Character description:
1) Lee Shin (age 21) is a university student majoring in modern music. He is the vocalist of band “The Stupid” and also plays the guitar. He is known for his good looks and for his strong passion for music. However, he is a cold person and is uninterested in things non-music related. He has no dreams nor plans for the future. But it is all going to change as he meets Lee Kyu-Won (starring Park Shin Hye).
2) Lee Kyu Won (age 21) is a bright and outgoing student who was born into a prestigious family, and is majoring in traditional Korean instruments, especially the gayageum. She is a very outgoing.
Kyu Won’s grandfather, Lee Dong-gun is one of the top 3 traditional music singers of his age. And his biggest wish is to have his grand-daughter trained to become a traditional music child-prodigy in 10 years’ time. Trying to live up to her grandfather’s expectations, Kyu-Won immenses herself in traditional music training and becomes a university student who knows nothing about anything besides traditional music.
As Kyu Won’s friends are fans of “The Stupid“, she was forced to go to the band’s concert with them and there she saw Lee Shin, performing life. She is immediately captivated by him.
The drama will be taking place at an arts college which focuses on dancing, singing, acting, and literature, and is classified as a ‘mellow campus drama’, detailing the lives of college students.
