Synopsis

In 20 09, filmmaker Baek Seung-hwa storms the documentar y films scene with Turn It Up to Eleven, a quirk y account on the bir th of Incheon-based live club and indie label, ‘Ruby Salon’ and the bands it is at tached to. Like the ‘Ruby Salon’ which was a breath of fresh air to the lagging Korean rock music scene, Turn It Up to Eleven also came as a pleasant shock to the Korean film industr y where rockumentaries were not so prevalent. In 2012, Baek returns with Turn It Up to Eleven 2: WILD DAYS to exclaim the need for a rock and roll star in this confounded countr y. The band Galax y E xpress who had appeared in the filmmaker’s previous film with another band, Tobacco Juice in which the filmmaker himself plays the drums returns to star in the sequel to explain the conception of the band in 20 0 6 as well as a detailed introduction of each member: the eccentric Jong-hyun who’s in charge of explosive vocals and guitar; the only-black- dressing bassist and vocalist Ju-hyun who dreams of the band going cosmic; and leopard-print-loving Hee-k won who became a drummer because he considered it the most basic. In the midst of earning the reputation of the ‘King of Korean rock,’ the film follows the three-week-long U.S. tour the band made in 2012. L acking any sense of objectivit y, the filmmaker’s brazenly whimsical narration combined with the appearance of the owner of the music label company, a designer and pop columnist who accompanied the band on their tour becomes an explosive outcome of candid humor. This is a tale of three rock and rolling men whose star t may be meager but end will be great. (CHUNG Woo-chung)
