A nice, breezy romance with awesome chemistry between everyone.
It had nothing great, but its simplicity is the best thing about this show.
Also, it was great to see the sweet moments between the leads and their growing attraction.
The music is very good.
Overall, a sweet and simple campus drama with adorable cast.

This drama started off really promising - and I'll admit I started to watch it because of Park Shin Hye and Yong Hwa. I wanted them to be together in You're Beautiful and I was happy to see a drama with both of them as the leads again. Maybe part of the reason is I was watching quite a few dramas at the time I was watching this, but it started to read more get boring to me. The story was slow in the beginning and after a while I wasn't really going crazy over this drama. It was ordinary to me. I also found most of it to be predictable, especially towards the ending. Majority of this story revolves around the musical.

The cast was one of the main reasons I continued to watch this show. I think Park Shin Hye is a great actor and it was nice to see her and Yong Hwa working together again. And the drummer from CNBlue, Kang Min Hyuk, as Joon Hee was cute (: The rest of the acting was well done, too.

The music was the other main reason for my continuing of the show. I loved all the songs and there wasn't a single one I disliked.

My rewatch value for this show is low because it didn't interest me as much as other shows have.

Overall: If I hadn't been watching it as it was airing I dunno how much difference it would've made. Maybe I'd have liked it a little more or maybe I'd be feeling glad it's over, the way I feel now that it's done. I gave this drama a 7 overall because of the cast and the music. I would say if you don't have anything else to watch I'd recommend watching this show, but it wasn't anything special to me

Make a Recommendation Recommendations

Both are based on student musicians, though Heartstrings has a much deeper story. The music is amazing as well.

both shows are about music, friendship and love.
