[Drama 2020] Do You Like Brahms?, 브람스를 좋아하세요?


Recommended Posts

WOW just finished watching both episodes. Episode 1 was good, it introduced the characters properly but I loved EPISODE 2 more and the scene that stands out the most if the "I love you" scene to the violin, I WAS SCREAMING HAAHAHAHA I WASN'T READY (seriously I was screaming and I think the whole house heard me). 

The way they use music to set the tone is just good and it really compliments the screen and affects the mood and emotions being portrayed as if the viewer can hear the emotions they want to portray. CANT WAIT FOR NEXT WEEK'S EPISODE.

P.S. AS MUCH AS I LOVE THE LEADS (i really do), I REALLY SHIP SONG-AH AND THE CEO FRIEND, GOSH THEY'RE STORY IS JUST KQJFWBIEQWBIF (PURE KDRAMA MADNESS) AND I WANT MORE OF IT, IM SO READY FOR IT (NQEOIFNOWIEN)

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

I'm honestly not a fan of the love triangles/unrequited love trope. I hope the writer will allow the two of them to grow quickly toward each other and have a strong friendship that can weather what will inevitably come at them. I'm sure we will have Jung Kyung being jealous and trying to interfere and I assume Joon Young will be hit with fallout from his friend when he finds out the woman he loves is in love with Joon Young.

 

What I love is their awkward interactions. They obviously want to be friends and are intrigued with each other but they just don't know quite how to interact yet. It's so adorable. 

 

The first two episodes were solid and gave me A Piece of Your Mind vibes. I just hope the ratings stay good so we don't have a show that's cut short.

 

It does crack me up that they have Min Jae's character as 29. That baby face doesn't look a day over 25!

I really enjoy the first episode of do you like brahms, i watch it for Park Eun Bin and Kim Seong Cheol, but the Chemistry between Eun Bin and Kim Min Jae are strong.

Gonna admit i am little disappointed that there is no loveline between Eun Bin, Min Jae and Seong Cheol, but i think i just diggin my own grave if it really happen. 

i heard that there is no loveline between the leads based on the relationship chart but when i watch first episode i thought, no way there is no loveline between the leads when their encounter and their lines hinted a possible loveline. 

i am gonna watch the second episode today, wish me luck

SBS’s Monday-Tuesday drama “Do You Like Brahms?” has shared new stills of the upcoming episode!

“Do You Like Brahms?” is a romance drama about talented classical music students chasing love, happiness, and their dreams. Kim Min Jae stars as world-renowned pianist Park Joon Young, while Park Eun Bin plays Chae Song Ah, a violinist who sets out to pursue her love of music later in life than her peers. Kim Sung Cheol and Park Ji Hyun portray Park Joon Young’s close friends Han Hyun Ho and Lee Jung Kyung, respectively.

Spoiler

In the first episode, Chae Song Ah spontaneously asked Park Joon Young if he likes Brahms. Park Joon Young answered he doesn’t like Brahms and described the composer’s love as “unfulfilled,” referring to his love triangle with Robert and Clara Schumann.

The new stills show Park Joon Young playing Robert Schumann’s “Traumerei” in front of Chae Song Ah, Han Hyun Ho, and Lee Jung Kyung. Chae Song Ah watches him with a mixture of fascination and sadness, whereas Lee Jung Kyung stares at him with a cold and aloof expression. Meanwhile, Han Hyun Ho is leaning forward with intrigued eyes. Viewers are curious about what this song means to Park Joon Young and who he is playing this piece for.

Previously, Park Joon Young and Chae Song Ah left unforgettable first impressions on each other. Chae Song Ah, who doesn’t have a knack for violin despite wanting to pursue it, cried after seeing Park Joon Young’s piano performance.

In the upcoming episode, Chae Song Ah will act as a page turner for Park Joon Young. As someone who turns the sheet music for a musician, a page turner’s teamwork with the musician is very important, drawing curiosity about the chemistry Chae Song Ah and Park Joon Young will showcase.

Oh wow. What a lovely drama. For me it was just one of many upcoming dramas. I didn't expect it to be so beautifully crafted.

I love the whole atmosphere, the usage of music. It is always a great sign when you have characters perform music in a drama and they don't drown it with a ost. The violin piece Tzigane in episode 2 worked wonderfully to capture the tension with its haunting motive. 

And i love how the acting and writing for those scenes is quite restrained. You have those moments where the little girl asks her whether she is good at playing the violin. Or all those little moments between the leads. And they really feel like little moments. There is no 10 second slowmotion when they meet eyes. And i liked those moments where it is the music that connects them. Which is probably and hopefully a theme that continues. She as a relatively mediocre violinist who just loves to play and him who only plays for competitions and wants to find his love for music again.

I thought her character is quite interesting. We are very used to the struggling female lead in kdramas. Usually kdramas love to indulge in the misery until things finally start to turn around (when the guy shows up). But i thought it is interesting how she is just mediocre or good (she is a student at Sungkyunkwan after all). But there isn't really a clear perspective. Not just for her but for a lot of her fellow students. Only very few can make it into a professional orchestra. She even already has a degree vom Sungkyunkwan. Still relatable struggles without putting her in this harsh place where everyone stomps on her. Which was a little bit of a worry when they introduced her with her timid personality. And her name.. :D  But the colleagues at the foundation seem pretty nice. And it's not like she doesn't get any opportunities because she doesn't speak up or something like that.

For the male lead. I guess he had to be a genius artist. A kdrama where the guy has to struggle with mediocricy is hard to imagine. But i liked that they kept things relatively restrained. He is not the talent of the century. And he is not the jerk prodigy. I actually really liked the subtleness of his gestures when he helped her with her white lies etc.

Otherwise there isn't that much to be said about him at this point. Family problems with his irresponisble (or even abusive?) father. Then his struggles to keep performing and loneliness.

And the love triangle. 

Which is one of the biggest worries for the drama. The drama could really lose its tracks with all those potentially messy relationships. But from i've seen so far i am optimistic.

For the 2nd FL i just hope to see a well written character for once. There have been so many dramas recently where this kind of character ends up being flat. Her as the "failed" child prodigy might be an interesting approach. And i liked that little moment where she helped the talented younger violinist. Please don't just break down everything about her to her moms death.

Song Ah and JYP's awkwardness is uber cute.

Song Ah's name suit her, she's so meek LoL. I like that JYP is tryin' to get close to her. But I have a feeling the violin maker likes her..? What's the deal with Jung Kyung?!? If you don't like the guy just set boundaries. Why act like a jealous gf LoL? 

 

I guess guys dig that whole ice princess shtick but she's so..boring LoL. And ugh Song Ah's colleague, Hae Na (more like hyena!) should have her lips glued shut ugh!

I’m glad that lady who was at the violin recital gave advice to Joon Yong. I think it was needed since he probably felt a little discouraged after hearing what that intern said about his playing. People need to realize that in this vast world there will always be somebody who is better at something than they are. So what will they do after they encounter somebody who does it better? Quit? 
 

Hyeon Ho seems deeply in love with Jung Kyung. I was getting annoyed with him in the beginning scene where he sat with Joon Yong in the park. I wondered why everything he said relates back to Jung Kyung. However, after their backstory later in the episode, I realized he’s very much in love with his girlfriend. I just hope Joon Young will eventually get over her. I don’t like the way she does things. It’s like she wants to engage and keep Joon Young’s attention as well.

 

I’m looking forward to Joon Young and Song Ah becoming friends. Joon Young seems very lonely. Song Ah seems very shy. Maybe getting to know each other will them to grow as individuals and musicians. I don’t know what’s up with troublesome parents abounding in Korean drama but I hope Joon Young doesn’t have to keep getting saddled with his parents foolish financial decisions. It sounds like his father is an irresponsible person.

Last night watched ep 2 and totally in on this drama.

 

As others have said, I am loving our OTP. @Fabbo Mentioned alot of points I agree on the FL and some moments in the drama.

 

I liked how Seong Ah requested the song and Joon Young was able to play it even if just once. He was sweet to take the coffee (switch with SA) that was half spilt. I liked how he went to SA asking her to help and helping her feel calm to be a page turner.

 

I liked that after that Awkward moment at the music store when her classmate made that rude comment on Joon Young, he was still nice and not rude to her (then again she did not make those rude comments but still).

 

Not liking Jung Kyung stringing along Joon Young. She knows he likes her and she is toying with him. Glad Joon Young told her to not do it and that it is NOT funny. Your insecurities and unhappiness should not be put on Joon Young (who already has alot on his plate). Supporting his family and now in a kind of reset/slump (perhaps) and dealing with the solitude of competing and touring. I liked how Seong Ah echoed what was said to Joon Young  about not worrying about the judgements and what others think. Reach for to get 1-2 people giving you a 10's rather then everyone giving you medicre 6-7's. So when Seong Ah told him she was moved by his performance of Schumann's pieces was lovely. 

 

@nat_phoenix88  I too googled a bit of this love triangle as well.

 

@Niel2804 The relationship chart did not say (love lines) but just how they are interconnected. I found that interesting. Still Kim Min Jae and Park Eun Bi are so visually stunning together. I cannot get over she is 29 and he is 23. Their shy awkwardness works and loving how they are aware of each other. @Latte_Anyday Totally agree!

 

@loopo I do heart Seong Ah's crush with CEO /Sunbae Dong Yoon. Yes I LOVED the clip when he tells her to say I love you three times to your violin. He is sweet and he does care for her. I wonder if he reciprocates her feelings but just did not do anything.I mean who OFFERS to tutor teach just like that? I know you can be a sweet and nice guy but STILL a chunk of time of your life. When she asked him to fix her violin he asked to have her go to the airport to pick him up!? Me thinks he liked her enough to ask her to SEE her lovely friendly face first thing after landing! I mean he was going to eat with her and did not REACH out to anyone . Plus her going to the gathering late and her bff Min Sung wondering why she could not contact her. (Must be hard to harbor feelings for someone your BFF loves/likes and you do too). He is handsome, gentle and has a nice vibe.

 

I am excited about next episode that Joon Young says to Seon Ah to be "friends" is awesome. I liked she went back and sat and talked with him . They are just adorbs and I like the possibility of them being together. 

 

Jung Kyung is jealous and doesn't want ANYONE near him or if she won't have him, she has the vibe she doesn't want anyone with him. JK did not like it when Hyun Ho mentioned SA and JY looked cute together as he was performing and she was page turning for him.

 

SA is sensitive on the uptake between this trios vibe at that awkward first meeting (official) at the Foundation (not the airport).

I like this drama. I just watched the first two episodes. I think Seong Ah and Joon Young are very much suited with each other and I am glad that they are starting the relationship as friends.

I love to hear pieces of classical music as well.  I will look forward to the next episodes.

So I watched the first episode and I have to say I liked it a lot but oh dear if it didn't give me anxiety for like 80% of the episode. :lol:

 

I don't know the episode was flowing very nicely. Everything felt soft and warm but our two leads struggle a lot in their own way.

 

Park Joon Yong who seemingly has it all, except happiness and apparently lost his certain something while playing.

 

Meanwhile Chae Song Ah (how unfortunate that her name sounds similar to the Korean expression for "sorry") is basically hit left and right for being not good enough. First by the conductor and then by the other intern who likes to dig at her for not being "born to play violin". And OH GOSH, if I didn't feel for her when she was basically interrogated by her mother and sister about why she doesn't stop music and start something serious. And why waste 4 years on something she isn't successful with. Like: YIKES!

 

I liked the whole conversation between Song Ah and the little kid who asked her if she is good at playing violin and she answered that she likes it very much. Which of course isn't the same as saying "I'm good at it."

 

I'm looking forward to see the characters grow in their own way and hopefully find their own way to love the music and be successful without the pressure from other people.

 

But on a lighter and almost funny note... so what does this drama have now though: a love quintet?

@Jillia, nice catch with that quintet gif. The pain of unrequited love and misunderstandings. Well, I think Joon Young and Song Ah give off the same kind of melancholy and quietness. I would really like to see them come alive and hopefully that will be through music, friendship and if it’s their mutual wish, love.

Yes, they seem different but actually are very much the same and struggle with same and different problems. So I'm looking forward to them becoming friends and connecting over the music. And yes, we will see love on the horizon.

You know this drama 

 

Had both beauty in 

 

Park eun bin and Park ji hyun 

 

It is a treat to watch. 

 

Now let see the characters 

 

I think Jun young had fair confuse in feeling for jun kyung because of the accident jun kyung mother got that in return give the pianist place to jun young and he can rise to stardom. But in return for the stardom he lost everything. His happiness his sleep his friend. What left is just.... the stardom which is now in threaten because he only place 2nd place while other pianist got 1st so now he is in position where everything is going wrong for him with no stable family,losing stardom,and ofcourse losing his crush to his friend and need to take it up on his own with noone to share his burden feeling and anxious. 

 

But now he got a breath of fresh air which is chae song ah. 

 

She is also not one who got no trouble.

 

She got a lot aswell.

She got a crush with her best friend ex which is also her best friend aswell. She is not that amazing with violin which in turn people look down on her. She also got a lot of critics from family and friends for pursuing violin. She also took it up on her own. She cant really share the burden with anyone either. 

 

But now two hurt person meet together and now this can be a healing drama where both lead heal each other wound. 

 

I think the most anticipated to do the most damage is ofcourse junkyung. As we can see she aint happy when junyoung is with song ah. 

 

She is in position where she want to hold both men for herself? Thats not good tho and really unhealthy

Great seeing friends in this forum here! Love it!

 

@Samuel Yohanes So agree the stunning visuals in this drama. Sigh.

 

@Jillia Love your gif---wow so good and yeah so meaningful.

 

It is a SMALL world that both our OTP meetup at Incheon not knowingly. How their paths connect again unknowingly. Joon Young unknowingly like a moth to a flame flickering interest and awareness of Seong Ah (her poor name sounding like an apology--what a pain indeed). Loved how he knocked the music sheet so the conductor could stop digging at her, his wanting to give an umbrella (though he did not know her well), his doing a white lie about performing to her BFF when she did not perform). Their awkward meeting up at Incheon waiting for their friends. His cute sweet gesture to drink from the coffee (that was half spilt). Or how he noticed her looking uncomfortable and cramped standing outside the bar (instead of going straight in). Their cute moment when they both realized they were waiting for the other to hail a cab and leave. LOL. I loved how she ended up helping turn the pages of at the performance and how he looked so handsome walking up to her to ask for that favor. Or that touch of their hands while turning pages (pangs of awareness of the other). 

 

@celebrianna I agree our OTP give the similar vibe so excited to see their journey to get to know each other , become friends (next week) and maybe more.

 

In my Korean language group, we discussed how "friends" in Korea is so strict only if you are "same age". Friends how we see it in the West can be any age with that age limit/restriction. But in the script they are same age so can be "friends" so they will be on their own after Seong Ah's boss pushed for them to be friends at that party at the bar. Def awkward for both but then did not hurt to see them both look---oh we are same age? Hehehe.

 

@loopo I agree I already watched that scene many times too. Just so sweet how he said "I love you" and Seong Ah was startled until he finished his thought. Still Seong Ah looked sweet and lovingly at her violin and wistfully at CEO Dong Yoon Sunbae too. Sigh.

 

Excited for next week and love the classical music played in this drama. Love how the actors worked hard to be realistic. I must admit I was impressed by Park Eun Bi's violin playing and when I read she played it you can tell. I played briefly the violin and seeing her fingering on the instrument matching with the strokes by the bow---I was even more enamored with her dedication to the role.  I still cannot believe she is 28/29. Min Jae is so handsome and love his voice. He brings a great sadness you feel. I hope this rest he is refreshed and gets excited about music.

 

The fact Seong Ah mentioned he should think about what HE liked about it. I liked she was truthful saying while good her heart moved with his private performance of Traumerei.

I watched episode 2 as well and I enjoyed it even more. I think what I like the most is that it doesn't start off as love at first sight. :D Granted many dramas don't start of that way but it feels much more here.

 

You can see these two people slowly connecting I like how awkward or should I say they're shy with eachother. I mean Song Ah seems to be a shy and rather insecure person but Joon Yong is also unexpectedly shy as well (even though just because someone is confident on stage doesn't mean they're off-stage as well). But both are not always saying what they're thinking or feeling. And I like that Song Ah tells Joon Yong that when she asked him how he liked the music and he was somehow distracting from it by saying he likes it when the other people liked it. Song Ah isn't much different, she doesn't say either how she feels sometimes. But at the same time she told him that she liked it a lot more when he played "Träumerei".

 

I can see it happening that they will become friends (as suggested in the preview) and they will become eachother's encouragement to make music (Joon Young has yet to hear Song Ah play the violin). And it was lovely to have the little montage with them just sitting in the restaurant talking carefree. And yes, @Nodame, I love the sweet little moments happening between them. :wub:

I'm looking forward to them becoming friends and then slowly and unbeknownst to them falling in love with eachother. But first they will need to erase those ghosts from their past with whom they're struggling with. And also to see them find their love for the music again and their own tune while playing the violin and piano.

 

Oh it's going to be a lovely journey for all of us to see it happening. :D

Watching this and liking Kim Min-jae's portrayal of Joon-young so far. Park Eun-bin is also pretty decent as Song-ah, and their interactions are nice. Have a few gripes about the music and scene transitions, but still watchable so far.
