    Thanks so much both of you. I know nothing about music, but the little classical I listen to is from movies or dramas. I love adding new music to my playlist. So thank you!

    Thank you guys, this is lovely. I keep telling myself I’m going to stop reading about politics and the world and take the time to listen to ally’s choices. But I never do 😢 (always been bad at doing things that are good for me). This makes it so easy ❤️❤️

      Why are you reading that stuff? It never changes. Just stresses people out. Listen to music that never changes. It takes stress away!

Couple’s music, last but the furthest from least, Song -ha and Joon-young. I’ll just let the music speak for itself. And yes. Joon-joint will finally perform Brahms and love it because Song-ha will be performing it with him. 🥰

One of my favorite violin pieces. If one wanted to flex their violin skills, *cough* Jung Kyung *cough*, it would be with this piece, Sarasate’s Zigeunerweisen. And how about a prodigy this time? That’s what her character is supposed to be. So maybe she was really this good.

Another Clara Schumann piece I can see Joon-young playing. Such a beautiful nocturne played by Yekwon Sunwoo.

And the next couple is Dong-yoon (I used to go to school with a Dong-hoon, but I’m thinking his name was really Dong-yoon now that I think about it 🤔) and Min-seong. It was a toss up here. Both songs by Saint-Saens. I thought Danse Macabre would be fitting, not just in the way it sounds, but also because their love seems superficial and potentially dead on arrival. And Min-seong probably thinks Dong-yoon is worse than death 💀 himself. The second is a beautiful but a little chaotic piece for violin and piano, his Introduction and Rondo Capriccioso. I love Zia Hyunsu Shin’s interpretation with Dong Hyek Lim on piano. And I chose is because this relationship sounds a bit chaotic with all their drinking and fornication (sorry, Saint-Saens) . But I can’t decide. I don’t know enough about the characters to make a decision. So here is both: Danse Macabre— https://youtu.be/lpms9Ob56U8, Intro & Rondo capriccioso—

An introduction to Clara Schumann. Yang In Mo, 25-year old, winner of the 54th Paganini competition, playing a Romance for violin and piano she composed.

Couple’s music, continued. Now we come to Song-ha and Dong-yoon. The friends to never-lovers, with a student-teacher bond as well. These two could have been well-suited for each other. He definitely respects her bravery going out on a limb to be a violinist, and even gives up his time and resources for her to be successful doing it. But love triangles are complex with another girl madly in love with him. For them, I love Ysaÿe. I love that name. Not a well known composer outside violin circles, but also a contemporary of the Schumanns as Clara Schumann would listen to his orchestra perform where he was the principal violinist. He wrote extremely difficult violin compositions. Here is Clara Jumi Kang performing his Sonata for two violins in A minor. I love these minor keys for love lost.

Yeol Eum-Son playing Schumann’s Traumerei. (YES!) Love her clarity. I think Joon-Young would approve.

This is just a thing of beauty. Incredibly difficult, but Yeol Eum-son is just other-worldly. This is what one competes against in competition and how I knew I would never be cut out for it. Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto #1 is arguably his most famous concerto and most recognized.

Couple’s music, continued. And then there is Jung-kyung and Hyeon-hyo. I can only conjecture about how these two are together. I think the affability of Hyeon-hyo is stark against the melancholy of JK. But maybe opposites attract? A pre-teen crush that never matured maybe. I think Hyeon-hyo likes JK just because of her prodigy-ness. He worships her for her talent. Or maybe her violin virtuosity is just that affecting. So I found this Schubert piece, a piano trio in B-flat, that I could see them playing. LOL at the comment from a year ago about the violinist– I think the same could be said about Jung-Kyung.

    Call me a cynic but I think he’s after the money😉

      Maybe! Oh and this video has a really cute part at the beginning where the pianist talks about commiserating with the cellist about “boy” and “girl” problems and calling the string players his “dongseangs” which is adorable.

    I wanted to say one more thing about Schubert. The pianist says that this piece was written when Schubert was sick and at the end of his career, almost forgotten. However, Schubert bridged the classical and romantic periods and so many of the romantic era composers (including Schumann and Brahms) revitalized his works and saw the genius of them after his death.

After episode 4 of DYLB I was thinking of the couples and multiple triangles and the music that the show could use in depicting these. The first is Joon-Young and Jung-Kyung. Both talented, but due to outside pressures, are thrown together and drawn to each other’s dysthymia. Chopin’s Nocturne in C#minor (and the natural uneasiness of the key) fits this perfectly. This is an arrangement for piano and violin, and then how it was originally written, for piano only. I almost hate to give this song to them, because I love playing it so much. I’ll be focussing on the Romantic period of Classical music and try to showcase some very talented Korean musicians in the process.

    And the solo piano. I like how in the 4th episode Joon-young cuts off all romantic ties to Jung-kyung like it is played here, and is now on his own, a weight is off him.

On Episode 3 of DYLB, we learn that Song-Ah loves Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata. I was lucky (or unlucky) enough to play the first movement in high school while pining over a boy who was “just a friend.” It is THE BEST angsty piano piece for an emo teenager to play. I then picked it back up in college, this time learning the entire 3 movements. I only played it for a final, in front of my professors, but all the emotions from high school spilled out on that stage, in the time before YouTube, thankfully. I barely made it through the first movement. I still tear up when I hear it. So I was crying with Song-Ah tonight when Joon hugged her. Would I have had anyone to hug me then. This show has my heart and soul now. And the way Dong-Hyek Lim looks is exactly how I feel when playing this song. It’s painful, but in a good way. And you must listen to his Goldberg variations If you get the chance, and Chopin Preludes, and Rach’s concerto #2. And just anything he plays. Lol.

    I played angsty Moonlight Sonata in high school too!!! The melding into happy birthday was just too beautiful. This show makes me unreasonably smiley.

    I played it too but pretty much only had angst over my piano teacher, I was lucky 😖 But I bet it was nothing compared to the angst I caused her 😬

Temperature of love (from the same writer) had such great fast-talking banter which I loved. Guess what? Record of Youth is even better! I’m a very happy person.

    I hope it doesn’t take a turn like ToL did though. It was hard for me to finish that one.

      I had to stop it when the mothers started getting involved. I like the moms in this one though. Even Hye-hyo’s who is adorable pulling ALL the strings. I surprisingly don’t hate her.

    Oh someone pointed this out too. I always wondered if there’s sth about the writer’s dialogues because they seemed different. So many things get lost in translation, I noticed they were fast paced but maybe they sound different too in Korean.

            Am I right thinking that TOL had way better subbers?

            ToL was carried by viki and I think Viu (I can’t remember if DF had it, would have to check) – there’s definitely a world of difference between those subs and Netflix’s. I would really like to know the process of netflix subbing, man. They are so loveless. And my appreciation that they exist at all is somewhat limited by the fact that they exist because they killed the competition XD

            like if you’re going to kill the competition, don’t replace it with sub-par material?

            Don’t we have someone on the inside of Netflix (aka @javabeans) that can find these things out? Would any minions be able to sub and get paid for it?

And the SPOTIFY version! You guys had me scouring the archives for some of these! And I still didn’t find all of them. Unfortunately, Jae’s cover is not on Spotify :(. And some surprises, and anew song for my Highlight/Beast play list (from Doojoon of the “Wedding Boys”)! Enjoy this, everyone, but especially @azzo1. Thank you for everyone who contributed and those that just listened too!!!

The YouTube Playlist, Azzo’s Playlist, is up! @azzo1, there are some really GREAT songs on this. Trust Beanies’ tastes in music! Also, many songs come from OSTs which when you are ready tointroduce SNG to kdramas, would be some great ones to start (Strong Woman, 20th Century Boy/Girl, Because This Life is Our First, Weightlifting Kim Bok Ju, Crash Landing into You). May you have many years of happiness from the kdrama gods, and that your life has less angst, separation, and nightmare mother-in-laws than a kdrama, but all the butterflies, back hugs, skipped beats, and swoons! Congratulations dear Azzo and SNG (sticky-note-guy)!!! ❤️❤️❤️

OK, I can’t not include this in the playlist, Jae from Day6, doing a cover of “Can’t Take My Eyes Off of You.”

This may be my last contribution to the playlist at an even 10. You didn’t think I could leave out Highlight, right? From Dujun’s solo album post-military, Fool of Love, describes SNG to a T.
