Kim Myung Min will be making his comeback to the small screen in the 16-episode MBC miniseries "Beethoven Virus" (Script Hong Jin Ah, Hong Ja Ram; PD Lee Jae Gyu), set to air in July.

Kim Myung Min will be playing Kang Gun Woo, an orchestra conductor in his 40's. His character is an elite conductor with a very bad reputation, and who will do absolutely anything in order to create the very best music. But due to his self-righteous and stubborn personality that makes him think only his thoughts are correct, he is unable to form good relationships with those around him. Also, he is an elite conductor who insists that classical music is made for nobility only.

Gun Woo is a 'workaholic' and has a very troublesome personality, and thus seems similar to the character of Jang Joon Hyuk in the drama "White Tower". Kim Myung Min has gotten the opportunity to harden his acting skills by playing another unique character. "Beethoven Virus" draws the story of people who've been abandoned by music, and have abandoned music themselves, and who create an orchestra and encounter many difficulties. This story will concentrate on classical music, and thus brings to mind the popular Japanese manga "Nodame Cantabile".

The script is by the Hong Jin Ah-Hong Ja Ram sisters, who wrote "Taereung National Village" and "Over the Rainbow", and the PD is Lee Jae Gyu, who directed "Damo" and "Fashion 70s".

Lee Ji Ah will playing the role of 27 years old "Du Ru Mi", a frank and lively talented girl who plays the violin by the ear. She may seem womanly and elegant on the surface but she is tomboyish girl who even dares to share adult videos with her male friends.

Jang Geun Suk will be playing "Kang Gun Woo" a person who is gifted musically with the perfect pitch and will form a love triangle with conductor "Kang Gun Woo" who has the same name as him and Du Ru Mi.

Synopsis

Two musicians who retired from their musical careers for different reasons join together with a demanding and difficult genius conductor to form an orchestra against all odds.
Although it requires a lot of hard work to form their orchestra, they keep chasing their dreams of doing what they love the most in the world and this gives them great satisfaction.
Three young and old people with different personalities and life experiences gather together under a common dream and they find love and the room to forgive each other as they eventually earn each other’s respect. The drama exudes a positive energy.

He is an elitist and never settles for second best.
With an oversized ego, he has a righteous attitude and thinks he’s superior to everybody else. He does not like to socialize with people.
He believes that you need talented players in order to give marvelous performances.
Thus, he abhors players with mediocre talent and treats them with disdain.
This is how he earned the nickname, “Orchestra Killer” and went on to become a legendary musical figure in Korea.

image

Durumi / actress E. Ji-ah

She is true to her inner desires and has a positive outlook on life.

image

Kang Gun-woo / actor Jang Keun-suk
Age: 24. A genius conductor. Trumpet player
He shares the same name as conductor Kang Ma-ae.
He’s straightforward, frank, cool and open. He’s a man of character.

    .i have heard of someone trying to do a kversion of Nodamae Cantabille lol i will never expect they will pick Kim Myung Min . he abit er not so young for the role ? but never mind i think they will revised the role ? for him ..i guess they are just losely using Nodamae as a structure for the story ?

    Nodamae Cantabille is also another jdrama i love!! ..gosh the music in it .was pure enjoyment , i never look at conducting in the same way after i watch Nodamae Cantabille�

    Wonder if this is going to be a weekend drama. If it airs after Bittersweet Life (24 episodes starting 3 May), then it looks like it'll be 26 July for Ep 1. Four months of waiting. But that's okay. It's Kim Myung Min!! image image

    Four months might be the perfect timing for us. We need time to go through the 100+ episodes of The Immortal YSS. Heheee.
    With Open City coming on DVD on April 10 & this new drama, looks like we'll be seeing lots of KMM for the next few months. =)

    From DaheeFanel's translation, the revised storyline/character seems tailor-made for KMM. I'm sure he'll be amazing as usual.

    Oh Shirley, I have Nodamae Cantabille but I kept putting it off for other dramas/movies; was worried that it's too-teenager type of dramas. Now that I read your comments, I should start it soon.

    I wonder who will be the female lead?

    Yes, papers mentioned that this is the current trend. Some Korean works get remade by Japan as well.

    김명민, 한국판 '노다메 칸타빌레' 지휘자로 안방 컴백
    2008-03-27 15:05:57

    image

    [마이데일리 = 고홍주 기자] 배우 김명민이 한국판 노다메 칸다빌레의 주인공으로 낙점됐다.

    김명민은 MBC를 통해 방송 예정인 '베토벤 바이러스'(극본 홍진아 홍자람, 연출 이재규)로 브라운관에 컴백한다.

    '베토벤 바이러스'는 음악으로부터 버림 받았거나 스스로 음악을 버린 사람들이 모여서 오케스트라로 어우러지는 과정을 그릴 작품이다. '클래식 오케스트라'를 다루고 있다는 점에서 동명의 일본 만화로 공전의 히트를 기록한 드라마 '노다메 칸타빌레'와 닮은 꼴로 주목 받고 있다.

    김명민은 극중 정통 엘리트 코스를 밟은 냉소적인 지휘자 강건우로 분할 예정으로, 그의 브라운관 복귀는 지난해 3월 종영한 MBC '하얀거탑' 이후 1년 4개월여 만이다. 특히 '하얀거탑'에서 야망에 눈이 먼 천재 외과의사 장준혁으로 열연했던 그는 이번 작품에서도 최고의 소리를 위해 독단적인 면모도 숨기지 않는 지휘자로 등장해 다시 한 번 발군의 연기력을 선보일 예정이다.

    극본은 '태릉선수촌', '오버 더 레인보우' 등을 집필한 홍진아, 홍자람 자매가 맡았으며 '다모', '패션 70s' 등의 히트작을 배출한 이재규 PD가 메가폰을 잡아 합작한다. 자세한 편성은 아직 확정되지 않았다.

    이재규 PD는 27일 "현재 김명민씨만 캐스팅이 확정된 상태고, 아직 캐스팅이 진행중이다. 4월 중순쯤 캐스팅을 마무리하고 본격적인 작업에 착수할 계획이다"고 밝혔다.

    Fantastic!!! Finally Kim Myung-min is back!! After "Return" and "White Tower" one of my most favorite actors.

    But then again, since it's a MBC production, we won't get an English subtitled Korean release on DVD. That means we have to wait probably until 2009 when we hopefully get an subtitled version from MBC America or YA Entertainment. In the subtitle aspect, MBC sucks!!!

    Thank Goodness the Kr have decided to raise the age of the main characters. Hopefully the acting will be down to earth. I watched the Jp Nodame C after the rave reviews but couldn't get beyond the middle of the second episode. The girl was too shrieky for my taste; in fact, all the acting in the drama was overdone and exaggerated. Finally, I don't dig guys who over makeup and the main character..... Nothing seemed real about that drama.
