YesAsia Editorial Description

Inspired by Seoul's indie music scene, the youth omnibus Acoustic strings together three stories about aspiring musicians played by some of Korea's top idols. 2AM's Im Seul Ong, CNBLUE's Lee Jong Hyun and Kang Min Hyuk, and popular young actresses Shin Se Kyung (High Kick Through the Roof) and Baek Jin Hee (Bandhobi) are the photogenic dreamers struggling to find their musical break in this wistful film directed by Yoo Sang Hyun.

In "Broccoli", Shin Se Kyung is a guitar-strumming singer-songwriter with a rare disease. Real-life bandmates Lee Jong Hyun and Kang Min Hyuk play bandmates in the film as well in their episode "Bakery Attack". The two friends decide to sell their guitar for money, but everything changes after they meet a very special bakery owner. Im Seul Ong and Baek Jin Hee form a lonely budding couple of the future connected by a song in "Unlock". True to its theme, Acoustic is filled with music and band sound, including songs from the film's young stars.

Acoustic and the Machine (part A) Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
“Acoustic” are 3 stories relating to acoustic twangy things with beautiful young dudes from S Korea. First off is “Broccoli” concerning fatally sick Se-Kyung (Se-Kyung Shin) who needs to express her ‘Broccoli’ song. Her ‘sickness’ is temporally neutralised if Se-Kyung eats ramen, but she identifies in a songwriter who’d expressed ‘locked up feelings’ through a song before he died. Liking that dream, Se-Kyung claims back her acoustic guitar from musician friend Ji-Gyu (Jun-il Im), and sets off to vindicate her dis-ease by obtaining a recording contract. Se-Kyung’s ‘Broccoli’ song refers to a love feud between a nasty green ‘broccoli’ and ‘setting free’ her unexpressed love feelings by ‘singing out’ to people; a sort of ‘butterfly transformation catharsis’, to transmute sad emotion into ‘free’ feelings of elation. “Bakery Attack” is CNBlue boys Jong-hyun (as Sung-Won) and Min-hyuk (as Hae-Won) as two struggling musicians with moth infested pockets, getting booted out of a club for playing hard glam rock. This ‘get-outta-here’ scenario breaks Sung-Won’s guitar string, and unable to replace it, asks Hae-Won to sell the guitar to a buyer in town. But Hae-Won passing a bakery shop, spends bus money Sung-Won gave him on tasty pastries instead, and then leaves Sung-Won’s guitar behind in the shop.

Afterwards, Hae-Won, seeing a leggy girl in high heels, gets disorientated (fancy pastries, legs - no wonder!), but finds the buyer without a guitar to sell and infuriates Sung-Won by his pretence. Eventually the boys return to the bakery shop and discover the owner was once in a music band. Later the boys have a ‘dream gig’ with a song about ‘flying high, free’. “Unlock”, is set in a war-infested future, as orphan Jin-hee (Jin-hee Baek) and a bartender watch the ‘vintage’ CN Blue performance on pirate TV. Jin-hee uses a cyborg arm after losing her own from a bomb explosion. She meets Ji-hoo (2AM’s Seul-ong Lim), an acoustic researcher, who after accidentally hitting Jin-hee’s metal arm with a baseball takes an interest in her. Ji-hoo, also an antique technology enthusiast, marvels when he sees Jin-hee’s silver mirror (actually a defunct rare ‘ancient’ iPhone). But the iPhone’s a personal item from Jin-hee’s dead mother and refuses to part with it. Jin-hee using music to block out the dropping bomb sounds, strives Ji-hoo to get the iPhone working. So Ji-hoo and his professor ‘unlock’ the iPhone, revealing treasured digital memories of Jin-hee’s childhood.

Acoustic and the Machine (part B) Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
“Acoustic” is about guitar musicians, but different from what you might expect. “Broccoli” and “Unlock” are the most unusual episodes, although have light humour and romance (Jin-hee’s barman friend’s neon L-O-V-E sign is cute), but “Bakery Attack” is the episode you’d most expect from this film. Its funny, light and certainly musical, with the CN Blue boys Jong-hyun and Min-hyuk in rocking form. CN Blue fans should love their buffoonery and dry wit (plus their New York Doll’s type glam rock outfits), and their somewhat cool comedy camaraderie. Their ‘TV gig’ song is also very vibrant and ‘rocky’. Should Hae-Won have had a RAyMaN tee though, thinking of Se-Kyung? By the last film “Unlock” I pondered the machine element and also wondered about ‘illness’ and war themes. Certainly there’s a music song aspect, by the tape cassette song both Ji-Woo and Jin-Hee share (and Seul-ong’s final song), but the recurring ‘broccoli’ theme suggests returning to the ‘green’ of life; as opposed to corrosive technologies, toxic disorientation, dividing war and biosphere imbalances. “Acoustic” was surprising, as I did expect, obviously, musicians and everything K-pop, but I found the added ambiguity more interesting. 2AM’s Seul-ong is certainly the charming gent in his concern over Jin-hee’s orphaned situation and “Unlock” is mostly the befitting romance. Jin-hee I also thought looked somewhat like Soo-hee from Wonder Girls. ^^

In “Broccoli” why was Se-Kyung sad though? I wasn’t sure she was physically dying or even in a physical hospital, as surly no hospital would have a picture of a framed ‘inspirational’ green broccoli on the wall, unless she was ‘Se-Kyung in Wonderland’ or secretly in love with the ‘green’ hornet, and I’m sure that her condition was introverted frustration. Se-Kyung though (lil’ miss from K-horror “Cinderella”) is certainly getting more beautiful by each New Year! If you enjoy this film and like acoustic inclusive Korean bands, one album that I’d recommend (as well as ones by CN Blue and 2AM ;) is Plastic People’s Vol 3 “Snap” (which also came with a tote bag on first press). But for “Acoustic” expect something a little unusual, and certainly funny, endearing and musically worthwhile, and plenty of pretty people to please here - that’s a fact. Shame there’s no MV, as this DVD only as 3 short trailers as extras.
