In 1994, the day singer Yoo Yeol first became a radio DJ,
Mi-su (Kim Go-eun), who was working at the bakery left by her mother, met Hyeon-woo (Jung Hae-in), who happened to visit.
He feels excited, but due to an unexpected incident, contact is cut off.
"At that time, I thought you wouldn't come back. But I waited…"
The two meet again like a miracle, and grow their hearts between excitement and affection, but the situation and time of each other just keep diverge.
Two people who repeat coincidence and inevitability with 'Yooyeol's Music Album' on the radio even in the midst of the continuous intersection…
Can they tune to each other like the radio they listened to together?
[Yoo-Yeol's Music Album], a miraculous medium that connects two men and women in the movie, started on October 1, 1994, and aired on the radio until April 15, 2007. [Yooyeol's Music Album], which we shared every morning with listeners every morning from 9 am to 11 am on KBS Cool FM (89.1MHz in the metropolitan area), was the radio program we loved at the time in the movie <Yooyeol's Music Album>. as still remains in the memory.
The title of the movie <Yooyeol's Music Album> may be familiar to some and unfamiliar to others. It depicts the moment when a man and a woman miraculously meet when the radio program of the same name, <Yoo-Yeol's Music Album>, started airing. At that time, while listening to the voice of DJ Yoo-Yeol, they evoke happy, sad, gloomy, joyful memories and moments of remembrance. Just as radio existed back then and now, I think that universal 'sensibility of love' is always with us. Thus, the title gradually found its place. It wasn't something we decided arbitrarily, but I thought that the power of the title was finding its place. Like 'music' that we want to keep in someone's memory, like 'album', we will flow with the time in the movie like this.

The representative works that have been successful as melodrama films in Korea include <Introduction to Architecture>, <I'm Going to Meet You>, and <About Time>.

From hidden masterpieces that only I want to know to world-class musicians
Music list from the 1990s to 2000s that you want to include in the album
The movie <Yooyeol's Music Album> summons Korea's hidden masterpieces and popular songs from the 1990s to the 2000s as a playlist in the movie. From the 1990s, when single album sales alone exceeded 2 million copies, to the early 2000s, when streaming was not yet active, the music in the movie was a masterpiece that hit Korea at the time. Gem-like masterpieces, as if they were heard as requested songs on a favorite radio program, are played together throughout the movie. Music that responds to your sympathetic nerves just by listening to a song, a song that feels like the hearts of the main characters who want to understand each other's feelings with lyrics like a poem, and 'Listen to' is the OST of the movie <Yooyeol's Music Album>. It gives rise to another expectation.
Music director Yeon Ri-mok, who was in charge of the film's music, said, "I wanted to leave the impression that the music in the movie <You-Yeol's Music Album> is like a radio request album. When I listen to the radio, various stories come out, music keeps coming out, and various genres come out, and I think this movie is just that kind of movie. There are stories that are as moving as listening to the radio, you can shed tears with sympathy, and you can listen to the music because you like it. I think it would be good to listen to music and watch a movie as if listening to the radio,” he said. Director Jung Ji-woo also said, “If you look for music from the 1990s to the 2000s, there are a lot of really unforgettable lyrics. All the staff worked hard to find music that could replace the feelings and situations of the two men in the movie with lyrics.”
The movie <Yooyeol's Music Album> will invite the audience to the screen with the music that exists deep and dimly in our daily life like the radio that was once our daily life.
Reminds me of the moments and memories we loved back then
Retro visual meets well-made production!
As the movie <Yooyeol's Music Album> is a retro sensual melodrama genre, it put great effort into directing the situation and background of the times. Director Jung Ji-woo and key staff poured sweat and effort into everything visible, including clothes, space, and art, to realize the 'present in the past' in this film. Director Jung Ji-woo said in this regard, “In dealing with the past, there is a tendency to treat the era as the old and the old by looking at the present as the starting point. But, in fact, if you look at tomorrow, just as today was the past, the moment in which the main characters in the movie live is the 'present'. So it was important to us that the film's past should not be seen as outdated and outdated. Because of that, we made it with the idea of 'present' as artistic, spatial, and even their emotional problems, but when we call them, we just call them 1994 and 1997.” said the intention.
Director of Photography Cho Hyung-rae also said, "I tried to capture the anxiety of the times and the imperfections of the generations. It seems that the world before and after the IMF and the world before and after the millennium were times of upheaval for everyone. In the movie, it seems to have worked effectively when using a handheld camera to realize that part, when setting an angle, and when setting a shooting location,” he said.
Art director Bae Junsu said, “I have been thinking deeply about props and spaces that the so-called Newtro generation is curious about and interested in. First of all, it was difficult to set up the shooting, but when I was shooting, I really liked the space. In particular, the house of Mi-su, the main character, is particularly affectionate because the warm personality of Mi-su is represented by the space. In order to give a new retro sensibility that can be felt in alleys and neighborhoods in the movie, we put a lot of effort into the selection of places and art settings.”
The 1990s and early 2000s, which seem vague but can be clearly remembered by many generations, have become memories that convey analog sensibility. The unique sensibility and retro visual created by the well-made production with the participation of the producers of <I'm going to meet you now> and <Introduction to Architecture>, and the movie <Yoo-Yeol's Music Album>, gives viewers living in the present a new and pleasant past. It will be a memory recall button.
