Heartstrings is pretty much the perfect thing to rewatch on a beach vacation - it's light, it's not particularly brainy or invokes some deeply-hidden emotions. It's just a sweet look at young love that brings back my own college days.



So I've been rewatching it...

Some cuteness from ep 13 )

What a cute cute drama!

While I am still sorting through 2000+ caps of CYHMH, have some caps from ep 12 of Heartstrings as a result of my rewatching Gyewon/Shin scenes.

Why are those two so perfect? And why does it make me nostalgic for my own college days and my first months with Mr. Mousie (who is even more awesome than Shin, even if sans guitar).

The most adorable thing in adorableness land )

Whenever Heartstrings tries to do traditional plot, it falters - I have zero interest in performance shenanigans - it's a school production, not Broadway, and in any event, Gyu Won is a gageum player, not an actress so whether she gets to perform or stay an understudy seems supremely not to matter for her future (that is why Hee Joo and her mother's plotting strikes me as kinda insane). And Shin has a band and will continue to have it and perform and write music whatever goes on with the anniversary show (yeah, it's a fun exercise for him to write a fusion classical/rock piece but that is all that is) so to ask me to be invested seems weird. And I continue to have zero interest in the various-rival-professors storyline. I don't hate the plotty bits or anything but in comparison with organic, realistic, freestyle 'Shin and Gyuwon fall in love' aspect which feels like you are peeking on real people, it falls flat. Most of this ep, however, was not plot but Shin and Gyuwon together, and so I was a happy happy camper.

Also? How much do I love that there is no stupid misunderstanding on Shin's part that Gyuwon likes the Director. For once, a male lead who uses his brains!

Caaaaaaps of gorgeousness here )

This drama reminds me a lot of Mary Stayed Out All Night and not just because of rocker-falls-for-girl storyline. The script of HS makes about a million times more sense than MSOAN's, but they share the same thing - whenever the plot happens it just gets in the way of what really makes the drama tick - the insane chemistry between the leads and the quirkiness and appeal of the main twosome.

I haven't seen anything this real and pitch-perfect in a good long time. The way they shine around each other with quiet happiness. Wow. They have incredible incredible once-in-a-lifetime chemistry.

It really needs no words )

It's official - I adore Heartstrings precisely because it has no real plot. What it is, is that rarest of all rare beast - a kdrama slice of life (just like the PD's past Worlds Within was). Nothing insane happens (and why would it?) - we just watch these characters we've grown to love go through their days. And I know I could be happy watching Shin and Gyu Won forever - just doing the usual couple things, falling more and more in love. Heartstrings is that rare drama where I feel the relationship is real - this is how real people behave. It reminds me almost unbearably of my own college days and meeting and falling for Mr. Mousie (we sat next to each other in class :P) It conveys that giddy, hyper-real feeling of first love, and the excitement of exploring the world in college.

So amazing.

Some caps from the ep. Enter here for Shin's adorable grins )

So yes, working through backlog

Ep 9 of Heartstrings is purely awesome, just like the state of Gyu Won's skin )

Out of all the airing kdramas, this and The Princess' Man are by far my favorite.

Here's my tally of eps seen of currently airing dramas btw (first number is number of eps seen, second number of eps out):

Hayate the Combat Butler - 2/6
Heartstrings - 9/10
Ikemen Desu Ne - 3/3
Material Queen - 1/6
Myung Wol the Spy - 6/8
Ouran High School Host Club - 1/2
The Princess' Man 3/5
Warrior Baek Dong Soo - 7/10

Unlike a lot of the fandom, I liked eps 5 and 6. But ep 7 was the first time I truly loved the drama, where I ended the episode desperate for more, wanting the next ep in my greedy hands now now now now.

FINALLY! Shin and Gyu Won have more interaction in ep 7 than they did in the rest of the ep combined. And let's face it - that is what we are watching the drama for and Jung Yong Hwa and Park Shin Hye's insane chemistry is the selling point.

Some caps and thoughts )

I've liked this drama before in a mellow sort of way. But this is the first time I am desperate to have the next ep now now now. Because now it's both real (reminds me of my own college days) and romantic.

Viva Heartstrings!

I finally got a chance to watch ep 6 with subs and despite the fandom opinion I really like it.



Perhaps this is because I am not really watching this for romance/as a romance story, but a lovely, slice-of-life tale of growing up. And it had so many lovely lovely scenes.

Have just finished ep 2 of Hayate the Combat Butler and such love! It's not a particularly meta-able drama, but I love its quirky manga sensibility, its fast pace, its mysteries which keep my attention, and above all the adorable, shippable, darling OTP. The are so pretty together!





Oh, and her voice can bring him back from the dead. That's always a nifty thing to have around.





Ahem. I did not just post the above sequence just because of a bare-chested pic. Nope.

In conclusion:



So! Cute! Park Shin Hye, ditch Shin from Heartstrings as he only wants to mack on an older woman anyway, and make out like bunnies with your sexay yet lethal butler.

Hmmm. I am beginning to think that this drama would be best watched in one gulp, so I can ff and skip past all the annoying Shin/Ballerina (LOL, is it a Goong homage?) scenes and get to the parts when the OTP hooks up.

Thoughts, caps etc behind cut )
