stand there like a bush? I like it okay but it could be so much more. Hope the story picks up – because the stars have so much more potential.

    • 83.1 luvmydramas

      Oh, and I think a Kiyoung-Kyuwon-Shin triangle would be more interesting.

      • 83.1.1 luvmydramas

        Oh no — I have fallen and I can’t get up. Hope somebody is secretly watching through the window with some first aid spray on hand….

  84. 84 jam

    thanks for the recaps!

    this may be odd, but i only watched the 1st episode and this episode only! because the ep. 2-5 are not so-good to watch. i only relied on the recaps. anyways, i’m happy that finally, the series is now creating a good plot. hope that it’ll continue ’til the end.

    with regards to the dance professor and the daughter’s chairman — less scenes with them pls! they’re misplacing kyu won’s position! kyu won should be the spot light coz she’s the main lead here! so please….

  85. 85 Josd

    In the drama, the other characters find their stories,( the hungry boy and natarsha, KY) . But what’s the story of leads? KW loves a boy who follows his teacher ( even she loves another man) like a puppy in about half of the drama.

  86. 86 Carinne

    Oh. Heart. Breakkk. Even the rain tried to help KW disguise her love struck tears in the sweet ending of E06. Not much of a cliffhanger powerful enough to hook me on anticipating for the next chapter, however I’ll continue to watch since GF addressed the main reason I’m hanging on… bring back Gukak vs. Rock.

    Well… welcome kaedejun! I hope this baton pass doesn’t slip due to rain.

  87. 87 mehbleh

    I dunno if anyone noticed but YongHwa’s acting has improved like CRAZYYY!! I found myself wanting to give that boy a hug most of this episode. He somehow comes across as an extremely vulnerable frail kid but then when I watch his CNBlue music videos, he’s so confident and hot!

    Props to you mate!

    I’m loving this show mainly cause of the chemistry i feel the leads have (and yonghwa im not gonna lie) but it better pick up the pace or risk losing viewers.

    I want them to introduce KY and KJ goddamnit!!!! They need to hurry on with that or KY is at risk of being the mopey love crushed puppy that her character just CANNOT be ( I won’t allow for it ).

  88. 88 Caitlyn

    I’m just worried that they’re going to get Ki Young together with Hee Joo. That’s what it looks like they’re going to do, and seriously, if that happens I will be seriously questioning the writers sanity.

    • 88.1 sararamodark

      yeh well the writers seems changing their mind frequently well it has its good sides like not knowing what happens next and bad sides like what u mentioned

  89. 89 aubrey

    can’t wait to watch the next episodes… waiting here.. :)

  90. 90 Vicky

    I felt the episodes this week were so… empty. I didn’t like them much. I mean the troubles Shin going through about rejection and all was fine but I felt it was dragged out within the episode.

    They still could’ve added some light and airy-ness to it. I hope they get it moving. I want to see more of Ki Young please.

  91. 91 yuffie

    I’m pretty messed up… I saw that gyu won’s father had an affair with lee shin’s mother and I really want to know if lee shin’s mother is the same as gyu won’s father because then they cannot be in a relationship..:-??

    • 91.1 momosa

      Yeah..the thought of it gets me all ruffled up!

  92. 92 catcher

    Here come my 2 cents fellows. lol. It’s like I’m busy sticking my nose to places that talks about HT. I can’t help it *pat self*

    Okay, I’m not even going to express how awesome you guys made me feel when barging in here and see my post shared by a few kind souls, not to mention here (sp) and there (fb). I suspect that you guys were the ones that gave me the plus on soompi forum? Here I am thinking it might be just me. Ha! Oh well, I’m on cloud nine, nevertheless.

    I don’t want to repeat myself again because I guess probably those who dislike the drama will continue disliking it and those who find it irresistible will continue staying with it to the end.

    The point I’d like to make here in db, and please excuse my possible silliness, is that despite the fact that this drama is never going to be Kiyoung or whoever that is, they keep complaining and whining to either let the said guy take over the lead or change the lead altogether (my poor Yonghwa), which I think is absolutely unappreciative and unfair. Well, again, it might be just me.

    Like many of you here often remind us, if one doesn’t like watching a drama, one should ignore it and go away. Plain and simple.

    I really don’t understand why people have to hate and give out nasty, hurtful comments. I mean, I know the leads’ acting might not be superb and the story line might not be an award winning script, heck, it might even be cliche to some extend, which i subsequently find the same in most of the favorite dramas here, but I never, never once say it out loud, because what’s the point of saying – hey, let’s ditch the main lead and find a better guy for it, I can’t stand the sight of his mediocre acting skill.

    What would really be the point? Sure it’s to voice out your disappointment, or even anger, because the expected drama isn’t up to personal standard, but really everyone, there are too many ways out there to express your frustration WITHOUT being insensitive and being such jackass. I know it’s a generalization I’m making because there are people who criticize for better purpose, but it doesn’t mean it doesn’t hurt my little unworthy self to see people work hard and get dished just because other people out there are just plain cruel.

    How I wish people would stop giving Yonghwa their cold shoulder and the director/scriptwriters such a hard time. I don’t see what’s wrong with a realistic scenario where a guy loves his girl and reluctantly/stubbornly when he should to move on just because the girl doesn’t reciprocates. Love hurts and takes to heal. What’s so hard to understand that?

    If you can’t accept the drama, move on, but don’t leave behind untoward comments/remarks, even though I know it’s a free world.

    Well again, maybe it might be just me.

    peace, peace, peace.

    Off I go.

      Oh my, due to my lack of sleep, I made grammatical mistakes here and there and hope you would mind. I really need to dust off my engrish for I’ve been back to my country for so long.

      On second note, I really really need to proofread what I type before posting it. Geez, how careless!

        Ha ha!

        My sincere apology.

      I agree with everything you said. Thanks catcher for writing down what I have been feeling inside.

      THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THIS.

    • 92.3 Jayne

      Thank you for writing this too Catcher. Agree with you. Comments about changing the lead to KY or KSH, giving more screen time to KY are uncalled for. If this drama/lead/script is not to people’s liking, these people can go look for a drama that has a lead that they like and leave the people who actually love this drama to spazz in peace.

    • 92.4 Kayti

      I’m a bit confused. So we should only say positive things about a show, or stop watching it? Isn’t that kind of boring?

      • 92.4.1 catcher

        Hi Kayti,

        Thanks for reading, and sorry for making you confused with my post. To answer your question, it’s a no and no.

        No, we don’t have to only say positive things about a show just to please other people. And no, we don’t have to stop watching it because it sucks. All I’m saying is, we should be civilize and kind to the show we’re watching because there are a lot of people liking it and by complaining, some even whining, I don’t think it helps the show in whatever way.

        You can look around in this blog, or others, or in soompi thread for HT, not everyone is praising the drama plot, even the actor/actress’s acting. Instead, they constructively criticize the drama with logic and kind words. And that, is all I’m saying we should.

        But that doesn’t mean you, or anyone else, have to do exactly the same thing. You can still watch the drama and hate its gut. You can still love the idea that you think the drama is supposed to be and dislike the real show. You can still go around read comments about HT and leave your own. Like I said, it’s a free world.

        But if the drama bugs people so much, to the extend that they have to spit out hurtful comments, I humbly suggest they should switch drama and ignore it altogether. Wouldn’t that be easier?

        And I’m not saying you, Kayti, are amongst one of those with a tongue full of venom. Please don’t feel offended.

        I might be wrong in what I’m thinking, or wrong in any possible way. But I’m sure all of us, who started to watch the drama, be it one full episode or just a glimpse of the first episode, was once kind-hearted to begin with.

        So, with all my respect, I sincerely hope we could continuously to be that way with this drama, no matter how bad or disappointing it might become in the end.

        catcher.

  93. 93 Nikki

    aren’t Park Shin Hye that too busy? cause she has also another drama in Taiwan titled~ Hayate the Combat Butler~.. and it aired the same month as the Heartstrings…

    her Leading Man there is more cute that Jung YongHwa… 😉

    • 93.1 Yuki

      Then you can go ahead and watch that drama rather than complaining about Yonghwa here.

    • 93.2 rence

      Shinhye filmed hayate from oct 2010 to feb 2011 and so there’s no conflict on her schedule..Taiwan’s style is different from Korea in the sense that they finish the filming and all production stuff before airing the drama and i prefer it that way..no need for script revision whenever the ratings is not that good…

  94. 94 sarang

    The romance doesn’t interest me one bit tbh, I’m just looking forward to the musical aspect of it and of course Ki Young! When is the Ki Young x Kyu Won going to happen grr, it’s long overdue.

  95. 95 Jeannie

    Hmm…so many comments…I have mixed emotions, myself. I absolutely love Park Shin Hye and Jung Yong Hwa, and I think that they are expressing themselves perfectly, according to their respective personalities in this drama. At the same time, I am wondering how much more “angst” my heart can take! So many powerful emotions have already been expressed…I am ready for things to lighten up just a bit. :)
    The story line has been laid out for us, now it is time for the “meat” of the story to begin…Heartstrings, fighting!!! :)

  96. 96 vivyip

    i just watched the subbed version of ep 6 and (my crazy speculations)…

    for some reason, i think shin grabs kyu-won’s instrument mostly to make sure she follows him. (a strange cry for companionship and company?)

    …and while hopefully shin and kyu-won aren’t siblings…neither do i think kyu-won and the brat are sisters either. (I think that maybe shin’s mom maybe found a nice(?) guy tried to make something out of out and got the brat…and then somehow that relationshp fell apart due to emotional baggage

    the other thing that made me pause/chuckle was the dance prof’s comment that hee joo would make a better lead. Jokingly, maybe because the dance prof sees a lot of herself in Hee Joo (i mean, the nicknames alone are similar “exercise freak for one…or something like that…and the fact the one guy to chase her and charm her is maybe a saner version of mr drummer boy) and if the musical is sorta of the dance prof’s story…then it’s almost natural that she’d want a better(?) student to protray her younger self. At the same time, maybe she’s a little nervous about the director’s fondness for kyu-won… (probably all of the above) It also seems that since the director is determined to have kyu-won play lead, maybe the teachers’ aren’t completely reconciled/resolved (if nothing else, doesn’t the director have obligations to the US supposedy…unless he just abondons all to also stay permanantly at the school…hmm)….oh well. We’ll see on that, I guess.

    oh yeah! could someone explain the details of the term “melodrama,” please? for some reason, i’m beginning to wonder if there’ll be a happy happy ending (like…city hall or secret garden or even sungkyungkwan scandal) for this series….or if it will be a overall happy ending (like kyu-wn and shin get together but one has to go overseas to study and whatnot…like shining inheritance…or like dream high–where the leads DO kiss, but….) or a technical happy ending (like maybe cinderella’s sister or royal family or 49 days even)

    jokingly, if the text preview of ep 7 is to believed, then kyu-won’s gonna be sick…i’m almost beginning to feel bad for the cast of said musical and director regarding that because if kyu-won beomces sick…she either has to goto rehearsal sick or…miss one (and the director’s gonna need to come up with ANOTHER exemption? ^_^)

    okay, i’ll stop now. really. ^_^

  97. 97 aubrey

    i can’t wait for the next episodes… :)

  98. 98 Ladycamia

    This drama reminds me so much of “They kiss again” even the umbrella and the raining part. And, I feel like they’ve copy little bits of pieces of some drama like the Coffee in City Hunter? Pls to those who watch it: Please don’t kill me.

    But I feel like the flow of the story is so confused that they lost who the real main character are. Right now if I don’t know the synopsis of the story I would have taught the drama revolves around the mom and the love triangle or the director and the professor. It’s like the drama should be called “the story of the past triangle” lol

    I agree to some of the comments here. It seems like the lead just lost her identity. Well, I guess when your young your emotion rules over your head?

    I hope it gets better soon.

  99. 99 Poopy

    WHAT IS THE LAST SONG IN THIS EPISODE?! I CANT FIND IT ANYWHERE
