show off. let you know what the DVDs look like and tell you about the content.
7 discs in a box. 2 volumes (disc 1-4; disc 5-7). Fronts.
Disc 6 and 7 are the special features. True that drama dvds are expensive but I’d spend money just for the special features. There’s English subs in the episodes but not the special features, that makes the set less than perfect. Still, talk about hours of special features!
Disc 6: Video sketch (1 hour), NG suit (30 mins), Heartstrings Special (that random cut one they used to fill the time slot when Shinhye was in the hospital)
I watched the music scenes part right away and love that I can see Yonghwa play the guitar all the time behind the scenes … fans who went to the sets reported that he always played, even during breaks. Maybe you’ve watched rips already. Just want to share my favorite part. Lee Shin’s guitar solo at the Centennial Musical.

Some people say Yonghwa’s wasting time doing the drama. Actually, people have all sorts of opinions on what Yonghwa or the CNBLUE boys should do or should not do. According to fan reports (but some people say the fan reports are biased) and the BTS in the DVDs, I’m quite sure that Yonghwa enjoyed the filming. I read a long Japanese magazine interview he had lately. I think he wants a drama career in addition to his music career. He said he wants to be seen as a different person when he’s acting. He even joked that he’s considered using another name as an actor, say “Jung Yong” … I sincerely hope that he’ll be luckier next time. Basically Yonghwa and Shinhye saved the show. Darn the PD/script writer fighting with MBC thingy! I have problem with the plot: Lee Shin’s sudden change from being cold to being “too caring”, and the story’s changed from Lee Shin’s dream to Kyuwon’s dream; even Lee Shin’s hair and wardrobe … But I’m happy enough that Yonghwa’s done a drama. Heartstrings is a “Jung Yong Hwa drama” to me (don’t mean to offend Shinhye’s fans). If you know how many YAB collectibles I’ve gathered, you won’t be surprised that I’ll buy everything Heartstrings … Get ready to be bombarded with Heartstrings goodies in the coming days (provided I won’t be too busy to scan stuff and all). 😉
