When I think of Tomorrow’s Cantabile, I can’t help but compare it to Nodame Cantabile. Tomorrow’s Cantabile is loosely based on the original story. It is softer, sweeter and an easy to watch light romantic comedy.
I believe Joo Won can do anything and do it extremely well. His character, Yoo Jin, will give you a lot of warm and fuzzy moments in this drama, so enjoy…
Shim Eun Kyeong, played a read more sweet and less wacky version of Nodame. The roles of Go Gyeong Pyo as Rak and Park Bo Gum as the other love interest for Naeil, added to the drama and were well done. Stressman’s character was only a pale shadow to the same character in Nadome Cantabile. Or you could say his character was a more rational man and not the crazy womanizer played in Nadome.
Nodame Cantabile is based on the manga. Being based on the manga, the characters are more pronounced. Their actions and expressions are sometimes more exaggerated and comic like. Even the Classical pieces and performances were more explosive in this drama. Ueno Juri was just a perfect Nodame and I fell in love with Tamaki Hiroshi in his portrayal of Chiaki.
With a shove from Naeil/Nodame, Yoo Jin/Chiaki finds himself following his dream…
Both dramas are good.
Tomorrow’s Cantabile is a no stress, easy to watch, light and sweet romantic comedy enhanced with classical music playing throughout. It is a feels good drama that will leave you smiling.
Nadome Cantabile, is just more…
