With less than a week to go, MBC has started it’s publicity drive by releasing the trailer and stills for it’s drama “Beethoven Virus” (I like that name) which revolves around an orchestra and stories involving the people playing the various instruments. The still of Kang Gun Woo (Jang Geun Seuk) meeting Du Ru Mi (Lee Ji Ah) in the subway one day by destiny got the most attention.
In the photos, the beautiful scene of Du Ru Mi playing the violin while Kang Gun Woo plays the trumpet left viewers dazzled. In the drama, Kang Gun Woo doesn’t know about his in-born musical talent and only until the appearance of Du Ru Mi one day leaves him to discover that he is actually alive. Without any proper music training beforehand, Kang Gun Woo is bought into the orchestra and with the help of Du Ri Mi, they become the best partners and players.
Jang Geun Seuk and Lee Ji Ah will also appear at the “Beethoven Virus” press conference as MCs on 4th September with the latter set to play the violin to show her hardwork in learning it over the past few months. “Beethoven Virus” will air it’s first episode starting next Wednesday, 10th September.
“Kingdom of the Winds”, “Beethoven Virus” and “Tazza”, I am waiting on these 3. By the way, Song Hye Gyo, Hyun Bin, etc are in Singapore right now filming for KBS “The World That They Live In” starting from 1st – 13th September, for two whole weeks. No idea where they will be at. Tell me if you know.
For those who can watch KBSWorld on Starhub Digital Cable, you can also access another Korean channel Arirang TV on Channel 172 starting yesterday. Recommended program is Homey Korean where they teach Korean.
