Entertaining combination
7 November 2020 | by phd_travelSee all my reviews

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.
