The son of a famous court musician pursues engineering rather than music and travels for his career. Hearing that his father has died, he returns to Korea to learn the circumstances behind his death. On Halla Mountain he hears from the daughter of a great kayageum-player that his father died after hearing the kayageum-players rendition of a famous song on the subject of the importance of music.[1]
