Could Have Been A Great Drama

The music and songs in Spring Waltz were fantastic. I love them all especially Flower and Clementine with its superb arrangement. They definitely compensated for a weak performance from most of the cast.

David Henney would have been perfect as the other man in Park Eun-young's love life except for his constant dialogue switch from English to Korean and back, which didn't make sense at all. How hard is it to memorize a few Korean lines?

Han Hye Joo was a big disappointment as Park Eun-Young, the heroine in the drama. Her acting was bland. Even her emotional love scenes with Yoon Jae-Ha appeared so dry, I felt Seo Do Young deserved a better partner. Should I blame the director for not pushing her hard enough?

Lee So Yeon as the bitchy Song Yi-Na looked too professorial with her glasses and in all aspects, was not a convincing 'other woman' for Seo Do Young.

Among the main characters, only Seo Do Young, as the brilliant pianist with a secret past, made an impact in the drama. He was very impressive in his portrayal as the cold and lonely Yoon Jae-ha. I really felt for him. To think that this was his first major acting role... 3 cheers!

Yet, in spite of most of the cast's shortcomings, I would watch it again, if only to see Seo Do Young, hear his drop-dead voice and listen to the drama's music and songs.

To sum it up, Spring Waltz is the drama that could have been the director's memorable end to a series.
