It is 1960s Seoul. Oh Geun-tae (Jung Woo), a country boy with a booming baritone voice, is discovered by aspiring singer-songwriter Lee Jang-hui (Jin Goo) and thrust into the bustling world of Seoul’s iconic folk music café C’est Si Bon. He unwittingly becomes the third member of the yet-to-debut “C’est Si Bon Trio” and the begrudging buffer between two rivals in the band—the vocal genius Song Chang-sik (Jo Bok-rae) and the heartthrob Yun Hyeong-ju (Kang Ha-neul). One day, aspiring actress Min Ja-young (Han Hyo-joo) enters the picture and the young men are completely bewitched. Will their muse inspire them to create legendary music or wreck the band before they even begin?
“This reassessment of the golden years of South Korea’s Western-style folk music scene follows a trio of musicians through the turbulent era…Realistically showcasing the interior of C’est Si Bon, with its devoted coterie of youthful, enthusiastic music fans and rotating roster of idolized performers” – The Hollywood Reporter
