PRESS STATEMENT FROM ABS-CBN:
"Two of the hottest Korean stars from the hit idol drama He’s Beautiful, Jum Yong Hwa and Park Shin Hye, team up for the first time as two very different musicians playing good music together to the tune of love in Heartstrings that started airing today, January 2, 2012 on ABS-CBN.
"Ever since the two were seen in the TV series He’s Beautiful, fans of Yong Hwa and Shin Hye have been requesting for a TV project that will reunite them since Shin Hye was originally partnered with Jan Geun Suk in the said series. The producers granted their wish via Heartstrings.
"As the granddaughter of a known traditional musician, Nicole wants to make her grandfather proud and realize his dream for her of becoming a traditional music prodigy. Thus, she majored in traditional Korean instruments in a university where she will come across Kevin, a campus heartthrob and a rock star in his own right as the vocalist of the famous band The Stupid.
"The two will meet at the band’s concert and the extremely opposite music majors will start of at the wrong foot. Their mutual hate to each other will lead to a showdown of their musical talents where Nicole plays classical and Kevin plays modern rock.
"Who will win the musical battle? As Kevin strums the guitar and Nicole plays the gangeum, can they play good harmony together? What if they used their hearts instead of their instruments?
"Dont miss the chart-topping Korean series filled music and romance, Heartstrings, Mondays to Fridays, 2:30 PM after Happy Yipee Yehey in ABS-CBN’s afternoon block Kapamilya Gold."
