Two musicians who retired from their musical careers for different reasons join together with a demanding and difficult genius conductor to form an orchestra against all odds.
Although it requires a lot of hard work to form their orchestra, they keep chasing their dreams of doing what they love the most in the world and this gives them great satisfaction.
Three young and old people with different personalities and life experiences gather together under a common dream and they find love and the room to forgive each other as they eventually earn each other’s respect. The drama exudes a positive energy.

He believes that you need talented players in order to give marvelous performances.

Age: 24. A genius conductor. Trumpet player
He shares the same name as conductor Kang Ma-ae.
He’s straightforward, frank, cool and open. He’s a man of character.

    Hyeon Bin as King Jeongjo and Han Ji-min as step-grandmother Queen Jeongsun make an odd pair in "The Fatal Encounter". Provided by Lotte Entertainment Back on the big screen as a ripped king of Joseon, Hyeon Bin may have been a little bit too ambitious with "The Fatal Encounter". Playing the 22nd Joseon monarch Jeongjo (1752-1800), Hyeon tries to hone in on action, drama and history in an intricate plot that depicts the 24 hours leading up to an attempted assassination,...More
