Music appears in all aspects of Korean culture and the music industry, helped by government backed strategies, exports its manufactured pop culture with seismic impact throughout the world. It is then unbelievable to think that the history of the Korean music scene and especially the origins of Korean rock n’ roll from which the legacy inhabits every piece of modern pop culture, is barely known. LEGENDS aims to be the “Buena Vista Social Club” of Korea and tell the story of a generation.
I was the development producer for this documentary. I developed the basic concept based on the main producer’s idea, and built the pitch, the treatment, and the proposal. Our team was selected to participate in the Crossing Borders Documentary development workshop in 2016. Unfortunately, the producer dropped the project in 2017.
