“The Happy Life”
The members of Active Volcano once burned with a passion for the rock & roll life, but with graduation and the responsibilities of adulthood, the college band-mates eventually drifted apart. Now in their forties, none of their lives have gone according to plan. Lead guitarist Ki-young (Jung Jin-young, The King and the Clown) receives an allowance from his wife and attitude from his teenage daughter. Underemployed bass guitarist Sung-wook (Kim Yun-seok, The Thieves) works day and night to finance his overachieving wife’s academic goals for their two young sons. And drummer Hyuk-soo (Kim Sang-ho, Moss) owns a used car dealership to provide for his wife and children, who have relocated to Canada – without him. The three friends reconnect at the memorial service for their lead singer, Sang-woo. Ki-young takes Sang-woo’s death hard, and it sparks his determination to reunite the band. With Sang-woo’s son (Jang Keun-suk, You’re Beautiful) stepping into his father’s role as vocalist, can the members of Active Volcano take the stage once again?
