Swing Kids 


Helmed by acclaimed hit-making director Kang Hyoung-chul (Scandal Makers, Sunny), this infectious, crowd-pleasing musical drama set during the Korean War tells the story of a rebellious North Korean solider who falls in love with dance whilst being held captive in a South Korean prison camp. Peppered with impressive dance numbers, Swing Kids stars K-pop idol Doh Kyung-soo (a.k.a. D.O.) alongside the multi-talented American star of stage and screen, Jared Grimes.

In the war torn Korean peninsula, captured North Korean and Chinese prisoners are sent to an internment camp on South Korea’s Geoje Island. North Korean soldier Rho Ki-soo (Doh) is one such captive and he must quickly assimilate to life as a prisoner of war in a camp populated by fiery radicals and guarded by bigoted American soldiers. 

Meanwhile, Sergeant Jackson (Grimes), a once-aspiring Broadway dancer, has been ordered by a superior officer to teach a handful of prisoners to tap dance in order to impress visiting international press. Holding auditions, Jackson is drawn to Rho who shows impressive moves whilst demonstrating traditional Russian marches.  And so the young North Korean is selected to join the troupe.  But what Jackson doesn’t know is that his new student has been drafted by Communist radicals to assassinate one of the top American brass.
