London Korean Film Night: C’est Si Bon (2015)

5451

Inspired by real events and set in the late 1960s, C’est Si Bon is the music bar where every acoustic band’s dream lies, and where Korea’s leading folk song are born. It is where Geun-tae, the naive country boy met the young musical prodigies Hyung-joo and Chang-sik, and formed the band named after it, the C’est Si Bon Trio. As the three young artists bicker over their music, beautiful socialite Ja-young enters the picture and becomes their muse, and a series of moving love songs come from it. Gaun-tae’s pure-heartedness wins Ja-young over but when she accepts a once-in-lifetime opportunity for a shot at an acting career, they part ways. After 20 years, the untold story of their love, song and youth at C’est Si Bon is finally brought to light.
