Finally! An answer for those fanatic of You’re Beautiful’s GU MI NAM – KANG SHIN WOO tandem, here it is! Since I love light dramas, it only takes me a week to finish this. I’m just days left behind its airing in Korea so you just don’t know how happy I am when MYSOJU.COM and DRAMACRAZY.NET released episode 14 and 15 simultaneously! Though this drama was cut-down for only 15 episodes because of Park Shin Hye’s involvement in a car accident, still Heartstrings ended the story in an awesome finale. I just love how it ended in a right way with the perfect couples having their perfect love story. Truly a string of hearts! ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ HEARTSTRINGS!☺

Another Jang Geun Suk! (Actually, after You’re Beautiful, I promise myself to watch all JGS’ drama series and movies! Just couldn’t get enough of him hehehe) Also known as Marry Me Mary, this drama series features the “Geun” couple hehehe Moon Geun Young as Mae Ri and Jang Geun Suk as Mu Gyul. Mae Ri, daughter of a man who always on a run with debt collectors, register his daughter in a marriage certificate with his rich childhood friend’s son Jung In (Kim Jae Wook) as a way to pay off his debts.
