Stuck in a small town, aspiring rocker Dal Ho makes a living reluctantly playing trot at local clubs.

When small-time recording company head Jang offers Dal Ho a contract, he eagerly grabs the opportunity, believing that his time has finally come.

After he signs, however, Dal Ho discovers that he won't be rocking after all. Instead, he will be singing trot. Unable to back out of his contract, Dal Ho takes to the stage behind a mask to hide his embarrassment, and ends up an overnight sensation. The wannabe rocker seems to have found his true calling, but doing music he dislikes.

With the help of Jang and a certain cute trot singer, maybe he'll actually learn the passion of trot.

I truly liked this movie. I didn't know Cha Tae Hyun could sing...and so well! Damn! Another feel-good movie for the masses. No reason to cry, more reasons to smile. Cha Tae Hyun played the perfect part as Bong-feel/Bong Dal-ho. His naivete in music as well as in life was absorbed well into the character. With some light comedy, good music, and smart drama, this movie will give you enumerable smiles to get you through your day.

I have more respect for him than I ever did after reading his profile. Ugh. Another one bites the dust...married that is. I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised that he married his high school sweetheart of 13 years in 2006. We share the same wedding anniversary. *sigh* More than that, he stayed with her for that long....for so many years. Kudos to both of them. *hugs, hugs, and more hugs to you Cha-kun*
