We’ve got a hot new Korean drama coming to DramaFever in June – but what to call it in English? We asked for your help and you gave us an incredible response! We didn’t expect such an outpouring of ideas from fans – and we have to say THANK YOU! To recap, the drama originally was called Festival (페스티벌) then changed to You’ve Fallen For Me (넌 내게 반했어). (Full details over at Dramabeans.) But we wanted to know which title you preferred. The hands down winner was
You’ve Fallen For Me
Jung Yong Hwa plays Lee Shin, a college student majoring in modern music. Singer and guitarist for a band called The Stupid, he is known for his good looks and passion for music. With a cold personality, he only cares about his music, uninterested in a traditional career or future. Shin is infatuated with a dance professor at his university, but this all changes when he meets Lee Kyu Won.
Park Shin Hye plays Lee Kyu Won, a bright, outgoing student born into a prestigious family. She is majoring in traditional Korean instruments, such as the gayageum. Kyu Won’s grandfather is one of the top traditional musicians of his age, and his wish is that his granddaughter will become a traditional music prodigy.
Trying to live up to her grandfather’s expectations, Kyu Won immerses herself in training and knows nothing besides traditional music. One day, Kyu Won’s friends drag her to a concert to watch The Stupid, and she is instantly captivated by Lee Shin playing guitar on stage…
Here’s the top 10 English titles that were suggested:
I’m With Stupid
I’ve Fallen For You (reversal of You’ve Fallen For Me)
An Abstract Harmony
The Music of my Life
My Stupid Love
The Rhythm of Love
Falling Stupid for You
Lucky I’m Yours
It came down to a voting match between Heartstrings and I’m With Stupid – and it was a close one! With less than 100 votes, I’m With Stupid edged out Heartstrings. With such great creativity, we’ve decided to submit the entire list of top 10 user submitted titles to the Korean producers!
Finally, we’re going to send DramaFever T-shirts to Imi and Roger Bentson for coming up with Heartstrings and I’m With Stupid. Thanks so much for participating! It’s going to be an anxious wait until June, but in the meantime, we’ve got another Kdrama to name – SPARKLING, or should we say TWINKLE TWINKLE? Help us decide here.
