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.

I personally loved this drama. I felt that the main leads were a perfect couple together. This drama is really adorable and cute. It has the sweetest scenes in the world. Not only that, but I loved the cast considering I'm a big Yong Hwa fan. However, lots of people only watch it for the cast and think the story line is poorly written. However, I strongly disagree. The story line is read more fresh, new, and I don't think it's very cliche. Even the songs were great and addicting! I can also see myself re-watching this drama thousands of times. This drama is definitely must watch for all ages!

I have very conflicted thoughts about this drama. On one hand, I felt the story was pointless and horrible. Even the acting was just average, even though I love Jung Yong Hwa and Park Shin Hye. On the other hand, it was great to see Go Mi Nam and Shin Woo as a pair because (even though I love Hwang Tae Kyung)it was heartbreaking to watch Shin woo lose out in the read more love pentagon. A drama in which he actually got Go Mi Nam! No You're beautiful fan would dare skip it.

Another plus point was it's music. It's been over a year since I watched this drama and I'm still in love with the entire OST. 'Because I miss You' is like my favorite Korean dram OST of all time. These things kept me going and that's actually the reason I'm giving this drama a 7 instead of a 6 or a 5. Because of it's awesome star value and music. Those who look for nice content and intriguing storyline should skip this one.

Its also a music based drama...with leads being Jung Yong hwa and Park Shin hye since fans wanted them together so bad in You're Beautiful... Its simple and adorable..
Recommended by HaylieCharmz
the story revolves around two groups which initially dislike each other and soon grow comfortable with each other. There is a budding romance between the male and the female lead of the groups, and hee joo's personality is much alike to a certain character of this drama. Last but not least the teachers are absolutely awesome, and they both have a similar play out along the story
