The drama is about the amateur, 4-member group Big Heat and their brilliant, youth tale of a journey, amongst their hopes and setbacks, to accomplish an undying dream.
Park Sung-woong (Baker King Kim Tak-goo, Cain and Abel) plays Hwang Jwa-soo, one of the top composers and producers in the industry who gets scammed by his business partner and high school junior, Goo Bon-gul, and loses everything. After five years of living in destitute, he rekindles his dream by gathering the members of Big Heat.
Lee Joo-hyun (Pink Lipstick, Ja Myung Go) plays the antagonistic Goo Bon-gul who is described as a business-minded person. Although he remains successful in the industry, Goo Bon-gul feels intimidated by the introduction of Hwang Jaw-soo’s group Big Heat. He uses cunning and cruel methods to interfere with their success.
It feels so good to have a wish come true when you’re least expecting it. After watching the trailer for Birdie Buddy, I was itching for Park Sung-woong to take on another project and look! Ta-da! Better yet, Lee Joo-hyun is in it, too, and I have a soft spot for him because of Sweet Spy and When at Night. The premise doesn’t sound all that new, but I love music-themed dramas. As long as it doesn’t turn out like I am Legend, which seemed to use music more like a prop and less as the main plot, I think I’ll be an easy viewer to please. I mean, if I get to see Park Sung-woong and Lee Joo-hyun on screen together, who am I kidding, I’ll still watch even if that means I fast-forward through the whole thing and bang my head in frustration. Also starring in Big Heat will be Choi A-ra (Second Proposal) who plays the female lead Eun-ha. Her character is part of a girl idol group under the management of the country's top entertainment agency.
Cheers to Big Heat! Though you’re a cable drama, here are cheers for your success and fame!
(Just remember that you’ll have one angry fan if you underutilize your resources… Fighting!)
