So... I watched the episode raw and the last scene touched me so much! I loved how Joon Young mirrored Song Ah. Like YES! And I loved Song Ah's speech as well.   Song Ah: "Träumerei. I thou

How to say goodbye to this drama? I haven't watched a lot of dramas this year. More than I did last year I believe but still not a lot and I definitely dropped a lot and those I finished I love, flaws

Hi! I hope it's not too late for my two cents on episodes 5 and 6. A new semester just started, so I've been busy with all the requirements. But hey, here we go! 

 

In general, I loved both episodes. It's nice that they're introducing the flaws of our main characters, because it makes the drama more realistic. For the first few episodes, I'd like to think that we've focused on their strengths. This makes it easier to understand the characters' flaws because we've seen how good they can be. Now, we're given a glimpse into their weaknesses, which become more significant as the plot moves on. I'm excited for the part where all of our characters experience growth, but while we're not there yet, let's focus on the now.

 

Since I've finished watching episode 5 last Wednesday and episode 6 today, some details may be fuzzy, so I decided to comment on the events based on the characters, not the episodes. Without further ado, let's start with Jung Kyung.

 

Lee Jung Kyung. Jung Kyung's actions as of lately are definitely inexcusable, and no explanation will justify the bad things she did. What's rude is rude. However, I'd like to look at Jung Kyung in an understanding way, which may help us find out why she did the things she did.

 

As we all know, Jung Kyung's mother died when she was young. That was the turning point. After that, we could say that everything went downhill. She became motherless, and along the line she lost her 'prodigy status' as well. Yes, she still is talented, but a lot of people around her were disappointed that she didn't maximize her potential. 

 

That's two things on her plate. When you're young, the feeling that you're not as good as people thought you were is really hard on you. Couple that with the devastating loss of someone you loved, oh boy, that's a bit unbearable for a child, don't you think? 

 

Enter Joon Young. From what I know, Joon Young was friends with Jung Kyung first. Through the years, Jung Kyung became attached to Joon Young, but I don't think she developed feelings for him early on. I think she just viewed him as someone that would always be by her side. In my opinion, she really loved Hyeon Ho, which is why she entered a relationship with him. The videos of the two of them show that they were happy with each other, regardless of status. 

 

Now, let's go back. If Jung Kyung didn't like Joon Young, why did she kiss him in New York? Well, let's remember that Jung Kyung already lost two of the things that were important to her: her mother and her 'talent'. Losing can mean death, or in some cases it may mean 'drifting away' or becoming unreachable, which was the case with Joon Young. Because of his talent, he was going to a place Jung Kyung couldn't reach, and because of that, Jung Kyung made use of his feelings for her to make him stay - which of course was a really bad thing to do. 

 

Since she was always with Hyeon Ho, she treated him as something that she wouldn't lose (& grew tired of him along the way) and focused on Joon Young more. I think she confused her selfishness (her desire to make Joon Young stay by her side) with love. 

 

Joon Young was drifting away even before Song Ah came into the equation, but Song Ah's presence troubled Jung Kyung further. Add the pressure of being a director for the foundation and her lingering feelings for Hyeon Ho (she cried when the rosin broke), here we have a very selfish, troubled, and broken woman. I still do think that she deserves a second chance. I hope she heals well this time. 

 

Hahn Hyeon Ho. Ah, I want to hug this guy. Hyeon Ho is such a kind person, especially when it comes to Jung Kyung. It's just sad that because of Jung Kyung's actions, he and Joon Young are experiencing a rift in their friendship, when they were so happy together to begin with. 

 

Like Joon Young, he works hard and stays humble, but because of this he is becoming more and more insecure of both Jung Kyung and Joon Young. While Joon Young is financially struggling like him, Joon Young's talent makes up for it. But what does Hyeon Ho have? That was the point brought up by Director Na, and it actually makes sense. I hope Hyeon Ho begins to help himself improve, because this insecurity will haunt him if he does nothing about it. I hope he applies to become a professor at the university. 

 

We know that Hyeon Ho could've done something to clarify things with Joon Young, but his passive-aggresive actions are actually realistic. When misunderstandings arise, the right thing to do is to communicate, but as usual, it's easier said than done. I hope he gets his peace of mind soon. 

 

Yoon Dong Yoon. Song Ah's supportive friend. There's still a lot we should see from Yoon Dong Yoon, but if there's something I like from the scenes that showed him, it's his conversation with Hyeon Ho. The drama pointed out that you can always change paths until you find your passion, because it will give you a lot of happiness in the end - everything will be worth it. Yes, Dong Yoon didn't continue playing the violin, but he's totally winning out there with his skills and business! That's what I want to find - genuine happiness doing the things you love, for a long time. 

 

Kang Min Seong. Aside from being Song Ah's friend, we haven't really seen much of Min Seong. Her friendship with Song Ah is so cute, and she is such a nice friend (although she may be totally clueless at times and bad with timing). However, I want to see her musical side. After all, she has a poster with a cello. I want to see her growth. I hope she doesn't get reduced to the lead's best friend and love rival (at first) for this drama. 

 

Park Joon Young. Joon Young ssi! One of the nicest guys in dramaland. It's so nice that he's still a nice person despite everything he's going through. We are also able to understand why he acts the way he does, despite it being disappointing sometimes. 

 

Joon Young has always lived a life of service, a life where he gives his all to the people around him. Ironically, this does not always translate into music. He often plays for the purpose of earning money and giving back to the foundation (in concerts and competitions), but he isn't really giving the best performance a musician can give because he has never been "free". He doesn't play from the heart, he plays because of his obligations. There are a few moments where he does, and he is either alone or is playing for someone he loves, which is Song Ah (and previously, Träumerei for Jung Kyung). I hope he can play from the heart on a regular basis. 

 

Music aside, I hope Joon Young learns to open up. We've seen how happy and free (and braver!!) he can be around Song Ah, but he still has some walls to break down before he can truly be free (and be himself, for that matter). However, he has to exert more effort to do so, as his responsibilities as a friend (and boyfriend?) become heavier the more Song Ah and him become close. Song Ah shouldn't always be the one to initiate the deep conversations, he should learn to communicate his troubles as well. However, we still applaud him for the hug, CD, pinky promise, dinner, and other things he initiated. Still, he has to learn to communicate heavier things. 

 

Chae Song Ah. Song Ah ssi! What a brave girl! I was totally cheering for the 'I don't want to be your friend' scene to be the confession scene, but because it wasn't, I was like 'okay, let's just watch the episode'. But! Unexpectedly, we have a confession at the end of the episode! This is such a big leap from her unrequited love (which she didn't confess to anyway) for Dong Yoon. This time, our girl takes the reins and goes for it! It's also cool to see how brave she is when she's with Joon Young, with her speaking up her mind about the things she wants and doesn't want to do. She is also able to tell Joon Young her opinions (talent vs hard work/dreaming). I hope Joon Young does the same as well, soon. 

 

Confession scene aside, I was a bit heartbroken for her after all the misunderstandings (Joon Young with Hyeon Ho, not Jung Kyung; Jung Kyung at the apartment) but we all know how deeply Joon Young cares for her. So I say let's let the leads work this out and patiently wait for their sweet moments. After all, there are bound to be disagreements between friends (and lovers), so let's just buckle up and hope that those make them stronger. 

 

That was a bit long! Haha. Anyway, I'm so excited for episode 7! I hope we see a hug after that confession. Or something more? Let's see. 

 

Stay safe and healthy, everyone!

Omo! Thank you for sharing the new stills, @annamchoi! :D

 

So we get more awkward moments now Joon Young knows how Song Ah feels about him and I'm here for it.

:fullofhearts:

My pleasure sweetie..all for the love my  twosome pair! :heart4:expect some akwardness between these two, but I hope JY will stay the same as though he heard nothing..but on SA's part it will definitely affect how she will treat JY now that she confessed.and a sort of threat from JK. But I feel that its all JY's decision  of how he will treat the confession of SA.I think also that on his part he still wants her to be around and be friends with her.I think both of them are eachother's comfort zone and refuge.both are undergoing persomal issues and that more than ever they both need someone to lean on.

 

I just saw this. Does anyone have an ideA about this..Thanks

Hopefully, episode 7 will be really a good episode I like to see how JY will handle the rumours of them dating and that SA has been ceitized about it.and what made upsets her.

Thank you so much, @rafeusjanela! :D It's always a pleasure to read your thoughts on the episodes and characters. I'm also looking forward to episode 7. I'm sure we're in for a treat in the upcoming episodes.:wub:

 

@annamchoi

The poster you shared is about the survey I talked about earlier. Knetz are eager to have the Director's Cut for this drama come true. So they're still doing surveys to find out the demand for the DVD/Bluray. :D

 

As for Song Ah and Joon Young, they were awkward before already but I expect some more awkwardness. But I also think like @rafeusjanela, they will sort things out including the misunderstanding with Hyun Ho and Jung Kyung.

 

I think as well that both should also follow their own dreams and solve their own personal issues they're dealing with right now. But I think it's actually a nice balance for them to have something good and sweet to look forward to when they're dating. But let's see how the drama will surprise us.

from the preciew, it feel like JY has not actually turn SA down. If he turn her down they wouldnt be in a position to be gossiped about for being a couple....

but then again..kdrama preview most of the time are misleading of the event sequence in the drama... most of the time the 1st sequence in  the preview come out later in the episode

*analyzing kdrama is such a hard work :P

Kim Min Jae Sits Through A Tense Piano Lesson In “Do You Like Brahms?”

Kim Min Jae has his back against the wall in new stills for SBS’s “Do You Like Brahms?”

“Do You Like Brahms?” is a drama about classical music students who fight for their dreams amidst the harsh realities of life. Kim Min Jae stars as Park Joon Young, a genius pianist who has complex emotions about playing the piano.

Park Joon Young has the kind of talent that others envy, but he himself feels pressured by his talent. He grew up in a poor family and turned to the piano in order to make a living. He became famous and took on a challenging schedule of performances in order to survive. After years of this, he finally gained the chance to take a break. However, it seems that the life he has chosen is not so easy to escape.

In the new stills released on September 20, Park Joon Young is receiving lessons from his teacher, Yoo Tae Jin (Joo Suk Tae). Park Joon Young’s posture is rigid and his expression is tight, suggesting that he is not enthusiastic about returning to piano lessons. Yoo Tae Jin is not sympathetic to his pupil’s reluctance, creating tension between them.

Awww @gracebkk @rukizie that clip and new stills!!

 

these two are so cute! And are we already going to be watching them in their last semester? Didn’t school just begin? Lol. Or did they mean we will see their hearts grow as the semester passes by??


new episode tomorrow! Yass!!

 

I think it’s because both of them only have 1 semester left before they can graduate, hence why they said we’ll be watching their last semester (even though school just started).

Awww!! These two make my heart flutter!! I hope we actually see the whole scene. It better not be cut.

 

@gracebkk ah i see. So the semester ending is before going to graduate school? 

Yep! :) The last semester before graduation from undergraduate program (thus before graduate school, if SA does end up entering graduate school). 

 

I wonder if we'll get to see SA entering graduate school though.. Or will she end up going to graduate school even after knowing the professor's true intention (because I'm predicting that she'll find out in the later episodes)? My guess is she will probably still go to graduate school even after knowing because she loves violin too much that she'll take any chances she can get, even if the professor doesn't have the purest intention (I mean.. She was even willing to take a chance to appeal to the maestro to stay in the performance, although it failed). And maybe, after seeing SA's strong resolution towards music, this will finally move JY's heart to fall in love again with piano? :)

I can’t wait to see their semester together :D i think SA will still take her chances although she will be hurt to know she was used to get some kind connections from the professor. But perhaps we will then see a more intimate comfort scene from JY to SA because of this? Lol. I know SA loves the violin a lot and is willing to do anything to improve her talent and get better at it. But I have this feeling she will feel “betrayed” from the truth of the professor and may feel even more stepped on. She probably won’t say anything harsh to the professor and may end up feeling grateful for the opportunity. However, she will feel worse about her ability and talent because of the professor’s true intentions. Yet, JY may be the one to continue believing in her and in turn, he may come to truly believe in the piano. Thing is, if JY never loved the piano to begin with, he will end up finding something else to love. And perhaps SA will guide him. These two were meant to meet each other for other reasons than to just love ;)

 

@rukizie oh no. It’s Jung Kyung.

Please don’t make me have to slap her again.

@annamchoi i just love these two! We need to come up with a couples name for them! :wub:

@gracebkk

kkk The way Joon Young starts talking and Song Ah is like "Who are you?". Like THESE TWO!

:bashful:

 

@vangsweetie637 @gracebkk

I just rewatched the earlier episodes and in the restaurant Cha Young In mentions that because Joon Young travelled so much for his competitions and concerts he was unable to finish his last semester which is why he will do so while on his sabbatical. :D And Song Ah is starting graduate school.

 

It's really like we're watching a college drama now. :lol: And I'm here for it.

 

Thank you so much for sharing the new stills and video clips, @gracebkk and @rukizie!

:issohappy:

My heart is full fo Song Ah and Joon Young right now! Happy Do You Like Brahms? Day! :D

Do you mean SA is now in graduate school already? If so, I don't think that's the case because in ep 6 the manager was thanking SA & the other intern girl for spending their last summer interning in the foundation. And Park Sung Jae (the guy in the foundation) also asked SA and the other intern if it was their last semester, and they confirmed it.

 

But yes, it's definitely JY's last semester because he couldn't finish it due to his competitions and concerts.

Right?!?!! My heart is fluttering because of these two!!! Seriously.. Gahhhhh >.< How am I supposed to wait?? 6 more hours until airing time... (+12 hours for subs)

 

@rukizie Gosh.. That girl... I hope she knows what she truly wants soon. But on the bright side, the attire that JY's wearing seems to be the same one he wears for the ice-cream date! I wonder if the date takes place before or after this argument (my guess is after)? So.. I guess it's something to look forward to, at least for the date. :)
