Kang Gun Woo is a world renowned orchestra maestro who is a perfectionist in his work. He is not an easy person to work with and is feared by all his musicians. By chance, he comes across Du Ru Mi, a violinist, and a young cop who has the same name as his and discovers that even without formal training, the young Kang is a musical genius. The three soon get tangled in a love triangle.
I was excited to watch this but I couldn't suffer through more than 1.5 episodes of the female lead. It's 2016 (ok, 2009 or whenever this was filmed) Korea, your female leads needn't be harebrained fools with no common sense or backbone, expecting a few tears or pouty faces or hollering to make up for sheer idiocy. It kills the story before it's even begun. Everything ELSE about this seems great, but her character is like 50% of this, making it unpalatable. Without her in it, this would be a solid 8. Shame on the writers, really. Writing female characters with a little more substance and intelligence won't kill you, you know.
