Based on the true story of Kim Ho-Joong, who first appeared on Korean TV show STARKING on July 18, 2009. During the program, Kim Ho-Joong surprised people with his vocal abilities and also made people cry because of his background story. He grew up as a troubled kid who joined gangs, but because of his grandmother he began to sing in earnest.Written by
There is a combination of gangster trying to make good and classical music singer story here. It keeps things interesting with some action here and there. Some of the character's reactions are exaggerated and some situations are obviously contrived for dramatic purposes. Like the fight before the competition. But at least things aren't dull as it could be for classical music movies. Lee Je Hoon looks a bit old for a high school kid. He lip synchs well. He does not sing a lot of opera just Tosca and Turandot but it sounds great when he does. Another K movie about a teacher and student For Horowitz is also good and less theatrical.
