The film re-created Korea’s authentic sound in a modern music system and fully expressed the director’s desire to restore the family and human rights.
Director Cho Jung Rae’s crazy passion for pansori (Korean tradition music) for the past 28 years was combined with the solid teamwork of the production team, who worked on Spirits’ Homecoming, and finally flourished in The Soundman.
Also, attention is being paid to director Cho Jung Rae’s decision to select Lee Bong Geun, a master of the Korean traditional music, to be the star of the film.
Even with the releaser trailer, the movie excites the viewers with the music and passionate actors. The music that Hak Kyu (Lee Bong Geun) and Dae Bong (Park Chul Min) produce is full of excitement. “Fallen Yangban” (Kim Dong Wan), who gets the crowd going, captivates everyone watching the performance.
Also, charismatic Kim Jun (Kim Min Joon) and tearful Gan Nan (Lee Yoo Ri) leave a strong impression. The music, which is presented with a dramatic narrative, is full of excitement, but sometimes the mournful voices are mixed in, touching the hearts of the viewers.
The Soundman is scheduled to mee the audience in theaters in June.
