Beethoven Virus is a 2008 television comedy series from Korea about sharp tongued orchestra conductor, Kang Gun Woo (Kim Myung Min). Kang is a perfectionist at his job who makes the lives of his players miserable as he berates them for not living up to his high standards. As the series progresses, Kang meets a lovely violin player, Du Ru-Mi (Lee Ji-Ah), and a young cop who shares his name. Du Ru-Mi suffers from headaches and tinnitus which effect her hearing while the young Kang Gun Woo (Jang Geun-Suk), without any formal training, turns out be a musical genius in addition to being a traffic officer. Soon, Kang the Conductor, Du Ru-Mi and Kang the policeman become tangled in a love triangle fueled by Du Ru-Mi's hearing difficulties and the confusion with the two Kangs names. Guest appearances are made by famed pianist Lim Dong-Hyek, popular violinist Richard Yongjae O`Neil and a host of other famous musicians.
