PROGRAM NOTE

What can songs do? Musical artist Jung Taechun has pondered on this question for over 40 years. Some call him an idealist for standing up to censorship and standing his ground as a folk singer with a keen awareness of reality. However, he claims that he’s always directed his gaze at shade rather than light. This documentary chronicles the life of Jung Taechun who has interacted with the public since his debut in 1978 using various materials and interviews. Generations of people testify to the inspiration and hope provided by the celebrated singer. (NAM Sunwoo)
