Lee Shin is a university student majoring in modern music. He is the vocalist of band "The Stupid" and also plays the guitar. He is known for his good looks and his strong passion for music, but is in reality a cold person who is uninterested in non-music related things and has no dreams nor plans for the future. Shin initially likes a dance professor at his university, but this all changes read morewhen he meets Lee Kyu Won.

Lee Kyu Won is a bright and outgoing student who was born into a prestigious family and is majoring in traditional Korean instruments, especially the gayageum. Kyu Won's grandfather, Lee Dong Gun, is one of the top 3 traditional musicians of his age, and his biggest wish is to have his grand-daughter trained to become a traditional music prodigy in 10 years' time. Trying to live up to her grandfather's expectations, Kyu Won immerses herself in training and becomes a university student who knows nothing besides traditional music. As Kyu Won's friends are fans of "The Stupid", she was forced to go to the band's concert with them. There she saw Lee Shin performing live, and is immediately captivated by him.

Considering the last drama I watched was Fashion King (which was a pile of poop), anything would be better than that! Heartstrings is thus titled as a "recuperating" drama, where viewers recuperating from Go Mi Nyeo and Kang Shin Woo not ending up with each other (in the "You're Beautiful" drama) can have that satisfied, or viewers recuperating from wretched previous dramas can enjoy the lighthearted mood of this one.

And that's read more basically it; this drama is mellow and for the ones that are content at heart! The acting is great, the characters are very adorable and mild in temper (Hee Joo was technically capable of more damage), and the story line is very stress-free and happy! And, of course, the music is awesome (as expected, with the cast being, well, the cast!)~

I recommend giving this drama a watch for several main personal reasons: it's short, it's mellow, and it'll leave you smiling at the end! :)

After watching a lot of stressful dramas i decided i needed a less stressful light one. I really did like this drama as it was that, and it was really cute and enjoyable and i only didnt rate it very high because I have seen better ones that really pull me into the plot. I guess it is probably because the story itself does not carry too much depth. But the acting read more and music was really good. The ending was kinda weak and confusing, it wasnt a bad ending it just was not necessary really.

Both revolve around a girl who likes a guy and boy doesn't like her...yet.

However Playful Kiss this concept is stretched longer unlike Heartstrings.
Recommended by Midnitee
both dramas are similar in the sense that both the mains are going to a music school and play some sort of instrument.

    I just realized Yong Hwa and Min Hyuk have both worked with Shin Hye twice.

    Yong Hwa and Shin Hye still have chemistry. I'm just a little annoyed he has to play the jerk archetype character. I wish he got to play the same nice guy role like in You're Beatiful
