In the late 1960s, C’est Si Bon is the music bar where every acoustic band’s dream lies. There Geun-tae, a naïve country boy, meets the young musical prodigies Hyung-joo and Chang-sik, and forms the band named after it -- the C’est Si Bon Trio. As the three young artists bicker over their music, beautiful socialite Ja-young enters the picture and becomes their muse, and a series of moving love songs come from it. Geun-tae’s pure-heartedness wins Ja-young over but when she accepts a once-in-lifetime opportunity for a shot at an acting career, they part ways. After 20 years, the untold story of their love, song, and youth at C’est Si Bon is finally brought to light.
For some lucky ones they would end up with a happy-ever-after, but for some loving the person with all their heart is the closest they can get to be with their one great love. I give you C’est si Bon if you want a solitary and quiet movie me time filled with love
Oh Geun-tae (JUNG Woo) is a country boy with a booming baritone who is discovered by aspiring singer-songwriter Lee Jang-hui (JIN Goo) and thrust into the bustling world of Seoul’s iconic folk music café-C’est Si Bon. Unwittingly, he becomes the third member of the yet-to-debut “C’est Si Bon Trio” and the begrudging buffer between two rival musicians-the vocal genius, Song Chang-shik (JO Bok-rae), and the heartthrob, Yoon Hyeong-ju (KANG Ha-neul). Amidst the smoke and chatter of C’est Si Bon’s youthful clientele, they meet aspiring actress Min Ja-young (HAN Hyo-joo) and find themselves completely bewitched. Will their muse inspire them to create legendary music, or tear them apart before they even begin?
