I’m yooruu and I’ll be bumming around posting on tasty Korean dramas on this shared blog for moi and moi buds who are passionate about k-culture and k-dramas in general.
I am half-Korean and from the land of Oz and will be mainly working with londony (who has been posting so far) to bring you more exciting updates!! woohoo!
So far I haven’t found any good comprehensive summary sites on the new drama “Beethoven Virus” so for your interest I shall introduce and then post up the summaries later for each episode 🙂
16 episodes, 2008, MBC, English subtitles
Beethoven Virus draws the story of people who’ve been abandoned by music and have abandoned music themselves. These people create an orchestra and encounter many difficulties.
Kang Ma Eh (Kim Myung Min) is an orchestra conductor in his 40’s. He is an elite workaholic conductor with a very bad reputation, and who will do absolutely anything in order to create the very best music. However, due to his self-righteous and stubborn personality that makes him think only his thoughts are correct, he is unable to form good relationships with those around him. He also is insists that classical music is made for nobility only. Lee Ji Ah plays 27 year old Du Ru Mi, a frank and lively talented girl who plays the violin by ear. She may seem womanly and elegant on the surface but she is tomboyish girl who even dares to share adult videos with her male friends. Jang Geun Suk plays Kang Gun Woo, a person who is gifted musically with the perfect pitch. The three of them form a love triangle.
