This film dramatizes the life of Lee Mi-ja, one of the greatest stars in Korean pop music. When she rose to fame with her hit single ‘Camellia Lady’ in 1964, she was not yet thirty years old (born in 1941). The ups and downs of her life provide ample subject matter. The popular director Han Hyeongmo based the film on the radio show of the same title that had been aired half a year before, and Park Chun-seok took produced music for the film. (LEE Junhee)
