    wow. i’ve watched all the way up to episode 6 and here I am, procrastinating on my homework to find every single information i can find about this drama. i LOVE the drama so far, and i love how it gets so much more defined and interesting by the episode. i might be a little different cuz i’m into music and stuff, but even to just any other person, this drama is something new. yess, there is a love triangle involved, but that’s not everything (i actually find the love triangle a super-bonus to the drama) if ur not a fan of the whole love thing.

    thanks a lot for the OST by the way!

  61. 61 : Daisy Says:

    Just finished seeing the last episode (18). I’m sad that this series ended, although the ending may not satisfy many because there doesn’t seem to be conclusion to the main characters’ love relationship.

    Kim Myung Min is a great actor and was recently given an award for his work on this drama. The rest of the cast is also good.

  62. 62 : jtt Says:

    so sad.ending alreadi.m i right to assume that kangmai ask durumi to wait for him,till he is ready ah.gave her ring for remebrance.my version .hehe

  68. 68 : José Says:

    I’m from Brazil and i saw this marvellous series!

    Congratulations to the all crew, specially the actors and actress!

    Greetings from Brazil to Korea, this beautiful country!

  69. 69 : Ray Says:

    This is a fantastic show, though i haven’t finish it.
    I love Lee Ji Ah passion in this show, and the trumpeter talent.
    And all the quarrelling and bickering is so funny.
    Makes me laugh all the time =D

  70. 70 : guilbojr Says:

    i love this drama!!!

  71. 71 : choi hee Says:

    i can just see a lot of positive comments here about this drama & i just bought the dvd but haven’t got a chance to watch it, however someone i know told me she wasn’t impressed with the storyline as it didn’t have a lot of romance in it and i don’t know exactly what she’s talking about & seeing how many of you liked it here, i’m convinced this is a good drama! i can’t wait to watch it!

  72. 72 : Daisy Says:

    The music, the acting, specially Kim Myung Min’s, beautiful Lee Ji Ah and Jang Geuk Suk and the orchestra members personal stories make this a good drama to watch.

    I wanted to see a few more episodes where there would be a resolution to the love triangle, so I felt very sad when this series ended and kept hoping for more. I miss it.

  73. 73 : Lumi Says:

    Saludos desde Mexico a los fans de dramas coreanos.

    Gracias a los sitios como mysoju tengo la fortuna de ver buenas series de todos los generos como Beethoven Virus, que lo dejan a uno queriendo ver mas y con bellos sentimientos al final de ellas.

  74. 74 : Maggy Says:

    This answer is to Eti, Du ru mi choose Maestro Kang, because she accepted his Beethoven ring, but he told her that it´s not the time, yet.

  75. 75 : jtt Says:

    saw in her fan web page,she is nominated as best couple with kim m m.Hope they win .good luck.

  76. 76 : tuswit Says:

    i just started watching this drama & i’m enjoying it! KMM, Jang & Li Ah are all great actors! i’ve seen jang in Lovers in Prague & Baby & Me and I’ve been one of his huge fans since but this is my first time seeing KMM & Li and they’re very impressive as well! KMM deserves to win the best actor award & hope Jang & Li also win something! this is a good drama & hats off to the producers/directors/casts they’re all great – the music, etc it’s a must see.

  77. 77 : B-to-vn vyrz-olic Says:

    kang mae is awesome…

    kim myung min is awesome…

  78. 78 : Andrea Says:

    I don’t satisfy with the ending of this story
    It’s not happy ending enough

    It supposed to show some years later how they live have changed and reached their own dreams:
    1. Show that Kang Gun Woo abaout some years later has become a great conductor
    2. Show Du Ru Mi about some years later have been married with Kang Gun Woo and becoma a great composer that always work with Kang Gun Woo
    3. Show Maestro Kang some years later has changed become a great personality

  79. 79 : Andrea Says:

    It is a great movie to watch
    because it performed so many music aspect
    by the way the flautist (Yi deun) personality, I think a little weird?

  80. 80 : Nicole Says:

    I don’t like how there is little time between ru mi and kang mae. I mean… you know… there are very few happy romance parts.

    Besides isn’t he getting a bit old???

    awww does ru mi really go deaf??

    hehe I like the cool kang mae. I want him to be a great conductor 4ever.

  81. 81 : chesa Says:

    A perfectionist maestro plus a bunch of musical amateurs equals one exciting musical drama. Great acting, awesome plot and a lot of cliffhangers; Beethoven Virus is one infectious Korean series. Kim Myung Min’s performance leaves you breathless- convincing and very impressive.

  82. 82 : fee_yui Says:

    am watching it now..but not finish it yet,,
    but du ru mi with maestro kang??
    not with geunsuk??
    aaahhh,,hate it!
    why my oppa cant get his love,,poor him..
    come to me babe,,i’ll accept ur love,,LMAO

  83. 83 : koreandramaAdiktus Says:

    I LOVE THIS FILM!!! One of the best korean drama I have ever watched. :) Reasons?

    1.) Good story. It is not just pure romance but it also touches the lives of some of the actors. Their personal struggles and their victories that they had. The story is not centered on the main actors alone but the supporting actors as well that gives a good balance to the story. One who waches it would reflect and realize that it there is every bit of Kang Gun Woo (the conductor and the trumpheter), Du Ri Mi, Ha Ye Deun, Jung Hee Yun, and so on and so forth within us.

    It pulls your heartstrings!!! Dang!!! Episodes 10 and 17 made me cry.

    2.) Very good acting. Kang Myung Min and Jang Geun Suk gave an excellent performance. You cannot help but be impressed by these two the way they tackled their roles. Myung Min for playing the role of a conductor who has fame but lonely. But despite his gruff and egotistical attitude, there is something in him that reaches out to those he values and those who accepts him. I guess it is his defense against personal attachments. He perservered to be where he is and be succesful. But as the story progress you could see the good side in him and how he loves his craft. Music is his life. It is the only one thing that got him going through all the highs and lows in his life.

    Jeun Suk on the other hand, i love this guy, has settled with the idea that he would be a policeman. A career that he dos not really love. But when music enters into his life… wow!!! you could see his infectious reaction to it. His face lits up every time he stands in front of and orchestra and conducts his way to a great music. You cannot help but smile with him as you watch him.

    I love the last scene on episode 17 when Jeun Suk was crying to Myung Min when he taught he failed the master. Dang!!! You cant help but feel the gripping emotions that Jeun Suk and Myung Min had during that scene. As a father to a child. A child who thought that he had failed and had disappointed his father. But then he is a proud father who have seen the accomplishments of his child. A father who wants to comfort his hurting child and knowing that he cannot do anything about it because its one part of life that one has to face.

    Continuation would be tomorrow!!!

  84. 84 : koreandramaAdiktus Says:

    Continuation…

    Lee Ji Ah. I first saw her in the Legend of the 4 gods ( I forgot the exact title) with Bae Yung Jun on the lead role. I read somewhere that that was her first acting stint. And I would say that I admire her for that. She was good considering a she was a newbee in the industry. In this drama, she’s good, but not that really impressed as I was. There were similarities on the way she tackled her role in Legend…and Beethoven. But she played good violin though.

    Song Ong Sook. I love her on this drama. And I must say she is a good cellist. You could feel her triumph and happiness during her solo performance. It makes you want to reach out to her and let her feel that she is a gifted artist. That she is worth something.

    And I could say that the rest of the actors on this drama delivered their role pretty well.

    3.) Great music!!! I love the music!!! Actually it made me appreciate classical music more. I love the orchestra. They’re good!!! You could feel the high they get every after performance. The ballad that their perform was really nice too, though I don’t understand the lyrics of the song but the melody was really really good.

    Lastly, I could say that this drama is not just any drama that you would forget after watching it. It’s not just some cheesy drama that makes you smile but leaves an impression on it’s viewers. There are lessons to be learned here. The importance of valuing one’s self, respecting each other, failures are but stepping stones that helps you achieve your goals and dreams and it never is too late to dream and be what you really want to be, humility does not lessen the value of one’s pride, forgiveness, and lastly no person could live alone and be happy. Everybody needs someone to share ones triumph and failures.

    So to all the actors, crews, staffs and producers of Beethoven Virus, congratulations!!! Hope that we could see more of this kind of film that touches the hearts of the viewers and leaves an imprint of how life should be viewed upon.

    Good speed!!!

  85. 85 : iloveyisan Says:

    Sounds interesting. :))

  86. 86 : honey b Says:

    Love classic music, appriciate more to orchestra because of this drama. So beautiful, touching, funny.
    Kim Myung Min is the soul of Beetthoven Virus.
    He’s relly..really suitable for Kang Mae Character.
    The way he talked, the way he stared, the way he walked,
    so perfect…

  87. 87 : flowergirl Says:

    I MUST ADMIT THIS IS THE BEST DRAMA IN 2008…
    THE STORY LINE, AND CHARACTER JUST PERFECT..
    THIS DRAMA IS UNLIKE OTHER KOREAN DRAMA WHICH REVOLVE ABOUT CLASSIC MUSIC..LOVE LEE JI AH SO MUCH ALTHOUGH I HAVENT SEE HER YET IN THE LEGEND..HER BEAUTY SO NATURAL….

  88. 88 : kangmae22 Says:

    I LOVE Kangmae!!!!!!!!!!!! XD
    Kim Myung Min is what made this drama alive and addicting!
    His superior acting skills, breathtaking charisma, fashion, language….
    Kyahhhh!!! 😛
    I was all for the Kangmae and Rumi couple….They were sooooooo cute together!
    Therefore, I was absolutely disappointed at the ending….
    I hate that little garlic thing now….Totally ruined the moment…
    I miss Kangmae soooooo much…..There HAS to be a Season 2!!!!!

  89. 89 : Angelsfaith Says:

    This is so very addictive drama… I’m really hooked!
    Kim Myung Min is the Best! Very superb actor! Perfect for the role.
    He makes the role Kang Mae so effective. Especially the tone of his voice.
    Kang Mae Syndrome is all over. and the “DD” part was very famous.
    I can say that I’m infected with the virus… Beethoven Virus. haha :)

    KMM fighting! I hope you win at Baeksang Awards!

  90. 90 : Sunny Says:

    Two thumbs up! This and Painter of the Wind are my favorite 2008 dramas. The music is beautiful. I was left breathless by the performance of Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony and the cello solo played by the ajumma (can’t remember her name). Kim Myung Min is an awesome actor, the rest of the cast is first rate.

  100. 100 : radishchan Says:

    i
    really
    LOVE
    this
    drama

    i didn’t SLEEP
    for TWO days
    for me to finish this!

    I’m a fan of classic music,
    the first reason i watched this..

    the story was really impressive,
    the reason i was so hooked in this!

    people behind the scene really did a lot of effort!!
    as seen in every excellent episodes..

    and most of all–

    they have a wonderful cast!!!

    i’m a fan of LEE JI AH
    since i saw her in “The Story of the First King’s Four Gods”

    with KIM MYUNG MIN superb acting here
    i instantly fall for him (*had a crush*)
    — if only he is six years younger
    so that we will only have a 10 years age gap.. hahaha
    and if he only dont have a wife and a kid.. hahahaha
    by the way, i even had interest in watching his other dramas as well.

    and as for JANG GEUN SUK
    he is totally awesome!!
    he seems to improve more and more in his every project!!

    all the minor characters did well too..
    considering their efforts to play instruments they never touched before..
    they actually made the series more lively!!

    a 9.8 out of 10 rating from me!!

    hope to see more fantastic dramas!!
    keep up the good work!!

    IMG!!!i’m got infected too…i’ve spend my last weekend to finish this series. It seems that I can’t stop from watching it from episode to episode. It likes drugs that makes me addicted.

    Everyone have given their best for this series. The music, the acting, the casts…all perfect. Hope there’s sequel for it because i’m already fall in love with classical music.

    GREAT STORY & IT WORTH MY TIME WATCHING IT!!!
    GOOD JOB!!!

  102. 102 : Kerii Says:

    Love love love this drama!! Have seen my share of Kdramas/Jdramas….and this has to be my all time favorite (after Buhwal)…all I can say is Kim Myung Min!!!! He made me fall in love with this drama..this is the first thing I’ve seen him in, and man…he’s amazing! I fell in love with Mae Kang LOL his voice is super sexy 😀 I was a little dissapointed with the ending, but this ending was better than a depressing ending…we could always hope for…maybe not another season, but a 2 hour sequal thing…ahh tytyty for this wonderful story!!

  103. 103 : DudLup Says:

    This is the best Korean drama I have ever watched! Kim Myung Min is the best actor!

  104. 104 : Alexia Says:

    I have just finished watching this drama. All I can say that this drama was the best drama that I’ve enjoyed after Jumong. I couldn’t sleep for couple of nights due to Kang Mae Syndrome. His acting was absolutely, undeniably astounding and superb. Kim Myung Min himself surely deserved the Baeksang Awards. His manly, masculine, sexy voice, his hand gesture, his virulent tongue, his stern eyes, the way he walked, the way he crossed his leg when he was sitting down, ect…made one easily falls in love with him. I don’t blame Du Ru Mi falls for him, and not for the other young inexperienced Kang Gun Woo. The story line was wonderful and held a deep meaning in life. No matter how many times one had failed, one needs to keep optimistically trying until one succeeds. Good friendships, granddaughter-grandfather love between a young girl toward an old person whom she respects as her grandfather, understanding between husband & wife, commitment to the love of music, …All of these emotions made the drama worthed watching. Futhermore, the music itself was definitely awful. I enjoyed every bit of it. It surely brought me back to the college years when I was majored in classical music. I do hope for another Beethoven Virus II coming soon…when Kang Mae and Du Ru Mi really fall for each other, such as when he said goodbye to her “Now is not the time yet!”, would that mean that time will come in the future when they meet again?

  105. 105 : zaen Says:

    Absolutely awesome acting on Kim Myung Min. Surprise to see an unprofessional musician acted like real in drama. Thanks for the madness playing of Chopin’s Etude in A minor!!

  106. 106 : Korean DVDs Says:

    Anyone looking to purchase this DVD set with excellent English subtitles, just click on my nick – “Korean DVDs”. 😉

    Thanks!

  107. 107 : Kang Mae's urgent fan Says:

    any one knows whether there will be a Beethoven Virus part 2??? went into their main websites, all Korean words, i can’t find any link to ask!
    recently korean drama always ended with a “open question” (aka: “don’t know pretty girl and handsome boy will be happily ever after” kind of ending)!!!
    Endings always in high potential for a sequel, but sequels forever never follows!?????
    why why why can’t producer just squeeze in something like; Kang and Mi walk into the sunset hand in hand or embraced in tears of joy…. very old fashion ending, but still better than “don’t know what to expect”, right???
    I WANT BEETHOVEN VIRUS PART TWO, (the more virus the better! i m so infected now already.)

  108. 108 : Emma Says:

    I don’t like Du Ru Mi. In the beginning, she seems to have a really strong personality, but all she’s done since episode 7 was cry, bow her head, and act timid. I hate it. The innocent act really pissed me off. I don’t know if it’s the character or the actress, but Du Ru Mi really failed in my eyes. I was not impress with her, and I don’t sympathize with her plight.

  109. 109 : jaja Says:

    I love classical music after watching this drama. It is similar with nodame cantabile with less sillyness. They picked a really awesome classic to be played in the drama. It really contribute to my passion that we can achive our dream eventhough there are so many obstacles in our way. I love the goose dream song in the last episode. The lyrics is superb and touching. Worth watching!

  110. 110 : Sony Says:

    This drama is so outstanding.I watched many Korean Drama & I like all of them, but this one’s different, realy different.
    really recommend everyone to watch it.

  117. 117 : josie.l Says:

    This drama is the best drama after Dae-Chang-gum. No deny: the music is great, the actors are professional, the feelings are so touching….. notice how Maestro Kang touched Ru-mi’s hand in the end? I loved that part!!! It makes me falls for classic……

  118. 118 : FeehuntMALAYSIA Says:

    Kim Myung Min is the best actor..

    haha..i agree with: Andrea Says:

    December 31st, 2008 at 12:20 pm
    I don’t satisfy with the ending of this story
    It’s not happy ending enough

    It supposed to show some years later how they live have changed and reached their own dreams:
    1. Show that Kang Gun Woo abaout some years later has become a great conductor
    2. Show Du Ru Mi about some years later have been married with Kang Gun Woo and becoma a great composer that always work with Kang Gun Woo
    3. Show Maestro Kang some years later has changed become a great personality

  120. 120 : jenna kami Says:

    I love korean drama, BeethVir is really good with the characters, but it’s too pitty that there is still not happy ending. I would have wishes more, but no :( that´s sad. I alwaays cry and hope the next part or season but no, it’s so dissapointing :( I’m in love with korean drama (BOYS OVER FLOWERS >33)

  121. 121 : yuslina Malaysia Says:

    I’m totally agreed with Alexia 104. I thought I’m the only one who think & do like that..Hahaha…we’re in the same ship & I believed many KMM’s fans were like that.
    Love him saying “Dong do Oo Re”-repeat the scene so many times & scenes between him & Ru Me. Love the scene at the library…so sweet of him..
    Everyday I must googled about KMM as I must read or know something new about him…I want to share it with my collegues but, they’re not interested.I wrote in to a local newspaper asking them to search & to publish about a very talented Korean actor & one of the best actor in the world..KMM. Not sure if they take me seriously or not

  122. 122 : feehuntMALAYSIA Says:

    beethoven virus season 2….emm..maybe??? haha..

  123. 123 : coconut Says:

    awwww love kmm 😀
    PLEAsE MAKE A SEQUELLLLLLL

  124. 124 : YingZi Says:

    actually, i feel that its not that bad an ending… at least, that’s how i wanted to remember Maestro Kang, who his “tao” face and his faithful “beethoven”. Du Ru Mi cant really be with anybody since she really lyk Maestro Kang and Maestro Kang lyk her back. and if she ended up with him, Trumpeter Kang would be too sad. so i think overall, its a pretty nice ending. sad for Yi Deun and Grandfather though…

  125. 125 : asian whisper Says:

    Incredible, long live classical music! I really love the drama so much, I am so impressed. I did not expect that it would change my view about classical music. I recommended it to friend of different culture background and am very happy that he likes it as much as I do. I hope this drama is viewed by everyone, life with music is great!

    It was almost the greatest Korean Drama I have watched, I have always have high credit to Korean drama and movie, ever since I learnt that “the Lake House” was just a western version of Korean Movie il-mare …

    Thanks to all the delicate hearts and souls that had made the drama possible.

  126. 126 : guchik Says:

    Just finished watching this drama.
    I really recommend this drama for an avid fan of kdrama. Worth ur time. Great storyline and acting.

    The b3st scene for me is when gun woo expressed all his frustration towards kang mae when he and his orchestra were not able to play at their last concert (was it swan’s dream??) and then kang mae comforted him and hugged him.

  127. 127 : ramces Says:

    i just love this drama,the music are hauntingly beautiful! highly recommended for those who are musically inclined! great performance by the lead actors…

  128. 128 : lisa Says:

    an nyong ha sae yo, lisa ragu hamida.
    i like this drama alot n the OST oso…but the song that really makes me cry is the singer singing in the Swan’s Dream while they all having the last concert…is really a nice n touching song, unfortunately don’t know where i can find it. Is really a great thing to me if someone knows how to get this song…chong mal gam sa teu ri gu yo.

  147. 147 : GerovitalFan Says:

    I found the young Kang Gun Woo very annoying: arrogant and impatient. He really annoyed me. But the series was great. And the one thing that made it great was the music. Even if you don’t like classical music, watch this series, it will make you love it. Simply magnificent and a breath of fresh air among the syrupy k-dramas.

  148. 148 : jan 10 Says:

    Hi !

    This K- series is very excellent.We have learned a lot of lessons from this series.All actors &actress are able to perform deeply and then to make our audience with the great pleasure.
    I like it very much and I advise all people in the world should watch this series when they are free .

  154. 154 : weekender Says:

    i’m interested in getting the song of “Dream of Swan”. the song is so inspiring and really represent the member of the orchestra. just saw the video on youtube but still can’t get the song (did the searching on google).

  155. 155 : Ata Says:

    I Really love this drama,,great story, beautiful musics, great actors and actress..
    it’s inspiring me to love classical musics…

  156. 156 : Casey Says:

    Spent my whole Sunday evening watching this great drama, just finished Ep 10. This drama makes u want to continue watching again & again… Love the cast, the music… to be honest, the classical orchestra did not only move the audience in the drama, but also the viewers in front of the TV (i.e. Us). I think i’m in love.

  157. 157 : pandora Says:

  167. 167 : blackitty Says:

    I really like the drama, im currently watching episode 10, but I must be hones i just want to kill du ru mi, i hate her with all my soul, for a moment i even thounght of stop watching it because of her but I love Jang Geun Suk too much to stop watching the drama, I mean he is just an amazing good looking actor, I fell in love with him again because of this drama, but i just don’t get how du ru mi can be such a horrible person, not that i don’t like the idea of her and the conductor together (well to be honest he deserves someone better than her), I really don’t mind them being together, what I cant stand is her actitude, if she liked the conductor why not just saying so instead of playing around with JGS feelings.

    @violet! JKS ‘s a 2 lead for this drama.He acted so well .I’m also love his short hair too ,he ‘s good looking .This drama it classic music .Anyway try to watch it when you have time !

  175. 175 : Andy (from Singapore) Says:

    I got to know this movie through SNSD Kim Tae Yeon singing the OST “Can you hear me”.

    Its was a great movie! Really hope there will be part 2 coming up.

  176. 176 : eri Says:

    I watched this drama because of Jang Geun Suk ,and I liked it. It worth your time.

  177. 177 : Lorem Says:

    So I’m watching and Yu Ri’s character is falling for the cold, narcissist, love-bereft conductor. I’m thinking.. what the…!! Click.

    A pity cos I really like cast.

  178. 178 : jacjac Says:

    as i continue watching, oddly i was beginning to like the nasty kang gun woo more than the goodie kang gun woo…he’s cool but yet there’s another beautiful side to the man and as the story goes, the better him begins to unfold…

    you’ll like him too like the rashful du ru mi…i guess we can relate to her in someway in our daily lives 😉

  179. 179 : mylz Says:

    Bethoven virus…hmmmm its really like a virus that will crash your emotion..the cast did justicefor thier role awesome story line..
    Kim Myung Min as Kang Gun Woo (Conductor)-represents the classics style of music..has this hard shell personality but deep inside his a cool man and have a real guy personality.. his really in control of his life. stubborn yet unyielding; beleive in your dream and strive to achieve it no matter what. perfectionist

    Jang Geun Suk as Kang Gun Woo (Trumpet)- represents the modern generation that have this faith of being adventorous and never afraid to try new things that he thinks challegeable. A very positive mind and willing to accept failure and learn from it. Willing to sacrifice in the name of love…for his girl and for his considered brother.

    the lessons to be learned here is that the importance of valuing one’s self, respecting each other, failures are but stepping stones that helps you achieve your goals and dreams and it never is too late to dream and be what you really want to be, humility does not lessen the value of one’s pride, forgiveness, and lastly no person could live alone and be happy. Everybody needs someone to share ones triumph and failures.

    I see lots of korean drama,but because my love to the classic music this one was one of the best that I saw!
    Really congratulate to all of the actor & actress & all the scene man! Specially to Maestero Kang, Mr. Kim Myung Min for the best acting that I saw of him! It was so exiting for me all the scens! I wish to all of the scene man Success! Fighting 😀

    I watched this drama bcoz of jgs also…hahah but what happen to me…. l’ve fallen for the bad Gun Woo… too..what should i do…=)

  190. 190 : tigerb Says:

    this is really, really beautiful drama series portraying the lives of the struggling musicians, what they have to go through to achieve their dreams with passion. true artists are like that. the ensemble of a cast was excellent, am sure there were real musicians included in the cast, but did the main characters play the instruments for real? if so, i applaud them. i could not find fault with the leading actor portrayal, he was superb. jgs did a very good job here than in ‘you’re beautiful’, not sure of his ‘conducting ability’. the story is well written and i enjoyed watching this although am not classical music lover. cheers!

  191. 191 : joda Says:

    I haven’t seen it yet but i wish that it will not deceive me like some jgs’s drama >_< ill be back to give my opinion after watching it.

  192. 192 : alrisa Says:

    i never seen this drama but since i watch lee ji ah at the legend and i like her as an actress and really admire her acting at the legend so i gonna watch this drama i think this is interesting. :)

  193. 193 : MayaF Says:

    I miss this drama.. Great cast! Good story… Jang Geun Suk Oppa saranghae…
