Perhaps Yonghwa is still a better musician than an actor, the scene that impresses me most is the one in episode 2 when he plays guitar duet with his father. The words he’s spoken are countable but the sadness in his face and the emotions he pours out playing the tune say it all. We know why he has this broken heart!
And of course I absolutely love that scene when he sings Because I Miss You in the club. [720 avi | mp4 for iPhone] He is Lee Shin at that moment; he’s written a song saying how much he misses his father. He thought he’s let go but found out he actually can’t let go … Pouring out emotions through his singing and guitar playing is his best skill so far. Many people wonder how a young man like him is capable of writing such great music and touching lyrics at this age. He just turned 22 (23) on Jun 22. I had this thought too. Then I remembered Howard Gardner’s theory of multiple intelligences I read before. Musical intelligence in a person develops early and language skills are typically highly developed in those whose base intelligence is musical. Plus, musical intelligence grows with age … So we can expect even more awesome music from the talented singer-song-writer, Jung Yonghwa, in the coming years!
Can the following scene erase comments like these? “He’s never bad but just boring.” “He’s a cardboard box with a pretty face.”
Hmm … some may argue that the background music (instrumental version of Because I Miss You) helps a lot. If people still weren’t impressed by his acting in Heartstrings until the very end but would become interested in him as a musician who can write beautiful music and words, I’d be happy enough. Maybe I don’t watch enough K dramas. Who else writes a song and sings for his/her own drama and catches skyrocket attention even before the official OST release?
I’m not that kind of drama addict who watches the drama episodes over and over (I don’t watch You’re Beautiful that many times). But I think I’ll watch Heartstrings more times, at least I’ve cut the music scenes and put them into my iPhone.
Sharing more avi and mp4 cuts I made from episode 1 and 2.
Just when CNBLUE debuted with Bluetory in Korea, many questioned if a pretty face who wins hearts through a drama debut can sing. Now he’s “an idol who sang yesterday but suddenly becomes an actor” …
I’ll be a fool to say “rating doesn’t mean anything” but I believe “rating isn’t everything”. Yonghwa hwaiting!!!
