Yep, today’s the date for the highly-anticipated drama starring Jo In Sung, Song Hye Gyo, Kim Bum, Jung Eun Ji, etc.
Here’s one of the official poster and 1 cute picture of Kim Bum + Jung Eun Ji pair.
They are “fighting” against “IRIS 2”, which has an all-star cast (Jang Hyuk, Lee Da Hae, Lee Bum Soo, Sung Dong Il, Jo Sung Ha, Kim Young Chul, Baek Sung Hyun, Lee Joon, Yoon Doo Joon) and the currently airing “Level 7 Civil Servant”.
Based on cast alone, I would pick IRIS 2 but after watching (1 or 2 episodes) and reading recaps of both IRIS 1 and Athena, I would say you will enjoy more if you suspend your inner logic reasoning behind.

Anybody intends to watch this? I have read the recaps over at Dramabeans and well, the 2 episodes are not really that exciting, say, compared to City Hunter (yes, Lee Min Ho is HOT!)
I think I will wait for the subs to come out first (sub by DSS) before I decide to follow this drama. I like Park Shin Hye, since I saw her in Tree of Heaven, so it is very highly likely that I will watch this drama… LOL, after I finish all the drama that Im watching right now (City Hunter, Best Love and Listen to My Heart).
Campus romance to pull at ‘Heartstrings’
Director Pyo brings performing arts school to small screen
By Kwon Mee-yoo
The life and love of university performing arts students will hit the small screen today through MBC’s new drama “Heartstrings.”
Star director Pyo Min-soo returns with “fresh green” stories set at a performing arts school.
“The word ‘youth’ reminds me of many things. I will portray the sweat and passion of artistic people in this drama,” Pyo said during a press conference last Thursday. “This drama is about people dreaming of art.”
Im not sure if you have heard of him. I only knew him first in “That Fool” drama, where he played a politician’s son (I think so, need to rewatch) who’s Kim Ah Joong’s actress character boyfriend before she got into this marriage contract with Hwang Jung Ming. He was OK to me in that drama until…. “Giant”! I loved all the scenes that involved him and Hwang Jung Eum (the ones that I have watched!). That’s the only drama that Ive watched that have Joo Sang Wook in it (I know he has a lot more). Ppl said he’s a wooden actor…errr…is he?
err…Im not sure what’s the official title in English (someone help?) but I think it’s called “Flames of Ambition”. Besides Yoo Seung Ho, there are Seo Woo (as his wife ?!!!), Jo Min Ki and Shin Eun Kyung (as YSH’s mom).
He still looks like a teen to me (wait, he IS a teen! or rather adolescent) …so having him playing a character who will have a wife is like … O_O
Shin Eun Kyung’s looked kind of scary to me…
Not too sure if I will watch this or not because it’s a 50 episodes drama…Im already watching Giant and Gloria (60 and 50 episodes respectively!) and even though this drama will broadcast only in November, not too sure if I can take another 50 ep-y one.

The wedding was shown on the 8th Sep broadcast (Episode 27). ^^
I seldom see Joo Won, who played Ma Jun, smiled in this drama but these pics have his smile. ^^
oooh opening in less than 2 weeks’ time…
I dont know if I will be watching this drama or not, even though SJS is one of my fav actor. Reasons being:
- I dont really like Kim Ha Neul
- It’s a war movie – err…
LOL, maybe I just “warehouse” this first 😛
Im still not liking the cast of the Korean Hana Yori Dango – maybe need to wait until the drama is on air, watch it a bit and see ~~
Wait…(look at the pictures)… Tsukushi in short hair ? O_O But I saw in the posters, she’s in long hair… ?
