The entire world is made up of musical notes.

Director kang hyoung chul

kang hyoung chul made a spectacular debut in 2008 with the film Scandal Makers (8.22M admissions) and his movies such as Sun-ny (2011, 7.45M admissions) and Tazza-The Hidden Card (2014, 4.01M admissions) are loved by the audience for being hilarious, yet heart-warming. The 2018 film Swing Kids won him the Best Director Award at the Baeksang Arts Awards for his unique style of directing combined with music and dance. The auteur recently appeared on the JTBC show [Movieroom] where he expressed his affection for film music by saying “I think of music as one of the actors.” Sunny and Swing Kids featured playlists that effectively capture the phasis of the 70s and 50s respectively, evoking nos-talgic memories to the senior audience while allowing the younger generation to better understand and relate to the past. In partic-ular, Swing Kids garnered the attention of the media for featuring original Beatles songs for the first time in a Korean film.
