[NEWS] Heartstrings <넌 내게 반했어> Shorten to 15 Episodes

MBC has announced that Heartstrings <넌 내게 반했어> will end at episode 15.

Several days ago, the director of the drama discussed with Star News saying that "Heartstrings will be a 15 episode drama."

Heartstrings's actress Park Shin Hye was hospitalized earlier due to a car accident which cause a setback on the continual filming of the drama. Park Shin Hye demonstrated her fighting spirit by going back to work soon after to continue filming but due to severe pain, she was eventually forced to take a week's rest.

MBC had then broadcast a special in place of episode 8 which was scheduled to be broadcast the same week as episode 7. The special was a collection of scenes from episode 1 to episode 7. Because of this, the drama is behind one episode, thus reducing the original 16 episodes to a 15 episode drama which will broadcast its final episode on August 18th. 

Nevertheless, Heartstrings has been bought by eight different countries including the United States, Japan, and China and will be broadcast there.

In regard to episodes overseas, the drama may be edited to be 12 episodes or 20 episodes or any number of episodes befitting that country. 

Heartstrings is a college drama about hopes and dreams of youth, of first love. Park Shin Hye and CNBlue's Jung Yong Hwa are in the limelight as two of Hallyu's brightest stars. 

The rights of the drama was bought by the US, China, Hong Kong, Philippines, Japan even before the broadcast of the series.
