The story of two young people who became swept up in the Gwangju uprising in May 1980.

Hwang Hee Tae (Lee Do Hyun) is a troublemaker who hates anything that is predictable.

However, due to unexpected events, he is experiencing the harshest May of his life.

    The leads’ chemistry is just beyond the charts!
    The lead girl Go Min Si is so beautiful even with minimal make up. She’s a natural!
    And of course Lee Dong Hyun is such an eye candy with his boyish smirk. Love him!
    Both great actors with undeniable chemistry indeed.
