I finished watching the last 2 episodes of "Heartstrings" this week although it ended last week in Korea as i was busy watching another Korean drama "Brilliant Legacy" which caught my attention after Channel U started showing it on TV. There has been negative reviews about "Heartstrings" online and its ratings were not good in Korea and some viewers feel that the drama started off quite well and showed potential midway but ended up getting boring in the last few episodes as there was not much excitement in the plot.
You can read this article which gave 3 reasons why the writer felt the drama was not appealing. I admit that "Heartstrings" did not fall into the categories of really fantastic and awesome dramas like recent dramas "The Greatest Love", "49 Days" or "Secret Garden" did as those dramas have alot of bittersweet romance between the main leads which endears the characters to viewer's hearts but i still enjoyed watching "Heartstring" for its simple and direct plot and i love the sweet romance between the main leads and feel that sometimes it is quite nice and relaxing to watch a drama without all the bittersweet and complicated romance.
I love the scene in episode 14 where Jun Hee kept interrupting Hun Jun's mother from trying to reassure Hun Jun that her operation will go smoothly. He was so comical talking non-stop to the exasperation of Hun Jun's mother but he ended up cheering both of them with his endless and childlike chattering.
I love the song that Kyo Won performed with Gi Young and am listening to the drama OST while typing now :) This has been a relaxing and fun drama to watch and i love Park Shin Hye's dressing in the drama and the great chemistry she shares with Jung Yong Hwa in the drama. The cute bear handphone charms that both of them were using in the drama were also really cute and i'm sure some fans of the drama will be hoping to get their hands on them ;)
I also did a post previously about Park Shin Hye's dressing in the drama and her dressing has been more ladylike and mature as the drama progresses and i love her long dresses in the last few episodes which makes her look really lovely and womanly unlike the previous youthful and girlish image. I have included some pictures below:
