Kim Sung-ryung’s 2018 Movie

Keys to the Heart (2018)

Jo-ha, a washed-up boxer, has lived his life relying on nothing but his physical strength. He was once a champion, but his glory lasted only a moment, and all he has now is his pride. He runs into his mom who left him when he was little and goes to live with her and Jin-tae, his younger brother who has autism and always seems awkward except when he plays the piano. Jin-tae always shows his brilliance and talent while playing the piano, cooking ramen, and playing video games. Jin-tae was scared at his older brother at first, who insisted on swinging his fists at people for what he wants. After being reunited for a long time, the two brothers learn what it is to be a family.
