Plot

Musical director Yoo Il-Han (Kim Rae-Won) is arrogant and has no qualms exaggerating the lengths of his talents. He was once a promising musical director, but, after the box-office failure of a big budget musical, he now works on children's musicals. Nevertheless, Yoo Il-Han dreams of one day working on Broadway in New York City. His big chance then arrives. A TV musical competition program is set out to select the main child actor for a big budget musical of King Jungjo from the Joseon Dynasty. The musical will be performed on Broadway.

The setup for the TV musical competition program involves five musical directors as they each select one child actor to mentor. The directors then train their pupil and the TV musical competition eventually selects one child actor to play King Jungjo. Musical director Yoo Il-Han is one of the five music directors taking part in the television program. The first stage of the show involves each of the five musical directors turned away from the stage as they listen, but cannot see, various children auditioning for the TV program.

Musical director Yoo Il-Han then selects a child named Young-Kwan (Ji Dae-Han), who turns out to be a half Filipino-Korean child. Once the first episode of the TV show program ends, Yoo Il-Han berates an assistant director of the TV program. He's furious he was allowed to pick a child, that he assumes has no chance of playing King Jungjo and blowing his chance to work on Broadway. Making matters worse for Yoo Il-Han, Young-Kwan possesses zero dancing abilities. Unable to change his selection, Yoo Il-Han half-heartedly begins to train Young-Kwan. He then begins to see something special in the child.

cho yun hee I'm a theatre and stage lover .. I spent 14 years of my life on stage as an amateur .. we would like to play a musical this year and this movie came into my life suddenly.. then I remember over and over again how much I love to being on the stage with my dreams and my soul.. Thanks to you for being so sensitive and hearty to this issues and thanks for your real, serious and sincere acts..

I definitely recommend this film with my swollen eyes :,}

LadyG. I'm sad this movie did not make it big at the box office. It was a true gem. But I'm happy that amazing boy was recognized for his talents. I hope to see more of his work in the future. He was so cute too.

tatal the "filipino-korean" boy does not look filipino, mixed race filipino kids usually look more of the other half than the half filipino in him~

Mery Rahmania sure did he deserve the reward.

restina siregar that's a really good movie, soo much fell when I watch this. Someone can do anything when belive and try hard.. And one from all.. God create every people is special.. I hope, I can get the disk of this drama and the soundtrak. Semangattttttt!!! Fighting!!!! Hwaitting!!! Bagus..daebak..well done...

Mr 818 It's a good movie. I like the ending although it's not a happy ending.

jojo The Filipino - Korean boy is actly Srilankan - Korean in real life.... and he actly looks more Lankan than Korean eventhough usually East Asian genes are more strong.... (as far iv heard)

SweetPinkx I'm so gonna watch this!! The trailer is nice..I'm sure it will be a great movie! Plus Lee Kwang Soo is casted!! I love his acting..I love him in Running Man and recently ended drama Innocent Man!

Catherine Smith Can't wait to see his new movie. He is my favorite actor. Wish he was more known in USA.

Tania Busuioc I’m so excited! Kim Rae Won is my favorit korean artist! Aja Kim she!

yoshi gonna look forward to this! so excited!

podeclover i don't know why, but this idea came to my mind : Park Cheondoong (MBLAQ Thunder) as the filipino-korean boy, since he had lived in phillipines when he was young.

filipino wow! this is interesting! i wonder who the filipino-korean boy would be and what implications would occur because of his heritage :D and woohoo! it's kim rae won!

milo josie wow...something to look forward to... God bless...
