Dal-ho is the lead singer of a local heavy metal band in a small rural town in Korea. A somewhat desperate owner and manager of a small record label in Seoul visits the nightclub where Dal-ho’s band is rehearsing. The owner of the label listens to Dal-ho sing and becomes convinced that Dal-ho has what it takes to become a star. They follow Dal-ho to a nearby restaurant and offer him a recording contract with Big Sound Entertainment. Dal-ho excepts on the spot. The caveat? The record label releases exclusively Trot music, a musical style loved by the older generation, but despised by the younger kids.
