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.

He believes that you need talented players in order to give marvelous performances.
Thus, he abhors players with mediocre talent and treats them with disdain.
This is how he earned the nickname, “Orchestra Killer” and went on to become a legendary musical figure in Korea.

Durumi / actress Lee Ji-ah

He shares the same name as conductor Kang Ma-ae.
He’s straightforward, frank, cool and open. He’s a man of character.
