There's this scene that always enters my brain whenever I think of the words Piano + Romance. It's the scene from the Korean (Yes, Korean, NOT the sell out American version) romantic comedy My Sassy Girl. It is a story about a mediocre guy falling in love with a girl he can't seem to put his finger on, much less handle.

I first watched this movie when I was in high school, still speculative if it was really as good as they said it was since I've never really been fond of Asian movies. And let me tell you, it was.

Since then, I fell in love with the piece that the lead female character played on this auditorium scene where she, more or less, demanded the guy to trick his way past the guards of her all girl's school to give her a rose in front of hundreds of people inside the auditorium. He didn't know that she could play the piano and was scheduled to perform that day.

Canon in C is a derivative of Pachelbel's classical hit, Canon in D. In my opinion, it loses it's strictly-classical property and makes it a much more mellow and sentimental piece. It is a joy to hear and play. Even after years, this still remains as one of my favorite pieces.

I omitted the trill part in the middle of the piece because I wanted to retain the lullaby quality of the music which I think the sudden trill shatters upon impact.

For those who have stumbled upon this site and have miraculously watched the video, thank you. You have made my day.
