Korean actress, Lee Ji Ah who became a rising star thanks to her role in last year’s epic drama, Tae Wang Sa Shin Gi has decided on her sophomore drama.
Six months after wrapping up the long and ardous filming for MBC’s Tae Wang Sa Shin Gi fantasy drama, Lee Ji Ah will return to our screens with charismatic actor, Kim Myung Min in MBC’s new drama, “Beethoven Virus”.
Beethoven Virus talks about a group of young people and their love for classical music. Because of it’s classical music theme, it’s been said that this is the Korean version of popular Japanese manga/anime, “Nodame Cantabile”. Lee Ji Ah plays a violinist with a “refined” and “feminine” outward appearance but yet possesses a lively and mischievous personality. Kim Myung Min as a strong-willed, perfectionist orchestra conductor. Other casts are yet to be decided.
“Beethoven Virus” is receiving lots of attention because it’s a comeback for both Lee Ji Ah and Kim Myung Min. This drama will be directed by Lee Jae Kyu of “Damo” fame. Since being confirmed for the drama, Lee Ji Ah has been taking violin lessons to look natural while playing the instrument.
