[HanCinema's Film Review] "Radio Star" + DVD Giveaway 2017/10/14,
Back in 1988, Gon (played by Park Joong-hoon) was a singer at the top of his game, with national recognition. But eighteen years later, he's stuck playing songs to sparsely populated rooms. Only Gon's fans from better years remember who the guy is anymore. Them, and people who scour the tabloids for arrest reports of yesterday's old stars.

She's lived in the United States and presumably done interesting things there, having a son that speaks perfect English. And then here's Hyeong-Goo (played by Kim Tae-hoon), living his fairly normal unremarkable life as just a gruff high school teacher, his only apparent claim to fame being that he's the inspiration behind her novel.
