He plays the second violin in the quartet and comes from a musical family. A man of many secrets, he also works at a donut company. Edit Translation

I have never written a review before,but I was so impressed with this drama that I felt I had to. Please forgive me for my lack of eloquence. If only I was as talented as the screenwriter;')I came into this drama for the cast alone, but I got much more than I was expecting.
   If you are expecting a great romance,you may be disappointed. There are some roomantic feelings,but it is not the main point. The quartet of flawed but likeable individuals find a friendship and support in a time when they all have a deep need for it. As a hardcore romantic, I thoroughly enjoyed the friendship and didn't feel any lack due to the barely there romance.
  The best things about this drama:
1) the acting- the casting could not have been more perfect. Each actor seemed fitted to the role, bringing out the best in their character.
2) the characters- perfectly imperfect,quirky and their interactions with each other made each episode special.
3) the witty banter- I applaud the writer. So very clever. This truly made the drama a joy to watch.
4) the music- brilliant

Quartet may not be everyone's cup of tea, but for me this is the best drama of the year.

I will be short with the review.

Story : This drama is mainly about four third rate musicians friendship, group struggles and their individual stories with a little bit of romance in it.

The romance here is very weird . It forms a near cycle missing one link. you will understand when you watch the drama. as far as J dramas go Quartet is a very good drama with slice of life vibes in it. The cinematography is good with snow covered locations. The 4 lead's acting is very good.

Pros :

- Good story
- Good acting
- Music is very good
- end Title song
- Light comedy

As far as cons go, the romance here is little weird and unsuccesful. Not much to say as this isn't a drama which you pull your hair out for, but a very feel good drama you watch on a slow day.

This drama is worth a 8.5 / 10.
