Like a music movie, the sound, balance, and sense of arrangement surprise the audience. It shows the possibility that such a rich music can be captured in a film in Korea as well. Billy Irish ‘Bad Guy’, Mariah Carey ‘Without you’, Coldplay ‘A sky full of stars’, and Louis Armstrong ‘What a Wonderful World’ etc. moisturize the ears with a texture that is more than a live concert.
In particular,’Happy’ by Pharrell Williams, where Ji-hoon and foreign buskers in the play, is the highlight of this movie. Both the arrangement and the sound are perfect, and the editing is also excellent in this scene. You may find yourself shaking your feet without even knowing.
