Episodes 3 and 4 of “Do You Like Brahms?” continue to charm viewers with their soft and lyrical nature just as the premiere episodes did. As tensions continue to rise between both friend groups, Chae Song Ah (Park Eun Bin) and Park Joon Young (Kim Min Jae) gravitate towards each other. Here are some of the things we loved and hated about the new episodes.

Warning: spoilers for the episodes below. 

LOVED: When Park Joon Young comforts Chae Song Ah

The stand out scene in the third episode is the ending. After having a tearful conversation with Kang Min Sung (Bae Da Bin) about Yoon Dong Yoon (Lee Yoo Jin), Song Ah confronts Joon Young in the piano room. She pieces together that Joon Young stopped her from seeing her friends’ heated confrontation in the staircase the other night at dinner. Without words, Joon Young walks back to the piano and begins to play Beethoven’s “Moonlight Sonata” and near the end transitions it into the “Happy Birthday” song. Afterwards, he bravely stands up, asks Song Ah if she would like to be friends, and embraces her.

This scene is the epitome of romance. Earlier in the episode, Jung Kyung discusses the idea that Joon Young speaks through music rather than words and actions. One detail that makes this scene so extraordinary is that not only does he console Song Ah with music, but he verbally and physically consoles her as well. Song Ah’s voiceover really clues in viewers on how moved she is by Joon Young, and it’s just absolutely delightful. If this is how he acts when they’re just friends, viewers can only imagine how his charms will grow when the pair becomes a couple. Of course, the best detail has to be that Joon Young played her the “Happy Birthday” song. It’s so subtle that you may not catch it on your first listen, but it really speaks volumes on how much he already cares for her. He didn’t want her to leave the practice room upset, and he consoled her in such a tender way.

I think this conversation/interview was so important and heartbreaking. But what actually broke me was Joon Young wondering what he did so wrong in his previous life for him to live like this now. Can you imagine that he is walking through his life, thinking of it as a burden?

:criesariver:

 

What's so interesting to me is that, yes, Song Ah and Joon Young are very similar in their personality but also very different. While she has this dream of playing the violin but apparently not the talent. Joon Young does have the talent but this isn't his dream. And I think she is slowly coming to realize that not everyone in this music world is happy, just because the talent is there. I don't think she thinks that way. And if anything the encounter with the conductor in the first episode 1 was a wakeup call but still... I think to get to know Joon Young from his non-PR side is important.

I will borrow this quote from the Dramabeans`sarticle.

 

"The friendship between Joon-young and Song-ah is not only everything they needed, but everything they didn’t know they needed. I love watching them interact no matter what they’re doing — whether they’re smiling when they spot each other across the street, running interference for each other, or chatting at Cheongyecheon after dinner. Imagine when they finally play together?"

 

I totally agree. They need this friedship ana that friendship will be the healing factor for both of them. This friendship will turn into romance but that`s not what is importan right now. I love how happy they are when they spend quality time together. They are honest and empathic with each other, they can open up and comunicate really well. I also expect to see them playing together. I think that Joon Young will rediscover the beauty of music through Song Ah. He doesn`t have to participate in competitions anymore. I wish he will start doing what he really wants.

I wholeheartedly agree. I also think that the most important thing is that both of them will discover something for themselves. I actually also believe that Song Ah will realize she doesn't need to be perfect to be good at playing the violin. And it's been suggested she will play again. And I'm hoping and actually looking forward to Joon Young and Song Ah playing together.

So far Song Ah enjoys playing her instrument more than Joon Young. She has an insecurity and maybe she is not a top notch musician but she is an incredible woman. I envy her. To start a second speciality just because she wanted to do music is not something ordinary. There are a lot of people who have more specialities but she started playing violin late. Learning music is hard. And violin is the hardest instrument to learn.

I want her to continue to enjoy playing music. As you said she doesn`t have to be perfect. 

 Looking forward seeing them playing together. Show, do not disappoint us. :D

Let's hope the drama won't disappoint us but I'm cautiously optimistic that the drama is aiming for this development. And you're so right! I'm not sure but I think Song Ah graduated even in business but then switched her major. That's certainly something that would give me anxiety. But for her it shows she might look fragile and soft in personality but apparently when she wants something she is able to do it. :D

“Do You Like Brahms?” Reveals Sneak Peek Of Park Eun Bin Looking Distraught In Slippers

SBS’s “Do You Like Brahms?” has unveiled a new glimpse of Park Eun Bin from its upcoming episode!

In the new romance drama about classical musicians, Park Eun Bin plays the role of Chae Song Ah, an aspiring violinist who defies others’ advice and sets out to pursue her love of music later in life than most of her peers.

Despite facing many obstacles—and repeatedly finding herself beaten down by the harshness of reality—she is determined to achieve her dream, and world-renowned pianist Park Joon Young (played by Kim Min Jae) becomes an unexpected source of comfort along the way.

In newly released stills from the drama’s upcoming episode, Chae Song Ah looks exhausted and hopeless as she sits alone in the rehearsal room. Staring off into the distance with a look of sad resignation, the violinist is notably sporting casual slippers that clash with her formal suit, piquing viewers’ curiosity as to how she ended up in such an outfit and why she is all by herself.

Hello everyone. I'm enjoying everyone's comments so far.

And hello chingu @Nodame. Good to see you on this thread, too! :heart:

Spoiler

Nodame, did you notice in ep5 preview that the OTP are at Deoksugung Palace Stonewall? I'm having a sqee moment because that's where My Unfamiliar Family OTP met up, too. Oh my gosh.

 

And I'm loving the overall theme in both Do You Like Brahms? and Record of Youth is about going for your dreams and working towards it. 

 

I'm caught up with all of the episodes, but it is my first time going back and rewatching ep1 several times. There's something so captivating about it that I don't get bored rewatching it. I also played it in the background when I decided to draw Joon Young waiting in backstage and going out to play with the orchestra (ep1) 

Spoiler

 

FWqHlgl.jpg

 

 

I also love the watercolor and episode title in the beginning of each episode because it beautifully hints what I'm going to see next. 

Ep1: Träumerei (Dream)

Ep2: Poco Poco (Slowly and Gradually)

Ep3: Innig (Heartfelt)

Ep4: Non Troppo (Not too much)

 

Both main characters, Joon Young and Song Ah, have a passion for music, but they are in different standpoints. Joon Young's name as a pianist is out there. He's successful from an outward perspective. On the other hand, Song Ah sees the aura of his profession, passion and success. She sees him as a superstar. When she was watching the concert backstage, she compared her passion to his passion: "The music he brought to life was so passionate. What I had inside of me felt so small and shabby." 

I want to tell her that she's just as passionate as Joon Young. She declared her major after studying business. She applied and got rejected several times to Seoryeong University. She kept on trying until she got accepted! (Lesson: Don't compare yourself to others.) 

Sometimes I can feel her dejectedness and exhaustion. Her excitement, which contrasted with her orchestra mates' indifferent behavior, to play at the Seoul Art Center was short circuited when the conductor decided that the sound of the violins are too loud. Her parents worry about her future and her sister asks if she has a plan.

When she's in her room on her phone, she searches for Joon Young's performance of Träumerei which isn't there. And she notes to herself, "There are so many dreams except for the one that I'm looking for." She feels lost and I feel her emptiness. 

On the other hand, JoonYoung seems successful from the outside, but he's struggling internally. His relationship with Jung Kyung, his mom's financial dependence, his thoughts about his scholarship and his connection to playing the piano. 

 

Both characters feel this pressure in pursuing their dreams. And whether they are successful or not, their feelings are complex and valid. I can't wait to see them grow. What I'm not ready is when the two love triangles are going to get messy.

“Do You Like Brahms?” Previews Awkward Reunion Between Kim Min Jae And Joo Suk Tae

SBS’s “Do You Like Brahms?” has revealed new stills ahead of the upcoming episode!

“Do You Like Brahms?” is a romance drama about talented classical music students chasing love, happiness, and dreams. Kim Min Jae stars as world-renowned pianist Park Joon Young, while Park Eun Bin plays Chae Song Ah, a violinist who set out to pursue her love of music later in life than her peers.

Spoilers

Although Park Joon Young made a name for himself as the first Korean pianist to place in the International Chopin Piano Competition, few people know about his family’s difficult financial situation. After his family went into debt paying for his lesson fees, Park Joon Young worked hard to be successful and pay off his family’s debt.

The new stills reveal a meeting between Park Joon Young and the piano instructor who helped him rise to fame, Yoo Tae Jin (Joo Suk Tae). Park Joon Young sits awkwardly on the sofa as he faces his teacher for the first time in a long time. Another still shows Yoo Tae Jin with his arm around Park Joon Young’s shoulder as they pose with his prize at the International Chopin Piano Competition.

Thank you, @Jillia :heart:  Your GIF is making me squee. oooh my gosh.

@Nodame Thank you so much! All is well. I am gaining so much strength through Song Ah's character. She's telling me it's okay even if I feel lost right now with my dream. 

 

I am getting goosebumps watching videos of Kim Min Jae and Park Eun Bin playing their instruments. They are so dedicated in their craft of acting. It's very admirable.

You're welcome, @ponderings! :D And believe me I squeed a lot this morning when I shared it here. Like I have a thing for all this Jane Austen "looking at eachother, barely holding hands" kind of storytelling. Can you imagine what will happen when we get episode 5 tomorrow?

:omg:
