| An underdog rock singer than find his destiny as a.... King of Folk
To conclude the plot outline is simple, an unemployed dream to be a playboy/rockstar singer accidentally signed a folk song producer. He became the one and only, nation frenzy folk singer, who trademark is wearing a mask while singing old folk song. He met a girl he love in the process and in the end he find his true self and understand the truth and beauty of music.

However the way the film was made, lots of entertaining and funny scene make this simple underdog story a fun to watch. The main character is again great at what he do playing this kind of underdog role with his typical sense of humour.

I hesitated to watch this movie but watched it anyway because the main character is funny and was in some great movies that made me laugh till I pee (just a little) like My Sassy Girl and Two Guys. This film is quite funny, entertaining (they spent millions making the stage) and too bad I don't know Korean folk song or I will like it more. Nice to watch with your girlfriend, she will like the love story and singing and you can enjoy the jokes.
