Acoustic (Hangul: 어쿠스틱; RR: Eo-ku-seu-tik) is a 2010 South Korean omnibus film depicting stories of love, hope, and music among twenty-somethings - all set within the Hongdae area of Seoul.[2][3]

Synopsis[edit]

Episode 1 "Broccoli"
Se-kyung, a singer-songwriter who is suffering from a rare disease, can only survive on instant cup ramen noodles. Rejected by record executives for her "mushy" music and told only her looks sell, she runs out of the hospital in order to make known what could be her last song.
Episode 2 "Bakery Attack"
Vocalist Seong-won and drummer Hae-won decide to sell their beloved guitar out of hungry desperation. Thanks to Hae-won’s forgetfulness and mysterious thinking process, he leaves it at a bakery store, whose owner happens to be an amateur musician. He thus proceeds to preach to the two about what it really means to love music, and they seem to be inspired to pursue their dreams no matter how difficult it is. (Based on the short story "The Second Bakery Attack" by Haruki Murakami, from his first short story collection The Elephant Vanishes.[4])
Episode 3 "Unlock"
Set in the distant future, a world where music has ceased to exist and sound is used as a weapon, Ji-hoo falls for Jin-hee, an uncanny girl with a prosthetic arm. The two embark on a mission to access an iPhone, which has become a treasured relic and stores a precious song from the girl’s childhood.
