Brief Synopsis :
Four veteran actors, Baek Yoon-sik ("Art of Fighting", 2000), Park Joon-gyoo ("My Wife Is a Gangster 2", 2003) and Im Ha-ryong ("Welcome to Dongmakgol", 2005) make breakthrough lead performances in "Bravo My Life - 2007", now showing in theaters. Inspired by the true story of a group of white-collar rockers Gapgeunse (Grade A Earned Income Tax) Band, the movie traces the depressing retirement of Min-hyuk (Baek Yoon-sik).
Diligent but far from ambitious, 50-year-old Min-hyuk dedicated 30 years to his firm. Awaiting his retirement "due to old age" in 30 days, the man sighs deeply, saddened by the "three tragedies of modern man: Having to retire while still young, breaking one's back to earn children's tuition fees and not even being able to die because of a longer lifespan".
While Min-hyuk's employees prepare a special farewell gift for him, hidden talents of fellow workers are unveiled: Min-hyuk was once an aspiring rocker, with a flair for drumming, while Seung-jae and Seok-won turn out to be guitarists, and Jong-su is a saxophone player.
These four unlikely white-collar workers form a rock band and relive the glory of their youth, adding color and rhythm to their dull, monotonous lives.
