Minkyu, who works at an express delivery service company, dreams of becoming a professional DJ. Minkyu is preparing for his first DJ performance at his friend Jihong´s club, yet Jihong considers him as just a friend.
Express parcel delivery man Minkyu dreams to be a DJ. He is soon to perform his first deejaying at a club run by close friend Jihong. His girlfriend See-eun is grumpy because she thinks he is not fairly treated compared to what he does for the club. But actually, she also struggles dealing with a big load of task teaching students who prepare for a college entrance exam at an art academy run by her friend. ''Back from the Beat ''is the result of a cinematic attempt to draw more than what we can expect from the familiar topic of the young generation hopelessly surviving in the sweated labor environment. Camera work looks peaceful overall, but it becomes fierce now and than, and acting of the characters gradually becomes lively as story develops. It is impossible to hastily dream of hope, but the traces of desperation in their life cause resonance. [KIM Youngjin]
