At present he stands unrivaled in the world of euphonium.Unable to forget Jeju, which to him was an island of challenges and opportunities, Adam has been visiting it for 16 years now, each visit making him more and more entranced by the island's charms. Which aspects of Jeju will he introduce to the viewers?
The journey in Jeju takes Adam to the majestic waterfalls, the ocean, and the oreums, giving him a chance to fall in love with the stunning harmony created by nature and scenery. The sounds of winds, waves, and other elements of nature greet him as he walks along the Olle Trails that lie across mountains, fields, and beaches, serving as a source of new inspiration for the musician. The sounds of life on the island are like an orchestra, from the interesting stories told by his fellow travelers to the noisy yet vibrant sounds of the market
To a musician who plays a brass instrument, Jeju's winds are fascinating. The island's winds have had a major influence on its culture as well as the lives of its residents. For instance, they had to build houses with unique features in order to withstand the strong winds. Adam experiences teamwork and harmony as he makes jipjul, the ropes that tie down the straws on thatched roofs. Jeju also has an interesting culture of believing in the wind god. Adam follows the traces of the wind god and discovers an ancient story.
Adam's journey entails diverse encounters with Jeju's sounds and winds. The deep and low tone of his euphonium meets the island, creating a magical moment of special friendships and empathy.
