The laughter begins in Cantabile Tomorrow’s second teaser

Not that I was worried, but I’m glad that this show intends to be funny. The first teaser for KBS’s new Monday-Tuesday drama Cantabile Tomorrow was more lyrical and contemplative, but the second teaser brings out more of the bubbly feel I expect from the drama. There’s always the risk of the comedy going too broad, but I feel like you can’t cast an actress like Shim Eun-kyung (Miss Granny) and let her talent for comedy go to waste, can you?

The remake of Nodame Cantabile will be a music-themed campus drama that stars Joo-won (Good Doctor) as the perfectionist virtuoso who’s outwardly cold but is surprisingly thoughtful and kind, at least when he’s forced to be. Shim Eun-kyung plays the oddball heroine who on a good day is considered quirky and on most days is utterly hapless. She’ll force that hidden warmth out of him when she sticks to his side like a wad of gum, causing mayhem in his heretofore quiet life.

In the teaser, he sees her coming for him like a slow-mo horror scene, and holds her back with one arm, swearing, “No, it’s not love!” But soon he’s piggybacking her across campus when she’s ill (aw), and having to literally drag her out of his bed when she surprises him (in what I’m sure she thinks are her sexy PJs, hee). We only get tiny glimpses of classmate Go Kyung-pyo and genius conductor Baek Yoon-shik, but I’m already looking forward to the comic touches they’ll bring. Okay Show, I’m ready for the zany — hit me with your best shot.

Cantabile Tomorrow follows Monday-Tuesday drama Discovery of Romance and premieres October 13.

Is it just me or does Shim Eun-kyung really resemble Ueno Juri quite a bit?

I hope this drama won't be too heavy on the romance, I liked that the jdrama focused on the characters more without the usual compulsory tropes of jealous second lead or noble idiocy, and kept the romance part mostly low-key and believably developed. The most swoonworthy romantic part in the entire drama for me was probably Kiyora dropping honorifics and calling Mine by his first name but since there is no Kiyora here it'll have to be something else.

(please, Group 8, don't ruin this one!)

Isn't that Kiyora next to Mine in that poster above? Or is that a new character?

The actress name Jung Seong-ah, member rookie girlband TOP.IC as violin Lee Dan Ya (Maybe Kiyora). It's nice to know because she's really skilled to playing Violin in real life, so maybe she can be a big helping for Go Kyung Pyo.

It's her debut song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5EMRJA3nDO4

Based on the some Korean article, her character not really in the original drama, but described as someone who wanted to get married soon (not ambitious girl Kiyora). But, I assume she's still Kiyora because her character described leading orchestra and playing violin.

Maybe the Korean remake want to make a little different from the original vers. Like they want to make twist character of Kikuchi Toru (Park Bo Gum).

no, she's not Kiyora. The one who will be Kiyora is from A-Orchestra and Lee Dan Ya is from S-Orchestra.

I agree with you. the love key romance and the lack of jealouse second leads that over powered the plot was something that I liked in the first one.

I like the way the teasers are going though. Hopefully this is only a tiny bit of what they will bring.

I'm feeling a bit more optimistic about it now though. So just hope that they keep it more School 2013 and less [insert rom-com with over focus on love triangle here].

OMG,, They are totally fantasy pairing,,,, (if I remember Joo Won as evil badass Lee Kang To and remember Shim as a cute and innocent girl Im-Na Mi from "Sunny")

Shim said, "I wish I was like Peter Pan, never having to grow up" :D

Kyaaaaa!!!! Been replaying the teasers over and over again just to see Joo Won and Shim Eun-kyung in action. I can totally see them as Chiaki and Nodame through the 2nd teaser.

Now if we can make Go Kyung-pyo's Mine have a little more of that Rocker-violinist vibe (and ensure that the script is good), we've got a winner on our hands!

*returns to re-watching the anime version of Nodame Cantabile again*

THAT'S Stresemann? :(((

Somehow I was hoping for more, since he was the funniest character (for me) in the Jdrama.

But this teaser sets the mood closer to the Jdrama.

Nodame and Chiaki can be copied to a degree but only Takenaka Naoto can play the Streseman. He was truly hysterical but I personally hope the Korean version doesn't even try to imitate the Japansese version because I don't think it's possible. And if they try and fail the drama will be unwatchable.

The actor Baek Yun-shik has been an absolute madman (in a good way) in all the works I've seen him in. Don't let appearances deceive. I am personally most looking forward to his Stressman, after Shim Eun-kyung's Nodame.

I'm feeling a bit more optimistic about the remake with this teaser. I was gonna check it out anyway, but this one hints at them having included the fun. I hope they keep the fun and wacky and a smaller focus on the romance (no scheming second leads and angsty noble idiocy over wht the original provides please).

One thing though... I still keep seeing Joo Woon as Kang To/Gaksital a bit. Maybe caus eI haven't really seen him as anything else, except as puppy on 1n2d (I never even started the drama that shall not be named)

You should watch him in Good Doctor. He's such a good actor in that drama.

Or Ojakgyo Brothers.

Completely different character than Kang To or his real nature in 1n2D.

I've heard he's pretty good in his first role with Baker King which also sounded like a completely different role as he plays the 2nd lead, but I've never seen it....

But, I recommended movie "Catch Me" too. He had more comical timing.

You should try his other dramas, he is so different in each of them. When I watched him in this order, Baker King-Ojakgyo Brothers-Gaksital-7LCS-Good Doctor, it was mind boggling. Not to mention that 1N2D aegyo puppy and Gaksital should never have come from the same person.

If you have no time, but a minute to spare, try this Fashion King trailer(Joo Won's movie coming in November):

So I watched the j-dorama (though I skipped the specials) and I'm halfway through the anime. I GET IT NOW. It was bizarre but it had a zingy, endearing quality. Loved the underdog team-up that was S-oke. I'm looking forward to this, whether it's good all the way through or not, just to see what they do with it. Though Shim is definitely Nodame--er Nae-il. I also hope the low-key-ness of the romance remains the same though they could go a little further than a back-hug. I did like how he wasn't just perfect and she wasn't just crazy: they both grew and learned from the other. There was a balance. That's often lacking in k-dramas but it be a shame if it wasn't here. Looking forward to Mine, he was my favorite. Liked what he had goin' on with Kiyora, hope that stays. So much feels for the original now (though maybe not as much as everyone else) Rhapsody in Blue is my favorite song right now. Everything else I'll decide how I feel about later. Cantabile Tomorrow: ONWARD!

Watch the specials!! The Paris special! There's more development in the characters and they did go further than the back-hug :))

I loved the original especially the unbelieveable union of Tamaki Hiroshi and Ueno Juri, but they proved to have so much chemistry than an exploding volcano. I loved the two teasers here, and I too hope that they could go a bit further than a backhug. Kisses happened in the specials and the movies, so I'm expecting lots of kisses. I was reluctant about Mine (Eita) at first thinking he's going to be a despicable second lead (too much kdrama watching?), but when I saw that only Saiko and Masumi (lol) was going to be a problem, I cared less. I love Masumi though. He's my favorite character after the hot conductor- with the electric hair and everything. Haha. And who could forget adorable Sakura- the walking contrabass? That said, I love Gaksitaaaaal so much and Joo Won is one of my favorite actors. We were born on the same day too! I'm gonna watch this coz I love Nodame Cantabile, Joo Won and Shim Eun Kyung is adorable. Fighting!

I loved the jdrama and I'm curious about the k-version. It seems they're going to keep the craziness to some extend, but...will they fit in their world? Because when I watched the jdrama I thought nothing of their behaviour, but in kdramas rooms and spaces look always so clean and wide and proper. I can't explain the filling, but I can't see people in the Korean version looking at Neil and not having disapproving thoughts.
