PROGRAM NOTE

Everyone mentions her when asked who the 1st generation of jazz musicians is in Korea, adding that jazz wouldn't have been continued in Korea if not for her. It's Park Seong-yeon, the musician who ran Korea's first jazz club - Club Janus - and she provided it for other musicians to perform. Diva Janus follows the late Park's footsteps through her past and interviews by her peer musicians. It's solemn how Park performs rhythmically even in her wheelchair yet you'll find yourself grooving along her jazz. Supported by 2019 Jecheon Music Film Project Promotion.(Kim Songhee)
