Park Eun-bin, Kim Min-jae up for new SBS drama, Do You Like Brahms?


Kim Min-jae, Park Eun-bin

A new drama is in the works for SBS called Do You Like Brahms? and actors Park Eun-bin (Stove League) and Kim Min-jae (Romantic Doctor Teacher Kim 2) have been courted for leading roles.

Set at a prestigious college, the story focuses on students studying music and their high pressure environment. From a very young age, the students have had endless lessons, practices, and competitions–with their abilities constantly under the scrutiny of others. The drama aims to examine the different relationships in the students’ lives, exploring what it means to truly be supportive and the different factors that drive someone to show support.

If she accepts, Park Eun-bin will be playing the part of Chae Song-ah. After completing her business degree, it took her another 4 tries to finally get accepted into the music program at the same school. Now, at the age of 29, she is re-entering university as a first year student with new majors in violin and instrumental music. Still, like many other young adults, her biggest headaches are uncertainty over her career path while and an unrequited love.

The role that has been offered to Kim Min-jae is pianist Park Joon-young. Hailing from a humble background, he’s an only child and his parents who run a small restaurant. His life changed at the age of 6 when he was first introduced to classical music and the piano. Since then, he’s been winning competitions across the country and receiving scholarships from various cultural foundations. With that support, he attended specialized music schools throughout his youth before being accepted to college as a music major.

On the drama’s production team, Ryu Bori is set to write the scripts and PD Jo Young-min is attached to direct. This will be their second time working together after last year’s SBS drama special Everything and Nothing.

SBS’s new drama Do You Like Brahms? is currently being planned premiere in June 2020, and will be airing Mondays and Tuesdays.

I hope that they both accept. I love classical music so this will be a treat for me. I will be watching.

The idea of returning to school to get a completely different degree is very unusual in K-dramas. It sets the main leads up for a Noona romance, if the writers want to take it that way.

Only good news : Everything and Nothing was a great drama, the actors are good and I love stories about classical music.

I hope Park Eun Bin will be able to show all the range of feelings. She was so good in AoY 2.

@kurama, @gadis,

Thanks for your comments on the 2019 SBS TV movie EVERYTHING AND NOTHING, which shows up under a couple of titles:

CONDITION OF SEVENTEEN
THE CONDITION OF 17 YEARS OLD

http://asianwiki.com/Seventeen-Year-Old%27s_Condition

EVERYTHING AND NOTHING slipped past me, but now I'm going to give it a look. Yoon Chan-young and Park Si-eun were great as the younger versions of the leads in SEVEN DAY QUEEN and THIRTY BUT SEVENTEEN / STILL 17. Along with Baek Seung-hwan, they played another memorable set of youngsters in SIX FLYING DRAGONS.

Thanks again, Beanies. ;-)

@kurama, @gadis,

I just finished watching EVERYTHING AND NOTHING. I see why you're both looking forward to another project by PD-nim and Writer-nim. The vibe reminds me very much of a song by Janis Ian.

They told an very unique story in Kdramaland and the way the did it was interesting and warm. So I hope for the same for their next project.

Am I dreaming? There is literally nothing wrong with this! Great actors, great director/writer combo, and set in a music school??

Oh no, I'm excited.

With that writer/director combo, count me in. Everything and Nothing is a raw drama that managed to portray coming-of-age story in a different and unexpected way, so I'm hoping for something similar in their 2nd project.

This sounds interesting. Also I like PEB in Stove League and KMJ in TBH. Though I like KMJ more as young Wang Yeo in Goblin.

I like a music-centric drama ala Nodame Cantabile, Beethoven Virus etc. Maybe this will be the drama for me. Maybe. Hopefully.

Thank you for this welcome bit of casting news, @tccolb. While the Dreams' Operations Manager will be sliding into home plate at a music conservatory with her fiddle under her arm, uri Nurse Park Eun-tak will bail out of the ER & OR at Doldam Hospital and into the same music circuit now occupied by former Captain Ri Jung-hyuk of CRASH LANDING ON YOU. It would be hilarious to have Kim Min-jae and Hyun Bin face off in a piano competition. While I love classical music, I'm a little gun-shy after LET ME HEAR YOUR SONG started out so well with lots of great music and then went off the rails. NAEIL'S CANTABILE also started well and then flaked out towards the end, IIRC, so I'm feeling a bit wary. On the other hand, I'm encouraged by fellow Beanies' positive comments about the director and screenwriter. Count me in. ;-)

Honestly, I'm not too crazy about the plot, but both leads are great and likable. Really want to see Kim Min Jae nail a lead role too.

@loveblossom,

I thought KMJ did well in an understated role in FLOWER CREW: JOSEON MARRIAGE AGENCY. He's been steadily exploring a variety of genres. I wonder when he'll play a dashing cop or some other action role.

I wish she’d go back to her roots and do a Sageuk once in a while.

I don't think sageuk as a genre is as popular as it used to be and if you want to be a 'trendy' actor sageuk is not what you want to do these days. One of the reasons why PSH and SHK have never done sageuk dramas because it doesn't suit their 'Hallyu Queen' image. Everyone wants a lifetime of big fat pay cheques at the end of the day. Being a critical success doesn't give you that.

I could careless about hallyu status, queen or whatever you call it.
She honed her skills in sageuks as a child actress. I'm kind of tired of mediocre, uninspired and bland actresses being cast in lead roles.
She'll thrive with her talents without being known as an over-rated CF queen.

Those things don't pay the bills though. She and everyone else wants to get paid 200 million won per episode. Over rated CF stars get all the good lead roles because they are CF stars. LMH would not be the King of Hallyu if he cared about honing his skills. Even SYJ did CLOY because she wanted the CF money. Why else would a critically acclaimed movie star do a largely nonsensical drama. You not caring about it doesn't mean they themselves and their agencies don't care about it. Money rules the industry not talent.

Unfortunately people don't thrive on talents they thrive on CF and trendy dramas. Cases in point - KSE, IJH, KY, KSG have never made it. People like Suzy, PSH, Yoona, IU and Seolhyun will always be more in demand than people like PEB and LSY.

It's not about Hallyu image. But if you can act in a sageuk, you will be recognized as an actor. Sageuk are difficult to act : the ton of the voice, the dialogues, etc. It's good for a career in Korea.

Park Shin Hye did a historic movie as a queen.

I'm telling you why they don't want to do certain types of dramas. That was what I said in the beginning. Wanting to do trendy dramas is why certain genres aren't popular anymore. They want the CF money not critical acclaim for their acting. They just want to get paid large sums of money for the rest of their life.

I replied to the wrong comment. Sorry about that.

Movies aren't a part of Hallyu. They don't count. That movie was a flop btw. Actors make more money from dramas than movies. The most important is CF money. Won Bin makes 1 Million Won per CF. For just 30 second CF he gets a Million Won which is why he has no interest in returning to acting.

I meant 1 Billion not Million. He earns 1 Billion Won per CF.

We are talking about acting not to be an advertising board. We don't care about what they earn with their CF...

Are you for real?

Of course you won't count Korea's 100 years movie industry because it'll prove just how much talents rules.

Your mindset is all about money. I lost you at first comment.

1

I know you want to live in the idealistic world but in reality movies aren't considered a part of Hallyu. Why would money matter to me? It matters to the agencies that these actors work under. Do you think agents tell their actors to become critically acclaimed or they tell them to go earn big money so that they can in turn earn big money. What you want to believe is not reality but these actors they live in the real world. The popularity ranking lists that come out every year and lists that industry experts make have you ever seen them? They make those lists on the basis of how trendy the actors are and how big their fanbase is and how much CF money they bring in. Industry experts which comprises of star writers, directors and producers make these lists not me. To make it on these lists you need a drama at CLOY, DOTS, Goblin or HDL level. Your problem is you just want to believe in what you believe in keep asking why won't this actor do this or why won't that actor do that kind of roles. The answer is simple because it won't make them popular. KES is considered the best drama writer in Korea. Doesn't that say a lot about what the standards of the industry and actors are.

0

Just so you know the only movies that are considered Hallyu are movies like My Sassy Girl and A Millionaire's First Love. Even Parasite is not considered a part of Hallyu.

If I continue reading I might need to go see a therapist.

Have a wonderful day <3.

Then you're not going to like knowing that KSH demanded 200+ million won per episode for his comeback project which is double of what he was earning before his military enlistment and now SJK and other Hallyu actors are demanding they get paid the same. Facts don't disappear just because you don't like them. Money does matter to these actors.

I don't know why you keep going on and on when all kiara was saying at the beginning was her own personal opinion that she wishes an actress she likes would do more sageuks lol. Chill. She wasn't asking for your marketplace analysis.
